Publisher's Summary

This novel of page-turning action and adventure poses the question, "If a society had no knowledge of Christianity, and then a Bible were discovered, what would happen?" Four hundred years after a deadly virus and nuclear war destroyed the modern world, a new and noble civilization emerges. In this kingdom, called Chiveis, snow-capped mountains provide protection, and fields and livestock provide food. The people live medieval-style lives, with almost no knowledge of the "ancient" world. Safe in their natural stronghold, the Chiveisi have everything they need, even their own religion. Christianity has been forgotten--until a young army scout comes across a strange book. With that discovery, this work of speculative fiction takes readers on a journey that encompasses adventure, romance, and the revelation of the one true God.
Through compelling narrative and powerful character development, The Sword speaks to God's goodness, his refusal to tolerate sin, man's need to bow before him, and the eternality and power of his Word. Fantasy and adventure readers will be hooked by this first book in a forthcoming trilogy.

What a Find. I Loved It!

Litfin writes with great imagery, bringing the town and the characters to life. Never having heard of this author, this novel was a refreshing find! Loved it!

Love it - so engaging

This is such an engaging and well-written fiction book. The author really gave thought to creating this future world and spent time developing the characters so you can connect with them.

I LOVE the narrator. As an actor, I'm the worst critic of these poor people. This is the first narrator that I've actually loved. He does an amazing job subtly introducing new voices for each character and does it convincingly - I could listen to him read anything and I'd enjoy it.

Great book - fun to listen to and a creative way at presenting timeless Truths that make you think. I recommend it!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A well constructed plot. This sounded like a Disney adventure.

Would you ever listen to anything by Bryan M. Litfin again?


Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Ray Porter?

I wouldn't want anyone to waste their time on this poor quality material

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Sword?

all of it
