Fans of Adventures in Odyssey will be glad to know that in recent years Christian audio drama has been making a comeback. For instance, Heirloom Audio Productions has created five fantastic dramas of the highest quality, all based on books by G.A. Henty. The titles adapted so far are Under Drake's Flag, In Freedom's Cause, With Lee in Virginia, The Dragon and the Raven, and Beric the Briton. And there's more to come. Up next is The Cat of Bubastes, an exciting tale of mystery, intrigue and suspense set in Egypt. It releases this summer. Here's the story's summary:
The sacred cat of Bubastes has accidentally been slain; now young Chebron must pay for the offense with his own life, as this is the law of the Pagans in Egypt, 1250 BC. Chebron, the son of an Egyptian high priest, flees for his life, taking his sister Mysa, one of the household slaves Amuba, and several companions with him. They escape through closely guarded Egyptian exits only to find themselves in unfamiliar and dangerous lands inhabited by a very different culture of people. Along the way, the roving band of refugees encounters and befriends a Hebrew girl, who exposes them to very strange ideas, including the worship of the "one true God."
