The Bishop’s Mission

Yes No What

The Bishop realized that sooner or later we’d be able to contact, and perhaps communicate with other civilizations throughout our Milky Way galaxy. His vision, his Mission, was for us to prepare for that time. If it turned out that we could actually communicate with aliens from other worlds, his burning question, “Are we alone?” would be answered with that first contact. But, that’s not all he wanted to know.

Follow this intriguing journey through the decades of debate and discovery the Mission demanded. From ecumenical views to space exploration technology, from the practical to the fanciful; Collins tells his tale with words that will evoke and provoke.

This is William Collins’ second book. His first, a collection of short stories, Conversation – Contemplation, Quick reads for busy people, encourages pondering and reflection. He developed his writing style and communication skills in the corporate atmosphere where clearly composed memos and correspondence ruled. He admits to writing fiction without any significant regard for effortless comprehension. Yet, his work flows breezily, and with easily imagined scenarios.
