the Thelián Sky: Beyond the Great Unknown
“The Christian Noob” Olvera
After struggling for decades with faith
and manic depression, Frank Olvera (b. 1971) finally decided to work on stories
that remained dormant in various notebooks and disks.He holds a degree in audio engineering and another in computer science. He has
also been involved in other fields such as education and journalism. He has
published several websites with information ranging from music to technologies
to wrestling to religion, for which he received several awards and recognition
from several entities in each of the different fields. He has also received
several awards for poetry.
As a science fiction writer, he has been heavily influenced by Doctor Who (BBC,
1963-1989, 1996, 2005-present), James Bond (MGM, 1962-present), Star Wars
Episode IV (20th Century Fox, 1977) and V (1980) and Star Trek (CBS Studios,
1966-1969) and TNG (1987-1994).
Growing up Catholic, he found many aspects that he did not understand or care
for in Catholicism. Hence he strayed for about thirteen years.
He finally returned to the Church in the fall of 2008 choosing a Presbyterian
church. Nowadays he neither considers myself Catholic anymore nor Presbyterian
for that matter – just Christian.
As everyone knows, God created mankind to his image (Genesis 01:27). What
mankind does not know is that God did not create man on Earth, but rather on
MARS! When Mars could not sustain life anymore, mankind had to escape the
planet and colonized Earth. Many years later, a study was written about the
survival of mankind in Sol Four (Mars) and its struggle in Sol Three (Earth).
We proved to be a species that has survived wars, slavery and other forms of
abuse — always holding on to our faith in God.
out of 5 stars. I will admit when I was first approached with the idea of this
book it offset me. I am not religious. However, this book combines religion,
science, and human nature and thought into a very lovely collection of stories
and tales. I found that I enjoyed hearing about how human kind still holds
principals so close to their heart. And it gave me hope for the future.
