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."
This next excerpt from my purposeful time-travel novel continues their stay in 33AD Jerusalem, as they now glimps the taking of Jesus to Ciapas for trial...I included this event to show the change in the attitude of the crowd from the previous day, and the surprise of time-travelers at this change, and to lead genltly up to the horror of the crucifixion, Stay tuned.
Impossible Journey, A Tale of Times and Truth
The next day finds our friends working hard to fix the trouble. Walt helps for a while on the interior trouble and then goes outside to finish replacing the tiles. Suddenly, he hears the sound of many voices coming from the street. He enters the ship to tell the others: "Hey, guys, it seems like there’s some excitement out there. Why don’t we take a break and go have a look." "We have been working pretty hard at this agrees Kerry. "What? Are you guys going to leave me again?" "Well, you could come along. This work will wait." "Ah, I guess I might as well. No use being the only one of us who hasn’t seen 33 A.D." ************ They can barely see, at the front of the crowd, a man bound and being led along by the mob. As they push their way through the crowd to get a better view, Walt asks someone, "Who are they taking?" "Why Jesus of Nazareth. Don’t you know?" "But he seemed to be so popular the other day." "That was then. He’s been arrest on the charge of blasphemy, and we’re taking him to Caiaphas for trial." "Wow!" whispers Walt to Daniel, “We certainly did come at a historic moment!" "Yeah, I guess so. Something like seeing the shooting of old Abe Lincoln--Now, there’s an event I wish I could have witnessed."
