A second review reads ... "The Chest of Visions" is crafted as a totally new concept for involving today's youth in Bible study. Borrowing from the contemporary popularity of Science Fiction and Fantasy fiction novels, comics and movies, the author has devised a correspondence across parallel universes between several teen-aged individuals on two different planets in two different universes.

If read in its entirety, and considered prayerfully, "Chest of Visions" should be acknowledged as a significant step forward in Youth Group Study Guides. Don't miss out on this special engaging story that teaches the gospel! ... Read More

click ... Basketball star shoots 96% to lead team to victory


Just about one year ago the first letters were received from young people in the land of Caperston. Initially they were from a young man named Mattpaul and now his best friend, Huchfee, has been writing... now it is November and Huchfee tells us Herbert is eight foot four inches tall with a nice shooting touch. Still later we read ... "Marcus is sharing with the Mountain youth the story of their jailed leaders and how they remained in jail after the earthquake. The mountain youth are very remorseful over what happened to Dustin and they are now calling him a hero for standing up for his beliefs."


Hugapod leader's vision of Christ brings peace and faith!

Erbert "is eight feet four inches tall and a good jumper. In the game Erbert made 22 out of 23 drop shot attempts and led his team to victory 59 to 54. It was a close competition and, when his team got behind 52 to 51, Erbert made a long shot and a drop shot to go ahead...

After the game "Marcus asked Erbert, 'How do you know about God?' and Erbert told their story. His father was the ruler of the Hugapods and many years ago had a dream. It was a very vivid dream of a man, tied to a tree up in the air..."
