"As we speak there is a great army approaching. They intend to take the city and all of it's spoils. The King will allow this because we have turned our backs on Him and on the Code"
Book: Kingdom's Hope by Chuck Black, Multnomah Books, 2006
Kingdom's Hope (Kingdom, Book 2) 
Genre: Allegory
Target Audience: Boys 12-16
Subjects: Faith in God, Following and obeying Him in hard times, His Word
Summary: The people are going to be free, settled in their own land, with the King as their ruler rather than one of them. But when they get too comfortable, they start desiring to be like the other nations nearby. In very little time at all, they have turned their backs on the King and His Code and are taken captive by their enemies. Now is the time for Leinad and the others to stand strong and faithful.
Notes: This book is pure allegory! Chuck Black takes readers through the Old Testament from the Exodus, through the period of the kings, through captivity, return, and the conclusion of the Old Testament. He just speeds it up and has it all happening to the same character rather than multiple characters. Leinad represents Moses in the beginning, then multiple prophets through the period of the kings and captivity, then Nehemiah at the return.
Recommendation Scale: 5

Jeremiah 1:14-17 - The LORD said to me, " I will pronounce my judgments on my people because of their wickedness in forsaking me, in burning incense to other gods and in worshiping what their hands have made."Get yourself ready! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you.
