Foundlings (The Peleg Chronicles, book one)

This one is on my ‘to read’ list. I’ve heard lots of great things about it:

“Well done! A scripturally faithful, and yet realistically creative work. We tend to think of the men and women of old as sanctified cavemen. You brought them to life before our mind’s eye. You should have seen my kids faces when I got to the last chapter and put it on hold till the next night. They couldn’t believe what I was doing to them. We pray God’s blessings on your work, will be happy to endorse it, and most importantly, look forward to the next book in the Peleg Chronicles.” –Homeschooling Today Magazine, Steve Murphy, Publisher

“Bible-believing Christians will get a bang out of this book. It re-supposes early human history in a refreshing way, and spins a bundle of intertwined yarns that are entertaining and imaginative. Its heroes depend on the Lord for help. Unlike other fantasy works, this one contains no magic, no evolution, and no humanism.” –The Christian Fantasy Review, Phyllis Wheeler

“It is refreshing to be entertained by a story that has faith in God as its centerpiece. Matthew Harding, in his book Foundlings, portrays a fantasy epic that is both compelling and God-honoring. The tale entertains, uplifts and inspires readers of all ages. But most importantly, it fosters a Biblical worldview and Godly character into the hearts and minds of our youth.” –Squires2Knights Ministries, Jeff Purkiss, founder and author

The Little Brown Sparrow

Amazon reader review: The little brown bird was beaten down by the cruel comments of other more beautiful birds. Withdrawing and hiding in a large tree, she cried. Then she heard some comforting words from someone speaking to a large crowd, telling them that God takes care of little brown sparrows. Upon hearing those words, she rejoiced that Jesus had spoken of her in teaching the crowd.

The Awakened City (Christian Adventure) (Swords of Men and Angels)

In the beginning of Earth’s history, mankind is quickly spreading across the lands. Adam and Eve’s children grow in numbers and increase in knowledge, subduing everything before them even the great dinosaurs. With increasing imagination of the arts and the shaping of stone, they build great cities of magnificent splendor. They master the forging of steel and make great weapons of war. Slowly they forget their Creator, as their strength leads to pride and evil desires. They gather and conquer with war.
As the sons of Cain increase in wickedness, the sons of Seth stand against them with great faith in their Creator. Stories turn to legend as one sword rises to infamy. Said to be forged by the hand of God, it gives the wielder great victories and possibly immortality.

    Some of these have already gone back up in price – a warning I know you always give us. I accidentally bought one of these with 1 click and had it charged to my credit card. Just so other readers know, if you do this, you can look at your digital purchases, get a refund and check “accidental purchase” as the reason. I thought that was kind of interesting and kind of amusing that I am not the only one who has made accidental purchases. 🙂

    Anyway, thanks for sharing these. I always enjoy these lists you do.

    Thanks as always for these.

    “Unlike other fantasy works, this one contains no magic, no evolution, and no humanism.”

    Trying to remember the last fantasy work I read which mentions evolution, other than one by Terry Pratchett which has a very amusing creation plus evolution episode – I think it’s The Last Continent.

      I assumed the author or whoever wrote the blurb probably was grouping sci fi and fantasy together.
