Tennis Shoes Adventure Series, Vol. 5: The Sacred Quest
Through an unusual chain of events, these two opposites become fast friends. It all began when Garth told Jim a simple truth:
“They really existed, you know.”
“Who?” Jim asked.
“Nephites,” Garth replied. “Every character in the Book of Mormon ate, slept, died, was buried . . .”
That statement, taken for granted before, would soon echo deeply in the two boys’ minds — because they were on the trail of a chilling secret. At the root of this secret was a faded Indian legend that old men told children to make their eyes grow big. As Garth and Jim put the pieces of the puzzle together, they accidentally stumble upon a mysterious passageway hurling them into another world — an ancient American world.
Join Jim, Garth, and Jim’s pesky little sister, Jennifer, as they journey in a land where the names Helaman, Teancum, and Captain Moroni are more than just words on a page. A world where danger and suspense are a way of life. . .
(Formerly Tennis Shoes and the Seven Churches)
An undying love inspires an impossible journey into a world on the brink of apostasy. . .
The explosive saga that began with Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites, Gadiantons and the Silver Sword, and The Feathered Serpent Parts One and Two kicks into high gear once again in this fifth volume of the ongoing adventures of the Hawkins family.
Join fifteen-year-old Harry Hawkins as he takes the baton from his father, Jim, and embarks upon a perilous quest to grant what may be his sister’s last wish and reunite her with the love of her life. In the process, he discovers secrets about the mysterious caverns of Frost Cave that his father never dreamed of — secrets that plunge him into a world he never expected. A world in rebellion against the oppressors of Rome and against the pure and undefiled doctrines of Christ and His newborn Church — the dangerous and reeling world of Jerusalem and the New Testament in the first century A.D.
