The facts seem intriguing and it could have been an interesting read but the dialog between the prophet and the witness is dull and frustrating. Americans are NOT Gods chosen people, Israel has and always will have that status. To associate one with the other is a bit of a stretch but not at all out of line with the arrogance of American thinking and bravado.
The pontification towards the end sounds more like an alter call than anything else. The question, after question and never ending dialog with non-answers became very tedious.
The only people talking about this book seem to be Christians. This might have been a valuable bit of information for anyone and everyone to read and understand but it's heavy handed pontifications are repulsive and off putting, even to intelligent, well read Christians.
Too bad the author didn't take alienating people into consideration while crafting this book. The intriguing factoids and coincidences are interesting enough to stand on their own, without the sermon from the pulpit.
The holier than thou delivery. But I haven't read many.
The author is the narrator, and not very good at all. His attitude is arrogant, condescending, heavy handed and the tone doomed filled. He is unable to change from one character to the other effectively so it's difficult to determine who is speaking, combined with the very poor dialog, and it becomes very tiresome.
NO - absolutely not.
I found the book a bore. It put me to sleep.
The first person account of gathering the understanding of why we must turn our nation back to God at any cost, or receive the true wrath of God. This is an eye-opener for anyone that wants to understand how we have gotten where we are today and how we can change it. Now is the time for all Christians to demand we put God back first in our lives and in our country
The chapters reflecting on the comparisions of Isaiah 9:10 to the current economic situation in the US and the world
It made me reflect to my own short comings as a believer that we must do more to bring our God back to the forefront in our lives
As Christians we owe it to ourselves to heed the warnings and move accordingly
The book was amazing to listen to ... I bought a print copy.
The author has done a lot of compelling research.
I did not care for the selection of voices. They lacked authenticity.
The book made me want to do my own research.
The Harbingers described in this book are amazing and all true-the only fiction part are the characters themselves as they are discussing the harbingers revealed to them one at a time. The harbinger's really do outline America's (and each American's) future. I highly reccommend it. The writing style is conversational and draws you in--it was easy to listen to. The author was a very good narrator. The ending is amazing and leaves one with a great sense of personal responsibility as the main character felt.
I did not read the print version
The great thing about this book is that it lays out a case for it's truth. It would be easy to doubt except for all of the facts that the book lays out.
I haven't read the print version but the audio was excellent. I had a friend that read the print version and had pronounced Harbinger wrong. But she said that in the print version you get footnotes that add some information that you don't get in the audio.
The prophet. I think it was really an angel.
A must read for all americans!
The story was very interesting especially if you like "faction" books. This book mixes a mystery with the bible so if you like faith based fiction books this is a good one.
It was very impacting in a way that no audio book has impacted me before.
I don't think I would compare it to any other book. It is a unique work for a unique time in our country's history.
Yes, Classic teaching by an established Bible teacher.
I weep for what will happen to this country if we do not repent and turn from our wickedness.
Immediately I found myself criticizing both the author and narrator (one in the same for this book). As an avid Dan Brown reader/listener I kept finding spots in the book where I felt Jonathan Cahn could have used some tutoring from that renowned story teller by giving more historical context as well as some character development.
I slowly realized that I was missing the point of the book and told myself to pay attention to the author's intent.
Jonathan Cahn is not a great author nor is he a spectacular narrator. However if you remember my self instructed review headline while listening to this book, you'll find the importance and relevance of this story. Thus my 3 star rating of the story and performance and the contradictory 5 star overall rating.
A previous reviewer opined about the illegitimacy of the correlations that Mr. Cahn has uncovered. That reviewer is in denial and also missed the author's message.
The tone of the narrator
This was my second audible book. I am glad I listened to Glenn Beck and bought this one. It send chills down my spine. Very good book by Jonathan. His performance was also good.
