The Minions Of Time

Tuesday, March 15, 2011
Owen’s problem was that he himself wasn’t completely convinced of who he was. Every time the thought hit him that he had a father, a mother, a sister, and even a future bride, his heart leaped. But when he thought of the responsibility that came with it he backed away. How could he convince anyone to follow him if he didn’t totally believe it?

Book: The Minions of Time (The Wormling) by Jerry B. Jenkins and Chris Fabry, Tyndale House Publishers, 2008

Genre: Fantasy/Allegory
Target Audience: Boys 12-18
Subjects: perseverance, trust, faith
Summary: Owen has now discovered the identity of the King’s Son and found him, but he can not yet embrace it. His mission now takes him back to the highlands where the dragon has been controlling the King’s daughter and the daughter of the King of the West. Meanwhile, his friends in the lowlands are desperately trying to gather an army to follow the King’s Son, but the dragon is determined to not only stop them, but destroy them all.
Notes: This, the fourth book in the Wormling series, continues the story of Owen Reeder as he reads and tries to understand and apply the words of the Book of the King as he undergoes a search for the one who can save both worlds from the evil dragon determined to rule them. It is an allegory with the King and Book of the King – much of which resembles Scripture. The lessons challenge one to closely examine the heart and stay faithful even in times of despair and hopelessness.
Recommendation Scale: 5/5
