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 take care of evil behaviors that may be acceptable for mature kids and above. The violence within the Chronicles is just like the ebook of Judges. The sexuality is like music 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.
