So a couple weeks ago I got an email from an author (William M. Beck, Jr.) who was interested in my creative arts ministry. As it turns out, he is not too far from me and so we may actually get to meet soon. He is pastoring a local church. We ended up hatting on the phone and that is when he told me about his book A Light in the Dark. It seemed like it might be something I would enjoy so I picked it up. I was not disappointed.

This is a fantasy novel in the tradition of C.S. Lewis’ Narnia series. It’s also a real page turner. Anthropomorphic animal characters need to learn to work together to fend off a huge threat and in the process learn the values of friends, family and community. This book is well written and thoroughly enjoyable with plenty of action. A nice added feature is found in the last few pages of the book where Beck plus back the curtain and tells the reader some of the stories and motivations behind the story.

I highly recommend checking this one out. You can get to the page by clicking the image of the book cover above.
