sophisticated enough for teens. The story text/narration is 97%
straight from scripture, with only minor modifications for clarity.

-How compassionate IS God?

Other older Jonah CDs got stuck on "the whale." Ours does not.
While we certainly do have a whale (and even a whale spittin' game), we
look at the entire story, including
the conduct of the sailors and the Ninevites. We contrast them to
Jonah's GRUMBLING self-righteousness. We explore the argument between God and
Jonah over the plant and city.
Our Jonah story is 98% word for
word from the scripture,
wonderfully drawn animated graphics backed with great music and strong character voices.
Jonah's story also features several games. Read on!

More about Elijah & Jonah CD's
unique "interactive comicbook interface"
This CD's animation,
illustrations and navigational are unlike anything
we've ever produced. Student and Teachers have tremendous
navigational control --flipping pages and interacting with
individual panel in the comic book-like layout.
Each scene is narrated and musically scored. Animations and pop-up study notes
abound, including mini-quizzes,
and narrated discussion questions. Mini-games within each story
engage the kids, and games and quizzes at the end of each story
Both these stories are filled with
interactivity and content-related
Smoochie the Whale's "Spittin' Game, for
example, students blast Jonah from the whale's mouth and try to land him in
the right places. They learn about the people, situations and places where God wants us
to go and share his message.
JONAH has two
content-oriented games built into it: Smoochie's Spittin' Game
(about "how you can be a prophet in your daily life"), and Wormie's Game (about
taking away Jonah's comfort zone)
ELIJAH has four games built into it. Including
"Baal Invaders" and "Catch me if you can."
Each story also has several "mini-games"
throughout the story. And there's a two player quiz game "all about Elijah's stories" on the
CD. It's sort of like an onscreen board game.
In addition to the games and main
storytelling, each story has a variety of activities, study notes and quiz
questions which appear throughout each story.

Hi Neil, I wanted to tell you how delighted I am
with the Elijah and Jonah software. It's a really great combination of fun
and discussion points. I shared it with my fifth grade class on Sunday and
they didn't want to leave when class time was over. My 12 year old daughter wandered in while I was going
through the software at home and she kept working with it when I had to go
off and do laundry!

I’ve just previewed the “Jonah” portion of the
disk, and it’s great. I’m going to use it in Bible study with the kids at
our summer music camp, who will be producing a Jonah musical. Thanks again
for helping to make our kids’ Bible exploration more exciting!
~Julie W., St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Burlingame, CA
Elijah and Jonah is awesome! The
content is straight from the Bible; the application questions are right on
target, and the games have "kid-appeal".

was a huge hit ! Thanks so much!
~Lynn M. Church at Libertysquare, Cartersville GA
Neil, we just wrapped up a
month with the theme of “A Runaway Prophet & aBig Fish” and your Elijah
& Jonah software was the PERFECT way to end our month. This is your best
software yet! Not only did our younger kids enjoy it, the youth Sunday
School class invaded our computer lab when they heard the fun and took
turns playing “Wormie.”
