    The Book of Strange New Things

    Peter is a man of God who is called to embark on an important mission—though it’s one that takes him light years away from his beloved wife, Bea. Peter accepts the position as resident pastor on a faraway planet, urged by USIC, the space station’s governing body, to reach out to the native population and convert them to Christianity. He becomes increasingly involved in the challenges of his new tasks, but when word comes from Bea about the horrific calamities affecting earth (typhoons and earthquakes among them), he is cleaved in two, torn between his commitment to his job and to God and his all-consuming devotion to his wife. A thought-provoking love story set in a galaxy far, far away.
