Demonstrate your superiority! This novel is by one of those simple-minded Christians. A wily sceptic like yourself should have no trouble understanding the work of a simple-minded man. Read if you dare. Test your understanding against the descriptions found here at www.MirrorCovenant.com so you can be sure you caught the author's intent. Read and refute!

Transapparent follows people lost upon the flat Earth of human wisdom to their encounter with Jesus alive in all dimensions. These layers speak in lyrics as well as prose. Though He accepts the simple, God is not simple.

"Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves." Matthew 10:16

Transapparent blends the stories of several characters seeking fulfillment. Their interior journeys map the hidden shapes of their souls. If you like to think then you owe yourself the chance to journey with them. It may be that their relationships with God will illuminate your own relationship with the Lord of Creation.

It was an age when everything was known but nothing understood. Choices multiplied; decisions withered. Roadblocks were shattered but the maps were burned. In such an age, our own, the traveler found it easy to move but hard to arrive. In such an age, our own, truth was worshiped yet denied. This is the story of a search for the foundation in a land where all bedrock had been pounded into sand. This is the story of a restoration.

The 6th Edition became available as a paperback in 2019.

"Bildungsroman" - A novel about the formation/education/development of its protagonist. Examples include Goetheís Wilhelm Meisterís Apprenticeship and Dickens' David Copperfield.
