We are so excited about this book! After reading Jotham’s Journey last Christmas, when we found out that Arnold Ytreeide had written one for Easter, we were thrilled. We know you will be too! He is such a talented writer, weaving in the fiction with accurate Biblical detail. We were on the edge of our seats each night, waiting for the next chapter.
From the Publisher:
Following in the footsteps of his widely popular Advent series–Jotham’s Journey, Bartholomew’s Passage, and Tabitha’s Travels–well-known author Arnold Ytreeide presents a captivating story to take families through the season of Lent, culminating on Easter Sunday.
Thirteen-year-old Amon, the son of Jotham and Tabitha, enjoys playing with his friends but is also ready to join his father in the temple court where only men are allowed. Eager to be considered a man, Amon struggles to divide his time betweenhis friends and his duties to family and faith. But when Jotham is falsely accused of a terrible crime, Amon willingly sacrifices his childhood ways in order to save his father’s life. Along the way, he sees the jubilant crowds that gathered on Palm Sunday, outwits the Roman soldiers that planned to kill both his father and Jesus, hears the Messiah address the angry crowds, is present during the daring betrayal of Judas Iscariot, and witnesses the ultimate sacrifice made on Good Friday.
With short, exciting chapters, reflections for family devotions, and advice for making Lent a meaningful experience, Amon’s Adventure will help families discover anew the spiritual power of the resurrection story.
