Dear Karl, Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I purchased your book at the Kidology seminar at New Church in Georgetown, Tx. I had you sign it for my two oldest boys, but had to read it first to make sure it was age appropriate and biblically sound. I read it in two sittings (and that says a lot, in and of itself)! I loved the story and it has a valuable lesson for adults as well! You could not have made a more valid point in that many Christians take our freedoms for granted. I am so excited about this book that I plan to purchase many copies and give it to our youth and those that have recently "yeilded" to the faith! I was especially pleased when I read 1 Tim 4:12! This is our youth groups motto verse and it is an excellent message for the youth of today. God bless you and the amazing ministry you have been given. I only have one question...when will the next one come out?
Perhaps the most damaging thing about the way adults present Christianity to children is the anemia. We've given our children faith stripped of adventure. Karl's new book "Order of the Ancient" changes all that. Your kids will love the high adventure and colorful characters of Karl Bastian's universe. - Larry Shallenberger, Erie, PA
It's not often you come across a book that has excellent morals and an excellent storyline. Pastor Karl presents a believable, adventursome boy with whom kids (and adults!) can relate. Reading this book will not only entertain you, it will present you with truths that challenge you to view your life and relationship with God in a different light. Good luck putting it down! - Melissa Hunt, Centerville, OH
I am a 5th grade teacher at a Christian school in Anaheim CA. One of my roommates heard you speak and bought your book. I read it in one sitting last weekend, I couldn't put it down! My class has many questions about the value of Harry Potter and what God says about the occult. After reading this book I can't help but reccomend it. I hope my students are caught up in the story as well as in the power of God's love throughout the book. Well done. -Laura Welling, Vineyard Christian School. Anaheim CA
"Why?" It's the question that all kids ask, but for Brent, it leads to the most incredible answer possible. Your kids will find themselves swept away to a place in the not so distant future where God is forgotten by the mainstream populace. As they read this incredible story, they will find their faith challenged, strengthened, and anchored in a very powerful truth: God's Word is precious and powerful! Do yourself a favor and purchase several copies to hand out to all of your family and friends. What I want to know is when do we get to see the made for TV movie, comic books, action figures, t-shirts, Monopoly Games, and other cool spin-off stuff from this most excellent of children's literature. I can't wait for the sequel and maybe even a prequel. - Tony Waller, Jonesboro, AR
I loved this book! Spiritual lessons delicately interwoven with a fascinating story. Who is this Sovereign and what did he do to make people take such high risks in following him? It makes you wonder! I believe kids of all different backgrounds will love the story of Brent getting answers to (some of) his many questions. - Els Zuidweg, Amsterdam (NL)
I just finished. WOW! I thought it was great - you'll have to write a sequel!! My church group loved the book as well. How refreshing to have a group of kids so into a book of this nature. Thanks! - John and Cindy Martin, Virginia Beach, VA
(In a letter to a friend, forwarded to me) You so need to read Pastor Karl's new book, Order of the Ancient. It is so awsome - its the fastest I have read a 300 page book, a little less than 3 days. It is so awsome! - Chad
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN
A FAMILY WITH 6 KIDS READS THE BOOK?
"I fell asleep every night as my dad read the
book. It's a very interesting book, but I'm just four years
old--so I get tired fast."
