Time Assignment

By Nancy Elizabeth Casady


A seam in time has started to unravel.

Dr. Paul Edwards, an archaeology professor at Oxford University, has been on many interesting adventures, but none have filled his longing for significance. While returning from Dubai, he is reunited with an old family friend who reminds him of the life he turned his back on long ago. “I think we were meant to meet today,” his friend says. A business agreement causes their paths to cross again and leads Paul toward the Sahara Desert, a stranded woman, and what appears to be the most significant archaeological find of the millennium.

Malak, a being not bound by time, must enter the realm of the earth-dwellers. He and his highly skilled team have been charged with the most critical of missions: “Find my connection into time…and bring him home.” It’s Malak’s most challenging time assignment ever. It will ultimately lead him to Dr. Paul Edwards.

But will Paul’s life be changed by the supposedly “random” meetings with people and his startling discoveries? Will his heart be moved by the extraordinary glimpses of time-weaving? Or will his human need for love finally penetrate his distracted heart?

A riveting journey through the woven threads of time,human choice, and eternal purposes

Book Takeaway:

God is working in and around is all the time. Our limited perception of how our circumstances may interact with God's plans often blind us to the potential purposes we and those around us might have. We are invited to participate in a great adventure!

Why the author wrote this book:

The writing of this book was attempted because of the author's love of telling and hearing stories of Christian testimony as well as her love of science fiction.
Reading fiction also played a huge part in her coming to faith in Jesus. She grew up going to church and doing the 'look good' religion. She had no idea about what the Bible actually taught, it was described as merely a book of stories. She liked the stories but didn't understand their eternal, supernatural, scientific, God-centered meaning. So after high school and six months of nannying she worked in a Christian bookstore that some family friends owned. She had gone to church growing up so considered herself a Christian. But she was not prepared for what these people were truly about and why they wanted to run this bookstore. They sold all these books, resources and music that were about a relationship with our Creator not defined by a church or a group of people. She witnessed in these people a daily devotion to this God of the Bible that was not for any kind of attention or as part of a church requirement. They just loved to read the Bible and share what they found with each other and others. It didn't matter whether they went to the same church or not! At the same time she was also seeing some scary spiritual activity and reading fictional books about how the spiritual world might work, angels and demons fighting and humans praying. The books are called 'this Present Darkness' and 'the Piercing of the Darkness' by Frank Peretti. Having always disliked Halloween and scary movies, she quickly recognized that she did not have protection from the darkness she'd always feared. What got her attention was reading the fictional story about how things we can't see 'might' look extrapolating some truths from scripture and then seeing how things really do look when the unseen forces are working! No one had to convince her that there is a spiritual realm. She'd seen and heard it. Then the people who owned the bookstore did the same thing the people in the books did. They read the Bible and prayed and the dark spiritual forces were silenced. Nancy then prayed the prayer that one of the characters in the book prayed and asked Jesus to be in charge of her life, protect her from the evil forces she saw all around her, and fill her up with His purposes.
