Product Description

Peter Silas has done something really quite remarkable in The Prophecy of the Sacred Cross. Not only has he created a Christian fantasy in the genre of Lewis' Narnia tales, but he has set it within the context of the Eastern Orthodox Church. This is a first, as far as I know. While the American literary audience has some familiarity with Eastern Orthodoxy in its Greek or Russian expressions, few have much experience with an American Orthodox Christianity - of which Silas declares himself a member.The Prophecy, the first of a trilogy, centers on twelve year old Timothy Petrov, an American Orthodox Christian, at a time in the future when public Christianity is discriminated against and even punished. Timothy, who undergoes the struggles of any good and shy Junior High Schooler, is unexpectedly taken up into the heavenly realm and must accomplish three objectives that will determine the future of the world. The action unfolds alternately on Earth and in the heavenly realms. The work has the excitement of a developing quest in a fight of good against evil, of angels against demons. It accurately incorporates aspects of Eastern Orthodox structure and spirituality.It's a good story and a good read that ends well for further action in parts 2 and 3 of the trilogy. It is recommended to all!
