As a writer, it distresses me to know so many people who never read. Oh, they’ll read a technical article or a manual, whatever, if it’s absolutely required of them for work–but a novel? 251 more wordsRead! Read More! — Lee Duigon

My favorite series to read is the Bell Mountain Series by Lee Duigon. I first found out about the Bell Mountain series when I got it as a gift from my grandma.
There are currently 12 books in the series, with 2 more coming soon!! Here I will introduce you all to the fun and exciting Christian fantasy series: The Bell Mountain Series!!
In the Bell Mountain Series, you will meet two adventurous kids, Jack and Ellayne, living in a village called Ninneburky, who go on a mission given to them by God to ring a mysterious bell which, according to the “Scriptures,” is said to be on top of a high mountain called Bell Mountain. Other fantastic characters include the wise hermit, Obst, who loves God, the powerful man of the woods, Helki the Rod, the brave and fearless hairy little man-like creature named Wytt, the evil First Prester (High Priest) of the Temple, Lord Reesh and his professional assassin, Martis, sly and crafty Ysbott the Snake, greedy and covetous Lord Chutt, the ruthless warlord and supreme leader of the Heathen army called the Thunder King… and much much more!!
This series is a great way to learn about God and to learn wonderful insights!
The first book of the series is called Bell Mountain…
Finally… Faithful Fiction that Reveals the Kingdom of God!
Introducing Bell Mountain, by Lee Duigon, the first novel from Chalcedon’s new label, Storehouse Press!
The world is going to end… as soon as Jack and Ellayne ring the bell on top of Bell Mountain. No one has ever climbed the mountain, and no one has ever seen the bell. But the children have a divine calling to carry out the mission, and it sweeps them into high adventure.
For the world is already changing, and fast: legends come to life, strange beasts emerge from the forest, bandits and slave traders hunt the helpless, and war rumbles on the borderlands. The children must make their way through all these perils — not knowing that a professional killer has been sent to stop them.
For there are others who know the secret of the bell… a terrible secret, only hinted at in the sacred writings. But do they understand God’s plan any better than the children?
The world has been shaken to its foundations before. Will this be the final shaking?
Great for young adults.

Lesson 10: More about Rooks
There are two important things to remember about Rooks. 1) They work best when they work together. Unlike Bishops, they can defend each other. Unlike Knights, they can do it at long range. Rooks at a1 and a8, for instance, provided there is nothing in the way, defend each other the length of the board. 2) The principal of “sliding Rooks”: although the Rook is a high value piece, it can often be sacrificed–for instance, by taking a Pawn that is protecting the opposing King, blowing a hole in the defense–when the other Rook is able to “slide in” to replace it on your next turn. Example: Rooks on h1 and g1. The g1 Rook sweeps down to g7 to capture a defending enemy Pawn and threaten (“check”) the opposing King. The King, due to circumstances we won’t go into here, has no alternative but to capture your Rook on g7. When it’s your turn to move again, your h1 Rook “slides” to g1 and again attacks the enemy King–who no longer has a Pawn in front of him to defend him.
There is a saying in chess, “When you can move either of your two Rooks, you almost always end up moving the wrong one!” So take the time to carefully consider your moves.
