"... Fascinating...    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. .... Most places they go there are people talking about Jesus. The men get really tired of it until, finally, it all makes sense 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. When they find themselves with a stowaway from another time, they accidentally leave him in the wrong century... I found it hard to equate Impossible Journey to any other works, although occasionally it reminded me a little of Pilgrim's Progress. It is suitable for all audiences."  ---Donna Gielow McFarland for Readers' Favorite 
     

Reminiscent ofThe 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. ....
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 [&meet] various famous personages....Through a series of coincidences, the team also gets a peak into a bleak future awaiting the team if they fail in their mission."      ---Tami Brady for Goodreads



"I am
so happy that I read this intriguing novel.  The Idea:  In the future, a group of scientists plan to time-travel to prevent the fall of man, and thus put an end to all evil and disease in the world. At first, they can only go back about 200years more or less at once. They visit the California Gold Rush and Colonial America and meet several notable historical figures.  At one point, are pulled forward to their future and are forced to fight in a senseless war"                                  ----Berenice Carett.

From the Author

This is the first book I wrote.  I got the idea and started to write it at International House in St.Petersburg, FL, but, then my wife and I went to Venezuela for an extended stay, and so  I wrote most of this book in Caracas, Venezeula circa 2002, on a friend's computer.  
I wrote this book primarily as a tool to reach sci-fi/fantasy fans with the good news ot the gospel.   I say sci-f/fantasy because one reviewer pointed out that it could be classed as fantasy as well as sci-fi.    I guess that's because it doesn't follow strictly the rules of sci-fi.  I didn't know there were any rules when I wrote it.  But,  as a student and lover of history I chose time periods that not only intrigue but also in some way point to truth.
This book relates to my Biblical novel in that it has the same general purpose and in that the next to last chapter also takes place in the time of Christ.

Reader’s favorite award winner James M. Becher writes to help readers find true fulfilment through faith... Born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, he was an avid reader in his youth, especially interested in other time periods. In Jr. College, he won second prize in a contest with the Biblical short story, Beggarman-Thief.

A graduate of Clearwater Christian College, and Biblical School of Theology, James was ordained in 1974, and served as assistant or associate pastor or Bible teacher in several churches. He also served in a foreign student ministry, which is where

he met his wife, Berenice from Venezuela. It was there also that he began working on the Biblical novel Of Such Is The Kingdom, based on his prize winning short story, Beggarman-Thief and dealing with some unique seekers who might have lived in the time of Jesus.

In 1984, James and his wife spent a year and a half in Venezuela, where, while

teaching English, he also worked on his second novel, Impossible Journey, a time

travel novel, using different historical periods to point to truth. Upon

returning to the U.S., he completed his Biblical novel, Of Such Is The Kingdom.

It was published in 2003. He then completed Impossible Journey and it was

published in 2005. In 2010, he revised and expanded Of Such Is The Kingdom,

adding a Part III about the early Church.

James has also published, written articles for and edited the bi-weekly ezine,

"Inspirational Success Tips." His articles from the ezine now form the major

part of his self-help book, Principles of the Kingdom.

In November of 2012, he preached his unique "Christmas Victory" message, which resulted

in the writing of his latest novel, The Christmas Victory, A Gem of A Sermon,

All Wrapped Up in a Historical Novel. which was published in 2014. In 2018,

James updated all his books, re-doing the cover of Impossible Journey to reflect

the content, publishing 4 editions of Of Such Is The Kingdom, and adding a

special full-color Christmas Gift Edition pf The Christmas Victory. Then, in

2020, he re-published Of Such Is The Kingdom through WestBow Press, revising it

again, with fact-checking for historical accuracy. And in September of 2020, it

won finalist in the Reader’s Favorite awards.
