Religious Educator Dr. Tasha Chapman on 'An Alien's Quest'
This multifaceted quest story has no typical hero, goal, or plot. Instead, it pulls us into a universe of wondrous planets, witty aliens, and cross-cultural/species dilemmas. With winsome humor and scientific scrutiny, Neeper threads the story with the latest in quantum physics and astronomy, while also probing the deepest questions of theology. She draws the reader personally into this quest for big answers through her profoundly unique philosophical connections and whimsical language. Her delightful aliens include us in their very human pursuit of belonging, meaning, and adventure. Through our discoveries of their alien worlds and cultures, Neeper holds a mirror up to our humanness in all our glorious ruin. Though we are proved to be dreadful stewards of the Earth and capable of terrible evil, she gives us hope to persevere and even to laugh and marvel at ourselves.
