                                                              “Impactful!”

 

This book is truly impactful and inspiring. It skillfully blends the

excitement of questing heroes, the exploration of intriguing multiverses,

and a fresh perspective on gospel stories. I was captivated by its thought

provoking content and the way it challenges your perception of familiar

narratives. It's a book that will leave a lasting impression, reminding you

of the transformative power that lies within the pages of a truly exceptional     story. If you're seeking a book that delves into themes of faith, courage and

the profound changes love can bring, then this is an absolute must-read

                                     “A Captivating Journey of Faith and Parallel Worlds”

 

"The Chest of Visions" is a remarkable and thought-provoking fiction book.                 It takes readers on a captivating journey through parallel worlds, where

the connection between Caperston and Earth is explored. The characters

are compelling, the theme of forgiveness is deeply resonant, and the book

offers valuable lessons for reflection. With its seamless blend of faith and        parallel universe exploration, this five-star read leaves a lasting impact.

Book Three:  The Underground Faith of God’s Multiverse

 

Reviewed on May 31, 2023 by Melinda Butler

 

                                                          “Interesting Sci-fi Book”

 

The Underground Faith of God's Multiverse by Tim Ferguson is a book that

is a Christian sci-fi drama that is well-written. It brings together two genres

that are not always compatible. Though well-written, it could use a little

help with grammar. Throughout the story, it highlights a lot of Christian

themes and messages. Thanks to an angel of God, two worlds are able to

survive due to cooperation. Hope and faith are running themes throughout

the book. Ferguson has a real imagination with how they put the two genres that are not as compatible as others. If you like books that are interesting and full of wonderful illustrations that bring the story to life, then this is the book for you. I would recommend this to anyone that likes sci-fi.

                                  Two Possibilities exist:    Onlinebookclub Review: October 28, 2022

"Two possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not. Both are equally terrifying." This famous quote by Arthur C. Clarke kept ringing in my mind as I read this book...

Tim Ferguson advances Cosmology theory that explores the possibility that during the Biblical creation process, after the creation of Heaven and Earth, the Spirit of God created two parallel universes by dividing the existing one into two. In this case, the two universes would be the Earth and Caperston. Similar unfortunate events happen in both universes that would drastically change the lives of their inhabitants. The Earth faces a deadly war that destroys its vast parts, killing most of its occupants. In the Caperston land, an irresponsible, crude, and defiant leader starts a fire to tame religion but destroys an otherwise firm a stable kingdom. The recovery from these two events gives rise to leaders in both worlds. Kudo, whose brother dies in the war, takes charge of his village and goes on missions to find other survivors of the war in a quest for unity...

I have to applaud the author's imagination and creativity.

He builds these stories, the infrastructure, the characters

and the events of these parallel universes quite expertly

Tim knew what he wanted toput out there and delivered i

perfectly...

I loved this book for most of its message. The author used

the citizens' experiences of these two worlds to convey the

vital messages of loveand forgiveness. The Bible quotes in

the book were also profound and added authenticity to the

stories. The book's length was also perfect. The author put

all this information in just over two hundred pages.

Yet, it was good enough to pass the message without being tedious

or unnecessarily lengthy.

 A "Fascinating Concept ..."

 

​​The Chest of Visions by Tim Ferguson is such a fascinating concept; that teenagers from parallel universes discover such similarities between their faith and beliefs. I absolutely adored Mattpaul as a character, his strength of conviction to stand up and fight for his beliefs was admirable. The similarities between Jesus and Chihaysu also made for a really interesting comparison, especially their views on how every human is equal. I thought the themes covered such as life after death, sinful behavior, forgiveness, and miraculous healing from the perspective of each universe would make an important discussion session for youth religious groups... This is a superb read and one that belongs on every Christian's bookshelf.
