Are you ready to explore and question your own views on faith, hope, forgiveness, and the afterlife?
On a typical weekday morning in a peaceful suburb of Akron, Ohio, the town awakens to discover that Rachel Turner and her son, Evan, were brutally murdered during the night. A short while later, Danny Turner is found in his car at the bottom of a ravine, having taken his own life. Any explanation as to why a loving father and husband would suddenly commit a series of such heinous crimes has gone to the grave with the accused.
The mystery only deepens as the details of the murders emerge, and evidence of premeditation as well as Danny's hidden past are revealed.
Subsequently, Rachel's closest friend, Carolyn Bianci, sinks into a deep depression, while her husband, Mitch, copes with his despair by attempting to uncover the facts of the crime. Eventually, they encounter Joanna Larson, a fascinating woman who possesses extraordinary spiritual gifts. Through Joanna, the events that took place the night of the murders are unveiled. The answers Mitch and Carolyn discover are beyond their human understanding.
Inspired by true events, The Ravine is a story of faith, forgiveness, and most of all, the restoration of hope - even for the most seemingly unredeemable among us.
WOW!! I really enjoyed this book. I was instantly caught up in the story waiting for the next chapter to appear. it was definitely a great book. I wheels recommend it to anyone who may struggle with trying to understand The Mind of God and how His views are not ours. Spiritual Warfare if not just an idea, but real life, any I enjoyed how the author presented everything in this book.
What disappointed you about The Ravine?
The book presents an ABC of Christian belief as if its a revolutionary thought. The book therefore builds to a climax that is a duh!
The author tries to emulate The Shack which deals with the subject, radical forgiveness, with creativity and power.
thank God for the Audible return button
