In Pillars and Power the teens must face the heinous breath of hell, its venomous forces unleashed with relentless spite. In hopes of seeing the wicked reign of Sasson end, the teens follow the path of obedience straight into the den of darkness, sacrificing themselves to the very end, yet always with ‘a heart for any fate.’ (Intensity level is PG, with suggested age from 10 and up.)
