By day they abandoned themselves to the endless rocking of the kibitka as it travelled over the highroad

By day they abandoned themselves to the endless rocking of the kibitka as it travelled over the highroad. For the most part they slept, despite the jolting and the heat, which both shortened the journey and left them fresher for the night. Twilight falling and the scent of wormwood rising from the steppe would reawaken their desires and from then on they lived only for the magic moment that would lift them out of time, to become once again the first man and woman, naked together in the first night of the world.

History and good storytelling combine in Craig and Janet Parshall’s exciting new series: the Thistle and the Cross.

It’s 1546. The great William Wallace—“Braveheart”—is long dead. But not the Scottish people’s desire for freedom. The truths of the Reformation have set Scotland aflame again...

When Ransom Mackenzie witnesses one of the Scottish Reformers being burnt at the stake, he becomes an ardent follower of the great Protestant preacher John Knox.

In hiding, Ransom meets the captivating Margaret, who shares his religious convictions. But when he joins Knox in London, the allure of the court...and a young aristocratic lady...enthrall him. Will he return to the deepest desire of his spirit? What kind of love will he ultimately pursue?

I really enjoy Christian fiction. Craig Parshall is true to his faith and the books are very exciting. Well worth reading anything he writes. This goes for all of his books you have listed. All 5 stars and great reading.

I'm always anxious to see what Craig Parshall sets out to deliver. And when I saw that with "Crown of Fire," he was cooking up some historical fiction, I was really looking forward to the adventure. And in this first offering in this set of books, I wasn't disappointed.

You will meet the person of Ransom MacKenzie, and how his life is changed. He's seen his share of things, not to mention people being burned at the stake. But he's also heard the teachings of his mentor, John Knox, and he knows of the heretics who rule this land. This is a time where speaking the truth can get quite ugly, and where you can face adversity, regardless of how true your words ring.

Parshall usually has the knack for pacing himself rather well. And while he did, this could've taken close to 50 pages off and the story would have still told quite well. But on the other hand, like other authors in the Christian fiction realm, I don't see Parshall trying to turn his stories into Tom Clancy re-writes either. He just takes his story, and he tells it well. I think writing like that is going to put him past Randy Singer and right up there with Robert Whitlow. Parshall has always proved original, and just recently working with Jerry Jenkins has proved that! I can only hope that his work begins spreading like fire. Because once it does, there won't be any quenching it!

It is 1546 in St. Andrews, Scotland, the land is aflame with the bodies of Protestant Reformists, and Ransom Mackenzie finds himself being used of God to help lead the reform sweeping the country. His tutor and mentor is none other than John Knox. The two of them embark on a journey to change the land from one of unyielding and persecuting Catholicism to one devoted to the Evangel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

In "Crown of Fire" Craig and Janet Parshall do a superb job of weaving history with captivating fiction, as they bring to life that forthright and surefire spiritual leader, John Knox. His biography is thoroughly intertwined in this novel so that at the conclusion one feels to have stepped back in time and actually experienced knowing him personally.

The reader of "Crown of Fire" is taken through the short reign of King Edward, the terrifying and bloody reign of Queen Mary, and finally left with Queen Elizabeth allowing light in an otherwise spiritually darkened country. Through all of this, Ransom and his bonnie Highland lass, Margaret, grow closer to the Lord despite persecution in both England and Scotland.

A most fascinating historic novel, "Crown of Fire" is a must-read for today's Christian. The history lesson is complete, the heart has been warmed by the love of a husband and wife, and above all a challenge has been issued to all Christians to stand faithful to their Lord.
