This book has changed my life! Jan 28, 2007
Honestly, I just loved this book. At times, it was tough to read because it was so realistic- and sometimes, real life is hard to take. But I was transformed while reading this. My own prayer life has changed. The way I view my life in relation to those around me- changed too! Parker has done an incredible job of taking the reader to the edge (hence the name, I guess) and letting them know the impact that one life, one decision can make- good or bad. I highly recommend this book to folks who might not think spiritual warfare is for real- it'll open your eyes. And maybe while being entertained, your life can be transformed, too!
Thought Provoking, Powerful Dec 30, 2005
This is really two stories in one. It is very good and well worth reading.
The author uses the same basic story with two very different endings that are based upon the actions, including prayer, of the protagonist, Richard Sullivan.
It shows a very powerful picture of how an individual can be affected by spiritual warfare and can have a major effect on the lives of others through prayer and other actions. It does this while portraying a very realistic picture of the struggles faced by everone, including Christians, on a day to day basis.
Although the author may not be quite as polished as Frank Peretti, he is very good and writes in a similar way.
I would strongly recommend this book to anyone and particularly to Christians.
Real Time Effect: Timeless Nov 21, 2005
Though this story was published over 12 years ago, the articulation of Parker Hudson reads true to everyday life. Simply, I had to know the outcome of each character's choice to get a sense that the right thing would be done. Parker Hudson`s vivid depiction of one`s bout with varying levels of confusion provides a scope into the belly of spiritual warfare. "On the Edge" tells a truth about one's struggle with acting on seeds of destruction or bearing good fruit from planting seeds (thoughts, words or action) that promote life by experiencing joy and peace here on earth as God prefers, until final judgment. I too was brought to tears feeling witnessed to the magnitude and glory of a mass prayer outreach. Mrs. Hudson, `Thank You' for your insight with supporting your husband on this project as a demonstrated witness in the power of God's love to change/restore one to walk in his image. There are many who operate on the `edge' that desperately need the results of a powerful committed prayer team. Functioning as a wife, I long/pray for this spiritual order to blanket my home and community. Like a glass of pure ice-cold water, most refreshing is communicating with one who "gets it." An understanding that this a intimate portrayal concisely reveals the wages of sin... "On the Edge" should immediately be brought to DVD syndication, delivering a global impact to those who may not utilize this medium, so all can be blessed by this ministry. `Thank You' for the healing...:)
A GREAT book! Jan 13, 2005
I loved this book! I thought it painted an amazing picture of how individuals affect people around them by their choices, actions, words, and prayers. I have chosen this book for my book club and I think our discussion group will be dynamic and interesting! This book is well written and very thought provoking. You will not think the same way after reading it! I loved it and I think it's a must read!
Changed my life Jun 15, 2004
I could not put the book down. I travel for my job and read it on one trip. I felt such a connection to Richard Sullivan. I never understood those voices in my head. I always thought it was my mind putting those thoughts into my head. I finally understand that Satan was making me doubt myself, as well as, other negative thoughts. He was tearing down my self-esteem one piece at a time.
I loved the book so much that I shared it with family, friends, and complete strangers I met on airplanes. I mailed the book to strangers I had met with the hopes that they too will find answers to questions about our journey through this earthly life and how every choice we make affects the lives of hundreds of people.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a Christian book you cannot put down until the last page is read.
