Jay C. Bugg uses fiction to give readers a better understanding of the second coming of Jesus Christ in his new novel, "Journey to Antipodes".
Round Rock, Texas (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
“I wanted to present a different view of the Second Coming of Jesus than the popular ‘rapture’ version which I believe to be a false view,” Bugg explains. “I do not believe my view (often called a Preterist view) has been presented in fiction before now.”
Set in the wilderness of Alaska, “Journey to Antipodes” tells an original tale of survival and adventure juxtaposed against the conflict of faith and reason in a post-apocalyptic world. Dr. Judah Elsen, a professor of Middle Eastern studies and converted Rabbi, must teach his flock the truth about Jesus Christ’s second coming.
An excerpt from “Journey to Antipodes”:
“Once again he took the pipe from his baggy side pocket, the bowl still warm and the silk-lined pocket worn thin as a fishnet by unrelenting cinders. Judah sat back in his chair, deep in thought about how to move his flock into the truth of Jesus’ words, as the sweet-smelling smoke swirled upward like incense before the throne of God.”
