At 14 years old, Christina Gerwitz knew that she wanted to be a novelist. With the help and encouragement of her parents, Christina created a Christian Adventure novel series that is laced with mystery and creative support for the creationist viewpoint.
The Missing Link:Found is the first book in the series written by Christina and Felice Gerwitz.
The story centers around the adventures of a homeschooled brother and sister when they become part of a mystery involving the FBI and an archealogical dig for what could be the missing link!
The action, adventure, and mystery are used to conceal a very educational perspective on Creation. The reader will learn about Carbon -14 dating, the importance of chronology in the feild of anthropology, and more. They will learn through the character’s examples how to argue for creation, while respecting the other side as people.
Too often, Christians can become fierce in their beliefs and not hear the other side. This book, and its characters show that an approach of kindness and patience is far more effective as a witness. People want to hear what we have to say when we honor their opinions enough to listen to them (even though we don’t agree). I think that this point alone makes it worth the $8.99.
Here it is:
*A compelling story.
*Fun pleasure reading.
*Lessons in witnessing.
*Lessons in Creation Science.
Here’s what it is not:
* A perfect example of grammar and editing.
*A boring story.
*A weak portrayal of Christianity.
*A be all and end all of Creation vs. Evolution.
Having looked at some of the pleasure reading options for teens today, I would concider this a fine choice. Its content is much more edifying and educational.

While I’m talking about this series I also want to mention the other great products this company offers.
