For you to be a good entertainer (of any kind) you can't expect the presentation to be served to you on a silver platter. You have to rely upon your own imagination and artistic skills to personalize the presentation the way you want it.
Can't find religion in card tricks? Here's an example: Most people know the card trick NFW. It's been on the market for a while. Four face-up cards turn face down, one card at a time. Then, the face-down cards are turned over to reveal that they have changed to completely different cards.
1. The four cards can represent 4 brothers
2. Each of the four brothers face an event that challenges their faith
3. Each brother turns their back on their faith
4. Until one day, they are transformed and find their way back to God.
Again, the presentation of any effect is only limited by your imagination. Go back and re-read Mark Wilson' book with an open mind. There's more magic in those pages than you will ever need.
hmmm. . . maybe your right. NFW. . . what does that stand for? isnt MERCURY pretty similar to the explanation you gave me? if so then i know how to do it, its just i thought i would get caught with multiple card supposed to look like one. . . but that is a very nice idea! thanks
