Original Novel #3: Point of No Return
Standing up for what you believe in isn't
easy. Just ask Matt Booker and Jack Davis, who sneak into the
Imagination Station and face the consequences in a time of slavery. Or
Jimmy Barclay, who discovers that doing the right thing can cost him
everything he thinks is most precious. Or Whit and the kids at Whit's
End when they meet a stranger in need and have to ask themselves, "What
would Jesus do?"
Point of No
Jimmy Barclay decides to make a major change in his life. But as
soon as he does, everything begins to go wrong. Where is God when
the trouble starts?
When Jack Davis and his best friend, Matt Booker, ignore a "keep
out" sign on the Imagination Station, they end up in pre-Civil War
America, where Matt is captured by slave traders.
After being rescued from slave traders, Matt chooses to return to
the 1800s in order to keep a promise. Jack joins him for a thrilling
Underground Railroad adventure.
A homeless stranger comes to Odyssey and sets into motion a dramatic
challenge for Whit and the kids at Whit's End: "What would Jesus
do?" in our world today? The answer holds surprises for everyone.
