Stuck in the Virtual World, Carson Tidwell
Atlas and his friends are at a table. Colton and Sam are heatedly bickering, only to stop when Allison laughs, falling out of her chair. Elijah antagonizes Chelsea and, as she is about to throw a fork at him, there’s a knock on the door, grabbing everyone’s attention. The door cracks, then explodes open as a very shy boy is pushed in by a very energetic girl. Three steps behind is another boy, and a girl holding tightly to his arm. Following behind them are more people. As they all take their seats, Atlas reflects on past moments:
An encounter with cloaked people, a battle with a giant, a destroyed town, a shy little girl with white hair, and then hundreds of people dressed in white red-trimmed uniforms. His attention snaps back to the present when there is a loud knock . . .
AO: Alpha to Omega
In the spirit of Moore’s Lamb, Alpha to Omega seeks to entertain and inform—it’s not a moralistic treatise, but simply a human spin on Biblical interpretation.
“If the Bible was this much fun, I probably would have paid more attention in Catholic school! Amy Adams Squire puts a spin on the Bible that is entertaining, refreshing, and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny. And she is a gifted enough writer to make sure she leaves you with the message without it tasting like medicine. This is a wonderful and unique way to renew yourself with stories from the Bible and walk away with a little joy in your heart.”
