Synopsis

2025 scientists plan to time-travel to Eden to warn Adam and Eve and thus prevent the fall, putting 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). Will they escape? And will they ever come to learn the true answer to the problem of sin and evil in the world?

About the author

James M. Becher

I, James M. Becher, was born on June 8, 1943 of a Christian family and accepted Christ at an early age. Interested in writing and drama since High School, I graduated from a Christian high school, where I participated in several plays, got A's in English, and wrote write several short stories, poems and articles, usually incorporating my faith into my writings. While attending St. Petersburg Jr. College, in St. Petersburg, FL, I won second prize in a writing contest with a Biblical short story, which forms part of my first novel, Of Such Is The Kingdom. I attended Bob Jones University, in Greenville, S.C., and then Clearwater Christian College, graduating with a B.A. in Bible-lit. I went on to Biblical Seminary in Hatfield, Pennsylvania and graduated in 1974 with a M.Div. Ordained in November of 1974, I served in different Ministries, one of which was a foreign student ministry. It was there I started writing my first two novels, and there, I met my dear wife, Berenice, from Venezuela. We were married in 1980 and went to Caracas, Venezuela in 1989 for an extended stay, where, along with teaching English, I completed my purposeful time travel novel, "Impossible Journey, A tale of times and Truth," using a friend’s computer. Upon returning to the U.S., I tried in vain to purchase a computer without proper credit, and then one day a man came to my door with a computer, and said the LORD told him to give it to me. So, because of the Lord plans, I was able to also complete the Biblical novel, "Of Such Is The Kingdom". Also shortly after returning to US, I began publishing a self-help ezine, my articles from which form my self-help book "Principles of the Kingdom." In 2006, I revised and expanded Of Such Is The Kingdom. Then in 2012, I had the opportunity to preach a Christmas sermon, which resulted in my writing “The Christmas Victory, A Gem of A Sermon, All Wrapped Up In A Historical Novel.” This year, I submitted Of Such Is The Kingdom to WestBow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson and Zondervan, and, following their editorial assessment, completely revised it again, with historical accuracy fact-checking and fine-tooth-comb editing. ---James M.
