Discover the Greatest Adventure with the Adventures in Odyssey Bible!

By | August 16, 2017

That’s right! We previously announced that the Odyssey team would be releasing a brand new Adventures in Odyssey Bible, and that time is now! It has been 17 years since Focus on the Family released an AIO Bible, and the team has done a fantastic job putting this one together. Fans, you can now order the NIrV Adventures in Odyssey Bible, exclusively available through Focus on the Family.

The Bible is available in three options: hardcover or your choice of brown or purple Italian leatherette.

Summary:

This full color Bible combines the bestselling, kid-friendly New International Reader’s Version text of both the Old and New Testaments with more than a thousand features meant to excite and encourage you to read and apply the Scriptures.

Recurring features like Whit’s Wisdom, Candid Conversations, Wooton’s Fun Facts, Jason’s Jargon, and “What’s It Mean, Eugene?” will keep you turning the pages, reading the biblical text, and growing in your understanding of God’s Word.

In addition, this Bible includes color maps highlighting the key events from both the Old and New Testament and eight illustrated scriptural stories presented in full color, with Adventures in Odyssey characters “joining in” by means of Whit’s invention The Imagination Station.

By | July 3, 2017

Prepare yourself for a battle between good and evil in a brand-new book series from Adventures in Odyssey. Meet The Blackgaard Chronicles, a series that long-time fans, as well as newcomers, will enjoy.

Adventures in Odyssey radio dramas are fast-moving and exciting. But there’s only so much story that can be told in a half-hour episode! In these easy-to-read novels, kids ages 8 to 12 will learn more of the back story on their favorite characters and events, as well as find themselves in the middle of more adventure and suspense!

In these first two books of The Blackgaard Chronicles, the evil Dr. Blackgaard starts his attack on the town and people of Odyssey. How long will it take for wise Mr. Whittaker to realize what’s happening, and can he respond in time to stop Blackgaard’s nefarious schemes?

The story opens up with the first book in the series: Opening Moves:

A conniving city councilman is secretly carrying out plans against John Avery Whittaker and Whit’s End. Yet Philip Glossman is only a pawn in a dark game played by the mysterious Dr. Regis Blackgaard.

Meanwhile, against Whit’s express orders, Eugene and Connie tamper with a top-secret computer room—and the destructive Applesauce program is unleashed.

Can Whit counter the forces opposing him? What does Dr. Blackgaard really want?

Discover The Blackgaard Chronicles, a new book series that explores more of the story beyond the Adventures in Odyssey audio drama series!
