This Adventures is Odyssey is great to help one to grow spiritually grown! This volume deals with some very relevant topics like being part of a church and how we need to give not for God's benefit but for our own spiritual benefit! I would highly recommend this volume of Adventures in Odyssey #56 to one and all!
The Grand Design is definitely a good addition to Adventures in Odyssey. It contains good humor, and good lessons. However, one episode seemed to be a little to silly, and a couple that don't really seem to give the point good background. But overall, album 56 is good to listen to.
This album has definitely become one of my top favourites. The stories were very well done; but the only thing I didn't really like is that in "The Holy Hoopster", Jay spoke a tad flippantly about Jesus and prayer, but what Ryan said about glorifying Jesus in everything he does was amazing... it really made me think :) And of course... "Home Again", where Jason, my favourite character, returns to Odyssey!!! Anyway, this album is definitely worth listening to, despite "The Holy Hoopster". 5 stars for "The Grand Design! :)
