I have always had a good interest in post-apocalyptic work. Something about starting over from ground zero or seeing how the world resets itself—humanity versus the environment—always gets me going. I was definitely intrigued by Lucit’s novel when he approached me for a review of his Christian post-apocalyptic book. In my head I was thinking, this is going to be awesome. There will be people with super powers or some sort of crazy battle involving good versus evil with all of humanity at risk! I ...more

The Bishop of 12th Avenue by Ray Lucit tells the story of eighteen year old Jacob Walker, or Jake, who lives in an apocalyptic world, who soon becomes much more than he ever dreamed possible.

This new role propels Jake into a strange new world, where a group called the Churchers, is relying on him to save their lives. While a bit of a dismal s ...more

Post apocalyptic world battle between Jake and the churches against the evil.

I love post apocalyptic world stories and I found this one to completely keep my attention and wanting to find out what will happen next. A story of a battle between good and bad with our young hero Jake first defending the old leader who then passes the power to Jake. As the story continues to twist through the shadows of this fearful world, jake begins to learn about his mission and responsibilities to the churches.

Interesting Plot!
An adventurous fiction based on theme of good vs evil. This is the journey of the teenager street boy who suddenly finds that he was one of last bishops in the world and has to fight a challenging battle of survival. The character development is really good, the story flows well and bit of humor here and there keeps it light read.

Thought provoking

I really enjoyed this story. The idea of the feds against the churches is something that could happen in the world today.
Probably already beginning to happen in some places.
Halfway through the story , I had to force my self to put it down and think about it.

Good read

This story was not the typical story line. I really enjoyed the plot and also the fact that a belief system was interwoven into the story.
Great book!!
