armor of god series
Based on the Scriptural Armor of God (Ephesians 6:13-17), the six-book ARMOR OF GOD fantasy-adventure series appeals to the universal and timeless quest for virtue and inner strength. The story themes and “Brother Coll’s Catechism Lessons,” weaved into each story, are perfect for children preparing for or who have recently made their First Confession and First Holy Communion.
“Therefore, put on the armor of God,
that you may be able to resist on the evil day and,
having done everything, to hold your ground.
So stand fast with your loins girded in truth,
clothed with righteousness as a breastplate,
and your feet shod in readiness for the gospel of peace.
In all circumstances, hold faith as a shield,
to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
And take the helmet of salvation and the
sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
~ Ephesians 6:13-17

This is a wonderful read. The young and young at heart alike will love the stories. The illustrations are fun. And The book leaves you desperate for the next in the series. An excellent first book in what looks like it will be another wonderful series from the masterful pen of Theresa Linden!
Linden weaves into the story salient points from the Catechism of the Catholic Church that instructs young adults about the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Yet, Linden does it without making the reader feel like they are in a classroom. Instead, she shares the truths of the Catholic faith in an entertaining manner.

I knew Theresa Linden could write for teens. I knew she could write for adults. I didn't know that she could write equally well for young children and illustrate as well! But, she knocks it out of the park with the first installment in the Armor of God series.
