God made us different for a reason. He needs our diverse talents!
Instead of making horseshoes or baking bread, Javan and Lia would rather be knights in the King's army. "We'll be the most famous, bravest knights the king ever had," Lia says. But there are many ways to wear the King's armor; ways not even Javan and Lia understand until the King reveals a secret that makes the two young villagers the real heroes.
Award-winning author Rachel Ann Nunes teams up with talented painter Jay Bryant Ward to tell a medieval allegory with beautiful, lifelike paintings that create magic on every page. This compelling fable of knights and kings, bakers and blacksmiths, is a follow-up to the author's Daughter of a King, which has sold more than 50,000 copies.
The Secret of the King teaches that we've all been given different talents and abilities. In the battle between good and evil, God blessed us with diverse talents in order for us to better reach out, serve His children, and be victorious in the end.
