Mailbox Monday - May 3, 2010

Mailbox Monday is hosted each week by Marcia over at The Printed Page. It's a lot of fun, but as she warns: "Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists." I consider participation to be worth it though.

This last week I got only one book:
The Sword
Bryan Litfin
Crossway Books
Copyright Date: April 30, 2010

The product description:
This novel of page-turning action and adventure poses the question, "If a society had no knowledge of Christianity, and then a Bible were discovered, what would happen?"
Four hundred years after a deadly virus and nuclear war destroyed the modern world, a new and noble civilization emerges. In this kingdom, called Chiveis, snowcapped mountains provide protection, and fields and livestock provide food. The people live medieval-style lives, with almost no knowledge of the "ancient" world. Safe in their natural stronghold, the Chiveisi have everything they need, even their own religion. Christianity has been forgotten—until a young army scout comes across a strange book.
With that discovery, this work of speculative fiction takes readers on a journey that encompasses adventure, romance, and the revelation of the one true God. Through compelling narrative and powerful character development, The Sword speaks to God's goodness, his refusal to tolerate sin, man's need to bow before him, and the eternality and power of his Word. Fantasy and adventure readers will be hooked by this first book in a forthcoming trilogy
 This book was sent to me to read and review through LibraryThing.
