Five stars for the reinterpretation of the story of Paul at Athens alone. Everything else was just gravy.
Mar 25, 2013 Jessica rated it it was amazing
I surprisingly enjoyed this book. I loved seeing how Gavin's (now Gavinaugh) life had changed after accepting the prince. I also loved the additional character, Keanna. I was captivated and intrigued by her and enjoyed reading about her story. When you put those two characters together, it's magic. I was a bit annoyed near the end when there was a moment of panic at the prospect of Gavinaugh dieing, but I found I was satisfied with how Chuck Black ended things. (I won't tell you if he actually s ...more
The tales of Sir Gavinaugh (Paul) continue as he begins his ministry to tell the world the good news about the Prince and His power and love! Such a thrilling retelling of Paul's ministry with an inspiring faith message of God's power over the forces of darkness and sin. It's a reminder that with God nothing shall be impossible for us to face! The secondary romance story is so beautiful (with only minor things I disagreed with) full of the picture of Christ's love for us and the healing of ...more

Kingdom's Quest was one of my favorite books in the Kingdom Series and is for sure my favorite front cover. I loved how the cover was a very important scene in the story, and is so pretty! This was alos the longest book in the series, but still short considering the books I normally read having around 300 pages. This book is very interesting since you get to see the whole new side of Gavin, who's name was changed by the Prince to Gavinaugh at the end of the previous book, representing the allego ...more

I think this book is my favorite in the series now! There's so much awesome about it, and it's a tad longer than the other books. The romance between Gavinaugh and Keena was a complete surprise as Paul in the Bible never married, but it worked in this story, worked really well actually. Gavinaugh and Keena's relationship played a large role in the plot, and I loved how the Prince was centered around them. I don't know if Keena is suppose to represent anything or anyone from the Bible, but her ad ...more

I really enjoyed this book as well. The second book about Gavinaugh, it recounts some more of his adventures, inspired by the Apostle Paul's journeys. This and book #4 were my favorite in the series, and I really recommend them if you enjoy Biblical allegories.

Recommends it for: People who are learning about the Bible and its characters
This is the fifth book in a six book series.

The author continues his story about Gavinaugh, meant to represent the apostle Paul after his believing that Jesus is the promised Savior. The story follows Gavinaugh's mission and the different cities/events that he goes to or that happen are meant to represent the cities visited by Paul and the events that happen in the Book of Acts.

There is a bit of romance in here as the author has it symbolizing something explained more in the discussion questio

I read this in a disorderly fashion: First I read the first book in this series. Afterwards I skipped to book 6. Then I went back and read books 2-5, so this was the final book in the Kingdom series which I read.

Overall, this series is very enjoyable. I love how Christian this story was and how everything the characters did or any events which occurred to them was related to the Bible. I also love how the author transforms it into medieval times. It makes the series a lot more enjoyable. I look

I find it very ironic that the MC Gavin is both Paul and Peter.
Aug 20, 2013 Belinda rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
While trying to find good books to add to my son's homeschool reading list I came across this series of books by Chuck Black. I began reading this series along with my son and became enthralled with the storylines and the characters. There is adventure, suspense, there are battles and very descriptive sword play. I especially like the audio versions for travel and it helps us finish a bit faster. We've just finished book 5 and I'm reading to begin book 6.

This story is of Sir Gavin, whose named has been changed to Sir Gavinaugh signifying his new allegiance to the Prince. He is called to share the message of the Prince to all the people of Arrethrae and also the Outdwellers

Like the others, Kingdom's Quest, is filled with adventure, excitement, clashing swords and thrilling battles between the Prince and his followers and the Dark Knight and his evil Shadow Warriors.

Really good book... at first I was a little puzzled with the character of Keanna, but as I read the book it all made sense :D. This is the second book in this series dealing with "Sir Gavanaugh"... really exciting and interesting perspective-wise.

This is probably my favorite of the entire Kingdom series, and probably because of two certain characters--Keanna and Gavin(augh). I just LOVE their story in this book! So beautiful! Now on to the final book...!
May 25, 2010 Andrew rated it it was amazing
The Prince in this story acts like Jesus who came back from the dead and changed the bad to good and forgave the unforgivable .This book along with all the other Kingdom Series are the best on my bookshelves .

When Sir Galvinaugh finds himself running from the ones he once loved. He finds life following the Prince harder and more dificult then he thought.

This book is a great fantasy book, but without magic.
