Item description for The Second Mission by L. D. Alford...

Overview
What events would humanity choose to observe in time? What singular events define the history of the world? Alan Fisher learned firsthand the objective of the second mission into time. He became an unwilling and accidental participant in a great experiment to record the words and death of Socrates-The Second Mission. Sophia was his reluctant guide. The second mission was hers, and she didn't want to share it with anyone. She trained ten years to become Sophia, a Greek woman of 399 b.c. For this one year of history, 400 to 399 b.c., neither Alan nor Sophia could return to their own times. They were linked together for better or worse in the second most important mission of humankind. Yet Alan Fisher, marooned in time, turned into Sophia's greatest hope of success, and because of the first mission, Sophia became Alan's greatest hope of spiritual deliverance. The first mission changed Sophia's world, and the second mission would also change the future of humanity. The Second Mission uniquely brings to life Socrates, Plato, and the School of Hellas. It provides a stimulating method to introduce and place into context the Socratic dialogues: Euthyphro, Cratylus, Crito, Phaedo, and The Apology of Socrates.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Second Mission?

Entertaining and informative  Apr 3, 2007
This is a highly entertaining read. It gives a fascinating account of Greek life and especially the oratories of Socrates. It fills in the history you wished you would have remembered from your high school studies! Interesting to read, a delightful novel!
 
Fun Sci Fi that also teaches  Oct 8, 2003
Great book for introducing philosophy and ancient Greek culture to folks who would not normally read about such topics. Alford's storyline and plot twists keep the reader interested throughout. Excellent for students. Looking forward to his next book!
 
Fantastic Time Travel Adventure  Oct 5, 2003
The Second Mission reveals the unintentional journey of a modern man, Alan Fisher, into time. He is an accidental and unwilling participant in humankind's second greatest adventure. Sophia, the actual time agent, became his reluctant guide. She had trained ten years to become Sophia, a Greek woman of 399 B.C. The second mission was her mission, and she did not want to share it with anyone. Now she was responsible for her mission as well as the survival of the interloper, Alan. They were linked together for better or worse in the second most important mission of mankind. For one year of history, 400 to 399 B.C., in the city-state of Athens in the place now called Greece, neither Alan nor Sophia could return to their own times.

Alan discovered the purpose of the second mission was observation and verification-to record the words and death of Socrates. This was the second most important historical research to future generations. Although Sophia would share little information about the future with Alan, he discovered the purpose of the first mission, and that information changed his life forever.

Alan Fisher, marooned in time, turned into Sophia's greatest hope for success and, because of the first mission, Sophia became Alan's greatest hope of spiritual deliverance. The first mission changed Sophia's world, and the second mission would also change the future of mankind.
