The Broken Window

Thursday, October 17, 2013
Stubbornly, she curled her fingers into a fist, unwilling to let go, not when everything inside her was begging her to heed God’s message – trust, listen, remember. “I can’t remember,” she whispered. “I tried, but I just can’t remember. If it’s so important…help?”

Book: The Broken Window (Threshold Series) by Christa Kinde, Zondervan Publishers, 2013

Genre: Speculative Fiction
Target Audience: Girls and Boys 11-15
Subjects: Angels, Family Relationships, Friendship, Spiritual Warfare, Trust in God
Summary: Christmas is coming! There is every reason to be excited, but Prissie finds reasons to not be overly excited. The angels she has come to care about are involved in some serious battles. An angel has been taken by the evil ones and the search for what is hidden is heating up. A powerful fallen angel is in the area and is creating all kinds of trouble. In the midst of it, Prissie is being challenged on all fronts to view the people around her the way God does, including those she dislikes. When the battle culminates on Christmas Prissie has an important role to play.
Notes: The Broken Window is the third in a kid-friendly series dealing with serious issues such as spiritual warfare. In this third book, Prissy, a fourteen year old girl is beginning to understand a bit more of what it means to follow God and live His way and see others the way He does. It’s also a picture of friendship and what it means to truly be a good friend. Like other speculative fiction, it speculates “what if”, in this case, “what if someone could see all the angels around them and could interact with them”. But it does a good job carefully not doing anything to contradict Scripture in its speculations, but rather teaches and enforces Biblical concepts. I highly recommend this to upper elementary and young teens.
Spiritual Content Recommendation Scale: 5/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

Romans 8:38-40 – For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
