Kingdom Tales From Terrestria


Like the Terrestria Chronicles, each Kingdom Tales from Terrestria book was written to honor and glorify the Lord Jesus Christ as King and challenge the reader to love and serve Him. The stories are fast-paced and captivating, but each was written to deliver a powerful message and draw your heart to the King.

Unlike the Chronicles, which are sequential and should be read chronologically, the Tales are stand-alone books and can be read in almost any order. Books 2 and 3 belong together, and Books 4 and 5 should be read together.

It is our prayer that the Kingdom Tales from Terrestria will challenge your entire family to serve the King of kings.​

Great Christian Family Reading!


"This set of books is definitely on the top of our list of favorites! We have seven children and read these aloud to ages 5 and over, and the children have read them on their own. The messages in each book are wonderful, the writing is dynamic and the discussions that they generate are priceless. We highly suggest these books to friends that are searching for GREAT family reading. These are NOT just for boys - your girls will love these books as well. We have donated them to our church as well. We find them to be biblically solid and there is no worry about romance or inappropriate themes. Pastor Dunlop's writing style is awesome - full of adventure, suspense, and action. He has a great way of making you think about scripture truths. You won't be disappointed!"

An encouraging allegory


"The biblical parallels are easily seen. It's an enjoyable story that highlights the love and grace of God that is ours through Jesus."

The Terrestria Chronicles


Travel back to the days of noble knights and powerful warlords… daring quests and deadly dragons… the days of honor and valor and chivalry. Take your family on a medieval adventure that will stay with them for a lifetime! Grab your sword and take a life-changing journey to the land of Terrestria, the realm of the wise and powerful King Emmanuel.

The Terrestria Chronicles allegory series was written with a three-fold purpose: to honor Jesus Christ as King, to challenge young readers to love and serve Him, and to teach them to guard their hearts for Him. The focus of the series is always on the King.

Fast-paced action… powerful imagery… heart-pounding adventure… These life-changing books are captivating and once you start reading, you’ll find them hard to put down.


This adventure series has a particularly strong appeal to today’s young people: it’s a series with knights and castles, dragons and princesses… but these are books in which every page points to truths of the Christian walk. Biblical doctrines and character principles are taught in such a compelling, fascinating way that they will stay with the reader for a lifetime. Each book concludes with a glossary of medieval terms and a page of little-known details of castle life.

Written for ages ten and up, the Terrestria series is ideal for family devotions, classroom use, or individual enjoyment. So grab your sword and take your family on a quest to Terrestria! Your heart will be challenged to serve the King of kings.

What others are saying about the series


This series is a well crafted tale with substance and spiritual truth. This is not comic book fluff, but life changing reading. My family has been reading the series together, and they love it! This will be remembered in our generation the way Pilgrim's Progress was for previous generations.

WOW - What a read!


My 10 year old son absolutely LOVED this book! He could not put it down and finished it in just days. He is begging for the entire series! I am reading it to see what makes this so much better than the other books he has read and so far (I am on chapter 5) I am thrilled with the quality of this book. Ed Dunlop uses scripture in a fresh and fascinating way. Without quoting Bible verses he has taken them and woven them into the fabric of his book. He has taken the Biblical truths of God's message of Salvation and applied it to the life of his main character Josiah in an EXCITING, GRIPPING, CAN'T PUT THE BOOK DOWN way. I highly recommend this book to everyone regardless of age/gender!

Eleven-year-old Sherlock Jones is a skinny, ordinary kid with thick glasses. But Sherlock is a genius, and he uses his incredible powers of observation and reasoning to solve mysteries. On more than one occasion, the police of the little town of Willoughby have come to Sherlock for help with their more difficult cases!

Written for middle readers, with four titles in the series, two more pending. Published by Bob Jones press.

Great Mysteries!

"These books are just so fun! I learned so much about sleuthing, and years after first reading them, occasionally find myself still referring back to little tips and tricks I learned in them. The best part, is that the books are clean, without losing any sense of excitement or adventure. They hold to a Biblical worldview, and answer challenges that kids face today about honesty, character, and morality. 10 thumbs up!"

Sherlock Jones: The Willoughby Bank Robbery

"I wish there were 300 of these books so I could keep reading these for a very long time. I absolutely love these books Mr Dunlop and am becoming a better Christian the more I read this treasured series.
When you came to Lewisburg Baptist Church for Vacation Bible School I had so much fun playing the games that you made and was really touched by the services you preached. Please come again soon so I can hear you preach again and tell you personally how much these books mean to me."

Sherlock Jones

"This series is one of our family's most favorite adventure series...actually, all the books by Ed Dunlop have been the favorites of our family! Perfect for children of all ages (and adults, too), these books keep you in suspense as you follow the struggles, trials, heartaches, adventures, and joys of Jed Cartwright. Set in the middle years of our country, just as the west was being settled, these books are filled with information and episodes that keep you coming back for more. They had our entire family alternately laughing and crying! Best of all is the Biblical emphasis. The unbelief, the struggles with faith, and the eventual salvation of many characters in the book are encouraging. It is so refreshing to find books that you can allow your child to read without concern that there might be something questionable! I couldn't recommend these books enough."
