Excellent Book

If you are interested in the "end times", this book is for you. It's fiction but what is written COULD happen, just as the author writes. I recommend this book.

I've come to expect a lot from Cliff Ball. This series is starting off a little drier than his last one, but is still a good story. The idea of the government limiting care is scarily possible. The idea of them creating a virus to control population is more uncertain for me. The concept of politicians and news reporters putting the spin on it that blame Christians and Americans brings us back into the realm of the possible again.

I really enjoyed this book. I love end times thrillers. I can see a lot of this happening today. My small negative would be that I would have liked to have felt a little more passion when reading this book. I have said this before, I don't know how an author does it but some are better at making me feel passionate about what I'm reading.

I loved this book. It contains some current events and some very possible scenarios. If you are a Christian or if you think you have plenty of time to make a decision about Christ then you need to read this book now. This is a very believable story of what could happen in the near future if some things don't change. I can't wait for the next book to come out. Another great novel by Cliff Ball.

Great plot!

I have read Cliff Ball's other End Times series which I loved. This one doesn't disappoint either. The plot is thought provoking. As believer, it makes me want to be a better witness for Jesus. Unless highly recommend this book.

Amazon Kindle: The Falling Away - Christian End Times novel 1 4 Oct 12, 2015 08:00AM  
I'm a Christian first and foremost. My novels are written from my worldview, so they have either Christian or Conservative themes in them. I live in Texas, have a BA and Technical Writing Certificate from University of North Texas. I won 3rd in a short story contest for a magazine through my high school Creative Writing class. I've been independently published since 2008.
