The Fields Of Clon Miarth (book review)

This is the third book in the series Samuel Schiller wrote around the life of Evan MacKeth. In the previous book Evan had been a part of a major battle against the priests of Moloch and was seriously injured, but did survive.

In the opening of this book Evan is laying in a bed injured both in spirit and in body. He feels as though God does not care about him any longer and wishes that his life would end. He has no idea where Aine Ceallaigh (whom he has grown to love) is. Julian (the Holy Spirit in the form of a bird) urges him to get up and move forward.

Evan begins his journey to find Aine, but is led by God to go a different direction, though he does not know or understand why, but knows he must follow God’s leading. Julian goes a different direction, leaving Evan on his own.

Aine had been captured by another man who loves her, but does not believe in, nor serve God. Although he is rough at times and is on the enemy’s side, he protects her.

Throughout the entire book there is a lot of battles against the goblin army described in great detail. It goes between battles that Evan is in, Aine is in and other important characters. The goblin army is much greater than the human army. Many die or are wounded on both sides.

Throughout this story one can see that there is to be a reliance upon God’s leading through His Holy Spirit. Often the characters are placed in nearly impossible situations and miracles occur.

Without giving away too much of the story, there is enough fighting going on in this story that if it were made into a movie, it would most likely be a rated R movie. I will not give away how the battle ends in the end as to which side won or lost.

If you love to read high level action and battle stories, this book will be an excellent read. I also recommend it for any believer to be encouraged to do battle against the spiritual forces at work in our lives and the world. God is the God of the impossible and it shows up very well in this story. This story is also continued in more books to follow.

Priests Of Moloch (book review)

This book is a short novel continuing the story of Evan MacKeth from the book “Warrior Of The Son“. It is a teen/young adult book following the life of Evan who has chosen to leave his family’s religion of Moloch to follow Iosa (Jesus).

In the previous book it ends with Evan fighting the evils of darkness and getting seriously injured. The start of this book opens with Evan injured and unable to get up. He has learned of his love for Aine, his king brother’s daughter.

The king, Osric, is trying to make amends to his relationship with his half-brother. Osric has chosen to believe in Iosa and destroy the temples of Moloch.

Unable to do anything, Evan is discouraged and begins to question God’s work in his life. In his quiet time, Evan feels that something very evil is about to occur but does not know what it is.

Fighting against Iosa, the priests of Moloch mount an attack upon the king and his people to regain control.

This story has a lot of fighting and violence described. The main characters show a solid trust in God and His strength in their stand against evil. Throughout the story various scriptures are quoted, though no direct reference as to where it is found.

I highly recommend reading this story for a short read that will encourage you to stand strong for God and to trust in His strength to do all things.

Warrior Of The Sun (book review)

This story is the first in a series of six books that are a young adult books looking at the life of a young boy, Evan MacKeth, as he grows older. It is written in a similar fashion to the books by C. S. Lewis, Chronicles of Narnia.

Evan as an angry young fourteen-year-old boy who is befriended by Julian. His father is the king of the land, but only outside of marriage and the belief of the land is in Moloch and their priests.

Julian introduces Evan and his mother to Iosa Christus (Jesus Christ), which is against the law of the land and his father. Evan finds himself in battle against goblins and ultimately against a creature from the heart of darkness.

Throughout the story there are various scripture references quoted. The goal of the author was to highlight the love, mercy and grace of Jesus Christ in story that young people will enjoy reading. It has parts of love, hate and fighting.

Though it is a simple story, it reveals some profound truth of who Jesus is and how He works in the lives of people.

If you like short and simple novels of adventure and excitement with a Christian message, this book is a great read. It will even challenge your walk and belief in Jesus. I highly recommend reading this book.

Epoch–The Rise And Fall Of The West (book review)

Kevin Swanson takes a brief, but very well covered look at the rise and fall of the West–Europe and America. He begins by looking at what made the West so great that it became the major powers of the world.

Going back into ancient history, he looks at various nations and what brought them to great power and what led to their downfall. As he looks at these various factors, he brings it to the present and shows how Europe and America has made the same choices leading to rise and fall.

The overall view of this entire book is one of the Christian view, that with God a nation will rise and without God a nation will fall. Some of the things he looks at are: the rise and fall of the church, Christian civilization, humanity, charity, science, economy, culture, sexuality, liberties, and education.

Looking at these various areas of life, he points out how the enemy, the devil, uses men to turn the heart of the nation away from God and look to self. Morality and the commands of God are thrown out in seeking self-pleasure at any cost.

About 29 pages are dedicated to giving sources to things he quotes or references throughout the book.

This book is very hard hitting at both the “church” and the nation as a whole. It reveals very clearly how Europe has fallen and America is now falling. Since this book was written in 2021, it also includes current events of the recent riots in America, LGBTQTIA+, and COVID worldwide.

I highly recommend everyone to read this book. It is a long book, but an easy read. The flow of the reading is very easy to understand and keep one reading. Once I started reading this book, it was very difficult to put it down. It will also break your heart when it opens your eyes to what is going on with the big picture of the nations.

It’s Time To Be Bold (book review)

Michael W. Smith is a very accomplished Christian singer/song writer that has been singing for many years with many of his own songs. Many of his songs are well known by most believers and some have even crossed over to secular charts and popularity. He writes this short book giving a short view of what he believes in. Each chapter deals with a different area of life that is important.

He tells short stories of experiences he has had throughout his musical career. With each story he ties in verses from the Bible and from some of his songs. Overall, he shows what it means to be a believer and what it means to be bold and why it is important.

At the end of each short chapter, he challenges the reader in how to apply what he is talking about. His primary motivation is to point people to Jesus and to live for God by being His witness in this world. He discusses how to find your place in this world and going through tough times. Some of the topics he covers are never being alone, following directions, a listening Father, running into battle and more.

Michael uses many of his own troubles to show as an example of how even he has troubles. You can hear his heart of compassion for people and his desire that they know Jesus.

This is a very short and easy book to read. I highly recommend it to anyone who would like to grow in their faith and belief.
