|This collection from 1991 features 12 more exciting Adventures for Whit and the gang.|
It opens with "By Dawn's Early Light." My favorite American history Imagination Station adventure finds Curt and Lucy traveling back to the War of 1812 and the writing of "The Star Spangled Banner" to powerfully show why our national symbols mean something.
Odyssey is in for a shock when Curt takes over the town in "Mayor for a Day."
One of Whit's short stories gets made into a movie to the delight and then chagrin of his friends in "A Day in the Life." This is especially interesting listening considering it originally aired about the time the Adventures in Odyssey videos started coming out.
George has been offered a great promotion that could take the Barclays to Washington DC in "Where There's a Will." But does God want them to go?
Whit hires some kids to clean the little theater. Connie is trying to get her uncle Joe to come back to church. What do these two things have to do with a parable of Jesus? Find out in "The Last Shall be First."
The Barclay's learn "The Meaning of Sacrifice" when they agree to give up TV for a month, with hilarious results.
"A Rathbone of Contention" introduces the Electric Palace as Bart tries to cut corners to get his new store opened.
Lucy learns a hard lesson about the power of the written word when she tries to become a "Muckraker."
One of the best stories from the Old Testament comes to life when Bernard tells Robyn and Melanie the story of Esther in the two part "Bernard and Esther."
"Coming of Age" finds Jimmy going through some wired changes he doesn't quite understand. (And features the second appearance of his journal.)
Finally, the album ends on a sad note when we learn about Curt's home life in "Home is Where the Hurt is."
As is always the case, these episodes feature excellent writing and acting. The lessons are hidden in the fun and drama of the show. Long time fans or new listeners will be captivated for hours enjoying the small town life of Odyssey.
