a few Christians have requested what "rating" the novels have when it comes to the portrayal of intercourse and violence. i might say the sequence is rated PG-13. The Chronicles do care for evil behaviors that will be acceptable for mature children and above. The violence within the Chronicles is just like the publication of Judges. The sexuality is like tune of Solomon, alluded to poetically, yet evidently. the outline of sexual evil is like Ezekiel sixteen, occasionally surprising, yet by no means glorified. there's an occasional profane notice or vulgarity like in Ezekiel 23, revealing non secular wickedness.
