Joseph Wailes has an immense love for scripture, and the Lord of scripture, and a deep longing to realize what it was like to be a participant in the real historic events of God recorded in the Bible. 

Joseph's tales, his scripture-based-fiction, will stretch your imagination and perhaps open your eyes to the possibilities and implications of the Bible stories that inspire us and call us to faith.

FOREWORD

THINKING OUTSIDE THE ORTHO-BOX

     Many of us grow up very blessed, indeed, to have Christian parents, who teach us the things of the Lord. If they are sincere about it, they also live it out faithfully, year after year. We have a definite head start on the pathway to find Jesus. I was taught to read at an early age, and loved to read the Word of God. Also, among my favorites were Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous stories of Sherlock Holmes. I developed a taste for adventure stories, too, like the tales of King Arthur, and J.R.R. Tolkien’s books about Middle Earth, as well as works by C.S. Lewis. I had a keen interest in science, and also science fiction. I was taught to follow the evidence, but be led by faith. As the scripture reads, “Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!” Ronald Reagan also said something about, “trust, but verify.”

     My various experiences throughout life have proven to me, beyond reasonable doubt, that the Word of God is absolutely true, and the Name of God is absolutely Holy, and the Spirit of God is absolute power. One of the purposes of this book is to spark some curiosity on the part of the reader, to perhaps even motivate someone to actually open their Bibles, and see if any of these notions have any validity. If you find errors, well, please understand, I did my best to check all the cross references, connections, and interwoven threads which I was honored to be allowed to follow through scripture, from Genesis, to Revelation. Any errors you find are honest mistakes, or misunderstandings, on my part, so do not blame God, if I wrote it down wrong.

     I hope you will approach these ideas with an open mind, and at least consider if such things might actually be the case in reality, seen, or unseen. This is not science-fiction, or sci-fi. Rather, it is scripture-based-fiction, maybe call it scri-fi? As I suggested, if you think my idea is all wrong, look all of the elements up in your Bible, and see for yourself. Stop taking someone else’s interpretation of the Word of God as though it is Gospel, unless you read it for yourself, and find out what it really says. Pray about it, and our Lord will help you understand some of it, but not all. Nobody but Jesus understands the whole Bible.
