|The Genesis Key by James Barney|
"Every myth has some foundation in truth."
Have you heard of the INDY gene? It is a gene that scientists discovered about ten years ago in fruit flies that can be manipulated to double or triple their life spans. This is real science mind you, not fiction. “INDY” stands for “I’m Not Dead Yet,” from "`Monty Python and the Holy Grail." Yes, scientists do have a sense of humor. In Genesis 6:1-4, it explains that Man’s “days shall be a hundred and twenty years.” Only one person in modern history has ever lived longer than 120 years: Ms. Jeanne Calment of France, who died in 1997 at the age of 122. At the same time, advances in medicine and genetic research will surely push the upper end of life expectancy past 120 years in the coming decades. Does this portend an imminent collision course with Genesis 6:1-4?
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR - Steve Berry reviewed the new techno-thriller novel from James Barney, and was generous in praising it:
"‘The Genesis Key’ is a solid blend of science, myth, history and suspense. It’s remarkable and unconventional, which together make for a great tale. There’s an intense brand of storytelling here, utilizing all the elements I love. I can’t wait for more from James Barney."
