Reviews - What do customers think about Rescued: A Novel?

Good story with an even better message  Mar 26, 2007
John Bevere and Mark Andrew Olson collaborate on this terrifying and intriguing thriller. Pastor Alan Rockaway is the pastor of a mega-church in Denver and we find him at the height of his ministry as the novel begins. Alan and his new wife, Jenny, along with several other couples from church embark on a couples' cruise designed to strengthen marriage relationships. Alan invites his son, Jeff, along to video the entire event for a documentary. Tragedy strikes the group during an off-boat excursion, and Jeff is forced to watch as his father, step-mother, and several church members sink to the bottom of the ocean floor when a yacht strikes their submarine.

Chaos and fear ensue as the trapped victims desperately try to survive until help can come for them. Through this experience Alan and the members of his church must face some spiritual truths that will challenge everything they have ever believed.

This is a good story with an even better message. What does it really mean to be a Christian? Can God be a God of grace and yet still require his followers to live their lives a certain way according to a certain standard? Is it enough just to be a good person and go through the motions in our spiritual lives? Bevere and Olson tackle these questions and the answers are sure to be eye-opening and maybe even shocking to some. This book has great elements of suspense woven throughout, but the message contained within is potentially life-changing. At times the message of the novel seems so challenging and so intense that some may find it hard to read, however I highly recommend this novel for those who are in need of a serious spiritual wake-up call. And honestly who isn't? (From Christian Review of Books)
 
WOW  Mar 23, 2007
I read this because I have enjoyed other books by Mark Andrew Olsen. I saw someone call a book a "page churner" instead of a "page turner". That's what this book ended up being. I didn't want to put it down!

It just got better and better and by the end it really makes you think about making sure you're right with God. Don't miss it!
 
Wonderful story  Feb 22, 2007
This novel was well done in that it shares the gospel in a very impressive way. The story was pretty hard to believe at times but the characters really came alive and it made me wish I could know them personally. I have recommended the book to others who may need a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
 
dust jacket is misleading  Feb 16, 2007
I picked up this book because of reading the back of the book. Suspense and rescueing are right up my alley. I was very disappointed when I discovered the book was spiritual. I have nothing against spirtual books and I guess it was OK if that is what you are looking for, but I think the back of the book should have said something about this fact. I am giving it three stars because of an misleading description of the book. I would have given it two but I am guessing for those he read this type of book, it probably wasn't bad, but I had a really hard time staying interested.
 
Pair with Driven by Eternity  Feb 15, 2007
I really enjoyed this book. However, I think it is helpful to note that this story may be confusing without reading John Bevere's nonfiction book Driven by Eternity also. Reading the two books together will really give you the full picture of what's happening in Rescued.
