Here's more of Chapter 7 ("Tribulation & Patience"). Here is when they land after being pulled to their future. You can guess by the last paragraph of this excerpt that they have come to a future time of war. That's another clue to my purpose in having them pulled to the future--but all that will be clear later. The print book is only $5.99, and, the eBook is now FREE in most eVenues, $0.99 in Kindle.

SYNOPSIS AND REVIEWS OF "IMPOSSIBLE JOURNEY, A TALE OF TIMES AND TRUTH": IMPOSSIBLE JOURNEY is the most unique novel of all sci-fi novels (science fiction novels) ever! It's truly a sci-fi (specifically time-travel) novel with a purpose!!
What do these historical eras have in common: 1)the California gold rush, 2)early colonial America, 3)the Renaissance, 4)the Reformation, 5)the time of Camelot and 6)the Roman era? They all contain valuable lessons which point to ultimate truth.
What do a group of future scientists from all over the world have in common? A desire for truth, hope for a bright future and a belief in a Divine being of some sort.
Put all the above elements together and you have an explosive formula for a great sci-fi novel, a fantasy adventure novel which could also be of interest to fans of historical fiction and Christian fiction as well as those of science fiction.
In the future, when time-travel is theoretically proven an universally accepted, a group of scientists of all faiths decide to try to time-travel back to the Garden of Eden in order to prevent the fall of man and thus put an end to all sin, sickness, and disease. They manage to gain the backing for the project from a wealthy financier. The trouble is, they can only go back 200 years, more or less, at a time and will have to make repairs to the time cylinder at every stop. Thus, they visit the historic California gold rush and then early Colonial America. Then, they are pulled forward unexpectedly to a future time of trouble, where robots serve and forced to fight in a senseless war. They manage to break free and take off only to discover they have a stowaway. But the stowaway has a device which will help them to go further back with each leap. Thus, they then time-travel to the Renaissance and meet the historical figure, Leonardo Da Vinci, But, by mistake, they take off without the stowaway and his device. Then, they are pulled forward again, but only to the time of the Reformation, where they meet Martin Luther and have an argument over faith. Then, with the help of a new fuel formula, using alcohol, they manage to arrive at Camelot and finally, Ancient Jerusalem, where they, at last, realize the real answer: the true end & goal of their mission. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- REVIEW by Tami Brady Impossible Journey is reminiscent of The Time Machine by H. G. Wells with a unique twist. In the year 2025, a team of researchers (representing various cultures and religious beliefs) create a time machine. The aim of this mission is to go back in time to the Garden of Eden to warn Adam and Eve not to be tempted by the serpent. The team hypothesizes that if this event can be altered, then sickness, death, and war will disappear not only from the modern world but also throughout human history. Thus, the face of humankind would forever change with this one act. The journey contains a number of twists, turns, and unique challenges as the team members are chaotically thrown into various significant events in human history. During this journey, the team meets various famous personages such as Martin Luther, King Arthur, and Jesus. Through a series of coincidences, the team also gets a peek into a bleak future awaiting the team if they fail in their mission. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From the Review By Donna Gielow McFarland for Readers’ Favorite -- 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. .... Impossible Journey is narrated in a very casual tone, “The morning finds our friends rising bright and early….” I found Becher’s premise fascinating... 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. It is suitable for all audiences.
