Towards the middle, I was getting annoyed with how little unpredictability there was. I was ready for a big ending. TD and BB delivered beautifully.
Caleb kept getting popular and healing over and over at first, then he started losing it, was poisoned, shot, abducted, and shot. I loved how innocent and joyful he was, though. He never wanted to show off, just wanted people to see the truth of God's kingdom. He jumped and praised the Lord every time his prayers were answered! (And Caleb's prayers were always answered.) There was a deep background behind everything, which was very rich and rewarding, making the whole book experience feel 3-D.
Plus, the authors did well to keep the story, though it had so much to say, very simple. It had a lot of details and cross-plots, but there were only a few main characters (very important) and they were believable and had so many conflicting emotions and personal qualms with each other and the miracles. Well-written and astounding.
