Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 143368120X, Hardcover)

Based on Psalm 1:1-3:

1 Oh, the joys of those who do not
      follow the advice of the wicked,
or stand around with sinners,
or join in with mockers.
 2 But they delight in the law of the Lord,
meditating on it day and night.
 3 They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
bearing fruit in each season.
Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.

Oliver loves pretending to be a pirate, but learns that blindly following others doesn't leave him with a good feeling inside.

In this Scripture adventure, kids join Oliver as he rights the wrongs done by his so-called Pirate friends.

Through it all, Captain Oliver learns that following God's way is the true way to wisdom!

The second book in the Firefly Chronicle series brings entire sections of Scripture to life via imaginative, fantastical stories that use a passage from Psalms to help children understand and applly biblical truths to their lives. Each book in the series will depict Oliver wearing a different costume as he imagines and adventures his way through God's Word with the help of Phineas, the firefly. The series will address the felt needs of children ages 4 to 8 including courage, confidence, friendship and more with biblical truths about God.

Oliver is excited to be part of a pirate crew led by his new friend Captain Cole. But when the buccaneers cause trouble and make bad choices, Oliver's conscience bothers him. Can he sail with his friends and still follow God? In this swashbuckling tale, Phineas the firefly teaches Oliver that true friends don't tempt us to do wrong or dangerous things. The young pirate is taken on a Scripture adventure through Psalm 1:1-3 and learns that making wise choices leads to the best kind of treasure. -- from back cover.… (more)
