Fire is one of my favorite historic fiction stories (the entire series is great, but this one is the best, in my opinion). I've read it multiple times, and it's a wonderful tale about the power of the Holy Spirit!

Fire was a really good read, but found it slower reading that the first book in this series, Proof. Am looking forward to reading the next book in the series, Storm.

I don't read much fiction, but this was right up my alley - a Christian story about a man with a heart for his city. This was a great "before-bed" book.
