I'm not talking about Hollywood stars, but stars, as in new planets. Peter Leigh is given the opportunity of a lifetime. Go into space and preach the gospel of Jesus to a race of aliens living on the far away planet of Oasis. He'll be gone for 5 years (yes, I know, queue Star Trek theme music), leaving behind his beloved wife Bea and their cat Joshua.
Peter faces almost no opposition on Oasis to his preaching. The native inhabitants are eager to learn more about Jesus from "The Book of Strange New Things." While Bea, back on earth, is facing a myriad of crises.
I loved listening to this on audiobook. The reader was fantastic and it was so much fun to hear the pronunciation of the all the alien words and names. I will confess that I loved it so much that I had to check out a physical copy so that I could continue "reading" it when I got out of my car.
