Our Thoughts

The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls by far exceeded our expectations. The story truly captivates you and leaves you on the edge of your seat. You can’t wait to find out what happens next.
How will they get out of this one?
What wisdom will Mary use from all her past reading?

The author, M.J. Thomas, set out to find books that would teach the Bible in a fun and imaginative way and couldn’t find any. He decided to create some stories of his own. He definitely succeeded in doing so.

It’s hard for me to say what message you will receive from these books because I believe that would be on an individual basis. I know one lesson that stuck out to us was that reading gains you wisdom and you never know when you will need to use that knowledge. {Mary is a bookworm, and it comes in handy} 

Moreover, that God is with us always and that by learning His word and commandments you will have the guidance to handle the situations you find yourself in.

One Final Note

It was very refreshing to read a book that was pure and that was a safe read. That’s not always and easy thing to say with adventure novels! I do hope the author releases MANY MORE books to this series.
