The Truth Chronicles

With just over three weeks to go until the live show, it seems like the Odyssey updates are coming in fast and furious! Those of you who heard our recent interview with producer Marshal Younger may remember his reference to The Truth Project, a Christian worldview curriculum for adults taught by Dr. Del Tackett. What some of you may not realize is the fact that The Truth Project is a product of Focus on the Family. To be honest, I missed the connection when Marshal first mentioned it!

Ignorance notwithstanding, it's worth noting that Focus decided to create a special series of Adventures in Odyssey episodes in conjunction with The Truth Project. While The Truth Chronicles will not represent the fifty-first album, it will include characters like Whit, Connie, Wooton, and the Kidsboro kids. But don't mistake this for a regular album. The Truth Chronicles were designed to teach The Truth Project lessons for kids, and as such the morals and messages in this particular album will be more overt than "normal" Odyssey episodes. Regardless, I'm definitely looking forward to this special set. Aside from the three Kidsboro episodes, all of which are included in this album, the remaining eight episodes were written by Paul McCusker. Take a look at the cover art!
