What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

 "Sir Wyvern Pugilist is a masterful storyteller...and this is the greatest story ever told. It will inspire you to be a great dragon slayer." —Dr. John R. Wood, author of Ordinary Lives Extraordinary Mission

Never have I been so impressed by a book that is steeped in religion and intended for young readers.  Secrets of the Ancient Manual Revealed is a masterpiece written by a gifted author who clearly knows the secret of how to make the sacred teachings of the Bible come alive in a most meaningful and captivating manner. Highly recommended for Dragon Slayers of all ages! —William C. Hammond, author of The Cutler Family Chronicles

This book is fun but serious, like G. K. Chesterton. Kids will learn a lot about the Bible and its message. I also expect it will be read-aloud by many families. —Tim Stafford, senior writer for Christianity Today and author of The Adam Quest

Drawing from a rich and fabulous literary tradition, Joyce Denham's Secrets of the Ancient Manuscript Revealed employs dragons to engage readers with the story of the Bible. In this imaginatively compelling work, Denham's Sir Wyvern Pugilist, dragon slayer extraordinaire, invites young and old alike to unlock the secrets of the Ancient Manuscript—and in so doing, to become more deeply familiar with the Christian story of creation, fall, and redemption. I encourage parents to introduce their children to Sir Wyvern. In his capable hands, dealing with dragons adds up to a winsome course in spiritual formation and biblical literacy. —Lori Goetz, Coordinator for Children's Ministry, Messiah Episcopal Church.  

Hurray, Sir Wyvern Pugilist is back!  The sequel to Dragon Slayers has arrived in Secrets of the Ancient Manual: Revealed!     A much anticipated sequel to Dragon Slayers!  You will not want to put this manual down once you pick it up!  But, be warned some of the Dragons that were  introduced to you  in Dragon Slayers, will try to invade your mind and warn you to not read it…But, read you MUST! —On This Rock Christian Books & Gifts, Oshkosh, Wisconsin
