Former FBI Agent Lisa Harmon returns home at the request of her brother, Thomas, the preacher at the mega church founded by their father—a father she despises because he sexually abused her when she was a little girl.

Whoever’s killing sinners has now put Lisa and her father on their list, and though Lisa hates her father, she might h...more
I am always pleased to find a good book that deals with an important often overlooked subject - in "Angel of Wrath" Bill Myers does an excellent job of delving into spiritual warfare. It is reminiscent of Frank Peretti's "This Present Darkness" and Shaunti Feldhahn's "The Veritas Project". This is book #2 but can stand alone (although I do plan on going back and reading the first one "The Voice") and it is based on those characters, with many returning. New characters are introduced and enrich t...more
I'm actually unsure how to rate Angel of Wrath. I gave it five stars because it was a well-crafted page-turner that packed a serious emotional punch and dealt with real issues (devil worship, narcissism, abortion, etc.) in a very tasteful, yet realistic, way. However, I must issue one caution. I know I usually warn about graphic violence, profanity, sexual references, and the like in my reviews, but this is a warning of a different nature: Two different scenes involve characters having flashback...more
I'm not much of a suspense fan but I did have trouble putting this story down. It was nice and edgy and dealt with realistic topics relating to sinful behavior not often found in Christian fiction. Personally, I was amazed at how much abuse that one poor man could take. The special ops training helped, but still... And the forgiveness theme played a big role in this book, hence the reason I enjoyed it so much. I found it fascinating how twisted the theology of the villian was, and yet at the sam...more
It was okay as a quick read as it is very short and you can easily finish it in a day. Its well written but honestly I just bought it because it is really hard to get books here and its one of the few that caught my eye. Normally I don't read this genre but I enjoyed it. I think the author has a very good voice and his plot kept me turning pages. I'm glad I bought it. I would recommend it to friends that are trying out different genres of books.
Bill Myers was born into a Christian home, and although as a child he became bored with Christianity, he decided at the University of Washington quote, to "make God my boss." Ironically, at the University his worst subject was writing. He claims to have prayed, and said that he would be able to do anything for God, except write. Even so, he has become a prominent Christian writer, and has a large...moreMore about Bill Myers...
