Have you ever wondered what it would be like to find yourself in another time entirely? This has always fascinated me.

Would you be able to embrace the challenge of living in another time, and share Jesus Christ with those around you? Or maybe even … Read More

#1 New Wizard of Oz Allegory: No Space Like Home

Swirling Starfield

I’ve encountered more than one Wizard of Oz allegory in my life, and more than one of them has been very Sci-fi in nature. I especially enjoyed the movie on the Sci-fi network a few years (decades) back. I have to say, though, that today’s book, No Space Like Home is by far the best. This book takes on a Wizard of Oz Allegory with both futuristic/spacetravel fun, and the Good Shepherd into the bargain. It’s like a perfect collection of my favorite elements! Were you a fan of the Wizard of Oz movie growing up? I’m sure the splash … Read More

Experience Synapse: Steven James New Book

ArynFamily3 Comments

Welcome to #ChristianBooktober Day 11: Synapse- Steven James New Book I thoroughly enjoy Sci-Fi. You can call me a Trekkie and I wouldn’t mind. Shows like Sliders and Eureka are fun! But they all lack that thread of faith, of being able to trace the fingerprints of God. I also enjoy Crime shows like JAG and NCIS. They cover some awful stuff, but Justice wins. A little graphic sometimes, but satisfying to see the good guys solve the case. Steven James new book, Synapse, has the best of both of those, without any bad language or graphic displays that you … Read More
