Pursued To Eternity {Book Review}

I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.


I am always looking for a good book to read, so welcomed the opportunity to review Pursued To Eternity by John Riley.

I received a paperback copy of the 150-page book. Each chapter features a single sketch-style illustration representing the topic within the chapter. The book combines three fascinating stories that intertwine fiction with biblical truth. Scripture quotes and easy to understand explanations are provided to highlight key truths.


Two of the tales span the bounds of time to tell of historical life. Specifically how ancient man lived and hunted in 2200 BC. The second story jumps to the time of Exodus and tells of the life of an Ancient Egyptian family. The perspective was fascinating as it told of the compassion the family had toward the Hebrew slaves and their efforts to secretly help them.

The ancient stories are brought to modern times when two brothers discover artifacts from each historical account. One brother, Connor Bridges, is a biology teacher and devout Christian. The other brother, Dr. Alan Bridges, is an atheist who puts his faith in science.

When Connor’s public school students take on an after-school project challenging evolutionary indoctrination, he finds himself without a job. He goes to work for his brother, in Kenya, where they discover amazing artifacts drawn from each of the historical stories. The discoveries challenge Alan’s atheistic resolve.

This book is truly captivating. Students will be encouraged to consider ancient life and the untold stories behind historical artifacts. The book further reflects God’s great desire that no man should perish, but all would come to repentance.

Author John Riley also has a course Apologetics: Creation vs. Evolution available at SchoolhouseTeachers.com.


We have thoroughly enjoyed reading Pursued To Eternity. I would highly recommend it for middle and high school students, as well as adults. Click on the image below to see how others from the review crew enjoyed this book.
