Overview

Fourteen-year-old Joshua Adams wakes from a fifty-year sleep to find that he has escaped nuclear war--and that the genetically altered races of Earth now hail his awakening as the first fulfillment of an ancient prophecy.

For of old it was sung that the Seven Sleepers would awaken to unite their strength with Goel and join in battle against the wicked priests of the Sanhedrin.  But the choice of Josh and each member of the quest is a dangerous one.  He must survive not only the peril of the Sanhedrin but the doubt that threatens his faith and, ultimately, his commitment to Goel, his spiritual champion.

Gilbert Morris began a high school teaching career in 1956 after first pastoring several Southern Baptist churches in Arkansas.  In 1962 he was named to the staff of Ouachita Baptist University, where he taught English and later served as department chairman.  After twenty-four years at Ouachita, he accepted a position at World Evangelization College in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  He retired in 1990 to write and publish full time.

Read an Excerpt


It was almost a year after Sarah came that the adventure began. Josh was sound asleep one winter evening when he heard his name being called."Josh! Josh! Wake up!"He sat up at once, shielding his eyes against the overhead light. He saw his father standing over him, his face pale and tense."What's the matter, Dad?" he cried in sudden fear."Son," Mr.Adams said, "we've got to go to the silo. Get dressed quickly."Josh's father was a scientist who did some sort of secret work for the government. The silo had been made into a laboratory." What's wrong, Dad?" Josh asked as he started pulling on his clothes. "Is something wrong with Mom?""No, Ill explain on the way, Josh. I've given Sarah a call, but you go by and make sure she's up. Meet us in the car." He rushed out of the room without another word. Josh scrambled into his clothes, shaking from cold and fear. When he was dressed, he ran down the hall and knocked on Sarah's door. She opened it at once. She was fully dressed too, and Josh saw that her eyes were large with fear."Hurry up," Josh said. "My mom and dad are waiting for us in the car." "Do you know what's wrong?" Sarah whispered.

    Awesome!!!!

    Wow! I was looking for a book with a good and exciting story. I'm glad I found this and decided to buy a copy. THIS IS AWESOME. I also got the next 2 series and both of them are great, too. Every book is filled with exciting adventures and each one leaves you begging for more series. And so I just purchased the rest of the whole series including the lost chronicles. I can't wait to read all of them. I hope the author will write new series about the Seven Sleepers.

    Flight of the Eagles is a soaring start to the Seven Sleepers Series!

    When nuclear war erupts around the planet, Josh Adams, Sarah Collingwood, and five other teenagers are placed in sleep capsules underground to survive the terrible war. Fifty years later, Josh wakes up--unchanged or aged--to discover a completely different world from the Earth he used to know. Together with a giant, two dwarfs, and a very strange shriveled old man named Crusoe, Josh must set out to find and wake up the other Seven Sleepers so they can fulfill their quest to serve the mysterious Goel. Along the way, the Seven Sleepers are attacked by Snake People, the evil Sanhedrin, and a multitude of other enemies. Can Goel pull them through it safely? Will Josh learn to become the leader he is meant to be? Find out the answers in this excellent book!
