Ashton is just a typical small town. But when a skeptical reporter and a prayerful pastor begin to compare notes, they suddenly find themselves fighting a hideous New Age plot to subjugate the townspeople, and eventually the entire human race. The battle rages in the spirit world between Rafar, leading his legions from the world of darkness, and Tal, leading his army of angels. The battle is unseen by the townspeople but they feel its presence and the vortex of evil threatening to annihilate them. Pastor Hank Busche and newspaperman Marshall Hogan join the battle and lead the human crusade against the evil demons. The fighting is vicious and the outcome is unforgettable.
Moonlight strikes the mysterious Bloodstone, symbol of God’s great love for mankind, and three children are whisked through a portal into strange and wonderful worlds. Adventure awaits Denise, Nathan, and Joshua in the Sea of Mirrors, where the children are nearly crushed by the weight of their sins . . . The Menagerie, whose prisoners are doomed to live in pure selfishness . . . Biiq, where the doubting Denise experiences the unfathomable, self-giving love of Jesus Christ . . . And other astonishing places and experiences in the domain of the Imager. With the help of Aristophenix, the world’s worst poet; Listro Q, a tall, purple dude with dyslectic speech; Samson, part dragonfly and part ladybug; and the Weaver, who weaves God’s plans into each of our life tapestries, the children learn the powers and secrets of living as citizens of the kingdom of heaven. But potent adversaries are pitted against them. The crafty Illusionist and the icy blue Bobok are out to deceive and destroy at every turn. With echoes of A Pilgrim’s Progress, The Chronicles of Narnia, and Hinds Feet in High Places, this engaging allegory for the Christian life follows its characters from unbelief, to conversion, to spiritual growth and maturity. The Bloodstone Chronicles is more than entrancing-it is a sparkling-fresh depiction of our journey toward the heart and character of God.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
