The Cooper Kid Series by Peretti is essentially a Christian Indiana Jones series for elementary kids. And it's marvelous! A bit dated (they were written in the 80s), but still worth reading. In particular, if you have boys who hate reading, this is a good start. They stories are fast-paced, with lots of action and plot twists and imminent danger and daring deeds of courage! I recommend for anyone, but in particular Christian parents who are looking for good books for their children.… (more)

I was intrigued with the Biblical archeology when I first read this book years ago. Upon rereading it, I didn't find it as fascinating as I did that first time through. I am passing this series on to my nephew and hope he likes the adventure in them.

My recollection of this book (and its entire series) is indistinct, but positive. In my memory the stories they tell are a cheesier version of Indiana Jones which include a large family of varied children.
