In books 1 and 2 of the Chiveis Trilogy, The Sword and The Gift, Teo and Ana find the Old and New Testaments, which had been lost for centuries. Their discoveries lead to new friendships and renewed faith within a small band of men and women working to spread the knowledge of the one true God. But now an ancient pact has united enemies of the Christian faith. Through the discovery of a powerful military technology, this dark alliance now threatens to consume the known world. Teo and Ana learn of the nefarious plot, and against overwhelming odds race to stay one step ahead of their enemies, traversing stormy seas, dangerous cities, and smoldering volcanoes. As armies begin to mass for a final battle, the odds seem to favor the forces of evil, and Teo and Ana will have to fight for faith when all hope has been lost. In the final book of the Chiveis Trilogy, Litfin takes readers on a journey filled with peril, faraway lands, and adventure. Men and women alike will enjoy the fast-paced narrative, imaginative plot, and vivid descriptions of this master storyteller.

About the Author:

Review:

''Bryan Litfin combines his vivid imagination with his knowledge of theology, history, literature, geography, ancient languages, and even apothecary (!) to give us a marvelous book about 'a mysterious book.' The Kingdom is more than a fascinating, enjoyable, quick read; it is also a great story about The Great Story - 'Iesus, the Pierced One'and his past, present, and future church. Three cheers for this final volume in the trilogy!''
- Douglas Sean O'Donnell, Senior Pastor, New Covenant Church, Naperville, Illinois; author, God's Lyrics and The Beginning and End of Wisdom

''In the darkness of Chiveis, where hope is a rare commodity, some dare to believe the promises of the sacred text. The adventure that follows not only grips your imagination, it also enriches your faith.''
- Chris Castaldo, Director, Ministry of Gospel Renewal, Billy Graham Center

''The Chiveis Trilogy concludes with yet another page-turner, full of action, adventure, suspense, intrigue, and inspiration. Litfin's deep love for Scripture, reflected in his characters' passionate pursuit of the Sacred Writings, can't help but challenge and inspire readers to treasure their own Bibles and read them more often!''
- Christin Ditchfield conference speaker; syndicated radio host, Take It To Heart, author, A Family Guide to Narnia

''Bryan Litfin's writing is colorful, witty, and engaging. The story of Chiveis is compelling and rich. The beautiful gospel themes constantly remind me of the wonder of the True God and the power of his Word. This last installment of the Chiveis Trilogy concludes the adventures of Teo and Ana with heart racing and mind stirring pace and resolution. This is indeed the work of an artist and theologian.''
- Jay Thomas, Senior Pastor, Chapel Hill Bible Church, Chapel Hill, NC

''The climatic conclusion of Bryan Litfin's Chiveis Trilogy does not disappoint. With his mastery of language, Litfin brings to life the struggles of Teo and Ana as they reintroduce God to a post-apocalyptic world that has forgotten Him. The cunning and captivating plot is layered with deep currents of real everyday Christian struggles. It is a thrilling novel that captured my imagination and challenged my soul.''
- Jason Hubbard MD, FAANS, FACS, Neurosurgeon --Review
