They teach Gyra English and disguise him as a man in a chicken costume advertising a local restaurant, a scenario with comic moments At Action Packed Science Fiction From A Refreshingly Different Perspective The First Book In A Groundbreaking New Series David Decker Is Stunned Driven By His Christian Compassion, He Has Just Rescued A Marooned Space Alien, But The Alien S Mere Existence Threatens To Shatter David S Worldview How Can He Reconcile The Two When David Learns The Truth, It Will Astound Him But David Has Other Troubles Shadowy Government Forces Are Desperately Trying To Capture The Alien In His Quest To Follow His Convictions, David Must Battle Enemies Seen And Unseen And Travel To Incredible Places He S Never Imagined What if go into all the world and preach the gospel to all nations was only the beginning of the Great Commission What if Jesus, in taking on human form, was not just becoming human but was also becoming naharam, a class of beings to which humans merely belong What if God called you to take the gospel beyond Planet Earth to a universealive than you d ever dreamed Arana s Visitor by Julie Rollins explores those questions in an imaginative, exciting story Book 1 of the Vadelah Chronicles vadelah is an alien word roughly translating to apostle , it opens when Panagyra, a member of a bird like species called the phantera, crash lands on earth But the story quickly shifts its focus to David Decker, an ordinary college student who tries his best to live out his faith with integrity even if that means showing ho Don t let the slightly awkward start to this book put you off Rollins tells a story with humor, truth and insight into human nature This is unlike any other science fiction, coming from a Christian world view, allowing God s truth and creativity to weave a great story.
It is hard to put down This is such a good, descriptive and adventurous book From the perspective of a college aged David Decker, Christian and philanthropist, Arana s Visitor is about strange alien encounters, loving your neighbor even if he DOES happen to be an alien from outerspace and the amazing love and grace of God It shows me that we may not know what will happen, and everything may look bad, but God always has a plan He knows I really recommend this book and the books that follow I loved this book It was very intriguing to read the authors kids go to my school I simply fell in love with the places and characters she describes in her books.
Anyone who can should definitely read these books.
I feel like it s impossible for me to give an accurate rating to this book since, not only has it been so long since I read it, but I was about 14 I loved it then but objectively it probably left something to be desired The premise is very ambitious It s about a guy who goes to be a missionary to the aliens The theological leap of logic required to get there is a little bit well, I mean it s just fiction, so I ll leave it alone, it s definitely not the worst way that aliens could appear in Christian sci fi Once you have managed the suspension of disbelief required to assume that humans are not the only beings made in God s image, and so on, it is interesting, but a little bit err cringey due to the way that ce
I really wanted to like this book I like science fiction and I am a Christian, but I do not feel like this book combined the two of them well.
Some people have said that the Waterbabies is a good book if you read the abridged edition that tells the story with out all the tangents that Kingsley goes off on That is the impression I have after reading about half of this book Like it was trying to out do Christ in his Christianity.
Plus there were a lot of cliche evangelical spiritual happenings Being attacked by feeling a constricting about the throat, happy feelings after prayer, strange feelings that alert the reader when demons are near, wind blowing when the Spirit is near, boldly going where not Christian has gone before I found it difficult and painful to read Now the book is geared towards teenagers so maybe I am being too critica This book is totally awesome I LOVED it It s about a college student who finds an alien and is totally changed Very nicely written Good plot, too Once you start you just can t put it down
