Concord Cunningham Pursues the Clues
The Scripture Sleuth 5
In Concord Cunningham Pursues the Clues, a gift from outer space is about to be stolen. Cheaters are about the win the Pine Tops Marathon. A fancy wedding is seconds away from disaster unless someone can reach a runaway ring. Who can stop these crimes and solve these puzzles before it’s too late? Grab your Bible, follow the clues, and you can crack every case! Highly recommended for ages 7 to 12.
12 stories in each volume. Concord investigates an exciting new mystery in each chapter. But instead of revealing the solution at the end of the chapter, Concord gives readers a Bible verse to look up. The Bible verse holds the final clue to that chapter’s mystery, so readers must open a Bible, find the verse, and look for the clue.
When readers are ready to see if they have cracked the case, the solutions are at the back of the book. You’ll realize that having a broad knowledge of God’s Word imparts wisdom to us that can help us in surprising ways and in all sorts of situations. These make great family read-alouds also!
Each volume contains twelve mysteries, only about five pages in length each, so they’re very readable in brief moments. We guarantee, the kids will want you to read another one and another! Concord’s father is a reporter for the local newspaper, which often is a catalyst to Concord running into these mysterious situations! The series also explains “Concord’s Secret,” which is its own witty way of teaching kids what a concordance is and how to use it.
Mat Halverson has found a fantastic formula that combines brainteasers with the Bible. While the mysteries are not overly difficult, these books are just delightfully fun.
