Jet: The True Story of a Talking Supercrow

Rhoda Bacmeister
First, he learned to eat. Then he learned to come when called. Then to wear a cape and ride a bike. Next he mastered hide-and-seek. Then he learned to talk. Not bad for a crow. Jet went on to master the wicked art of summoning the neighbor dog (Kroker! Come, Kroker, come!), only to rebuke him in his master's voice (Bad dog! Go home, Kroker!). Then one day he came to church. This is the true story of one fabulous bird with a 30-word vocabulary whose raucous antics delighted all who knew him--well, except for the neighbor who raised pigeons.

BRADLEY BOOTH

Escape From Egypt

Bradley Booth
The guards were shouting excitedly and suddenly the whole camp was in an uproar. It was like the world was coming to an end, and everybody knew it!

Children began running around in circles screaming. Men and boys rushed here and there with their ox goads and cutlasses, bumping into one another, knocking each other over in the sand. Oxen, goats, and donkeys reacted to the alarm and began to rush in every direction.

Meshach looked on in fear, not knowing what to expect next, but he needn't have worried. Somewhere in the confusion and noise of the moment a voice of strength called out to the people. It was the voice of Moses.

"He that dwells in the secret place of the Most High can abide safely in the shadow of the Great I Am!" Moses' voice boomed out. "Don't worry, my people! Jehovah is our refuge and fortress. In Him we must trust!"

Miracles of the Mantle

Miracles of the Mantle

Bradley Booth
Nathan watched in horror at a sight he knew he would never forget as long as he lived. The mother bears came bouncing out onto the road, roaring as though on a mission of vengeance! This screaming crowd of boys was too near their babies for comfort, and they intended on protecting their cubs at all cost.

When Nathan first met the prophet Elisha, he had hoped to see a miracle or hear an exciting story. But he surely hadn’t counted on anything like this. What would happen to Amzi and the other boys who had been tormenting the prophet?

Nathan’s adventures with the prophet Elisha would take him places and show him things he never expected – floating ax heads, oil that never ran out, bitter water turned sweet, even wild bears. Along the way, Nathan would learn incredible lessons about standing up for what he believed in, keeping his faith in Jehovah, and loving even those who wanted to do him harm.

Could Nathan stand up for what he believed in? Could you?

Plagues in the Palace

Bradley Booth
“Enough!” The majestic Pharaoh Amenhotep rose from his ivory throne. “Words mean nothing to me!”

Meshach didn’t know it yet, but he had just witnessed the opening scene in a drama that would change his whole world forever.

The first plague attacked Osiris, the god of the Nile. The second plague, frogs everywhere, created big problems for the believers in Seqa, the frog-headed goddess. The plagues that followed would cause Meshack to question everything. But as each plague proved another of the Egyptians’ gods powerless, he began to see that Jehovah loved him and wanted him to be free.

Shephard Warrior

Shephard Warrior

Bradley Booth
What is it like to go away and fight? David wondered. It seems like it should be exciting, but then again, going into battle must be terribly frightening too.

David glanced across the fire at his oldest brother, Eliab, who was sharpening his sword. Eliab looked like a soldier, with his leather armored vest and his spear stuck into the ground beside him. His jet black eyes looked stern, and his jaw muscles tightened as he gripped his sword in his strong, sinewy hand. As Eliab turned to leave, David jumped to his feet.

“Eliab?” David grinned excitedly. He was almost afraid to ask the question. “Do you think I could join the army sometime soon and fight with you and Abinadab and Shammah for the king?”

“You’re not old enough to fight, anyway, so you can get that notion out of your head! When you’re a grown man, then you can sign up. . . . And besides, if you leave, who will watch the sheep?”

As far as important jobs go, being a shepherd was just about the bottom of the heap. Most people hated the idea of being a shepherd. Sheep were smelly and stupid and totally unpredictable. But to forsake them? Never. David would rather spend endless days and cold nights caring for the sheep than to risk the life of even one sheep.

Come along! The journey is just beginning for the shepherd warrior.
