About the Book

Once Upon Unmeasured Time revisits a time in human history when no one had a clock, no one had a calendar, and no one had a watch! The storyline follows the first timekeepers on their journey into measured time. The struggle to solve the timekeeping riddle provides a fascinating prequel to the opening words of the Hebrew Bible.

When seen through the eyes of a child, Genesis 1 holds a key to some of humanity’s deepest spiritual lessons. What can be gained by considering the story behind the story of creation? What may have led to the writing of Genesis 1? Will the words “let there be light” take on new meaning as children are encouraged to color the story of creation? Why did God ask humans to see the green plants as food? Did the ancient biblical writers understand a deep spiritual secret about purple light that has been lost over time?
