“Drawing from a rich and fabulous literary tradition, Joyce Denham’s Secrets of the Ancient Manual 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 Manual — 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.”
