The Experiment

Friday, July 31, 2015
For the Imager to actually like her, to take personal interest in her, when he was so awesome and powerful and stuff; well, if you asked her, it sounded like a lot of wishful thinking – a nice idea, but definitely fantasyland. Still, according to Listro Q, this was the other reason they’d come – to prove to her that it wasn’t fantasy.
So pack up yer bags;
Let’s get ready to shove
For Josh it’s the proof,
For you it’s the love.
Book:The Experiment (Book Two) (The Imager Chronicles)by Bill Myers, Bethany House Publishers, 1991

Genre: Fantasy
Target Audience: Boys and Girls 12-15
Subject: Scientific Evidence of God, Love, Sacrifice, Faith
Summary: It’s time for Josh to experience Fayrah for himself! Not one of Denise and Nathan’s stories of their trip convinced him that another world could exist. Nope. Josh believes in proof – scientific evidence. That is just what the visitors from Fayrah have come to give him too! A special machine has been designed to show Josh just how real The Imager is. Denise is glad Josh will finally have his proof. That’s what she wanted to have happen in another visit. However, the visitors have something special planned for her too. The unloved little girl is about to experience for herself how great her Creator’s love for her truly is.
Notes: The Experiment is the second in the series known under three names: Journeys to Fayrah, The Bloodstone Chronicles and The Imager Chronicles. This series focuses on three characters who enter a fantasy world to learn about the love God (known in this world as The Imager) has for them. Each book focuses on one aspect of belonging to Him and trusting Him. This second book goes two different directions as The Imager presents lessons to each of the two characters. First of all it focuses on faith – believing in God’s existence. Josh has to be convinced through scientific and logical arguments that The Imager exists even though he can’t see Him. The second focus is how much love a creator has for its creation. Denise is allowed to create two life forms and interact with them and love them deeply. When they rebel she realizes that love will do anything – even lay down their own life – to save them. 
Recommendation Scale: 5/5

1 John 3:16 - This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.
