   Here’s something you’ve never heard before.

   I promise…

.

   I’m going to presume you’re a daily Bible reader.

   Still here?

   If you’re open to a 2-month adventure, go through the DOOR.

   (1)  Consider the novel, The Blood of Three Worlds, shown in the sidebar on the right. (You can go in it and explore a sample, with just a click on the book on right.)

.

   (2)  Consider the Bible books Matthew and Acts (28 chapters in each. Therefore 56 altogether).

.

   (3)  Consider this assertion: TBOTW (above) reflects upon and applies information from the 2 Bible books (also above), in the context of a sci-fi romance that is also informed by the latest (as of this writing) astronomical research about exoplanets and other scientific knowledge. Further, the text is very readable, and key information is repeated and repeated as the story moves along. Even further, the story is “batched” in episodes, much like a TV mini-series. Be prepared for forever, one-way space travel by 2 precocious, caring, and naive teens (a boy and girl) and their pilot who must face each other along with fallen humans created exactly as they are, but with a new culture with a new language, witches, assassinations, poisoning, life and death, and birth and rebirth in a new world. (It’s a good, “shelf” book to discuss. Many will enjoy rereading and sharing particular episodes!)

.

   (4)  Note: It’s been formally endorsed by an astrophysicist/seminary prof of New Testament, a missionary linguist, and a professional Christian guidance counsellor.

.

   (5)  The novel has pictures (art by Dominic Catalano), 35 chapters, an epilogue, and a postscript that never seems to end–75 pages long with 3 appendices, responding to obvious complications, concerns, and premises.

.

   (6)  With a tad of imagination, one can “match up” time-wise  a “chapter or so” of Matthew-Acts with a “chapter or so” of The Blood of Three Worlds over a “2-month” period. (There’s no one-on-one comparing, however.) This is stepping a bit out of the box. Fiction is fiction, but fiction can inform and stir the pot of contemporary speculation–in a way that’s delightfully–and readably–a bit different from secular-driven alternatives¹.
