We have loved all the Jonathan Park adventures until this one. Of course the Biblical, historical, and archaeological information is amazing and there are other parts of the story that model true Christian behaviors but it seems unnecessary and unbelievable for the characters to have so many life threatening experiences in one adventure. How do the characters not suffer from PTSD? In this adventure we were disappointed in the change in Jessie. We noticed that she all of a sudden screams for little or no reason, is obsessed with food, does not care about her parents advice, and is quite a bit more immature. We loved that in the past episodes Jessie was becoming a wonderful example of a young woman, but did not find that in this episode. It almost seemed like Jessie's character was changed for comedic effect, but we did not find it funny at all. Although we love how Jonathan and Issac protected Jessie, the first thing that our kids mentioned was that Issac threw a rock at Jonathan's head. What kind of example does that set for young children? Also we missed hearing the families work together to overcome an issue. It seemed the kids were on their own, and the phone calls back home were few and short. It is also irritating as a listener to have the villain identified over and over and yet no actions are taken to stop the villain. Overall we still appreciate the biblical evidence, but are unsatisfied with the rest of this series.
Love these audio dramas! The story lines are captivating and enhanced by great sound effects! The information and concepts that are shared are fascinating and show that there is tons and tons of evidence which supports what we read in the Bible. This is a great tool to help me teach my kids stuff that they won’t necessarily hear elsewhere.
Another hit with our Family!! Thank you so much
This series has prompted so many great questions from my kids, and it opens so many opportunities to have discussions about things that might not otherwise come up. And it's so fun and interesting to listen to - they insist we turn it on every time we're in the car!
It was very enjoyable. Jonathan Park has been a household favorite for nearly ten years now. Looking forward to the next adventure!
Pursuit of Destiny
The kids are completely enthralled by this series. Good values, clean fun and entertaining. I have a feeling we will have the series memorized in no time!
Wow! We Loved this album! It kept the whole family at the edge of our seats waiting for the next turn in the adventure. This album exemplifies most of what we have come to love about Jonathan Park over the years. The twists and turns made it an engaging audio drama. The kids loved the history lessons wrapped in a fast-paced adventure. I liked the fact that it tackled real issues. I would love to see even more scripture and biblical truths woven through the stories so it can strengthen and encourage the faith the kids listening to JP. In my opinion, this is the formula that works best for Jonathan Park. Keep them coming! We can hardly wait for the next pack to come out. We'll be sure to hold on to our seats!
I loved it! I'm 7 years old and I love the adventures, they are so good! I learn a lot about the Bible and nature.
My whole family loves the Johnathan Park audio! We will order the next one when we have more funds, well worth every dollar!
Both my kids and I are learning so much. The stories are exciting and keep everyone listening.
The kids always beg to hear Jonathan Park when we travel. Years ago we had the disks but they seem to be scratched up now. Thankful to get it as a download.
My kids-ages10,12,&14 love these series and was not disappointed with the Copper Scroll series. Love the way that God and His word is proven true over and over!
My kids (and I) love these! They beg to listen to all of them and want me to buy more series. Very inspiring, captivating, and educational! It has given my kids and I confidence to defend our faith! Thank you so much!
My family loves these programs. This one was the perfect purchase at this time for us too, as the Park family starts on a new adventure with moving and homeschooling, and we are beginning major new adventures for our family as well.
Haven’t been able to successfully download it yet.
These are great teaching tools.
You guys keep taking JP to the next level with each successive release. Top notch stuff! Thanks for all you do.
So far we are loving the series. Very very good. My 7 year old grandson is listening and taking it all in. I enjoy them too. Lots of adventures going on.
The Explorer's Society Series Pack
I haven’t had time to listen to it yet, but my oldest loves the stories! He can’t wait for Christmas, to hopefully receive more.
We love Jonathan Park books and being able to download them is really convenient.
This was the most exciting adventure yet! Keep them coming, please! --Isaiah (age 13)
So far so good?
Grands love it 😍
My son loves these series! he listened to series 1 and series 2 and he's already asking for series is 3 and 4. He listens to it during the night and all the time. Learning so much.
Really Good! Love it! Keep it up!
Looks great! I printed it up at Office Depot and my 16 year old says she'd like to go through the study guide with her younger siblings.
Fast shipping, amazing product! My kids (9 & 4) absolutely love these - the scientific evidences and conversations ‘shown’ are amazing - I’m learning right alongside my girls! Very thankful for this resource that gives us intelligent responses regarding science and our faith being harmonious and not at odds. Many thanks to the Jonathan Park team!!
Jacob (12) and Rebekah (10) enjoy Homeschooling with K12 Virtual Academy. But after listening to The Adventure Begins last week during writing class: well, game changer. They just can't get enough.
We listened to it again this weekend, running errands just for fun. We are all learning so much.
State of the Art sound effects are incredible. It feels like we're there. The suspense is real: heart racing, blood pumping.
You won't be disappointed.
The stories and biblical insight have the kids engaged and looking forward to the next adventure
The Adventum Volume 1
My new JP CDs are really good. They talk about fossils and it’s very interesting. They are really fun to listen to and learn from!
We have listened to the first three stories and love them! The children can’t get enough of the adventure and I am loving the gospel message!
Great stories for pre-teens and more. Even adults enjoy them.
My great grands are loving these and learning the truth about the world our great God created for us to enjoy!
I love this Series!!all of JP are Great!
My kids don’t want to stop listening to these episodes! They are exciting, educational, God-centered and very interesting! I would recommend it to everyone!
My family listened to it on a long journey and they loved it. They liked how it was easy to follow, exciting and good use of evidences to support creation.
My kids can't get enough of the stories and all the action. They are completely engaged in listening to the story.
I purchased for a Christmas present. I dying to open them up and watch myself though, lol
My kids are loving these
Have four special needs grandchildren and this goes not work for them.
Our kids LOVE their Jonathan Park CDs so much that they wanted to hold more than 1 CD. They love that they can get to know the characters better since the voices are fun and easy to follow. The stories are engaging and totally entertaining while educational. We, as parents, love that we are learning more and more how to defend the Bible through science. The kids want all the Jonathan Park series!
Ella and Isaiah
The kids just absolutely love Jonathan Park! The stories are so exciting and help build their faith in the creation world view...the kids just can't get enough of Jonathan Park!
My 7 year old, science and fact enthusiast absolutely loves the series. He enjoys the mystery, scientific facts and hearing about evidence on creationism. He's really learned a lot like the Fibonacci sequence! We can't rave about this series enough. Looking forward to buying the next series.

Josiah and Isaiah listen to the same disc so many times I have to say, "Boys! Choose a NEW disc, please!"
My kids love Jonathan Parks! Every time we get in the car, it's the first thing they ask us to put on! They love that each episode is an adventure and just good old fun and excitement! Thank you so much for making these!
I like Jonathon Park because, in the midst of all the adventures, they bring in God's wonderful design. The stories are full of excitement. I can't wait to get more!
