“Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve." Joshua 24:15
In this second book of the Truth Seekers series, Bill Myers combines comedy and suspense to capture the importance of Biblical truths. Project Truth Seekers’ crazy invention is a super-holographic replica of Noah’s ark. No problem, except with Noah’s ark comes Noah’s animals—all of them! In an effort to fix the Machine and remove the animals from camp, big brother Jake (older than sister Jenny by 12 minutes) enters the fantastically real computer program. Here, he experiences a world similar to our own with its sin and rebellion. But it is a world that could be saved, if the people would repent and trust in God’s only means of salvation.
Meanwhile, Jenny and Jesse, her sort-of-boyfriend, travel back in time to stop Jenny’s father from making his own wrong decision. Laughter and drama abound as both Jake and Jenny learn the importance of making right choices . . . until both are hurled together into a spectacular encounter that nearly destroys Jenny’s life.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This was another interesting novel in the Truth Seekers series. Bill delivers a message of how we all have choices and not just concerning if we will follow Christ or not. Based on whatever choice we make, it will affect our future somehow as Bill points out through the Biblical story of Noah. Like with book one there is a lot of humor. Many times I found myself giggling or straight out laughing. However, there were many other times I also felt myself in wonder and contemplation. Jennifer's spiritual journey to the higher dimension was very powerful and spoke to me concerning fear being greater then my King. Due to the spiritual themes of CHOICES, I would only recommend it to older middle schoolers. It could be possibly frightening for some kids with certain scenes, but there is still a great message and enjoyable story that leaves it memorable. Plus it makes a great discussion to talk about over dinner as a family. *(I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
