Is it possible that there exists an ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future? That this mystery lies behind everything from 9/11 to the collapse of the global economy? That ancient harbingers of judgment are now manifesting in America? That God is sending America a prophetic message of what is yet to come? Before its end as a nation, there appeared in ancient Israel nine specific warnings and omens of national destruction - these same Nine Harbingers are now manifesting in America with profound ramifications.

This book itself is a "calamity"

What disappointed you about The Harbinger?

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.

What could Jonathan Cahn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

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.

What three words best describe Jonathan Cahn’s voice?

Soothing. Interesting. The best part of the experience.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger. I found myself yelling in the car... I GET IT ALREADY, MOVE ON!
