A fast-paced, thrilling adventure of Christian spies. Hang on to your seat & prepare for a wild ride!!

4 stars due to some grammar, spelling, & punctuation errors. 5 stars for content, pace, & characters though!

This was a very good read! It was fast paced and not overly gross and gruesome like some crime themed books.

Wonderful read! Better than a bubble bath.(calgon take me away)! Remindered me of a James Bond, written by C S Lewis.

Wonderful read! Better than a bubble bath, (calgon take me away). I would get carried away with the characters, I became part of the story.

Ahh, the original Parabaloni... The first book, and the beginning of adventures in more ways than one... I was privileged to read the first edition and almost first copy (handbound, nonetheless). I have read it several more times over the years, and must say what has always been a good story has greatly improved to become the stellar edition you can now read. Interesting, intellectually-stimulating, intelligent, illuminating, innocent... A book for young and old alike.

I have always been entranced by a 'good read' and can be found curled up reading or creating a book whenever I have a spare moment. What draws me to a book is usually simple interest in a fun tale. But what makes me love a book is the design of its content, where the ideas presented are trying to lead their readers. I have always been fascinated by the written word, philosophical reasoning, and go ...more

“Sometimes you have to risk things for the gospel’s sake, to reach people. You know, in the early church there was a group of Christians who risked their lives just to help the sick and dying. They ran toward plague victims instead of away from them, and called themselves the Parabaloni, the Gamblers, because they were gambling with their lives to help their fellow men. If there were more Christians like that around today, Christians who were willing to actually get up off the couch and risk some things for others, the world might not be in such an evil state.” 0 likes
“A Christian’s death is never happy. Heaven is happy. Death is not. Death is a horrible reminder of everything wrong. It’s unnatural, the most jarring reminder of our fall and the presence of evil there is. Don’t try to be happy about it, Vincent. Hold to where they are, that you will certainly be there too. But here we have to live staring the effects of our sin in the face. Death is that effect at its strongest. It is a deep spiritual sorrow, as well as a real physical bereavement. Jesus is its conquer. Keep letting Him conquer it for you.” 0 likes
