Item description for Chronicles of the Hedge by Jeff Ovall...
Overview Approaching the eve of the third millennium, there was great anticipation for the future of mankind. Optimism flourished, humanity teetered on the edge of the old order, ready to explode into the new. Slowly, however, the darker side of human nature once again manifested itself. The quest for power became paramount to all else; territorial politics and class battles became the cry of the day. Dreams of the perfect world began to fade. These struggles saw many groups fall from the political landscape. As with the early Church, those professing a Christian faith became outcasts. Under heavy persecution, they were forced to practice their faith in secret underground enclaves. Their persecutors were determined to finish the Christian genocide that had begun over two thousand years ago. Humanity's Edge (HEdge) is the reigning world government. Ten consortium members representing every sector of the globe make up the HEdge Council, the supreme authority of the land. Living under the

Shades of Futures To Come Jun 6, 2002
Jeff Ovall's "Chronicles of the HEdge" is a gripping story of the possible destiny of mankind if he continues to pursue the present course of philosophy and world view. However, there is a shade of truth through this whole novel that each man and woman must answer for themselves here in the real world. The book reads much like the LEFT BEHIND series and has a few unsuspected twists as the book reaches it breathtaking climax.
The Persecuted Church -- all too real Mar 9, 2002
Jeff's view of Christianity's role in a "tolerant" society can easily be envisioned in this day and age. Many of the scenes in the book can be found in countries around the world -- the Bible banned, Christians persecuted for sharing their faith. It is a chilling but compelling story of globalized persecution.
Couldn't put it down! Jan 2, 2002
Fascinating story! The futuristic plot line is top notch. It is especially intriguing considering the recent tragic events in New York City and the Pentagon. The seeds of terror that haunt the persecuted church today, and were all too evident on 9/11, were precursors to the horror exemplified in Jeff Ovall's "CHRONICLES." A novel that will send chills through you as you sleuth through underground NYC subway tunnels and visit futuristic juvenile detention centers. It's a gripping novel that you will recommend to friends and family.
Great Stuff Sep 19, 2001
An excellent look at the persecuted Church in our not too distant future! Ovall captures the readers interest and keeps it throughout the Chronicles. Great character development and riveting action. I recommend this book to anyone. You won't be disappointed.
