Maybe if the characters don't repeat themselves and each other so much.
Not sure, I didn't finish listening to the book. No opinion.
The fact that it is a story about someone telling a story, which violates the first rule of story telling of show, not tell. If I was listening to a sermon or someone teaching about prophetic parallels with Israel and America it would have been ok, but instead this is trying to pass off as fiction and as such is not compelling.
I wasn't sure if he was trying for sorkin-eske dialogue with his repetition or if he just felt the need to repeat almost every idea. If he didn't repeat so much, the time I spent on this book could have been cut in half.
Found another word to use instead of calamity. Just told the story as it was happening, instead of telling the story of someone telling a story. Not repeat EVERYTHING.
Soothing. Interesting. The best part of the experience.
Anger. I found myself yelling in the car... I GET IT ALREADY, MOVE ON!
Informative, awesome, eyeopening
The Prophecy ...... it is prophecy fullfilled. A warning to the United States
The sycamore tree uproated and replanting of "evergreen" tree. "We will rebuild stronger" statements through out time by leaders.
I was in awe and overwhelmed by the details of accuracy. It "woke me up" to reality of what's happening in our country
I now stay alert to what's happening in America, where we are headed and who is in charge of our outcome. We owe God an apology for taking Him out of our schools, lives and government.
In chapter 3, the author condemns equality and tolerance. The author asserts that the founding fathers were Christians and created a Christian nation. He also condemns those who support the pro choice movement and those who support the separation of church and state. Even after hearing this HIGHLY offensive nonsense I tried to make it another chapter. In Chapter 4 he suggests that the horrible events of September 11th, 2001 are a result of said tolerance, equality, and progressive attitudes and ideals. He inferred that it was god's wrath. This was an insult to the memory of those lost, a slap in the face of those who lost family in the attacks, and salt in the wounds of those whose lives were forever changed by this devastating day; this is where I drew the line.
I would like to think if he left religion and personal politics out of the picture that it might be an enjoyable book; however since chapter 3 was he last chapter that I finished I feel unable to make that assessment.
His inflection didn't change much between the male and female speaking in the conference room.
I like the way he wrote the prophet's random appearances. I felt it relevant and entertaining. The whole religious premise was garbage, though.
I highly suggest that anyone who is progressive in their ideals stay far away from this author. He is clearly not writing anything positive, he is not moving in the direction of the majority of America, and his ancient notions of biblical intolerance should not be tolerated.
This book is a must read for every Christian and every citizen who loves this nation. The historical facts related in the book are TRUE. This is an excerpt from an internet search I did regarding George Washington and St. Paul's Chapel:
"George Washington prayed at St. Paul's Chapel after his inauguration as the first president of the United States in 1789. He continued to worship at St. Paul's until the capital of the United States moved from New York to Philadelphia in 1790."
St. Paul's Chapel's locale - across the street from ground zero! It was the only structure in the proximity left standing after the collapse of the twin towers!!
Be prepared to have a personal encounter with God, speaking through his prophet.
Yes I would, hopefully he will learn to keep the repeated informaton to a minimum in the next book.
This book is very interesting, I really liked the way the author put together historical data and made a modern story out of it. I am excited to see if his prophecies come true. My major problem with the book is how many times the author repeats a point, I felt like I was being treated like a child much of the time because I had to be told literally ten times the same point over and over again, sometimes in the same paragraph.
I get that sometimes a point needs to be repeated as a reminder to the reader about the point that is being made, but this was way over the top. I think you could probably cut out 1/3 of the book and still easily get the point across.
I'm a trucker of nearly 25 years. Listening to the radio is a matter of habit for me, but hearing the same songs over and over and OVER again became old. Audio books help those miles roll by faster!
I'm not sure exactly where I would rank this book, but I'm glad I listened to it.
Not exactly a book with "characters"
The book mentioned St. Paul's Chapel in relation to events that happened nearby. I found this part of the story most amazing.
Americans needs to listen to this
The detail and precision by which the story was tied into scripture. It was extremely eye opening to say the least.
A linehaul truck driver that spends most of his driving time at night. FM and talk radio can only take you so far at night, so I have filled my night miles with audiobooks - it is a great fit!
I have already listened to this book two times and will listen again. There is much historical information in this book that you will not pick it all up the first time around. There are many things in this book that you will want to independently check out for yourself, and the things that I have looked into, does in fact, check out. This is a book that I will purchase in print form.
The connection between Ancient Israel, the Birth of the United States of America and the actions that we took after the attack on 9/11/2001.
How the aftermath of 9/11 points back to our beginning and America's relationship to God.
This book was recommended to be by a friend. This is a book that you do not want to turn off, its that compelling and interesting. If you have ever questioned your faith, as I have, this might help settle the matter. After the first listen, I recommended it to everyone.
