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 to put out there and delivered i
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 love and 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.

Christian Sci-fi that shares the struggle between the beleaguered Mountain People and the biased Valley People.

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.
