Adventures on Promise Island

  • By Ruth Esther Vawter
The choice was easy: Go to jail or fly to some remote island for a week. Promise Island is the last hope of healing for four troubled teens plagued by anger, rebellion, rejection, and trauma: Miguel is a gang leader, who comes to the island handcuffed to his parole officer. Tobi, the rich kid, has bullied people all his life. He's had a good teacher-his dad. Ya Ming hates God. She has been traumatized by an accident that killed her beloved brother and left her paralyzed and unable to walk. Keerstin is a devoted Christian teen, storyteller, and artist. Yet she feels rejected because she cannot read. High adventure awaits these four youths as robot-driven vehicopters transport them across the island, submerge them in the Sea of Tranquility, and bring them to the edge of Lookout Point. They are challenged to take a closer look at who this "Jesus" really is and how He can change their lives. Through visions, healings, and the Holy Spirit appearing in the form of a dove, Miguel, Tobi, Ya Ming, and Keerstin gain wisdom and lasting peace. "Ruth Esther has written one of the best books we have read in a long time. Adventures on Promise Island-is electric It's a powerhouse This book is what this new generation needs to read to combat stories like Harry Potter and Twilight. Finally a book for Christian families to enjoy. We know this will be a classic for years to come." -The Chrisagis Brothers, Chrisagis Ministries & Productions
