In this second book of The Newton Chronicles, Luke Alexander and his friends Nathan and Lydia are still on the hunt for Luke’s father, who has been noted as “missing, presumed dead.” But Luke and his friends aren’t so sure. After finding a watch in Luke’s father’s office that helps them jump through time, the three friends are on a quest to find Luke’s dad.

Searching for the time of Solomon’s Temple may be easier said than done, though, as they realize they could be searching over a period of several hundreds of years. From Moses destroying the Ten Commandments to David slaying Goliath, the quest seems daunting. But as he finds more clues along the way, Luke is becoming more and more convinced that not only is his father still alive, but he also needs Luke’s help.

Journey through the Bible with Luke and his friends as they see firsthand the Bible stories of old and find out more than they ever knew.
