Overview With the establishment of a fenced-off community in central North Carolina named Kingdom Come, the FBI begins to suspect cultic activity. Agent Ben Atkins is sent to investigate and finds that time is running short for him to discover the truth as unexpected enemies threaten the community's existence.
Publishers Description Central North Carolina hasn't seen much change in over 50 years...but suddenly people who have been there for generations are leaving the small farming settlements-lock, stock, and barrel. When massive warehouses surrounded by metal fencing seem to go up overnight, local businesses are bought out, and more than 6,000 families establish residence in a community named Kingdom Come, the FBI begins to suspect cult activity. Agent Ben Atkins is sent to investigate, and though he does sense something major happening, he is not convinced it is sinister. In fact, as he moves in for a closer look, he begins to wonder if those on the inside of Kingdom Come are working to keep evil out. But time is running short for him to discover the truth, as unexpected enemies-law enforcement agencies, media groups, and even the church hierarchy-threaten the community's existence.

Great Read Jul 30, 2003
I loved this book. Could not put this book down. I recomend it to anyone that loves the lord and fiction mysteries. I have read several T. Davis Bunn books they are all great. But this book with Larry Burrket was great. I am a new christian and recomend it to all new christians.
just a great Christian Fiction book Oct 13, 2001
One of the things i've enjoyed most about reading books by T. Davis Bunn is the easy flow of his stories. This book is no different. It's a very enjoying story with a terrific Christian theme. In short, i'd recommend this book to anybody who wants to read a good fiction book where you really get to see the power of God at hand.
A fine book...but I wanted more! Jul 4, 2001
I thoroughly enjoyed reading KINGDOM COME. Authors Burkett and Bunn have written some fine novels and have the genre pretty much perfected. This must be difficult when writing a Christian novel. You must be careful with the language and use of violence while maintaining a realistic storyline that isn't pure pabulum. In this, they have succeeded. KINGDOM COME had me wondering just who the bad guys were, what the alleged bad guys were up to, and how the situation could be resolved. All in all, a real page-turner. I only had two problems with the story. First, what was the purpose of the fence? It was the single most damning evidence that the community was most likely a cult, yet it was never adequately explained (at least to my satisfaction). Secondly, the book ended too quickly. I would have liked to read more of what eventually happened to all the major players. There was no mention at all of the despicable Miller Kedrick. That he was no Christian, though a major player in the church, was obvious from the beginning. Did he go to prison? Did he commit suicide? I think the book needed another 10 to 15 pages to tie up the loose ends and let the reader know where everyone ended up - both the good guys and the bad. I'm still happy with the book and glad I read it. I look forward to more books from Burkett/Bunn.
An Unexpected Plot Feb 20, 2001
This is a great book. The plot is unexpected, the events and characters unfold in a very quick pace at the end. There are some great descriptions of a personal experience with God. I was thinking the wrong thing when I started this book - I thought I already knew the plot - I was wrong - Enjoy!
