My Review:  Adventures In Odyssey has been one of my family's favorite ways of storytelling for generations! We began listening to the stories on radio, then VHS came out, finally dvds  and now these wonderful books.
Mr. Whitaker has a wonderfully safe place in his soda shoppe where children learn about the Bible and those heroes of faith.
Having read book 1, Voyage of the Vikings, we were thrilled to read the next book, Attack at the Arena.
Book 1 was great but, hands down, we all loved book 2!  Attack at the Arena places cousins, Beth and Patrick, in the realm of the christian persecution in Rome.  
Patrick and Beth begin the trip together but are separated once they enter the city.  Patrick heads into town determined to stay alive.  He meets a monk who imparts great wisdom.
Beth, on the other hand, becomes a slave in the emperor's home.  Beth also has some moments of fear and learns to rely on God.  Beth's story is parallel to Patrick's story but yet they both experience a one.of.a.kind adventure.
The excitement, the adventure and our imaginations took Beth and Patrick through an unforgettable trip that increased our faith.
Short, large font books with pencil like pictures are great reads for those kids (and parents!) who enjoy adventure filled trips that are both faith filled and brings biblical history to life!
