Publisher's Description

In this first book in the Principalities and Powers series, Israel has just attacked Iran?'s nuclear facilities, triggering a chain of potentially cataclysmic events around the planet. Will leaders and the "salt of the earth" - great and small - be able to intervene before events spin out of control? Nash Lee, an NGO entrepreneur, is determined to make a difference through his worldwide ivillage network. Kim Grace, a nuclear scientist imprisoned in North Korea?'s secret Camp 16, knows the truth about the devastating technology she helped develop. Anshel Gould, the brilliant chief of staff at the White House, has created a radical peace plan based on the long-forgotten UN proposal for Palestine after the Second World War. But is there a way to stop what seems unstoppable? What Iran, Israel, North Korea, and other earthly principalities and powers decide next could lead to global confrontation. . . .Based on extensive research about the coming global conflicts surrounding Israel and the leaders who will shortly play important roles in those conflicts, the Principalities & Powers series also confronts the biggest issue facing the Christian church today its historical role as the "salt of the earth," preserving the planet from corruption at critical moments in world history.

Publisher's Weekly

Nesbit, a former communications director to the vice president at the White House, has written a smart, globe-spanning tale of what could be, based on what already is, in world affairs today. Book one in the series "Principalities and Powers" includes characters and subplots from a secret prison camp in North Korea; a democratic movement in Iran; a fighter squadron from Israel; a soviet communist revival leader in Russia; and the office of the U.S. president, mixed into a fascinating doomsday scenario with fresh, simple twists. When Israel attacks Iran with stealth bombers purchased from the U.S., the world is on the brink, and a small group of people can save the world from destruction with two simple means of communication: a common cell and the bold strategy of talking directly to the enemy. The narration is generally crisp and realistic, though sometimes preachy and repetitive. While well researched, the book goes flat at the climax, where the author chooses summary instead of action. This novel notably and commendably resists the cardboard-cutout religious politics of many Christian fiction thrillers involving the Middle East. (Oct.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

    Fantastic story and much too real and close to home. Somewhat frightening and makes one think.

    And the author is entitled to his opinions which he fairly freely puts forth. Global warming seems a priority with him.

    Some of the tech stuff I found fascinating; some hard to follow. I.e. if the cloud is so ubiquitous and so free to all then how is it that the villains supposedly are clueless or at least mostly so?

    I also like the peace plan. It sounds workable.

    I liked the dead-pan faces toward the end of the book.

    Not to spoil it but there is a real cliffhanger about the guy who records an arrest and 'shoots' it to the clouds...only just! And then what? (: )

    There are some good things about this book. The scenario is a very real one. The author uses some real-world new (late 2009) technology information that most people don't know. The answers to the questions in the back are very interesting. Sometimes the action in the book is too slow. But the biggest drawback is the very transparent propagandist "lovefest" for our current president. It permeates the book and will be the main reason that I do not buy the sequel.

    "Peace" shows how Christians use the latest technology to further God's plans even in dire circumstances. This book presents a possible scenario that makes one think it could more likely be probable. I can't wait for the sequels "Oil" and "Temple".
