(REAL NAME) This review is from: SCARS: An Amazing End-Times Prophecy
As of this writing,
America teeters on the precipice of financial disaster, thanks to President Obama's radical, leftist policies. According
to Scripture, the Antichrist comes to power amid worldwide economic collapse and unbridled conflict in the Middle East. How
close are we to the end of the world system? Is the Antichrist alive today? Bible scholar and prophecy-author Grant Jeffrey
"Scars" is one author's idea of
what the end times, and the Antichrist, will look like--through the eyes of 16-year-old Becky Silver. Becky is innocent, charming,
strong-willed, and highly sensitive, and I have a sneaking suspicion that Patience Prence is the same! :-)
The narrative-writing is rich and colorful, the dialogue free-flowing and realistic. As a Christian
novelist, I frequently use interior monologue to better convey the protagonist's thoughts and feelings, and the author
uses it judiciously and effectively. One thing I especially appreciated was that Patience backs up her scenes with Scripture
to emphasize her point. This way the curious reader can delve into the Bible and learn more about what she's describing.
Overall, I found "Scars" to be a greatly entertaining
and instructive story. The ending is one of the most riveting and moving I've ever read--and brought tears to my eyes.
I truly believe this book will become a Christian classic.
