    I’ve just finished ‘Reality Shift’. WOW!!! This book takes off. Matt’s laptop is a tool that has to be used. And as a tool can be used wisely or foolishly, so Matt and his friends can have many exciting adventures (and many ‘teaching moments’ for us parents). Well done Chris, not just a tecno-gimmick, but a well thought out device to train our kids with. THANK YOU! — Laird, England

    Just wanted to let you know that my nine-year-old who isn’t much of a reader, read the first laptop book in less than two days! Thanks so much for the great books. He showed me the code of ethics at the end. He’s already starting book #2! — Tricia, Montana

    I really like your book. It’s really cool and it’s got lots of action in it.

    They’re the best books I’ve ever read. I really enjoyed them and can’t wait to read more.

    I’m glad you took the time to make these cool books.

    This book for boys is a shining example of crackerjack fiction writing. It’s full of imagination, well-crafted language, and fast-paced action. The book’s exciting writing serves as a good example of its main message: words are powerful.

    When 13-year-old hero Matt Calahan receives a mysterious laptop computer, he discovers just how powerful words can be. And along the way, he discovers more about Jesus, the Word Incarnate.

    How great it would be if all Christian books were this much fun to read.

    —, listed as “One of the Ten Best Books of 2002.”
