5.0 out of 5 stars An Exciting ReadSeptember 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Lorilyn Roberts second novel, The King, in the series of Seventh Dimension is an outstanding presentation of both fantasy and real life concerns of today's young adult reader. The creative traverse from the real world to fantasy is filled with a mix of modern day elements, like delving from the computer media world through Chariot racing in the historical era of Rome. The unusual aspect of this book is how the author has brought the Biblical story of Jesus, as King into the story without being confrontational.This a an exciting read. I found myself as an older adult, entering into the excitement of the story as I completed the read by using my Kindle edition. I'm highly anticipating the release of the next book.

"Seventh Dimension - The King - Book 2, A Young Adult Fantasy" RECEIVES LITERARY CLASSICS SEAL OF APPROVAL


Seventh Dimension - The King, Book 2 
A Young Adult Fantasy 

Now available at, Amazon, and Smashwords in ebook format and print!

Literary Classics is pleased to announce that the book,  The Kinghas been selected to receive the Literary Classics Seal of Approval. The CLC Seal of Approval is a designation reserved for those books which uphold the rigorous criteria set forth by the Literary Classics review committee, a team comprised of individuals with backgrounds in publishing, editing, writing, illustration and graphic design.

The King, by Lorilyn Roberts, is the highly engaging story of Daniel, a young boy who aspires to become a doctor. His family is Jewish, but they do not practice their faith. In fact, Daniel is not sure if he even believes in God. When he unexpectedly finds himself transported in time to the days of Jesus, he is granted a front row seat to events that actually took place in the Bible. He meets John the Baptist, Pontius Pilate, and is witness to the spectacle of a mute whose speech is miraculously restored.

As a result of his wildly adventurous experiences, Daniel seeks discernment to unravel the mysteries of Jesus and his relevance to the Jewish faith as it applies to himself and others.

Author Lorilyn Roberts has skillfully incorporated fantasy, time travel, history and religion into a book that is entertaining, educational and inspirational.  

The King is the second book in a series, but reads well as a stand-alone. The religious components are such that they are not likely to be off-putting to those who might not otherwise appreciate that element. But history and religion buffs are sure to appreciate the depth provided in this book which makes it all the more engaging to read.

John 3:16 Authors and Child Hope International team up in Nepal
Your prayers appreciated!

I'm currently in the planning stages of going to Nepal with Child Hope International in October. I will be taking around 200 books to be shared among the 21 homes sponsored by Child Hope International. Child Hope has saved over 200 orphans by helping them to be adopted into Christian homes by Nepalese families. This trip is a collaborative effort with John 3:16 authors who are donating many of the books. We hope to make this an ongoing project and eventually build a Christian library on the church's property in Kathmandu. 

To learn how this opportunity came about, please visit the John 3:16 blog here. To read about Child Hope International or to become a child sponsor, please visit my website here

I would appreciate your prayers as I prepare for the trip. If you would like to make a financial contribution of $34.99 or more, I will mail you a special edition, signed copy of my Amazon best-selling memoir Children of Dreams. All proceeds from the book will go toward the Christian library project. My hope is to give away 40 signed copies of my book to help the children. 

To make a personal donation, please send a check to: Lorilyn Roberts, 4715 NW 33rd Place, Gainesville, FL  32606

I'm also excited that a member of the John 3:16 Marketing Network has donated two Kindles for me to take to Nepal. This will be a unique opportunity to continue to provide books to Child Hope International homes for years to come. I will be able to purchase the books here in America and download them on the Kindles in Nepal!

Please share with your church as God leads. Child Hope International is a non-profit organization doing great things in Nepal for orphans and abandoned children. Silas Khadka, who is the executive director, is the pastor who found Manisha 20 years ago when I adopted her. How time flies. She is now 23! 

Please pray for all the preparations for the trip. Joy, my 16-year-old daughter, will be traveling with me and ministering alongside me to the children. We will spend some time helping the kids with reading and writing as we share the books and encourage them in their educational pursuits, all provided for by Child Hope International donations. Please take a moment to be inspired by watching this video.

Connecting With My Jewish Roots

I took the photographs in this video when I was in Israel at the beginning of the Gulf War in 1991. With my new book Seventh Dimension - The King - Book 2 published, which has a strong Israeli influence, I'm enjoying a resurgence of my "Jewishness." 

I recently discovered through DNA testing at 23 and Me that I have Jewish DNA in me. Before you click on the link, please enjoy this Israeli video and be blessed. And if you haven't picked up my book, please do. Seventh Dimension -The King - Book 2 recently won a major award which I will share later this week.
