You won't believe what happens during a "normal" game of catch. Matt and Jack discover a trap door outside Whit's End that takes them back to the pre-Civil War South where Matt is mistakenly sold as a runaway slave. Can Jack find Matt in time to rescue him? In another story, an out-of-town man comes looking for work and a busy Whit quickly turns him away. But when the man returns and interrupts a Bible contest, their lives are forever changed.

Standing up for what you believe isnt easy, as the kids in Odyssey discover in these four engaging stories. In Point of No Return, Jimmy Barclay finds that doing the right thing can cost him everything he thinks is most precious. In Dark Passage, Jack Davis and Matt Booker ignore a keep-out sign on the Imagination Station. Suddenly, theyre in preCivil War America, where slave traders capture Matt. The story continues in Freedom Run as Matt escapes from the slave traders and is joined by Jack for a thrilling Underground Railroad adventure. In The Strangers Message, Mr. Whittaker and the kids at Whits End meet a stranger in need and ask themselves, What would Jesus do?
Author Paul McCusker has written over 200 episodes of Adventures in Odyssey and been involved from the early days of the show. Set in a time before the radio show, these stories often reference the beginnings of inventions like the Imagination Station, familiar characters like the Barclays coming to town, and other AIO references that fans will enjoy.

Dan4 Stars Out Of 5Great Book!August 6, 2016DanQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4"I already own the first two books, so this just added on to my collection. I love AIO. The message was great. Point of no Return- its when Jimmy Barclay thinks becoming a Christian will make life easier, but he finds out the opposite.
Dark Passage- when Jack Davis and Matt Booker disobey a KEEP-OUT sign on the Imagination Station and decide to take a ride to-an adventure in the Civil War!
Freedom Run-Matt joins Jack, and both of them have a thrilling Underground Railroad adventure!
The Stranger's Message-A stranger comes to Whit, looking for a job. Whit and the kids at Whit's End ask, " What would Jesus do?"
I thank Paul McCuster for the best Odyssey book ever! Thanks, AIO!"
David Gillette5 Stars Out Of 5So good they are read-again stories.December 12, 2013David GilletteQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a great set of stories. The thing I enjoyed the most was the realism within the story and how the story connected two stories together. The two stories connected are the life story of the characters who travel in the imagination station and the historical experience they have in their journey. In my opinion this motif is one of the factors that makes all the earlier stories just a little bit better. It makes them read-again stories.

aklinslowAnchorage, AKAge: 18-24Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Adventures in Odyssey, in book form!August 27, 2012aklinslowAnchorage, AKAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I grew up with the Adventures in Odyssey radio show and still LOVE it to this day! So upon coming across this series of books by Paul McCusker, one of the incredibly talented writers for the show, I was intrigued and had to read. And I'm really glad I did.
"Point of No Return" takes the reader back to a time before even the first episode of AIO and gives some great backstory to a number of characters, as well as some characters whom we never meet in the show. My favorite part of the book was the chronicling of Jimmy Barclay's coming to know Christ as his Savior. He was one of my favorite characters on the show, and I loved that this book gave you a glimpse into his past. :)
There's a lot more to the book, and I won't give it all away, but just simply say that if you're a fan of the great radio show, Adventures in Odyssey, I can see no reason why you won't love this book too!
