And I should add that RELICS was just re-released this week in a second edition. It's available from the publisher at www.thomasnelson.com (use the toll-free number 800-251-4000 ext 2180 if the 'buy now' button is still out of commission) and will be at Amazon and other places later (the older 1993 edition is at Amazon but you'll want the one without the typos!)
