Daniel and the Blankety Blank

I know, I know. It’s been a coon’s age since I posted.

But, I’d like to officially announce that the outline for Daniel and the Blankety Blank has officially begun! Well, truthfully, it began a little while ago, but again…this is the first post since then.

Contenders for the title are:

Daniel and the Babylonian Seal

Daniel and the Trial of Eden

Daniel and the Gate of Eden

Babylonian Seal was the original plan, but my tween daughter couldn’t get over the thought of

     Versus   

So, we’ll see. Until then, happy reading!


But Nathan, how can I purchase the first three books in the Sons and Daughters series? I’m glad you asked.

Voilà.

The Serpent’s Abyss Receives 5 Star Award

I’m excited to share that The Serpent’s Abyss has received a 5 Star Review Award from Reader’sFavorite.com!

Here’s a snippet from the review. Enjoy!

Author’s new book receives a warm literary welcome.

Readers’ Favorite announces the review of the Christian – Fantasy/Sci-Fi book “Daniel and the Serpent’s Abyss” by Charles Nathan Lumbatis, currently available at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1734303298.

Readers’ Favorite is one of the largest book review and award contest sites on the Internet. They have earned the respect of renowned publishers like Random House, Simon & Schuster, and Harper Collins, and have received the “Best Websites for Authors” and “Honoring Excellence” awards from the Association of Independent Authors.

“Reviewed By Liz Konkel for Readers’ Favorite

Daniel is back with his next adventure as he and his friends face their toughest struggle yet. The battle with the Enemy represents the battle between good and evil. Faith is a strong element of the story…Daniel and his friends have grown in their faith as the Three have guided them on their journey from the beginning, [helping] just when they were needed most. This faith has grown over the last couple of books [and is tested] as the ultimate fight against the Enemy is approaching. The Three seem to have become silent which threatens to shake Daniel’s faith in them.

Charles Nathan Lumbatis explores themes of family…[as Daniel] discovers a family of his own and now faces a dilemma…his biological mother wants to get in contact with him. This pushes him to look into his family’s past, which has a connection to the Enemy, and to make a choice about whether he wants to meet her. His relationship with Gabriela continues to be explored through their [quest], which shows that the two seem to have drifted and pushes Daniel to wonder why she has become distant on their journey.

Daniel and the Serpent’s Abyss has all the components that make a fantasy adventure truly epic: faith, action, family, and the battle between good and evil.”

Looking for Christian Books for Your Kids?

Want to know the spiritual content of the Sons and Daughters series prior to getting it for your kids?

Here’s a quick snapshot of the Christian themes woven throughout each book.

Daniel and the Sun Sword: Thirteen-year-old Daniel wants a normal family. Instead, he gets adopted by God and sent on a quest to find the Sun Sword, one of four Weapons of Power that he and his friends will use to seal away the Spirit of the Age. But the dark forces of the world won’t sit idly by, and Daniel discovers he’ll need the help of his Heavenly Father to survive.

Spiritual Themes: A general introduction to God and salvation; sonship theology; working through anger; forgiveness; trusting God with our lives; trusting in God’s sovereignty; spiritual warfare; spiritual beings.

 

Daniel and the Triune Quest: Daniel and his best friend, Ben, travel to India to find the Triune Shield. The journey is anything but peaceful, though, as they have to contend with their own conflict while fighting the Enemy’s minions. But all this pales in comparison to the hardship they face when they discover that obtaining the Shield will require a greater sacrifice than either expected.

Spiritual Themes: A deeper look at salvation and the Triune God; personal interaction with Jesus; spiritual warfare; the role of dying to self in sanctification; forgiving and reconciling with other believers; the dangers of relying on one’s own strength.

 

 

Daniel and the Serpent’s Abyss: Daniel and his friends set off on a quest to rescue their friend from the control of the Enemy and find the Abyssal Staff—the last Weapon of Power they need to bind the Spirit of the Age. But this will require them to descend into the Enemy’s lair and face him directly.

Spiritual Themes: Salvation explained on a deeper level; personal interaction with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; letting go of control; spiritual warfare; the consequences of trusting in the flesh; transformation that comes through the indwelling power of the Spirit.
