    The King, by Lorilyn Roberts, is the highly engaging story of Daniel, a young boy who aspires to become a doctor His family is Jewish, but they do not practice their faith In fact, Daniel is not sure if he even believes in God When he unexpectedly finds himself transported in time to the days of Jesus, he is granted a front row seat to events that actually took place in the bible He meets John the Baptist, Pontius Pilate, and is witness to the spectacle of a mute whose speech is miraculously The King, by Lorilyn Roberts, is the highly engaging story of Daniel, a young boy who aspires to become a doctor His family is Jewish, but they do not practice their faith In fact, Daniel is not sure if he even believes in God When he unexpectedly finds himself transported in time to the days of Jesus, he is granted a front row seat to events that actually took place in the bible He meets John the Baptist, Pontius Pilate, and is witness to the spectacle of a mute whose speech is miraculously restored.As a result of his wildly adventurous experiences, Daniel seeks discernment to unravel the mysteries of Jesus and his relevance to the Jewish faith as it applies to himself and others.Author Lorilyn Roberts has skillfully incorporated fantasy, time travel, history and religion into a book that is entertaining, educational and inspirational The King is the second book in a series, but reads well as a stand alone The religious components are such that they are not likely to be off putting to those who might not otherwise appreciate that element But history and religion buffs are sure to appreciate the depth provided in this book which makes it all theengaging to read

    This is the second book in the Seventh Dimension series but it can definitely read as a standalone.Daniel, a young boy who lives in Israel in the middle of a war, wishes to become a doctor Although his family is Jewish, Daniel isn t sure if he believes in God Until something impossible happens He opens a door and he is literally transported back to the time when Rome ruled and Jesus of Nazareth was alive There he encounters his students, his followers and his haters but ultimately he witness This is the second book in the Seventh Dimension series but it can definitely read as a standalone.Daniel, a young boy who lives in Israel in the middle of a war, wishes to become a doctor Although his family is Jewish, Daniel isn t sure if he believes in God Until something impossible happens He opens a door and he is literally transported back to the time when Rome ruled and Jesus of Nazareth was alive There he encounters his students, his followers and his haters but ultimately he witnesses his miracles Daniel is left with a choice believe what he sees or listen to the lies and the deception that will define his future.I don t usually read books like this one Actually I generally avoid religion books but I was wrong about this one Although there is a great deal of religion, it isn t the main point Daniel is transported to the Seventh Dimension not to believe in God but to believe in himself To learn himself and make decisions that will affect his future Daniel was such a courageous, brilliant and brave young man He truly inspired me What I loved in this book though was the division between the people in that era I loved seeing how people of that time responded to the events I loved the way the author described the events A fantasy book about time travel, religion but mostly about insight and self awareness.Totally recommended

    One young man s Jewish faith comes into strong conflict with the increasing terror in modern Israel At a point when he isn t sure if God is there, he is catapulted into the past to the days when Jesus walked the earth His confusion as he comes to grips with life in an archaic setting is well written The attitudes, the customs, even the food and clothing are completely foreign and portrayed with skill by the author Daniel develops friendships and plans for his future, even though he isn t sur One young man s Jewish faith comes into strong conflict with the increasing terror in modern Israel At a point when he isn t sure if God is there, he is catapulted into the past to the days when Jesus walked the earth His confusion as he comes to grips with life in an archaic setting is well written The attitudes, the customs, even the food and clothing are completely foreign and portrayed with skill by the author Daniel develops friendships and plans for his future, even though he isn t sure whether or not he wants to return to his own time Throughout his struggle to survive and navigate a foreign time, a sinister presence, that seems demonic in nature, attempts to lure him into multiple situations and prevent him from believing that the miracles of Jesus could possibly be anything but fake My favorite scene is the chariot race where Daniel s spiritual eyes are opened and he sees the warfare in the heavenlies It s absolutely thrilling and an insightful look at spiritual warfare.I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I was not compensated, and these opinions are my own Author Felicia Mires

    I am so glad that authors like Lorilyn Robert write about demons, the occult, physic reading and differing sources of power Seventh Dimension is definitely edgy and creative, including a ventriloquist, mind reader, a person who hears animals talk and a clairvoyant There are lots of animals including, a donkey, rabbit, horses and several crows You never know what is going to come next Ms Roberts peels back and looks into the spirit realm, showcasing the battle of life good and evil And, sho I am so glad that authors like Lorilyn Robert write about demons, the occult, physic reading and differing sources of power Seventh Dimension is definitely edgy and creative, including a ventriloquist, mind reader, a person who hears animals talk and a clairvoyant There are lots of animals including, a donkey, rabbit, horses and several crows You never know what is going to come next Ms Roberts peels back and looks into the spirit realm, showcasing the battle of life good and evil And, shows it realistically with characters making wrong decisions and learning along the way I enjoyed her merge of fantasy and Israeli history My 15 year old and I listened to this in audio He liked it and hadn t listened to this genre much at all I believe writing from one person s view ischallenging Bring usbooks Ms Roberts Having never read her before, both of us agreed it starts out a bit confusing but then settles into a good pace Brad McDowell s audio voices are good I heard a digital noise in the background periodically, but it didn t distract from the story Enjoy stepping back in time and seeing from a unique perspective.I received a complimentary book from the author in exchange for my honest review
