Read Alouds - The Terrestria Series
by Lisa Carothers
(Sugar Land, Texas)
The Terrestria Series by Ed Dunlop which has seven books, is an allegory of the Bible. It is the best tool, outside of the Bible that has such spiritual depth and truth for all ages. We are on book 6 out of the 7.
I have been reading them to my 10, 9 and 6 year olds. They love it! I have had to stop so many times to relay the spiritual truths in them because I did not want them to miss them. I finally told them, we will read these books every year becasue they are that good.
The story starts with a young boy who is in servitude and bondage to Argamore (Satan), until He is rescued by the Prince. (Jesus) The story develops as you follow this young boy on his journey on growth and development and all that comes with it, such as temptation, disobedience, grace, obedience and more. Though it is set in a medieval time period, one of the later books, describes the temptations of the enemy (Argarmor) in a way that you clearly see the current day temptations they are describing.
I cannot tell you how it ends as we are still on books six. I can tell you that you WILL NOT be disappointed. These books will be enjoyed by children as young as mine, all the way to adult.
