About Kingdom’s Edge
This is the third book in Chuck Black’s Kingdom Series, which again, in allegorical form, tells the story of the period from our Lord Jesus to just prior to His return. Cedric of Chessington tells us the tale, as he learns the power of compassion, faith and hope – greater than any sword – is he finds himself in a desperate stand for righteousness against evil.
This 3rd volume was written to re-kindle your joy in the most wonderful story ever told: that of the Prince Who left His Father’s kingdom to save His people.
He was doomed to a life of hopelessness and despair.
Then the stranger arrived…
For Cedric of Chessington, every day is the same: full of poverty and despair. And he knows that will never change.
Or so he thinks.
Then a stranger comes to the city. Drawn to the man’s mysterious ways, Cedric discovers the stranger’s humility belies great strength and wisdom. That’s when an astounding truth becomes clear—the stranger is a Master of the Sword, and He is there to train Cedric.
Suddenly propelled into a desperate battle against evil, Cedric must rely on the Master’s training if he is going to survive. But the ultimate battle is yet to come, for the Dark Knight is at work, implementing his plan to take over the kingdom. Will Cedric be ready to stand in the face of pure evil?
Journey to Arrethtrae, where the King and His Son implement a bold plan to save their kingdom; where courage, faith, and loyalty stand tall in the face of opposition; where good will not bow to evil; and where hope and compassion are as powerful weapons as the sword.

Story Behind the Book
“When my six kids’ eyes glossed over during a reading from the Bible, I paused to explain the significance of redemption to a sin-sick soul. I was rewarded with patronizing elephant nods and more blank stares. Shortly thereafter, I awoke in the middle of the night with a medieval story enveloping my mind. I wrote it down and later read it to my children. Their waning attention transformed into complete anticipation. I was amazed and disappointed. Why did it take a fictional story, not a Bible passage, to get that response? Then I realized—that is how Jesus taught! Parables are powerful! I penned the Kingdom series to help young people get excited about the supremely significant story of Jesus Christ and His mission to save mankind.” — Chuck Black
