Day 3: Favorite Book

My favorite book is Kingdom's Call by Chuck Black. I like this book because it gives an account of  Jesus' life through the eyes of the Pharisees. Before I read this book, I thought they were absolute monsters like the antichrist or something. Now I know that they were human beings who sinned just like us. They most likely thought that they were doing the right thing even though they weren't. As it say in Proverbs 14:12, "There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death." Below is a summary of the book.

A sworn enemy of the Prince vows to eliminate his Followers.
Until the Prince saves his life…

For generations the Noble Knights have been in service to the King. Following a strict code of conduct, they preserve the peace in Chessington, the King’s chosen city, and rule its citizenry. Sir Gavin is a young and promising Noble Knight, devoted to King and Code.

Then a peasant disrupts the tranquility of Chessington, brazenly challenging the Code while claiming to be the son of the King–a Prince. When it is learned that he is actively training a force of men in defiance of the law, the stranger is arrested and executed.

But his Followers continue to defy the Code, and Sir Gavin swears to destroy this threat to Chessington–until he himself is grievously wounded in battle. As he faces his own death, Gavin is saved by someone who will transform his heart and change his life…
