The Dream Train

by Terry Tramel

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
What begins as a simple dream escalates into a fascinating journey aboard the Ecclesia Express, a train like no other that transports passengers to Calvary and then ultimately to the Shining City. This contemporary narrative in the spirit of Pilgrim's Progress captures one person's quest in first coming to faith in The Prince and then continuing to the promised homeland to come. The unique feature of this story is the fellow passengers on board. It is likely that many readers will recognize some of them for they are the composers of hymns and spiritual songs that have inspired generations of believers. The wonder of this work is that it may not be a dream at all.
Journey to Heaven with the Great Hymn Writers of the Faith! If you love the old hymns of the Church, get ready for the ride of a lifetime aboard "The Dream Train." The fellow passengers on this trip are the composers of those beloved songs that have inspired generations. The dialogue they speak is exclusively the lyrics and titles of their classic hymns – over 300 in number. In the spirit of "Pilgrim's Progress," this innovative journey first leads to Calvary and then ultimately to the Shining City. Many who take this trip find themselves singing through the pages, often with tear-stained eyes. One reader said, "It's like a revival in a book." "The Dream Train" brings precious memories to the mind and inspiring hope to the soul. This captivating book is truly theology set to music. While the entire story is a dream sequence, the wonder of this imaginative work is that it may not be a dream at all.
