Beyond a Blast From the Past

by Lise Caldwell

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


"Welcome to Rocky Ridge, the home of Chip Livingstone and his cosmic hip-rock praise band, God Rocks! All the characters we meet in this place are mineral based, and named accordingly. The God Rockers, Chip, Gem, and Carb, praise the Creator. Nugget, Chipís annoying little sister, comes up with some rockiní ideas. Soap salesrock Buck will blast you out of your seat. And what about Splinter, who takes recycling so seriously he decides not to eat anything? Sometimes Ruby and Cliff (Chipís mom and dad), Pastor Jasper, Deacon Dug, and their teacher, Mrs. Crag have their work cut out coping with these smooth stones.

"Discovering Why God Made You, one of the God Rocks! Gold Nugget Guides written to companion the God Rocks! video series, provides ten zany, straight-to-the-point Bible studies about Godís purpose and plan for the individual and for the universe. Written for ages eight through twelve, the subjects covered include worship, encouragement, prayer, Bible study, thinking of others, taking care of Godís world. The hip, imagination-grabbing, cosmic illustrations add verve and value to the narrative. Each chapter contains a Rocky Ridge story, idea engendering questions, Buckís take on the subject along with his memory verse, and ideaís for acting on the lesson. The last pages give an overview of the videos, music, and stories in this series." -- Donna Eggett, Christian Book
