Rarely do see we stories written about God, and even less about His creation. Too frequently, we limit the first verse of the Bible to what happened here on earth. However, the verse could easily read: “In the beginning God created Heaven and (fill in the blank).” We forget that God is infinitely more capable of creating every what-if scenario that men can only imagine and write about. However, God can make any scenario real.
In the movie Contact, the character played by Jodie Foster says, “The universe is a pretty big place. If it’s just us, seems like an awful waste of space.” The author of those words was Carl Sagan. I do not think he would have thought that way if he had seriously considered the themes in C. S. Lewis’ Space Trilogy.
C. S. Lewis wrote his Space Trilogy about God quarantining his creations from each other in the existing solar system. What I do in this fictional novel is show how three of his creations work, in different parts of the universe, against a fourth to bring about God’s will of saving the remnant from each and giving them the opportunity to experience his redemption.
Therefore, the overarching purpose of this novel was to expand Lewis’ idea of the universe as a whole, and show how each creation stood in the presence of God and how, through God’s sovereignty, His will is done among these different creations.
