Publisher's Description

EDGE-OF-YOUR-SEAT SUSPENSE...AND SOMETHING MORE...! A father trapped in a terrible underwater accident. A son desperate to do something--anything--to save him. A digital read-out ticking down toward certain death--and a fate more horrible still... For Alan Rockaway, his teenaged son Jeff, and Alan's new bride, Jenny, it's been little more than a fascinating tourist submarine excursion, a leisurely end to a weeklong church-couples' cruise. Then the horrifying crash and the plunge toward the unknown.... Everything Alan has assumed about himself, about what awaits him in the future, is flipped upside down. In the ultimate rescue operation, life or death is just the beginning!

Author Bio

John Bevere, who has a doctorate in ministry, is passionate about seeing individuals deepen their intimacy with God and capture an eternal perspective. An international best-selling author, his award-winning books and teaching materials are available at the conferences and churches where he speaks around the world. John co-hosts "The Messenger" T.V. program airing in 216 nations. He and his wife, Lisa, also a best-selling author, founded Messenger International in 1990, currently with offices in Colorado, Australia, and the United Kingdom. They live in Colorado Springs with their four sons, and they all enjoy sports, whether scuba diving or skiing, wherever their travels take them! More information can be found on their website:

Mark Andrew Olsen, whose novel The Assignment was a Christy Award finalist, also collaborated with Tommy Tenney on bestsellers Hadassah and The Hadassah Covenant. The son of missionaries to France, Mark is a graduate of Baylor University. He and his wife, Connie, live in Colorado Springs with their three children.

Rescued by John Bevere and Mark Andrew Olsen is an interesting and creative novel, with a rough start. It takes several disjointed chapters to fully understand what is going on, but the persevering reader will discover a fascinating tale once the pace picks up, or at least when accustomed to the somewhat awkward assemblage of chapters.
The central characters are simple, yet complex enough to hold our interest. The major characters include Alan Rockaway, the pastor of a highly successful church, his son Jeff, and Alan’s second wife Jenny. Alan is a respectable, if arrogant, man who is enjoying a retreat in the Caribbean with his wife and a handful of couples from their church. Jeff is brought along to document the trip.
However, like in most fiction, everything goes wrong. The church couples are stranded in a submarine with a limited amount of time left to live, and Jeff is left on the dock, powerless to help them. The story chronicles the desperate ordeal of the trapped couples, and, through backstories and subplots, builds a story so intricate that it seems nearly impossible that the authors will be able to produce a satisfying ending. Thankfully, the ending is quite logical, and that, as much as anything, is what makes this convoluted plot worth following.
Even still, it is not simply the stunning descriptions or intense story that make this book a powerful tale, it is the clear message that is delivered during the story. Apart from being an interesting saga, it also makes the reader think—a rare commodity in many books today. There are issues related to ethics, salvation, personal life goals, and one’s legacy that are examined intensely.
This book contains some potentially controversial theological ideas, and anyone who is disturbed by suspense or serious injuries may find some parts of this book to be a little extreme. I would very much recommend this book to anybody looking for an intriguing and potentially life-changing way to pass the time. – Sarah Haines, Christian Book

    This is an excellent book. It shows the difference between being a nominal Christian and being a truly regenerated Christian. I don't want to give anything away, so I will just say that this is a must read. No, those who call themselves Christians but whose fruit (or lack of it)/lifestyles show otherwise probably will not be changed by it. Only the Holy Spirit can change people. But, hopefully, they will think and ask God to show them the truth. And for true Christians, hopefully it will make them more aware of the many pseudo-Christians out there and give them a desire to spread the Gospel and tell of Christ's redeeming blood. God Bless.
