Ever wonder what youd do if you had a warning of the imminent return of Christ? Author John Robinson unleashes a taut, exciting thriller in his new novel Heading Home. The forces of good and evil clash in one last battle as two retired combat veterans go up against a different kind of enemyone they cant seebut who is determined to destroy them and everyone they love. Robinson delivers one of the most powerful end of days novels ever written. Highly recommended! Nancy Mehl, award winning author of the Ivy Towers Mystery Series
Heading Home is the flip side of Left Behindon steroids! Eric Wiggin, author of Blood Moon Rising
Robinson delivers a novel that strikes the heart with what true faith is all about. A taste of the past, a mission for the present, and a glimpse of the future will keep the reader in suspense and anticipation. DiAnn Mills, author of Sworn to Protect
Heading Home is a tightly woven story with many happy endings. Thats my kind of book! Hannah Alexander, author of The Hideaway Series
Bonnie Toews4 Stars Out Of 5Pumped-Up PacingNovember 8, 2010Bonnie ToewsQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3From the raw opening scenes in Viet Nam to the promised rapture, John Robinson marches readers through to an end-time Holocaust and final glory in his novel, "Heading Home." Strong literary writing in Part One catapults the author into the ether of great classics, but the rest of the book sacrifices this powerful voice for faster pacing. I was hoping for a crossover treatment that would engage and inspire fence-sitting Christians, but its authentic tone is for believers only. "Heading Home" is â€˜knock-out' Christian fiction.
Joy DeKok5 Stars Out Of 5September 29, 2010Joy DeKokHeading Home took me by surprise. Author, John Robinson, took me where I didn't know I needed to go - with two vets on a new mission involving a different kind of warfare. The characters remind me of people I know - real, deep, funny, and flawed. I left the pages of Heading Home a different woman than when I started it. Bravo Mr. Robinson.
KennedyNorth CarolinaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5August 29, 2010KennedyNorth CarolinaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleContemporary Christian fiction has often been criticized for being saccharine or amateurish.What's needed are more Christian writers who ply their craft with excellence. John Robinson does precisely that in HEADING HOME.The book is great, exhilarating fun. The central characters (Vietnam vets seeking out their scattered brothers-in-arms for one last imperative rescue) are three-dimensional, funny and imperfect, doing their best in a harrowing situation and trusting God to make things right. Their camaraderie rings true; men who have fought side by side have a unique bond.The villains are vivid and VERY, VERY evil; the action is intense and the story is deeply moving.HEADING HOME is tightly written, well-plotted, entertaining, but most of all, soaringly inspirational; exactly what Christian fiction should be.
Diane Moody5 Stars Out Of 5August 26, 2010Diane MoodyHEADING HOME was extremely hard to put down! John Robinson has crafted a compelling story that kept me flipping pages long into the night. I'm a sucker for stories about Vietnam vets because I still feel we owe them such a huge debt of gratitude . . . but this tale far exceeded my expectations. I immediately admired both the main characters from start to finish and felt the intense pressure of their high calling to reach their Nam buddies before God called them all home. Not an easy task with less than a week to go!I have to say, the last four chapters were the most riveting final chapters of any book I've ever read! John, I'm your newest biggest fan. Can't wait for your next book! Keep 'em coming!
Bruce Judisch5 Stars Out Of 5August 20, 2010Bruce JudischJust when you think the Last-Days genre has been pretty much exhausted, John Robinson slips one in under the radar that knocks your socks off. Clearing the high bar he set in his previous novels, he infuses brutal force into his prose and remains steadfastly unapologetic in his message--both of which are essential to pull off a story like "Heading Home."Mr. Robinson does a great job of working on two planes of spirituality simultaneously in this story of healing and redemption. You've likely already identified the higher plane from the first sentence of this review: the redemption of mankind and the healing of a created order groaning and suffering as it eagerly awaits revelation of the sons of God. (Rom. 8:19-23). The second plane is at the personal level, and it's where Mr. Robinson excels at the storytelling. While God is attending to the cosmos, Nick Castle and CT Barnes are hard at work on the ground. Christ's return is imminent, and there's no time to lose as these closest of friends seek out former comrades-in-arms from their days in Viet Nam. Nick and CT consider it paramount to witness to the men with whom they shared the most intense days of their lives before it's too late. That's what you do for your buddies. It's what you do for God.But there's a new battle looming, one with potentially devastating consequences. While Nick and CT search for their old friends, a satanic cult has targeted their home church for destruction, including their families, their dearest friends and themselves. No one is aware of the plot until the cult lauches its attack at the crux point of the story.You. Will. Not. Want. To. Miss. The. Final. Showdown. Oh no, you will not.If you ran the marathon with "Left Behind," you'll enjoy the sprint with "Heading Home." And it will leave you breathless.
