Thursday Book Review – Truth Chronicles The Theif

Hello beloved brethren, I hope this post finds you all doing well! Kayliegh and I finally finished the fourth book in the six book series The Truth Chronicles. It’s been a busy couple weeks, but any free time we had we spent reading. It was well worth the read! If you missed the other book reviews you can find them here, here, and here.

Book four finds three of the four youths born again believers, with one still one the fence. The science fair is coming up again, and the group has paired off to invent some truly amazing projects! Once again you get that feeling that science is way cooler than text books can do justice. Since reading this book Kayliegh has done more science experiments then I can keep up with! She wants to build, experiment, and learn all about science, owing mostly to the practical application shown in these books. It helps that the main characters are young, which gives the reader a sense that they too can be a great inventor.

My favorite part of book four was the integrity shown by the two main characters who seemed to have feelings for one another in past books. As they’re both Christians now, the young man describes how they came up with a plan to avoid temptation. This is exactly the type of message youth groups need to hear! As always, there’s also a clear Gospel presentation in this book. The conflict moves past the evolution vs creation debate in this book, to become more about the meat of Biblical truth. The message is deepening with the arguments, and you see the evangelical outreach spread past the four main characters to other kids they know.

All in all I can’t recommend this book enough, particularly for youth groups and young people. If you have teenagers read it with them, as it gives a particularly accurate depiction of what our young people face when sharing their faith. You can find the kindle version here, or the entire book series here. As always, dear friends, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

  1. Sister, I’m happy that this book series has been a blessing to your daughter. It’s wonderful when Christian authors can illustrate for children how to apply Biblical truths to their everyday reality and even get them thinking about how they should serve the Lord when they’re older.

    1. Thank you, brother! That’s what I love about these books, they address the issues our teens are going to face. It’s not sugar coated, but it’s also not vulgar in anyway. For some reason I find a lot of worldliness within outreaches for youth, I’m not sure why. It discourages born again young adults, while pulling the unsaved into a pizza and fuzz ball coma, never realizing the wrath of God is real. This book gives the clear difference between the world and Christ’s Church, while keeping youngsters interested with the adventurous plot. I think a lot of youth groups could learn from this type of teaching. My husband and I met in youth group, we learned a lot more about demons and ‘drunkenness of the Spirit’ then we ever did about scripture. I was never even told why we needed to be redeemed, why Christ went to that cross. It’s heartbreaking to look back and realize how many other kiddos were led astray along side us!

      1. I can imagine that many Christian youth workers become more focused on keeping kids and teens entertained and docile than teaching them Scripture. Parents assume their kids are getting plenty of Bible instruction along with the fun and games, but as you testify, that may not be the case.

    1. You blessed me so much with this comment sister, thank you so much for your kindness! I thank our God always for you, as well. Salvation was far more than I ever deserved, but God has shown even more mercy in that He has given us one another for correction and encouragement! He truly is worthy of all praise!

        A blooper is here. Fix it and edit this section out of my comment…?

      2. Oh my goodness, thank you so much sister! That should have read evolution vs creation. The way I misspelled it could have been considered fowl language, even if its in abbreviated form I never want that to happen! Thank you so much for pointing this out!
