Great book for Youth ages 10-14. My son enjoyed reading them and I also enjoyred reading them to him Action packed stories that teach children about courage and honesty. Third in a series of 4, although each book stands alone on it's own merits.
An excellent book for kids. I read the whole series to my children.
Fiction of course, but riveting reading. No Peretti books should be taken as representing realistic biblical Christianity or truth or even prophetic realities, but one must admit his Cooper kids books are a fun read and will usually keep you reading from start to finish in one sitting.
From back cover: When Jay and Lila Cooper enter the cave-tombs of Anak with their archaelogist father, the hope to find a coworker who has unaccountably disapeared. Instead, they stumble onto a frightening religion and new mysteries that soon put them all in incredible danger. a spine tingling thriller as current as todays newscasts yet as timeless as the ageold struggle between good and evil.
I disliked this book very much. I picked it up to read to my children after seeing so many great reviews. The writing is terrible. It is difficult to find the words for how bad it is. It's a cross between unbelievably corny and freaky scary. I don't think the content is at all appropriate for younger, sensitive children. Give your family the gift of A.A. Milne, L.Frank Baum, C.S. Lewis, Carolyn Keene (classic Nancy Drew), G.A. Henty, Ralph Moody, James Herriot, Robert Louis Stevenson,Rudyard Kipling. and Brian Jacques.
Great update on a bible mystery. As enjoyable a story as any of Peretti's books for adults.
