About the author
(If you don't find the answer to your question, please don't hesitate to email it to Questions@ScriptureSleuth.com).
Q: Will my version of the Bible work with the Scripture Sleuth mysteries?
A: Most major translations of the Bible (NKJV, KJV, NIV, NASB, RSV, etc.) will work with the Scripture Sleuth mysteries. The clues hidden in the Bible verses are facts or ideas instead of single words, so they translate very well. If you buy a book and your Bible version does not work, we'd be happy to refund your money.
Q: Do the mysteries involve ghosts, magic, murders, or anything I might find objectionable?
A: No. These are clean, fun, lighthearted mysteries that we believe all Christian parents would feel comfortable allowing their children to read.
Q: Are these books published by a denomination?
A: The books are published by Focus Publishing, a small Christian publisher not associated with a specific denomination.
Q: How many mysteries are there in each book?
A: There are 12 mysteries per book.
Q: What is the reading level of the books?
A: The suggested reading level for the series is ages 8-12 (grades 3-7), but people of all ages seem to enjoy the mysteries and looking up the clues in the Bible. Many younger readers have enjoyed the books with the help of their parents, and we've sold quite a few books to teenagers, too.
Q: I see that there's a boy on the cover of the books. Are these books just for boys?
A: Not at all. These stories are for all kids. The focus of the stories isn't on boys or girls, though there are plenty of characters of each. The real focus of these books is on the fun mysteries and using the Bible to solve them.
Q: Does ScriptureSleuth.com ship books internationally?
A: Yes. However, we request that you contact us at Questions@ScriptureSleuth.com for additional information including shipping rates and payment methods. Currently, our preferred method of international payment is through the Paypal system. We ask that you send payment from the Paypal website rather than using the Paypal buttons in the ordering section of this website, which are set up for domestic purchases only.
Q: I'd like to order your books through my local bookstore. Is this possible?
A: Yes. If the bookstore is supplied by one of the major book distributors, it will be able to place an order for the books. You'll need to give the store either the official titles of the books or the ISBN numbers. Here they are:
