Soon Jan 9, 2007
Wow, I loved this book, well written and exciting story line. Will read again....
Intriguing Jul 26, 2006
Soon really pulled me into the characters Paul and Jae. It left me wanting to get the next book Silenced.
I tried Mar 20, 2006
I tried to listen to "SOON" after having enjoyed the 'left behind' series. But I must confess that this novel failed to grab me. The narrator's narration was uninspired, the characterization (yet another womanizing chump ala "Rayford), left me cold, and the parallels to the life of apostle Paul were tedious. I also grew bored with the 'persecution of poor widdle innocent Christians' which seems to be the single note played over and over in the 'end times fiction.' Somehow I seriously doubt you'll get Christians to give up God quite so easily, and I don't see the world capital moving to Switzerland anytime soon.
1 star. Silly.
The Wrath will Soon Desend... Mar 17, 2006
This is another series that was started by Jerry Jenkins according to the end of times when the Rapture would occur. Starting at the time of P.3(2010) when the World WarIII broke out, signals of the rapture occur. These signals of God causes Christian groups(religion is illegal) to start evangilizing people who have not met Christ. This fast paced book is a thriller although it has a few flaws. Paul Stepola, meet Christ after an injury of a burning fire, in which he becomes blind. Miraclouly, his eyes are healed and then he is converted with the help of the New Testament and a person named Straight. Paul goes through many hardships and tests of faith through events that occur. Paul becomes a double agent to the National Peace Oraganization for the Christian underground. He stays loyal in his faith and fights for the ungerground and gives them hope. In the end, Paul and other pray for a miracle to occur and then the water is soon wiped away from the face of the Earth. They know that God has worked his miracles and helps nonChristians to turn. I strongly recommend this book to people who enjoy biblical fiction or fast paced books
God works May 14, 2005
I thought this was a terrific book, and while I borrowed this from the library, I went out and bought the second one as SOON as I finished the first one! I loved the development of faith in the main character... that he is not "preached to" by anyone, but wooed to the truth by the Word Himself. I also like that the two minor miracles were purely by the grace of God, and not an "obligatory" answer to prayer. The major miracle was a bit inconsistent, as all the water was sucked out of the food and the plants, but apparently people were not harmed--except, of course, by the subsequent dehydration after the fact.
Overall, though, I enjoyed it so much that I've already read the 2nd, and can't wait for the 3rd!
