Although the story takes place in the future, the social standards and behaviors of the "civilized" world mirror the anti-Christian political rhetoric of today. The story is very thought provoking and definitely an interesting read. I would recommend it.
I couldn't put this novel down. The state of Christianity in the USA is going this route, the true message of the power of Christ and the political correctness pushing sharing the message out of public life. A refreshing story of a missionary in a closed tribe for years working with the Lord to bring the gospel, and learning along the way herself.
Although I wondered just where the Rapture of the church would have been in this book's scenario, I completely enjoyed the storyline. It was well written and had enough explanations of the gospel in it, without being overdone, that I am going to use it as a witnessing tool. I didn't love the ending, but I'll leave that for you to decide. It's still an excellent book as long as you remember that it's fiction.
i really enjoyed this book... i think its the best Christian fiction book i have read since the Narnia books I read as a kid. Very likable characters interesting plot... though I was a bit dissatisfied with the ending ... I think it fell apart a little and didn't tie up all the loose ends but overall it was an excellent book.
