In a last-ditch attempt to convince his TV producers to run a story on alternate realities, Davis Conrad decides to film the professor who convinced him that such realities exist. Along the way, after a strange accident he can't remember, Davis finds himself fleeing police by hopping into a VW van straight out of the 1960s. The group he's with, dressed in tie-dye and peace symbols, head for a motel laundry room, where they've heard that a miracle will occur. As he lays eyes on an unnamed baby boy, Davis flashes back to a sterile white room, where he seems to be hooked up to machinery. Then, he realizes two things: he's actually popping in and out of an alternate reality where people will think he's crazy if he says anything, and all of the Bibles he can find don't include the New Testament. And the child in the alternate reality? His name is Eli, and he is just starting to prove to one and all that he is the Son of God. Myers (Blood of Heaven) seems to start out in circles but sets up a thought-provoking plot revolving around a simple question: What if Jesus came now for the first time? With this thrilling and ominous tale, Myers continues to shine brightly in speculative fiction based on biblical truths. Highly recommended.

Amazing book. I really loved it. It takes a different look at what if Jesus came today, and that gives an inspirational spin for all Christians.

I enjoyed the story, expecially the paralell universe aspect in addition to the modern day Christ figure.

I couldn't stop reading this book! The whole idea of parallel worlds & Jesus coming today is a really facinating idea. I really like the way this writer thinks!

A fiery car crash hurls TV journalist Conrad Davis into another world exactly like ours esxcept for one detail -- Jesus Christ did not come 2000 years ago, but today.
