Modesto, CA, February 22, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- There’s only one requirement to make it into heaven, and that is exactly what the young hero of author C.V. Riebe’s new book is about to find out in Jonathan Jameson in the Crossroad Chronicles: Volume 1, Adventures in Heaven, published by Outskirts Press.
Jonathan Jameson is an adventurous boy intrigued by the realm of the unknown, and his , video games just aren’t satisfying his need for adventure. He’s a good boy at heart; he attends church regularly and is always eager to help others. But there is a void in his life and a question that plagues him: Is there really life after death?
The boy’s dreams are interrupted one night by the angel Gabriel, who takes him a journey of a lifetime to places others only dream of visiting. Their destination? Heaven—where the streets are paved with gold and the fruit tastes like the most scrumptious of delicacies. Jonathan discovers a river where he can not only swim but breathe its water. And best of all is his reunion with a loving grandmother he has never met before.
Throughout this journey, young readers will wonder if this heavenly place is real, and if so, how can they get there? Riebe want’s youngsters to know that yes, through faith in Jesus Christ, they, too, can find heaven in the afterlife. Jonathan Jameson will appeal to parents looking to instill spiritual values in the lives of their children and encourage dinner table discussions on morals , ethics and a belief in the greater good—something that seems to be sorely lacking in today’s society.
The vision of Jonathan Jameson in the Crossroad Chronicles will one day include a removable, thin bookmark. Just like Jonathan in the book, those who accept Jesus Christ at the end of the book can place the scarlet bookmark around their wrist as a way to openly declare their faith. And this is Riebe’s ultimate goal: to introduce children to the love of Christ and give them hope for a rewarding spiritual life after their time here on earth.
