Peleg Chronicles


This fictional account in the Peleg Chronicles describes the history of mankind in the days of Peleg, after the dispersion but before Abraham and the Sumerian Civilization. This story works great as a read-aloud to children five and over; as well as a literature book to read alone from age eleven to adult.

Who Will Like This Trilogy?


These books are for those who like:
  • Adventure and suspense
  • Dragons and danger
  • Good vs evil
Written by Matthew Christian Harding, this is a daring series which contrasts the worshippers of the God of Noah and the followers of witchcraft. A high-adventure story that keeps kids and adults alike demanding "just one more chapter."


The Foundlings

Book One of the Peleg Chronicles



The Foundling sets the stage for the rest of the triology.

Meet Lord McDougal, a brave and kind lord whose doom has been prophesied by the witch Elsa. He takes into his care orphan foundlings who are hunted by the dragon priests for some mysterious reason.

The book ends with a cliff-hanger with Lord McDougal and his company locked outside the walled city as the death hunt begins.

It is impossible not to continue the exciting story.




Paladins

Book Two of the Peleg Chronicles





Once again we join the trail of the Paladins, the courageous defenders of the weak.

As enemies close around them, the outcome is not what anyone expected.

Surrounded by foes, McDougal is left for dead and his band separated as evil threatens to overtake them all.






Loresman

Book Three of the Peleg Chronicles





Through dark underground passages and across the rooftop sky-road, the adventure and drama continues. The Loresmen stand for truth and trust in God, not their weapons that they must frequently use.

With danger on every side, can Lord McDougal gather the separated members of his party and lead them to safety?

The author had to conjecture which type of political systems were in effect at that time. Which systems do you see in this book? How would the story be different if different political systems were included?

Theology
Some of the characters read or quote Bible passages; but these events are before the time of Abraham. Why would the author include these passages? How would individuals living at this time know anything about theology?
