The Methuselah Project by Rick Barry

Nazi scientists started many experiments. One never ended.

Roger Greene is a war hero. Raised in an orphanage, the only birthright he knows is the feeling that he was born to fly. Flying against the Axis Powers in World War II is everything he always dreamed--until the day he's shot down and lands in the hands of the enemy.

When Allied bombs destroy both his prison and the mad genius experimenting on POWs, Roger survives. Within hours, his wounds miraculously heal, thanks to those experiments. The Methuselah Project is a success--but this ace is still not free. Seventy years later, Roger hasn't aged a day, but he has nearly gone insane. This isn't Captain America--just a lousy existence only made passable by a newfound faith. The Bible provides the only reliable anchor for Roger's sanity and his soul. When he finally escapes, there's no angelic promise or personal prophecy of deliverance, just confusion. It's 2015--and the world has become an unrecognizable place.

Katherine Mueller--crack shot, genius, and real Southern Belle--offers to help him find his way home. Can he convince her of the truth of his crazy story? Can he continue to trust her when he finds out she works for the very organization he's trying to flee?

Thrown right into pulse-pounding action from the first page, readers will find themselves transported back in time to a believable, full-colored past, and then catapulted into the present once more. The historical back-and-forth adds a constantly moving element of suspense to keep readers on the edge of their seats.

My Review

I am not a fan of sci-fi, but the concept of this book intrigued me, and I am so glad that I read it. The book starts with all kind of war action, and as the blip in the back of the book explains, our hero Roger Greene is shot down. He has a remarkable survival rate even before the atrocious actions of the Nazis, the amazing way he lands his disabled plane, and then the lock up.
I can’t imagine being in a cell, no matter how nice for seventy years, no way, but he found a way to survive and keep his sanity. He also finds God, although he has always been there with him, he leans to acknowledge and lean on Him and it makes all the difference. I loved the people God puts in front of Roger, and how he makes it to the present.
I loved the fast pace of this book, the suspense and intrigue, there doesn’t seem to a dull moment, and the pages quickly fly. There is a bit of romance, and you will wonder whom he should trust, and hopefully he will be right. Don’t miss this book, it will really make you think, and be appalled and wonder if there are really Organizations like the Heritage that really exist, we can sure hope not.
I received this book from the Publisher Kregel, and was not required to give a positive review.
