This novel of page-turning action and adventure poses the question, "If a society had no knowledge of Christianity, and then a Bible were discovered, what would happen?" Four hundred years after a deadly virus and nuclear war destroyed the modern world, a new and noble civilization emerges. In this kingdom, called Chiveis, snow-capped mountains provide protection, and fields and livestock provide food. The people live medieval-style lives, with almost no knowledge of the "ancient" world. Safe in their natural stronghold, the Chiveisi have everything they need, even their own religion. Christianity has been forgotten--until a young army scout comes across a strange book. With that discovery, this work of speculative fiction takes readers on a journey that encompasses adventure, romance, and the revelation of the one true God. Through compelling narrative and powerful character development, The Sword speaks to God's goodness, his refusal to tolerate sin, man's need to bow before him, and the eternality and power of his Word. Fantasy and adventure readers will be hooked by this first book in a forthcoming trilogy.

Excellent
I love this series. Formerly I was a big Harry Potter fan, I've always been interested in fantasy since I was a little kid. But now as an adult, and a new Christian within these last three years, I have been trying to have my entertainment be in alignment with my values in my faith. What's amazing to me about this series is how it takes my mind to a fantastic place allowing me to rest and enjoy the depth of my imagination, and yet at the same time, it's speaking about things that are directly applicable to my life. It's really special because God and the Holy Spirit are miraculous and yet they're real. No matter how much I enjoyed Harry Potter as a child, I'm never going to be a wizard, but with the main characters in the story, I am learning about moral values like patience, perseverance sacrificial love honor dignity trust, it wraps up the hero in a package that can be delivered into my real life and in the footsteps of which I can follow in my every day life. I can't ride on a broomstick like Harry Potter did, but, I can practice living with patience, and self sacrificial love and commune with God every day through prayer and trust. So what I am really attempting to get across with this review is how much I appreciate the realistic blend of fantasy and every day practical application. I am so grateful for this trilogy because it satisfies that part of my heart that wants to experience something magical something super natural, and yet at the same time it provides an entry point into my every day life because it's based on a God that exists in this world, the world that I live in. And that is miraculous.

story awesome, not so good to listen to in a car due to volume changes needed.
Really enjoyed the story. However when the reader spoke in a 'soft womans' voice, we could no hear it when travelling in our car. This si were we listen to most of the stories. To have the volume up lound enough to hear the 'soft' spoken parts menat that it was overtly loud for the regular speech. This was annoying throughout the whole audiobook. But the story was captivating enough to put up with having to keep a finger on the volume control button constantly.
