Breaking Time | Book 1
You can have whatever you want. Under one condition.
Laurel Martin and Jig Klein have nothing in common other than a smooth-talking abductor offering an enticing reward for their cooperation. The mysterious kidnapper claims to have mastered time travel, and they are free to use it to fulfill their deepest desires…if they first step 2,000 years into the past, kill the young Jesus Christ and forever wipe Christianity from the pages of history.
Friends and family launch a desperate search for the missing pair. They uncover a puzzle of ruthlessly executed technology, dark family secrets and a violent, shadowy cult seduced by an ancient evil. An evil that will stop at nothing to reshape eternity to its liking.
“Brent has crafted a story that had me on the edge of my seat from the get-go! Fascinating twists and turns like nothing I’ve read before. Nothing short of brilliant!”

Brent R. Baker
Brent loves the tension between science and faith, and exploring what that means through adventurous stories of the possible and highly unlikely. He often finds that storytelling paints vivid pictures of deeper truths: stories about real-life occurrences, crazy tales of fiction or parables that resonate with some and confuse others.
Jesus told stories all the time. Why? They work! In two decades as an award-winning small town journalist Brent discovered that truth is indeed stranger than fiction. When not helping others tell their stories, he finds that controlling the fate of imaginary universes is less bizarre and more fulfilling than reporting on the real one.
Brent also finds joy in helping others tell their stories and has edited and ghost-written books across multiple genres.
When not writing or editing, he dodges wildfires and blizzards with his wife Kim and their living Muppet-dog Paige Turner at home in the mountains of central Washington State.
They never thought any one would act on their theories! No one was more astonished than they when what they’d been talking of for years suddenly took on reality.
– C.S. Lewis, tHAT HIDEOUS STRENGTH
