Descripción

"ONE LIKE US-the epic saga of two women, the men who love them, and the voices that beckon from another star. This is the story of their response to a God who calls us by name, and the forces at work to drown that call. It is a tale of desperation and hope, of proud shame and naked innocence; a prescription for wounded love. Join the crew of Star Covenant. Meet Elon, the great prophet and explorer. Let him take you all the way-back to the beginning! Take the plunge into the abyss of undiscovered bliss!" This book has 436 + 16 pages. The author has SIGNED the title page twice. Once as a SIGNED AND DATED copy and the other as a SIGNED PRESENTATION copy. N° de ref. de la librería 041763

Sinopsis:

Though this is J. L. German's first published novel, it is certainly not his first story. The books fluid style, flesh and blood characters, and gripping plot attest to a lifetime of story telling. The author's fascination with the work of John Paul II (i.e. The Theology of the Body), indeed, his enthusiasm for life, is evident from cover to cover of this spiritual epic. Though the book could be accurately termed science fiction, by nature of the fact that it is a futuristic tale, its similarity with much of the rest of the genre ends there.

Set early in the 22nd century, the reader enters a world timidly perched on the threshold of star travel, a world beckoned by a recently discovered radio signal from the Alpha Centauri system. As Earth gears up for its first star voyage, the speculation begins. Are the inhabitants of this distant world humanoid? Is their world a paradise, or are they a fallen race? What kind of civilization grows up in paradise? What would an innocent race gain by developing radio technology? And what would they make of us? Of clothing? Of weapons? Of greed and lust? And, if they are fallen, did Christ die to save them as well? Is the Church's mission interplanetary? Interstellar? Galactic?

German juggles these questions via unforgettable characters cast in extraordinary circumstance--an unprecedented crossroad. If sci fi and Christian dogma do not seem an odd mix, add the fact that very little sci fi has a woman as its main character. One Like Us bridges the sci fi gender gap with the ordinary but extraordinary, humble but bold, Veronica Weslin, who brings beauty and romance to an often too techy, too horror-driven genre. But don't worry guys; this is rounded-out sci fi, not watered-down. German's inventive bent lends gritty, fig-leafless detail to the intrigue and adventure that make it a page turner from cover to cover.

About the Author:

Novelist J. L. German currently resides in Wisconsin, but the North Dakota native spent most of his life in the flat, windy valley of the Red River of the North. Self-described as a thinker and a tinker, he is a husband, father, and grandfather whose broad range of interests has fueled an eclectic career that features stints as a farmhand, musician, piano tuner, tool maker, machine designer, ballroom owner, and engineer, to name a few. In his leisure he enjoys reading, composing, painting (see cover art), swing dancing, and inventing.
