Kingdom’s Call

Wednesday, September 30, 2015
After that night, Gavin set his mind to eliminating the Followers as quickly and forcefully as possible. He immersed himself in the task, but as the days and weeks passed, he discovered that this challenge was much greater than he had anticipated. He was fighting an elusive enemy who never attacked the Noble Knights in retaliation. With every haven of Followers he routed out, two more would take its place.

Book: Kingdom's Call (Kingdom, Book 4) by Chuck Black, Multnomah Publishers, 2007

Genre: Allegory
Target Audience: Boys and Girls 11-19
Subjects: Salvation, Power, Trust in God
Summary: “Look into my eyes, Gavin,” the Prince said. “I have been calling you. The peace you seek you will find if you follow Me.” A life changed. The most determined of the Noble Knights, the one who most hates those who follow the one who claimed to be the Prince, the man who filled the prisons to overflowing with Followers – this man encounters the Prince. On his way to hunt down more Followers, chasing them, even out of Chessington into the lands of the Outdwellers, Gavin is struck down and finally encounters all he has been seeking. Encountering the Prince is just the beginning though. Pledging his life to the Prince’s service and learning to boldly declare Him, even to the Outdwellers is much harder!
Notes: Kingdom’s Call is the fourth in The Kingdom Series. The Kingdom series is allegory focused on retelling Bible stories in terms of knights and sword fights and castles. Each book focuses on characters learning to put their faith in the one true King and dedicate their lives to His service. The characters face struggles and doubts and failures and have to keep turning back to the King. The books shorten the time frame to days or weeks instead of years or decades or even centuries so as to cover more of the overall timeline of the Bible.
In this book Gavin represents Saul/Paul. He encounters Jesus on the road to arrest more Christians, faces the challenge of getting the other disciples to accept him and receives his commission to preach the Gospel to the Gentiles.
