    Unique Historical Novel

    What events would mankind choose to observe in time¿what singular events define the history of the world? Alan Fisher learned first hand the purpose of the second mission into time. He became an unwilling and accidental participant in a great experiment to record the words and death of Socrates¿The Second Mission. Sophia was his reluctant guide. The second mission was hers, and she did not want to share it with anyone. She trained ten years to become Sophia, a Greek woman of 399 B.C. For this one year of history, 400 to 399 B.C., neither Alan nor Sophia could return to their own times. They were linked together for better or worse in the second most important mission of mankind. Yet Alan Fisher, marooned in time, turned into Sophia¿s greatest hope of success¿for her mission and for herself. And because of the first mission, Sophia became Alan¿s greatest hope of spiritual deliverance. The first mission changed Sophia¿s world, and the second mission would also change the future of humanity. The Second Mission is a unique experience in literature. It is a heart-pounding time mission story that fully incorporates the environment of ancient Athens in 399 B.C. Greek society, culture, literature, and philosophy come alive for the modern reader. The Second Mission brings to life Socrates, Plato, and the School of Hellas. It provides a stimulating method to introduce and place into context the Socratic dialogues: Euthyphro, Cratylus, Crito, Phaedo, and The Apology of Socrates.
