The Sugar Creek Gang: The Killer Bear Review Oct 28, 2005
Paul Hutchenes is a very adventurous writer. His story the Sugar Creek Gang: The Killer Bear always ketp you guessing and on the edge of your seat. The one thing I didnt like about this story is that it wasnt just about finding the bear it wsa also about each one of the gangs lives. The gang always goes swimming in the summer. Circus the leader of the gang brought up the bear the whole gang was quiet as a church mouse. Then they heard a big branch snap they all turned white. One of the many reasons i liked this book is because once you picked it up you cant put it back down. Cicus is my favorite character because he came from a bad backroud and he had the easy way to go down the wrong paths, but he got saved by the Lord and he took the right paths. When he told his alcohloic dad that he was saved by the Lord his dad rushed to get saved by the lord. When they were both saved they both hugged and cryied. The scene that I liked the most was ehn the book decribed everybody and their backrounds, The question that I has was why didnt the gang tell it to their parents.
Discipleship 101 for kids... and a whole lot more! Jan 8, 2005
I am a mom to 5 boys and our family has been hooked on the adventures of the Sugar Creek Gang for a few years now! We originally discovered the stories through an awesome set of cassette tapes. The books were dramatized for an radio series by Paul Ramseyer of Northwestern College Radio in Minnesota and our family is now a part of the ministry, helping to produce the audio series for families to enjoy at home! Do you want your children to learn gentle lessons of courage, faith & friendship on THEIR level? Do you want to see real growth in their character? The stories are fun adventures with the truth of God's plans woven skillfully throughout. See the world through the eyes of Bill Collins, a freckle-faced, firey-tempered red head. You'll enjoy Bill's antics and the barefoot fun of all the boys in the "gang"! (As a side note, I do recommend the books be read in order. They tell an ongoing story from beginning to end.) From the back of the tapes: "Step back in time... to one-room schoolhouses, hot summer days of fishing, fun and barefoot boys. Sugar Creek Gang stories engage the imagination and draw a child's heart into a living relationship with God! Hymns, scripture verses, nature lore, poetry; sensitivity toward the disabled, the oppressed... and the courage and confidence to share the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ." --- Just the right recipe for training up a child!
My Boys Were Cheering For More! Jun 10, 2000
When roudy, squirmy boys beg for more, you know you have a hit in your hands! Not only did the story carry them - and me - along, the lessons taught can carry them through life! In a very natural fashion, Hutchens introduces themes such as the joy of hard work, manners, cleanliness, the foolishness of drunkenness, caring for others, Bible reading and prayer.
This book could be used as a Sunday School class discussion - a week per chapter. Its strength is that though filled with nuggests of sound Christian wisdom and advice, it is not preachy or devoid of story line. We enjoyed this breif tome so much, we are looking forward to starting another Sugar Creek Gang book tomorrow. This fun read is worth the time and generated some healthy discussion. It is definitely boy friendly! (Note: I caught my 11 year old daugther listening in as well.)
