|Religious tract, Archeology Mar 4, 2008|
|What pretends to be archeology or science here, is actually a |
fundamentally Christian indoctrination lecture.
I know some scientists that would take real offense at that,
but I don't. What bothers me is that young minds might think this
reflects archeology. They actually use explosives in several places in this book, and talk about dragons, Satan, spirits, curses and demons.
There is no history of real note involved at all except quotes from the scriptures.The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark was what this book reminded me of.
Science has been about banishing superstitions
that made people afraid.
|Good Story Nov 4, 2007|
|This was my third Cooper Kids book I read, and I must say it wasn't as exciting as the others, but still definitely a good story.|
Archeologist Dr. Jacob Cooper and his two kids, Jay and Lila, have arrived in the Middle East to find out the secret behind a mysterious door reported to have been hidden under the earth in a large. . .well, throat, or opening in the ground. But someone mysterious is trying to stop them. . .
|Great for all ages! Nov 2, 2006|
|This book (being Peretti's first to be published) is probably one of the best christian fiction books for a kid. It entertians while it give a good message. It has a big twist, and I must point out that peretti did a great job on character detail and plot! A hands on book for all ages that will have you (if your a kid) Under the covers with a flash light and this book up all night, same thing with an adult (exept they probably won't need a flash light). Everyone needs to read this book, now (don't take that as a threat. But this one will be one of those books that you will always remember.)|
Now get ready becuase your going to be on the edge of your seat, and at the end fall off of it! Read this book, becuase if you don't, yoo are going to miss out on alot!
Over all, a must read for all ages!!!
|Very Good Book Sep 24, 2006|
|I thought this book was very good. It had me at the edge of my seat. It was very faith-building and I did a Bible study on it. Every kid should read this book.|
|Good vs Evil - the next round Feb 6, 2006|
|While visiting a book fair recently, I came across a whole pile of young adult fiction and picked up titles randomly without even reading the back covers. I had no clue therefore that Frank Peretti specializes in Christian fiction, but it didn't take me long to discover that this is no ordinary fiction series.|
A combination of Indiana Jones and the Hardy Boys, the main characters are Dr. Cooper, an archaeologist and explorer of deep religious conviction, and his two children Jay and Lila, who accompany him on his expeditions as his assistants.
This first adventure takes them to the nation of Nepur, where a mysterious door stands in a deep cavern. Local folklore indicates that the place is cursed, but that a treasure beyond belief lies waiting behind door number one.
The Coopers are tested by the greed of local authorities, local legend, and a Shaman with beliefs different to their own Christian doctrine. The story essentially focuses on the constant battle between good and evil, and while the plot is good, there are too many cliches and it's a tad heavy in places where the dogma is laid on a bit too thickly.
