A cranky, atheistic philosophy professor loves to shred the faith of incoming freshmen. He is chosen by a group of scientists to create a philosophy for a computer-generated world exactly like ours. Much to his frustration, every model he introduces - from Darwinism, to Existentialism, to Relativism, to Buddhism - fails. The only way to preserve the computer world is to introduce laws from outside their system through a Law Giver. Of course this goes against everything he's ever believed, and he hates it. But even that doesn't completely work because the citizens of that world become legalists and completely miss the spirit behind the Law.

The only way to save them is to create a computer character like himself to personally live and explain it. He does. So now there are two of him - the one in our world and the one in the computer world. Unfortunately, a rival has introduced a virus into the computer world. Things grow worse until our computer-world professor sees the only way to save his world is to personally absorb the virus and the penalty for breaking the Law. Of course, it's clear to all, including our real-world professor, that this act of selfless love has become a reenactment of the Gospel. It is the only possible choice to save their computer world and, as he finally understands, our own.

    " Nicholas is an anti-religion professor who would outdebate the best of them. He sees religion as the downfall of man, until his brother Travis presents him with a complex computer program. In the program he has created a whole world and the main character in the program is called Alpha designed after Nicholas's dead son. In the program they try to create a world where people would survive without the confines of religion, however they soon discover that no matter what they try the world destroys itself. They realize that they need to give the people in this program laws, yet they find that the laws in itself is not enough for the people become legalistic and cruel. Travis, Nicholas's brother comes up with the idea to insert an exact replica of Nicholas into the program in order to explain to the people the real reason for the laws, to try to save them. This story puts into perspective what God did for us, giving us His son to save us from the law that could not save us. I thought the book was great, however I would have liked to see a little more conflict with Nicholas, more of his logical side. Still it was a great read, although I would have liked a little stronger ending. "

    " Fairly gripping allegory. If you've read Myers' "Eli" this is in the same vein. Something like this might even be good material for a small group discussion. "

    " Though-provoking and creative. Will be thinking about this story for a while. A little predictable toward the end for those who know the gospel story well. "

    " Highly thought provoking. A real page turner. Myers back in his stride. A bit corny, lots of plot holes. "
