The Bark Of The Bog Owl

Saturday, April 9, 2011
Around here, everybody thinks I made the whole thing up – about the panther, about you, everything. Sometimes I wonder myself if I just dreamed it all.

Book:The Bark Of The Bog Owl by Jonathan Rogers, Broadman & Holman Publishers, 2004
The Bark Of The Bog Owl (The Wilderking Trilogy) 
Genre: Fantasy/Allegory
Target Audience: Boys 11-16
Subjects: Trust in God rather than yourself
Summary: The day he heard the bark of the Bog Owl and saw the feechiefolk boy was the day his life changed – although he didn’t know it then. Aidan arrives home to find the old prophet his father speaks so highly of, at his house, proclaiming him to the Wilderking. No one believes it, not even Aidan himself, and life seems to continue as normal, but little does he knows, his life has changed and that change will result in great adventure very soon!
Notes: This is the story of King David, told in a backwoods/medieval type of setting! It’s fun, playful and creative. It teaches the same lesson as the historic event – our trust is to be in God, not in ourselves. Sometimes the smallest, weakest person is the one God wants to use so His glory and power can be clearly seen. I highly recommend this to all young adventure seeking boys.
Recommendation Scale: 5/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

Psalm 20:7 – Some trust in chariots and some trust in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
