A Great Trilogy

A Great Trilogy

Imagine there was a fatal virus that killed quickly and in mass numbers and spread like wildfire around the world. As hundreds of millions die from the virus, resources grow very scarce, and nations go to war over food and basic supplies. The virus continues its deadly spread, and the wars become more brutal. Eventually, those with nuclear weapons utilize them and destroy the modern world as we know it. Only small pockets of humans survive both the disease and the war. Hundreds of years later, all knowledge of modern technology and civilization (now considered “the ancients”) has been lost. The world has returned to a medieval-like age of swords, horses, and feudal kingdoms. And then, in the mountains of Europe, someone finds a Bible.

This is the setting of Bryan Litfin’s Chiveis Trilogy. Litfin is a historian with a master’s degree in historical theology from Dallas Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. in ancient church history from the University of Virginia.

The Chiveis Trilogy traces the discovery of the Bible and its impact on a world that has forgotten the ancient religion of Christianity. The books have something for everyone. There are action-packed battles, one-on-one duels, wilderness adventures, romance, suspense, intrigue, betrayal, politics, spiritual warfare, and theology. The characters are dynamic, the storyline moves at a good pace and has plenty of unexpected twists, the antagonists are intense, and the redemption stories are emotional.

This trilogy is a fantastic read for adults and teens and is one of my favorites.
