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.

About the author (2018)

James M. Becher was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on June 8, 1943 to a Christian family and accepted Christ at an early age. He was an avid reader in his youth, especially interested in stories about other time periods and also science fiction. In Jr. High school, he became interested in writing and drama. He wrote several poems, articles and a few short stories, plays and novelettes.
While attending St.Petersburg Jr. College, he won second prize in a short story contest with the Biblical short story, "Beggarman-Thief."
He graduated from Clearwater Christian College in 1970, with a B.A. degree in Bible-literature, and Biblical School of Theology (now Biblical Seminary) in Hatfield, Pennsylvania, in 1974 with a M.Div.         Ordained in November of 1974, he served in different areas of Ministry, one of which was a foreign student ministry, which is also where he started writing his first two novels, and also where he met his dear wife, Berenice from Venezuela.  They were married in 1980, and went to Venezuela in 1989 for an extended stay, where, along with teaching English he completed his evangelistic time travel novel"Impossible Journey, A tale of times and Truth."  Upon returning to the US, he also completed the Biblical novel, "Of Such Is The Kingdom".  Also shortly after returning to US, he began publishing his self-help ezine,  "Inspirational Success Tips,"  his articles from which now form my self-help book "Principles of the Kingdom."  Then in 2012, he had the opportunity to preach a Christmas sermon in his church, which resulted in his writing “The Christmas Victory, A Gem of A Sermon, All Wrapped Up In A Historical Novel.”
