In Catch the Light, evidence for intelligent design is shared through interesting characters and witty dialogue. In this entertaining fictional story, complete with a delightful whispering narrator, a young atheist becomes engaged in a conversation about the origin of the universe with a variety of people as they come and go in a coffee shop. As many of the common arguments for and against Intelligent Design are discussed, the atheist is both figuratively and literally enlightened as he learns about the vast amount of evidence there is for the existence of a divine creator. With each new bit of information, he catches a glimpse of light.

A note from the author:
I was inspired to write this Catch the Light role-play reading story after hearing Frank Turek speak at my church during an apologetics series. I then read, I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheistwritten by Frank Turek and Norman L. Geisler and became so engaged I couldn’t put it down. I also connected with their concerns about Christian youth dropping their faith after high school because intellectually these students don’t know why Christianity is true. Being an author and publisher of over 100 role-play reading books for youth, and a mother of three strong Christians, I knew I must create a role-play reading story that could present the tremendous evidence I learned from these exceptional Christian apologists, in an entertaining way, and not just for youth, but for all ages. I pray that has been achieved and that God will bless this work.
