2025 scientists plan to time-travel to Eden to prevent the fall and thus put an end to all evil and disease in the world. But they can only travel 200 years, more or less, at a time. Having gained the needed financial support from wealthy financier, Mark Lewis, the scientists manage to build the first time machine in which three of them take off on their imposing mission.
They visit six different historical time periods, including:: • The California Gold Rush of 1849 • Colonial Philadelphia of 1775 • The Renaissance • Legendary Camelot Each historical time period they visit points in some way to the true answer they are seeking. But they ignore the obvious and go on blindly with their mission. At one point, they are pulled forward unexpectedly to their future where robots serve and are forced to fight in a senseless war (WWIII).
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."
Now, back to our time travellers. Having landed in 33 A.D. Jerusalem and witnessed the crucifixion of Jesus and seen some evidence of His resurrection, but having chosen to ignore the implications of these events and leave that time period, now find themselves again moving forward in time till they hit a lever.. Thus they are forced (by fate, God, or me. the author) to return not long after the time that they left, They land a month or 2 later than when they left. There is also something strange going on with the speech they hear coming from outside the casual. Can you guess exactly when they are, and why I, the author had them make this short trip. I fully intended them to land when they did. If you can't guess why, stay tuned, or buy the book.
Impossible Journey, A Tale of Times and Truth
While Walt was gone, Kerry has obtained the water from the small stream which Daniel heard earlier, flowing softly over rocks and twigs down a nearby hillside. Finally, everything is ready for take-off. "O.K. Let’s get out of here shall we!?!" They measure out the strange smelling liquor, mix the fuel and set the coordinates. Once again, they are air-bound. The capsule Hoovers in mid-air for a few seconds, and, once again, they are traveling in time. But, once again, they are traveling in the wrong direction. "Hey! What’s happening? We’re moving forward, again." "Uh-oh! Probably when we fixed the directional mechanism, it changed the temporal, as well as the locational direction." "Well can’t we try to stop it?" "Fortunately, this time, I believe we can reverse the temporal direction in-flight, but there’s no telling how far back we’ll go." "Anyway, it’s worth a try." "Where are we now?" "60 A.D. and moving forward." Kerry goes to the controls and pushes a lever in the directional mechanism. The capsule spins around and the indicator shows that they are once more moving backward in time. However, the capsule, still spinning, suddenly comes to a stop and comes crashing down to the ground. "What happened?" "Where are we?" Kerry checks the indicator. "Oh no!" "What’s wrong?" "We’re back in 33 AD, about a month or two later than where we were." "Oh my goodness! Is this fate or what?” ************ "Looks like we’ve landed in back of a building this time. I hope nobody finds us here--they’d really be startled." "Say, what's that sound?--seems to be a crowd of people, shouting something." "Yes," muses Kerry, in unbelief, "and it sounds like Arabic. Open the window!" Walt opens the window and stands listening in amazement. "Arabic? That’s not Arabic! It’s German!" "Are you joking?” disagrees Kerry. “I should be able to recognize my native language. They’re praising God in Arabic." "In German!" "What seems to be the trouble?" asks Daniel who has been examining the meters and levers in an attempt to determine the cause of their quick landing. "Come here and listen!" urges Walt. They’re saying praises to God in perfect German, only Kerry insists it’s Arabic. Come listen and settle this for us." Daniel goes to the window and listens only to stand back in awe. It’s not Arabic, and it’s not German. It’s perfect Yiddish. Why, I haven’t heard Yiddish spoken like that since I was a boy." "What is going on here?" "I don’t know, but why don’t we go and have a look?" "Yeah, I guess the mission can wait a little longer. I’m curious as hell about this.
