A modern children's parable, based on the message of the gospel and the hope of Christ's return.
There was no peace in the King’s face. “My son, I have grim news. Your cousin is dead.”
Gideon tried to speak but no words came.
“All he did was to speak the truth. He was killed because he would not stop.”
Slow anger began to burn in Gideon. “Why do your subjects not rebel against this attack?” he demanded.
The face of the King softened. “My son, they no longer want to fight. Some no longer even want a King.”
The thought presented itself as quietly and inevitably as the first gleam of dawn. “Let me go, Sire.”
So begins a journey of adventure, discovery and friendship, in which Gideon soon encounters a dark and formidable foe.
