In the future, a group of scientists plan to time-travel to Eden to prevent the fall of man, and thus put an end to all evil and disease in the world. At first, they can only go back about 200 years at once. They visit the California Gold Rush and Colonial America. They are pulled forward unexpectedly to their future and forced to fight in a senseless war. They break free and take off, finding a stowaway with a device for traveling further back. Thus, they meet Leonardo Da Vinci and discuss humanism. But, by mistake, they take off without the stowaway and his device. The lever jams, bringing them to Martin Luther and an argument over faith. By adding alcohol to the fuel, they manage to arrive at Camelot and finally, ancient Jerusalem, where they at last realize the real answer—the true end and goal of their mission.
NOTE: This book has recently been translated into both Spanish and German by the publisher. I don't have digital copies to put here but you can find the translations on the web.
I, was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on June 8, 1943 to a Christian family and accepted Jesus at an early age. In Jr. High School, I became interested in writing and drama. I wrote poems, articles and a few short stories, and plays. In college, I won second prize in a contest with a Biblical short story, which now forms part of my first novel, “Of Such Is The Kingdom, A novel of the Christ and the Roman Empire,” published in 2003.
In 2010, I wrote the sequel, “Of Such Is the Kingdom, Part III,
Power and Persecution, A Novel of the early Church and the Roman Empire.”
I also wrote a Sci-fi novel, “Impossible Journey, A Tale of Times and Truth” and a non-fiction book, “Principles of the Kingdom."
I graduated from Clearwater Christian College in 1970 with a B.A. degree in Bible-Literature, and from Biblical School of Theology in 1974 with a M. Div. Ordained in November, 1974, I served as assistant pastor/Bible teacher in several churches. I also served in a foreign-student ministry, where I met my wife, Berenice Carett from Venezuela.
In 2014 I wrote an American historical novel, called "The Christmas Victory."
I added this next little bit to Chapter 11 to give a reason for skeptical rime-travelers to have to stay and in AD33 and veiw the next two most important events which could possibly bring their mission to an end.
stay tuned or nuy the book.
Impossible Journey, A Tale of Times and Truth
Back at the ship, they try to share their enthusiasm with Daniel, who is tired from working on the ship and, thus, not very interested. "Did you find the alcohol?" he asks, expectantly. "Oh, my goodness! We forgot all about it." "What?! That fellow must be some kind of spell-binder! Well, it doesn’t really matter. We’ll still be here for a while, by the looks of it. I tried to adjust the directional mechanism, but there seems to be something broken. I’ll need your help, Kerry, to fix it. I also replaced several of the tiles, but not all of them. Walt, why don’t you keep working on the tiles, while Kerry and I try to fix the directional mechanism." It is impossible for Walt to replace all the tiles before darkness sets in. "Have to finish this tomorrow." "And guess what? We discovered a problem in the fuel system also. Looks like we’re going to be here for a while." After supper, they try to contact home base, but the communication is so garbled that they cannot make out anything.
