I had fun with this one. Four smart teenagers go on the adventure of their lives, traveling back in time, discovering what the Bible really says about creation, dinosaurs, and other pertinent elements to the foundation of Christianity. Faced with danger, international intrigue, relationships challenged and deepened, and spiritual devotion-solidified as well as strengthened-this series not only entertains, but is an excellent tool for answering, with a clear and simplistic approach, those questions that have perplexed many. Ideal for the young reader, enjoyable for the old, The Truth Chronicles delivers something wonderful to us all.
If you had a time machine, to what time and place would you want to go? Jax Thompson and his friends, Izzy Weber, JT Bankers, and Micky Simmons are back. Having invented a time machine using research done by Jax's father, who was involved in an explosion at his laboratory and has been presumed dead, they had set the machine to go back 4,500 years but encountered dinosaurs. When they returned home, JT and Micky won the science fair with their hover technology, but their model was destroyed so they can't really prove it, especially with most of their work incorporated into the top secret time machine, and the reporters are skeptical. Meanwhile, new evidence has arisen that leads the government to believe that maybe Jax's father had something to do with what had happened at the lab, so Jax and Izzy go back to the time of the accident to see if they can learning anything that will help clear Mr. Thompson's name. JT is a firm believer in creation, while the others have accepted the concept of evolution, so after going to hear the minister of the church where JT attends discuss evolution and creation, the four students propose a contest, making a list of hypotheses as to what they would see if either evolution or creation were true, and decide that when school is out they'll go back to see which hypothesis fits with the evidence. Also, Jax really likes JT, but she won't date him as long as he's an unbeliever. Will Jax find the answers to his questions about God, suffering, and evolution? And will he learn any information about his father? Tim Chaffey is a minister, cancer survivor, author, and apologist, with a passion for reaching young people with the gospel. He's the founder of Midwest Apologetics and a popular speaker at camps, schools, and churches. Joe Westbrook is a clinical lab technician at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. His hobbies include photography, fishing, hiking, and writing. Here is science fiction from a Biblical worldview. The Truth Chronicles are exciting reading that does not compromise the message of Christianity but actually helps provide some answers to such issues as to why God allows suffering, why creation is a viable alternative explanation to evolution, the question of believers dating unbelievers, and how young Christians can have a good influence on their non-Christian friends. We have really enjoyed the two books of the series that we have read so far and look forward to the conclusion.
I've wanted to read the Truth Chronicles for some time, but I was always dissuaded by my dislike for Manga comic books, which I incorrectly assumed from the covers that they were. The Time Machine was not only a "real" novella, but a fast-paced one with a good amount of action and a message that was delivered in a pleasant, non-preachy style. My only complaint is that they didn't spend as much time as I would have liked in the prehistoric world. I'm looking forward to book 2!
