More on The Warrior Chronicles from
“What if it is not just a theory?”
I heard these words from a seventh grade student my second
year in teaching. She came to me in tears because her science teacher, a good
friend of mine, had dismissed her religious belief in Creation, and had informed
her that Darwin’s theory of evolution not only created her, but proved that God
was non-existent. From those words, The Warrior Chronicles: Evolution
Based on the real lives of students, and characters taken
from my classes, the Warrior Chronicles tells the story of normal Christian
teens bonded together through their youth group battling the 21st
century issues that they encounter in and out of their public junior high
This first book in the series follows best friends Carly
and Jon as they battle the opinions expressed (and enforced) in their science
class about Darwin’s theory of evolution. These theories are the same that
today’s teens will find in their junior and high school text books, but instead
of following the tide of education, Carly and Jon decide to battle evolution
with Christian truths and evidence that Creation scientists have discovered.
Through this process they begin to understand that secular
society, particularly the public school society, is battling for their souls,
and only through truth, perseverance and prayer will they win the war. They
begin to understand the myth that is evolution science, and the beauty in
creation. They are comforted by new friends and teachers who are entrenched in
our public schools and find strength in each other and in God.
This book is not meant to be a study of the differences
between creationism and evolution, however it does openly confront the
controversy that is present in our public schools and is unapologetic about the
blatant bias of textbooks, curriculum, and teachers.
It was designed to empower students with the knowledge that
evolution has many holes, and cannot be proven. At the same time, it examines
the rights that students of faith have, but often do not exercise, in today’s
classrooms: their freedom of speech and their ability to challenge current
educational practices without fear of reprisal.
In addition, it explores the issue of religious harassment
and bullying as well as more endearing teen matters such as dating and
boundaries in friendships.
This book is a deliberate challenge to our educational
system. It exposes situations and teachers that work consciously, and sometimes
unconsciously, to destroy the faith of Christian youth. Although it is a work of
fiction, the events chronicled are based on situations I witnessed as a teacher
and university supervisor in the public schools of Washington State. It is my
hope that Christian teens will be challenged to stand up with integrity and
strength, honesty and a reliance on God, to become a force within the classrooms
Along with the novel are chapter study questions applicable
to youth groups and Sunday school classes.
