Captain Jack's Treasure by Max Elliot Anderson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Captain Jack is an intriguing man with a ship that needs to be cleaned up. Luckily, Sam and his friends Tony and Tyler are in a position to help out. Every day, as long as their chores are caught up, the boys will join Captain Jack at his ship to get it back into sailing shape. The boys long to hear Captain Jack's stories at the end of the day over an order of pizza. What they don't realize is that Captain Jack is giving them stories in the form of parables, or life lessons.
This is a book of love, redemption, honesty, and most importantly, hope. The overlying theme is to not store treasures here on earth, but rather store your treasures in heaven. While this book isn't overly religious, it does speak of focusing on heaven and the eternal life rather than this temporary earthly life.
I recommend this book to youngsters, especially those who like a good adventure!
