Thirteen-year-old Amon, the son of Jotham and Tabitha, enjoys playing with his friends but is also ready to join his father in the temple court where only men are allowed. Eager to be considered a man, Amon struggles to divide his time betweenhis friends and his duties to family and faith. But when Jotham is falsely accused of a terrible crime, Amon willingly sacrifices his childhood ways in order to save his father's life. Along the way, he sees the jubilant crowds that gathered on Palm Sunday, outwits the Roman soldiers that planned to kill both his father and Jesus, hears the Messiah address the angry crowds, is present during the daring betrayal of Judas Iscariot, and witnesses the ultimate sacrifice made on Good Friday.
With short, exciting chapters, reflections for family devotions, and advice for making Lent a meaningful experience, "Amon's Adventure" will help families discover anew the spiritual power of the resurrection story.

We have all 4 of his books now and they are favorites, getting read over again year after year -- even by my now teens! (We started them as read alouds when they were small.) I can't recommend them highly enough. You won't regret this purchase.

Homeschool MomKodak, TNAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent devotional--my family loved it!April 2, 2012Homeschool MomKodak, TNAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Mr. Arnold Ytreeide has given us another excellent book to help focus our attention on what is truly important about the holidays. We started out with Jotham's Journey and Bartholomew's Passage, both advent devotionals, which as a mom, I loved the way the children could relate to the Bible through a story format. I was very excited to find that Mr. Ytreeide had written Amon's Adventure focusing on lent/Easter, and was not a bit disappointed in the quality of this devotion as well. I would highly recommend these devotions to anyone wanting to draw their children and families close to Jesus during these two important holidays.

It takes a true Master Storyteller to intertwine the lives & characters in these books the way that the author does. Each year we wait with great anticipation to read one of these wonderful stories during our Christian holiday times.
