Thursday Book Review – The Contest

Last week, dear ones, I reviewed a book series Kayliegh and I had started. We managed to finish the second book this week, they’re not very long. The Contest is the second book in the six book series ‘The Truth Chronicles’ written by AiG’s Tim Chaffey and Joe Westbrook. The book series centers around four teens, one of which is a creationist.

In book two one of the three unbelieving friends becomes a Christian, and I particularly liked how the fruit of their salvation was focused on. While the teen has now bowed the knee to Christ, they still aren’t sure about creationism. In this book the four teens come up with a contest that involves returning to the same time period in the past as they did in the first book. There they’ll review what they would expect to find if Evolution or Creation were true.

The book ends in a cliff hanger, and we’re very excited to start the third book. One thing that I commented about last week was the puppy love in the first book. There was next to none of that in the second book so there were no googalie-eyed paragraphs that needed to be skipped for Kayliegh’s sake. However, what was present in this second book was more apologetics, particularly in regards to Jax’s anger at God due to the death of his father. They also answer more questions often brought up by evolutionism. I highly recommend this book series to youth groups, or any young adult in your life. It has a high focus on science, integrity, hard work, and Christian Creationism. You can find the full series here or this book here. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
