Thank God for The Promised Land! Oct 14, 2005
Here is a book that has many pegs on which to hang Biblical principles. Not only is it an exciting read but it is a great teaching tool. I like the way one character finds his way into all three books written by Randall Arthur. Well done!
Jordan's Crossing Sep 5, 2005
I loved this book. Jordan's Crossing was one of those that you read late in the night to find out what happens. It is really a great book. Randall Arthur is becoming my favorite!
A deeply faithful and reverant book Dec 6, 2004
Written by a missionary who served in Europe for twenty-two years, Jordan's Crossing is a novel about an avowed liberal led astray first by greed, then when his young son is murdered, by thoughts of revenge and dealing out "justice" with his own hands. Hatred and revenge control him, driving him to destroy his own family as surely as his son's killers, and only a divine miracle can stop him. Jordan's Crossing is written with a passion for God and trust in His guidance, and reverberates with conservative Christian hope and morals. A deeply faithful and reverant book.
Still amazing Aug 12, 2004
I have read few authors that gripped me the way Randall Arthur has in his three stories (Brotherhood of Betrayal, Jordan's Crossing, and Wisdom Hunter). I could not put any of them down and lost a lot of sleep the week I read them. I cried and laughed and prayed my way through each of them. Randall, if you're reading this, thank you for letting God write through you. Though it has a been a good six months since I read them I am tearing up as I remember then now and how God used them in my life. Thank you for being honest about the good and the bad in the "church" and our lives, and about God's grace and His presence through both. I truly thank God for you, brother, I really do.
Not as good as the first one... Aug 15, 2003
I heartily recommend "Wisdom Hunter" in place of this book. Perhaps because W.H. was exactly what I needed to hear and the fact that J.Faircloth was in a similar position I was in. I was captivated by how much that book spoke to me. As for J.Crossing, I'm not saying it was a poor novel - it might be what W.Hunter was for me, as J.Crossing will be for you. God might speak to you in a different way than He did for me through this novel.
I would recommend Wisdom Hunter if you are: under legalism I would recommend Jordan's Crossing if you are: ....??? Questionning faith, the Bible, God?
