Product Description

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 BC, a team of skeptical scientists and adventurers is dispatched to the Antediluvian world, a world that no one anticipated full of wonder, danger and advanced civilizations that will rock the accepted theories of science and history to their core. However, the team is unaware of another plan that is unfolding; there are people who will kill to use this remarkable machine to further their own plans for our past and future.

    This is a fun book. Author Batterman did a good job for his first novel. He had some very interesting ideas to be fleshed out and he did a good job. You can tell he really had a mission in this plot to prove that the earth is only as old as the Bible literally says it isthe young earth idea. At times, he was a little too forceful in expressing itas if he was determined to make the reader believe his ideas. But that was acceptable because of the creative way he expressed it. And I loved the twist ending. Originally the characters went back in time to the time of Noah and you expect that they will just return to their original time. But then he creatively arranges for them to go forward in time but to an even different time period that brings an interesting wrinkle into the relationships among the characters. I was kept interested in the story throughout and enjoyed the characters and the descriptions of the settings. Regardless of whether you're convinced about the earth being young, it does give you something to think about and you have a fun time enjoying the plot. I trust Mr. Batterman has good things up his sleeve for future books.

    "Wayback" starts out strong, with an engaging premise, good science, fascinating historical speculation and a well-defined Christian worldview. The author's style is a bit redundant, but has unmistakable potential. However, the book as a whole falls flat by the time the reader reaches the ending. I was surprised and disappointed to find that the author's Zionistic bias led him to include serious ethical fallacies in the time-travel plot. The characters are willing to sacrifice their lives to prevent history from being changed to suit Islamic goals, but are equally willing to change history for their own ends. If we believe God is in control of history, then changing it would seem to be wrong for any reason. Though I believe Sam Batterman has great potential and wish him well in his career, I would not recommend this book.

    I adore books that present theories of Intelligent Design and Creationism. Men and women willing to stand up against the proof that Evolutionists claim is so absolute are brave. I think the public should view science like a jury views a man on trial. Unless it can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, it is not fact. And as of right now, no scientist can prove how the world came to be beyond a reasonable doubt.This book was a joy to read. It starts out with the gripping premise of time travel and takes us to earth, 2300 BC, before the flood. I enjoyed reading what earth might have been like and experiencing how things might have happened. This is a book I will keep around for my kids to read as they get older, to keep their minds open. This book has some great characters from all spectrums of scientific beliefs, which brought great conflict to the story. I liked the antediluvian city and people. I liked that they were advanced and that the Garden of Eden was still there. There were so many interesting ideas presented here. It was so interesting.The book shifted characters a lot. I prefer a few main characters to follow that I can really grow to care about. Also, the first few chapters simply explained how everything worked. I supposed that was necessary, but it slowed down the story in the same way Michael Crichtons scientific descriptions tend to go on and on. So if you loved that about Crichton, youll love that about Batterman. Once the team went back in time, I was hooked. I recommend this book for anyone looking to open their mind to a Biblical view of creation and the flood. It was well-written, well-researched educational entertainment. Very fun.

    This is an awesome book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. The story is riveting, the characters are real and the author is able to keep more than one story line going without it being confusing. The description of the flood was thought provoking. It would be a great book to give to someone who doesn't believe in the worldwide Flood and an unsaved person. I look forward to another book by Mr. Batterman.

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm a software engineer working for Microsoft Corporation. I live with my wife, Susan, and two children, Samantha and Parker in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Wayback is my first novel, but there will be many more.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I've always been fascinated with the Antediluvian age. What technology did they have? How advanced were they? What was it like to live hundreds and hundreds of years? What would the Ark have been like? Most of all, what must the Flood have been like to impact the planet we now see from the very different world that was created. This book allowed me to investigate all of these questions in a fast paced narrative.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  In writing Wayback, I have gained a whole new appreciation for not only how God created the Earth and the Heavens, but the most important question that can be asked…why He did it. The Flood as described by the Bible is not a simple rainstorm and it’s not a localized river overflowing its banks. It is the single event that destroyed the early earth and set the conditions for the world we find ourselves in now. The world before the Flood still had vestiges of the perfect haven that God created. The Garden of Eden was still there, but it was guarded and inaccessible. What was that world like? This is the mental journey I hope that readers will travel with me when they read this book.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  Writing a book about Genesis and the Flood makes you “go there” mentally. What must this world have been like? It’s my opinion that all the flannel graph, coloring pages and other ways we present the Antediluvian world to children in VBS and children’s church may not be very effective in communicating the many important truths of Genesis and may actually hurt the overall message of the early earth. The Ark is not some small, cramped craft that is barely seaworthy with silly giraffes and elephants sticking their heads out of portholes. The technology needed to build and design this craft proves that men were not “cavemen” and simpleton, hunter-gatherers. There was a lot more going on at this time-mankind was far more advanced than we ever give them credit for. Still with all the advances, the longevity and man’s fall swirled together to make a world that was exceptionally dangerous and wicked, what could this civilization’s trespasses be that would warrant God drowning the entire earth.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I enjoy Michael Crichton’s novels immensely. I think he was a huge influence on my own work – his ability to take something that is complicated from a scientific perspective (or even historically) and break it down and make it entertaining is something that I aim to do in my novels. I also enjoy Tom Clancy, Clive Cussler and Robert Ludlum’s work. Finally, the Bible is my authoritative source. It is incredibly rich and layered. I can read a chapter over and over again and get more and more from it. It’s amazing that God gave us this guidebook on how to live and preserved its meaning over the centuries. It’s as relevant and important as it was a thousand years ago.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I'm currently working on the sequel to Wayback and also a number of other projects. Visit my author website to track the progress of these and other projects.
