The Eternal Messiah: Jesus of K'Turia.
Fairfax, Virginia (PRWEB) October 21, 2009
What happens when Jesus is discovered on another planet? That's the theme of W. R. Pursche's latest book: "The Eternal Messiah: Jesus of K'Turia." With co-author Michael Gabriele, Pursche explores this provocative topic in this speculative Christian fiction release.
Sometime in the future, in a time of great turmoil, a preacher named Jesus appears on another planet. What is his message? How do people in another place and time respond, and how do people who know of the Biblical Jesus react? Would they believe he is really Jesus Christ? Would they think he is an impostor? Would they try to change what they think might happen?
Robert Feather, author of "The Secret Initiation of Jesus at Qumran," said: "Reading 'The Eternal Messiah' has rekindled a long term interest in science fiction--a genre with no boundaries, which is brilliantly exploited by the authors as we are drawn into a complex world of intergalactic struggles and intrigue. The fascinating idea that Jesus Christ enters into the mix and has been returning to challenge evolution and to find out if the eternal truth has at last been understood, adds a profound philosophic dimension to the story. And what is the eternal truth? The only way to find out is to read this enthralling book."
Pursche and Gabriele envision a future where the "science vs. religion" argument still rages, with the same level of thinly veiled antagonism. One of they key characters, a scientist, has developed a controversial theory that a religious figure is needed as a catalyst for cultural transformation. She sees this Jesus as proof of her theory, and struggles to get others to believe her. Professor Richard E. Rubenstein, author of "Thus Saith the Lord, The Revolutionary Moral Vision of Isaiah and Jeremiah," writes: "In 'The Eternal Messiah: Jesus Of K'Turia,' W.R. Pursche and Michael Gabriele dramatize the provocative idea that the appearance of a Messiah is what transforms stagnant, tradition-bound societies into vibrant and humane civilizations. One does not have to be a believer to be intrigued and moved by this well-told story: an excellent work of theological sci-fi."
W. R. Pursche is the author of the popular book about life lessons from dogs: "Lessons To Live By: The Canine Commandments." He donates all net proceeds of that book to animal rescue. For more information visit http://www.CanineCommandments.com
