A mysterious Nazi super-weapon, hidden for more than 60 years, has been discovered by members of a reclusive, private think tank and perfected using modern technology. This fully realized and reliable device is so powerful, so provocative, that the basic beliefs of science, history, and religion could be overturned in an instant.

After a cataclysmic system failure kills an expedition attempting to return to the year 100,000 B.C., a team of skeptical scientists and adventurers is dispatched to the

Two Roads Corporation has been busy. They’ve discovered a way to transport people back in time. But an expedition to 100,000 BC ended in disaster as if such a time never existed.

This leads Two Roads to believe that everything modern-day science believes about how old the earth is could be mistaken. The company plans to send another team to a time period that might answer some of their questions. The team is recruited and sent to 2300 BC, the time of Noah’s Ark and the great flood. What they disc

This is not a book that I would normally read, but I am so glad that I did read it! Wow! When you read about the book, you think, oh man...a science fiction styled book. But it's so much more than that. The author blends Christians and their beliefs with non christian's and their beliefs in such a way that you would think you were sitting in on an actual conversation.

As I sat reading this book, I realized there are many aspects to this novel: it's thrilling, it's realistic, it's full of Godly h

This was a fun book, but the setup felt rushed, and the inclusion of a terrorist plot felt tacked on and unnecessary. That particular plot added absolutely nothing to the story.

Wayback is about time travel based on Nazi experiments. A US research company working with the US military going back in time to see the Biblical Flood because missions to way back before Genesis didn't work. The initial setup, with the scientists being recruited, having the mission explained to them, and the secular sci

I'm always interested in reading and promoting novels that skillfully integrate a scientific, Biblical view of the Flood into their story, so I agreed when the author asked me to take a look at this novel for possible review. I agree with the others that the writing was, overall, very good and the story was exciting.

I had one main concern, though. Sam Batterman uses the hydroplate tectonics model in the novel, which would create a catastrophic, world-wide Flood that would remake the face of the

Wayback is a creationist science fiction novel dealing with time travel as it relates to a young earth. The scientists sending objects and people back in time have discovered that they cannot send anything back farther than around 10,000 B.C. The book then goes on to deal without the flood and verifying events of the Genesis account and especially the flood.[return][return]This book is a good what if from a creationist perspective and gives some helpful ideas to point out how the old earth peopl ...more

Wayback is a fun novel that I enjoyed from beginning to end. I love the way it reads—like a Michael Crichton thriller, both educating the reader and challenging him to think outside the box. In fact, I would say it has a more wide-open worldview than most Crichton novels, since it allows for both the secular approach and that of a reasoned faith.

Nazi experiments? Time travel to the time of Noah? Why not! Wayback has a cool premise, and the story itself is executed nearly flawlessly—again remini

This book is about a team of modern scientists who journey back in time to see if the Biblical account of Noah's ark actually happened. They meet with a few serious complications along the way, and it gets really interesting!

I enjoyed this book and the "ride" carried me through it pretty quickly. That's always a good thing.

This book had major formatting problems throughout my Kindle download. There were lots and lots of end-of-the-line hyphenations that had somehow been kicked into the middle of

This was a fun book to read and fleshed out with biblical speculation what the pre-flood world would have possibly looked like. Batterman's writing was good, not great, but good. It seemed a little wooden at times, but he kept my interest to the point that I read it in one sitting last night. Time travel and biblical creationism; an interesting combination. Look forward to seeing more development from Batterman if he continues as an author.
