Mr. Henry knows that kids can have many different fears. That's why he shares the victories of some of the Bible's bravest characters: David, Esther, and Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. Forget suits of armor and superhero outfits, Mr. Henry says. Asking God for courage and strength is the slingshot any child can use to defeat life's giants. With perfect aim, Mr. Henry shows what can happen when we stand strong and take our best shot for God.
What happens when kids mix a little faith with a big God? They get giant results, as Mr. Henry reveals in his humorous renditions of three Bible classics - Noah and the Ark, Moses and the Israelites, and Daniel and the Lion's Den. From the Moose that licks Noah's nose and the pot of Golden Calf Soup the Israelites drink, to the crazy dreams of crabby King Nebbie and the hungry faces of lions looking for lunchmeat, children won't forget these tales and the truth that there is no other way but to trust and obey.
God loves us just the way we are, and He wants us to love each other, too! That's what Mr. Henry wants kids to learn as he retells these stories from the Bible: the Good Samaritan, Jesus and the disciples, and Jesus and the little children. In his own wacky way, Mr. Henry teaches some of the most important principles of helping one another.
No kid likes to follow all the rules, but Mr. Henry has a funny way of showing that it's totally cool to obey the Lord. Children will come to see that the garden's bananas taste a lot better than the snake's baloney, that it's no fun being fish food at the bottom of the sea, and that red rope licorice goes very well with Jericho crumb cake. It's a smorgasbord of biblical truths about why obeying God always tastes good.

Distraught and disoriented in what to her is the future, she is confined to a mental ward until she discovers a magical ability to pass invisibly through time and space to escape. Alone in a strange world, she uses her mysterious powers to eke out a living, performing magic on the streets and in a quaint coffee shop. Hoping to discover an exciting new talent, Dane ventures into the coffee shop and is transfixed by the magic he sees, illusions that even he, a seasoned professional, cannot explain. But more than anything, he is emotionally devastated by this teenager who has never met him, doesn't know him, is certainly not in love with him, but is in every respect identical to the young beauty he first met and married some forty years earlier. They begin a furtive relationship as mentor and protégée, but even as Dane tries to sort out who she really is and she tries to understand why she is drawn to him, they are watched by secretive interests who not only possess the answers to Mandy's powers and misplacement in time but also the roguish ability to decide what will become of her. Frank Peretti has crafted a rich, rewarding story of love and life, loss and restoration, full of twists and mystery. Exceptionally well written, Illusion will soon prove another Peretti classic.

If you've ever been there,you've never forgotten. The feeling is as haunting and familiar as the smellof a junior high school locker room.It's the feeling of being undersized ... or oversized ... or klutzy ... or less than beautiful. Of being a nerd ... or a geek ... or just, somehow, different.It's knowing you are vulnerable-and someone is ready and willing to take full advantage of your weakness by making your life miserable.It's the fraternity you never wanted to join-the fellowship of the wounded spirit.And bestselling novelist Frank Peretti is a member, too. This book is the haunting true story of pain Frank Peretti never forgot but never, until recently, shared with the world. It's the story of growing up with a medical condition that left him disfigured. A series of surgeries and the slow miracle of answered prayer took care of the deformity, but not the underdeveloped frame or the excruciating reality of being different. And it was for these petty "crimes" that Peretti was prosecuted every day at school-especially in gym class, but also in the halls, on the school grounds, even in his own neighborhood. No wonder he found himself relating to movie monsters who were hated but also feared-and who eventually exacted a bloody revenge on their tormentors! In Peretti's case, deliverance eventually came-through time, through prayer, through a teacher's caring intervention, and his own willingness to seek help. But he has never forgotten what life was like at the bottom of the junior high food chain. And from the reservoir of those agonizing memories he sends a compelling message to victims, to bullies, and to authorities who have the power to intervene-that it's never OK for the strong to abuse the weak. And that we allow such abuse at the expense of our souls ... and our very civilization.Especially in the wake of the massacre at Columbine High School-perpetuated by two troubled but also tormented outsiders--this message takes on haunting resonance. Frank Peretti believes we cannot afford to overlook the continuing reality of wounded spirits, not only in our schools, but in our homes, churches, and workplaces. His approach is both tender and tough as he issues a ringing call for a change in attitude.It's a call for all of us to stop thinking of abuse as "normal," even among kids.It's a call for the strong to stand up and protect the weak, not prey upon them.It's a call for those in authority to pay attention to the violence being done to the vulnerable in the midst of our everyday lives and to take action to help. Most of all, it's a call for bullies and victims alike (many of us are both) to seek the healing and forgiveness offered in Jesus Christ. For that healing is really the heart of this book-the only reality that can break the natural cycle of victimization and abuse.Only in Christ, Peretti reminds, is there hope for the wounded spirits-but that hope is powerful enough to change everything.
