Item description for Summer at Steller's Creek by Anne Clay Cernyar, Joan Clay & Gary Habermas...
Penny, I said uneasily, It's getting dark. She looked around at the darkening water and deepening shadows. Then we stared at each other with wide eyes. Let's go! she quavered. We reeled in the fishing line, grabbed our bait can, and started back through the trees. In a few moments, we reached the trail and paused to catch our breath. Then we heard it. Deep in the willow thicket, as if something heavy had stepped on it, a branch cracked. We stood paralyzed for a second. Don't move! I whispered, just as Penny screamed and started running up the trail toward the cabin. ***A spunky twelve-year-old homeschooler. A remote cabin in the Rocky Mountains. An older brother's secret. A lively wolf-dog pup and dogsled dreams. A dangerous visitor, and a hostile neighbor with unsettling questions. Is Jessica ready for her summer at Steller's Creek? *** Extra! An Afterword with discussion questions presents classical arguments for God's existence. From the Foreword: A delightful read. It keeps you reading and enjoying the story while you learn how to walk with God. I highly recommend it!Dr. Gary Habermas, Distinguished Professor and Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Theology at Liberty University.

Reviews - What do customers think about Summer at Steller's Creek?
Great read for young folks! Feb 27, 2002
This book may be of special interest to homeschoolers since the main character Jessica is homeschooled (as was the author).
Part of Jessica's story is about her having her faith challenged by a skeptical friend and then trying to figure out why she does indeed believe in God. The author cleverly weaves Jessica's struggle into the story so that it flows naturally rather than dominates the book. In an afterword the author presents some classical arguments to prove God's existence, as well as some discussion questions. I thought this was an interesting and thought-provoking addition to a youngster's novel.
Great Storyline with a Sound Philosophical Base! Sep 26, 2000
This is the kind of story that I would definitely recommend to young girls between 7th and 11th grades. The story was very well-written and entertaining, and it kept my interest the whole time. It is extremely appropriate for and applicable to teenagers because they need to have real answers regarding the origin of the world and their faith, and this is a fun story that solidifies the answers to the questions we all ask sometimes. It is a great story of discovery and soul-searching, but it does not come across as an over-simplified religious doctrinal statement...rather an honest search for truth that ends in a young girl's confidence in her Maker. Anne is a masterful storyteller who weaves the events of the story into three arguments for the existence of God in an understandable and memorable way. The characters and places she creates from her own experiences come alive to her readers. The readers can relate to the struggles Jessica faces, even if the remote surroundings and unusual events are far from familiar to them. The importance of the issues Anne tackles cannot be underestimated, and she brilliantly explains from different Scriptures and experiences how a person can know that there is a God and what that God is like.
