Impossible Journey: A Tale of Times and Truth by James M. Becher tells the story of Walt, Will, and David, who in 2025 get into a time-traveling capsule with the goal of solving all the problems of the world by returning to Eden to prevent the serpent from convincing Eve to eat the apple. Their time machine is a little rickety, though, and can only make small jumps back in time before it has to be repaired. The travelers land in the gold rush, the times of Leonardo da Vinci, Martin Luther, Camelot, and they get caught up in someone else’s time travel efforts and get launched into a future where the world is falling apart. They even land in 33 A.D. just in time to witness Jesus’ crucifixion. Every place they go there are people talking about Jesus. The men get really tired of it until, finally, it all makes sense.
Impossible Journey is narrated in a very casual tone, “The morning finds our friends rising bright and early…,” and the characters break all the commonly accepted rules of time travel. That bothered me a little but was made up for by the fact that I found Becher’s premise fascinating and I wanted to see where he was going with it. The characters have no qualms about changing history – that’s why they’re making the journey. They freely tell historical figures where they’re from and they interfere in events they encounter. When they find themselves with a stowaway from another time, they accidentally leave him in the wrong century without any worries of disrupting the space-time continuum. Although the three men are from different faith traditions, Impossible Journey is definitely a work of Christian fiction, almost like a very long Bible tract embedded in the story. I found it hard to equate Impossible Journey to any other works, although occasionally it reminded me a little of Pilgrim’s Progress. It is suitable for all audiences.
