Sir Rowan And The Camerian Conquest by Chuck Black

Recommendation: Highly Recommended

Author Chuck Black once again delivers an allegorical masterpiece! In Sir Rowan and the Camerian Conquest we live the tale of a young knight’s rise to prestige, power and wealth and his subsequent downfall as pride overtakes him. Through the difficult lessons he must learn and the consequences he must face, he surrenders his life the King and to His Son, the Prince. In what the author calls “one very loose interpretation” of the end times, Sir Rowan and his brother, Sir Lijah, are the two witnesses spoken of in Revelation 11. They speak boldly for the King and in the end receive their reward.

Positives: The story is filled with Biblical allegory on every page it seems. The storyline is imaginative and captivating. There are also discussion questions (and answers) for each chapter at the end of the book. These are great for helping your child unlock the allegories and see the Scriptural truths for themselves. I also appreciated the author’s commentary at the end which unfolded his purposes for writing the book.

Negatives: None

Talking Points: The discussion questions offer many Scripture references as they help you understand much of the allegory in the story. The passage that kept coming to my mind was I John 2:15-17. As Sir Rowan sought the applause of men, ask your children, what in this world do they love? What captures their heart, what do they spend their time doing? Where has pride crept into their hearts? Proverbs 6:16-19 speaks of God’s hatred of pride. God desires a humble servants heart as spoken of in passages like Psalm 51:17 and Is. 66:1-2.

Age Level: 10 years old and up
