HASH(0xa30d4450) out of 5 stars We Hardily Recommend this Book (Todd & Terri - Feb. 23 2006
By Terri - Published on
Format: Paperback
We started reading Duncan's War by Douglas Bond together as a family sometime during the fall. We became so excited about the story that we had to put the children under strict orders not to touch the book during the day, but they had to wait until family reading hour. "No Peeking!" was the command they would hear when their hand would reach slyly for the book on the end table.

Duncan's War is followed by The King's Arrow and then finally Rebel's Keep. This series, called the Crown and Covenant, follows the lives of the M'Kethe family during 17th Century Scotland as they endured brutal persecution at the hand of King James and King Charles. Those that remained loyal to King Jesus called themselves the Scottish Covenanters. This is the story of those who must wrestle with honoring God and applying His word while living amidst a government that is trying to obliterate Christianity.

As a reader, I was particularly struck with what I would do if I were in this situation with my own family. While reading these stories, I had to grapple with the scriptures as I put myself in their shoes. As a father and a Christian, I want to honor God and obey His word above all else. And yet I desire desperately to protect my children from all outside harm. In the story, the children watch their father's actions as he attempts to obey King Jesus above all others, and while they do not fully understand them at the time, they come to appreciate them more fully later as they grow and mature. The father never compromises his integrity in the midst of war. He clearly keeps the perspective that this life on earth is not the only one we live for. There is one to come. How we live and die here will show Whom it is we honor. This is how I want to live. I want to set a strong example for my children as I live out God's word even during difficult times. While reading these stories, I was struck once again that how we live in this life has implications in the next. We are to live for the Audience of One.

I had the chance to meet the author of this series and he is an intelligent man who cares about historical accuracy and compelling story telling. He brings history to life in his books and I highly recommend the whole series. My 12 year old son is an average reader and he could not put these books down! I love books that encourage kids to keep reading, especially when the content has historical value and encourages good morals.

Douglas Bond has done a wonderful work in re-creating the history in a mesmerizing story form of the plight and fight of the Scottish Covenanters. You will be drawn into the time and place with the M'Kethe family as they live out life in the 1600's under the persecution of the King as his dragoons. My son and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire series.
