There's hardly a Christian family with children that has not heard Focus on the Family's radio series Adventures in Odyssey. This second volume of Odyssey scripts is by Phil Lollar, veteran Focus writer and one of the radio show's founding fathers. Paul Mccusker compiled, edited, and wrote the collection's special introductory chapter. Each script is in its original radio format, so the stories are written to be read as reader's theatre or as a radio program, but probably not staged as live theatre -- though some adventurous groups might find it fun to try. Indications for sound effects and music cues have been retained. These scripts will be a welcome addition to kids' Sunday School classes, youth acting troupes, VBS projects, or any place children want to get involved with the stories' familiar characters and intriguing plots. Volume 2 has the following scripts: "The Tangled Web" (2 boys, 1 teen girl, 3 men, 1 woman, 1 person); "The Boy Who Didn't Go to Church" (2 boys, 2 girls, 3 men, 1 woman, 2 people, extras); "Tales of Moderation" (a mixed cast of humans and talking appliances).
Second in a series. Includes three scripts introducing a variety of the Odyssey characters. Reactions to these Adventures in Odyssey radio scripts have been excellent. Besides his long-term relationship with Focus on the Family, author Phil Lollar has specialized in writing for children. Besides its obvious use in Sunday School and VBS, the Adventures in Odyssey scripts can be used for advantage in family worship that will involve parents and children.
