“The Chest of Visions: Secrets of Caperston by Tim Ferguson is an excellent read that I devoured in what feels like minutes. The plot is highly engaging, and I was turning pages well into the night. I just did not want to put this book down.

I like Mattpaul, the protagonist. It is a very well-crafted character. He has a comfortable life but after an event that changes his vision of his world, he starts questioning everything. His decision to stand for what he believes is right and his emotional struggles take him down a potentially life-altering path. He will make some enemies along this journey. Will his faith support and “transform him into a worthy witness of God’s love?”

This great read mixes gospel stories, fantasy and adventure to create a novel that I am sure will fascinate readers. Strongly recommended.”

 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.

The Chest of Visions: New Pathways 'cross Broken Highways, has many twists and turns .  The heady turn of events and the numerous characters are easy to follow though because Ferguson is consistent and does not veer away from the message for young readers. Without sounding preachy, and without too many words, the story's theme comes out loud and clear and this is what makes the novel unforgettable.
