Finding not what they expected, an ancient tragedy is uncovered, shocking and scaring them

#1 - The Ancient Omen By Lena Wood, Standard Publishing, 2006
The Ancient Omen (Elijah Creek & the Armor of God)
Genre: Realistic with hints of supernatural
Target Audience: Boys 14-18
Subject: Truth
Summary: They may have lost some of the other pieces of the armor of God, but Elijah and his clan are not giving up. They have clues pointing them towards where the next piece may be buried. However, they find a lot more than they bargained for when they dig up an old well. It's time for Elijah to see why truth matters as they search for the belt of truth.
Notes: This is the 2nd in the Elijah Creek & The Armor of God series, a powerful realistic fiction book that adds in elements that hint at the supernatural. A mysterious suit of armor was found buried in an old Church, then disappeared again. Elijah's friends believe the armor represents the Armor of God from Ephesians 6. They are quick to point out that it is not the physical object that matters, but what it represents, even while there are hints, or perhaps, hopes that it holds some kind of power in of itself.
      This book does a really good job with it's point. Truth matters. Elijah isn't quite convinced when Reece tries to demand he tell the truth, but when he stumbles into something bigger than himself, he realizes the truth can set you free and takes another step down the path towards discovering Ultimate Truth - Jesus Christ Himself.
Recommendation Scale: 4.7
