Reviews - What do customers think about The Warning (Reluctant Prophet Series #1)?
An Exciting Novel Apr 1, 2007
'The Warning' is a fast paced suspense novel.
It revolves around Buddy Korda who is a nondescript assistant bank manager in a small town. He is chosen by God as a modern day prophet to warn about a looming economic disaster. After thousands of people start listening to him and taking his financial advice, some financial power players do everything in their power to discredit and attack him.
Mr. Bunn has some very descriptive writing. In describing some of the financial sharks in New York, he writes the following:
"The mountains of Wall Street were home to their own brand of trolls. Only here they were dressed by Valentino, driven by Porsche, fueled by liters of caffeine. They hoarded their gold and guarded it with bloodthirsty vengeance. They substituted handheld faxes and satellite links for broadaxes, but they were trolls just the same. They even had their own language. Sunlight scared them. Fresh air was as alien as a moral code."
As readers of this review can tell, Mr. Bunn certainly has a way with words. His story in interesting, creative, and thought provoking. I recommend this book.
An Incredible Read Jan 10, 2003
My first experience with this author was with the Book of Hours. After thoroughly enjoying that book, I perused the church library for another one of Mr. Bunn's offerings.
The Warning, was possibly one of the best books I have read in quite a while. An average Joe, named Buddy Korda, is chosen by God to spread the word about the eminent collapse of the financial markets.
Who will listen to this assistant bank branch manager? At first, very few. But as the story progresses, we see that the Spirit of GOD gets the message out to His flock. While those that are from the Wall Street elite try to set him up, harm him, and make continued threats.
This book is an awesome story of how God chooses people of humble standing so that the message is the focus and not the messenger. Also, no one can stand against the ultimate will of our Creator.
Mr. Bunn's expertise in international banking is evident throughout the book.
Spell Binding Jun 10, 2000
This book was riveting with suspense and intrigue. I especially enjoyed the author's knowledge of the financial arena and the spiritual insight into the Bible and how God has worked in the past. I immediately read the follow up book, "The Ultimatum"
relevant Jun 8, 2000
This book is a must read for Christians at this turn of the century. The inspiration to follow God's leading in all that he has for us to do and trust Him to provide the strength is the main theme. The exortation to live within our means and be satisfied with what the Lord has blessed us with is the underlying theme. The writing, as always with Bunn, is gripping, hard to put down. I am ignorant of financial jargon, but Bunn even made this part of the book relatively easy to understand. I am a big fan of T. Davis Bunn and this book was up to his usual high standards.
A Great Story of God's Provision Apr 7, 2000
"The Warning" is a fictitious account of a looming economic disaster. God instructs banker Buddy Korda to warn his people of the coming crisis through a series of dreams. Buddy knows that the economy is strong, and the stock market has never seen such high daily closings (sounds very familiar). Will Buddy overcome his doubts and fears to warn God's people?
