Machen's classic defense of orthodox Christianity established the importance of scriptural doctrine and contrasts the teachings of liberalism and orthodoxy on God and man, the Bible, Christ, salvation, and the church. Though originally published nearly seventy years ago, the book maintains its relevance today. It was named one of the top 100 books of the millennium by World magazine and one of the top 100 books of the century by Christianity Today.

Amazing how a book from the past can shed light on to the present. Christianity and liberalism is one of those books. The attack against Christianity is as strong as today as ever. The insights, encouragement and solutions in this book are as true today As when they were first written.

One word changes everything. The all-powerful ruling authority, the Common, implants sensors into its citizens, sensors into the eyes and into the ears. They can see what you see and hear what you hear, and everything is monitored and recorded. One wrong word, or action, and you can lose your citizenship, which means death.

If you could sum up City of Words in three words, what would they be?

Exciting, unique, edge of your seat

What other book might you compare City of Words to and why?

Hunger Games and the Divergent Series comes to mind, in that this is a teen dystopian story, but a world and story that is unique.

What does Steve Barnes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Great reader...really pulls you into to the story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Each chapter was a cliffhanger...every question that was answered, another one was raised. I was mad at the ending...but immediately purchased the next book to see what happened.

Any additional comments?

This is a great new series from a talented author. It's a very engaging story with memorable characters. This books needs to be made into a movie!
