As you follow in the footsteps of Arnold's popular Advent series, you will see that he always has a great way with words.
In this book, thirteen year old Amon was enjoying playing with his friends but is ready to join his father Jotham in the temple court when his age allows. He want to be a man and he struggles between his friends and his family.
On Palm Sunday he sees a crowd that had gathered for this special day but they were having to get away from the Roman soliders that were planning on killing both his father and Jesus. His father Jotham had been accused of a terrible crime, Amon is willing to give up his childhood days and try to save his father.
Amon is there when he hears Jesus address the people and is present when Judas betrays our precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
This book is broken down in chapters and is easy to use for the family devotion for Lent and goes through Easter Sunday. I do not know what Lent is as I am a Christian first but follow the Southern Baptist teaching. But I still enjoyed reading what a young boy saw through his eyes and the story that goes alone with it.
This book was provided to me by the Children's section of Kregel Pubications in order for me to do this review.
