Editorial Reviews

Review

"This story is a riveting thrill ride with elements of action, suspense, biblical prophecy, and themes seemingly ripped from today's headlines. You'll come away after reading The Christ Virus asking yourself the haunting question: could this all actually happen."
- Joel Richardson, New York Times Bestselling Author 


"The Christ Virus immediately drew me into its compelling story-line. Eerily plausible, it leaves the reader wondering, 'What if...?' and sends one looking to both the newspaper as well as the apocalyptic literature of Scripture. It's clear that Dave Slade has done both. Brilliantly researched, this book provokes a sense of caution in the current geopolitical environment."
- Skip Heitzig, Senior Pastor Calvary of Albuquerque, Author of You Can Understand the Book of Revelation


"Beyond a great read, this is one of those thrillers that leaves you looking at the world around you with a fresh perspective. Dave Slade delivers in a big way!"
- Wanda Dyson, Bestselling Author of Judgment Day and Shepherds Fall

"A chilling realization of how biblical prophecy, global socio-economic factors, and technology fuse together to create conditions perfectly suited for a Christ Virus scenario."
- Dr. Showkat Alborzi, Author of He Gave Me His Heart so I Gave Him Mine

They might be monitors sent by the government to protect the individual rights of religious tolerance as the spinmeisters spun it. They might not be. But if the men were monitors, they would sift every word of Luke's message to ensure it offended no one. The recent passage of the anti-hate crimes bill declared it illegal to teach anything from a pulpit that was offensive—and broad license was given to the interpretation of what offensive meant.

Fast paced with great characters.

It's hard to put down once you get to know the characters/storyline and like any good thriller, its plot picks up quickly and keeps you guessing throughout.

Well written edge of your seat thriller showing an ominous scenario of bio terror.

I enjoyed the book very much. Finished it in two days. It was a compelling storyline that causes you to think about the reality of such a feasible development in this nation. The concepts presented are really not that far fetched as you watch the direction of how things are going in our world. Thanks Dave for a job well done. Fun to see the fruit of yours and Holly's adventure together.

With a page-turning plot and compelling scenes of danger and decision, this is a novel everyone should read! The threat of deadly mutated strains of flu hangs over 2019 America, a country no longer truly free, but beset by invasive new laws and rising terrorist activity. It's not often that you find a political thriller about the future so well-researched, expertly-written, and connected to current trends in our culture. The Christ Virus will grab you from page one and take you on a hair-raising ride to the future, but will also keep you thinking about its relevance and plausibility long after you finish reading.

I simply could not put this book down. It is written in a style very similar to Joel C. Rosenberg--a suspensful, edge-of-the seat book with a realistic scenario. I have read all of the books by Joel Rosenberg and if you liked those, you'll be glad you got this first in what is likely to be a long running and popular series! Dave Slade created a masterpiece on his initial outing!

I am an avid reader and finished this one in record time. The storyline is full of interest and intrigue. The writing is laden with great visuals through the author's colorful descriptions and metaphors. There are more than the usual unexpected twists which keep you thinking and analyzing. Very entertaining book. I hope the story will continue in a sequel.

Format: Paperback
What would happen if our entire country were at war? Imagine a conflict involving every man, woman, and child regardless of race, religion, or social status. The Christ Virus explores the possibility of a terror-driven bio-attack in a near-future America.

Told from multiple viewpoints, The Christ Virus is a fast-paced thriller that takes place in Washington DC and various locations in New Mexico. Islamic terrorist, Sulaiman Hadid, leads the siege under the veil of being divinely directed by Allah. A terrifying and all-too-believable tale unfolds. Yet in the face of an indiscriminate and deadly threat, courage and strength come forward. Everyday heroes emerge, like Luke Chavez, pastor of small Albuquerque south valley church, who brings faith to its feet by leading people to life and hope. And Dr. Jenny George, the Washington DC based Virologist desperately seeking a solution to the bio threat.

For those wondering if terrorism is a political or a spiritual issue, this book settles the question. Author, Dave Slade, ignites the story of a weak president, an unprepared government, and a misguided military to deal with a weapon aimed squarely at our country and our hearts. An unambiguous tale of good and evil, and a very compelling read.

WOW!! So glad Amazon is ordering even more copies of the CHRIST VIRUS book to supply the demand. I "highly" recommend this book! It's a thriller that caused me to 'think'. I found myself trying to think ahead of Dave...but was surprised and even shocked at the various turn of events in the story!!! Even as I read the first chapter I could already imagine it becoming another 'Left Behind Series'... I have high expectations of seeing it in all of the theaters.
It is obvious that Dave Slade has a brilliant mind, and did his homework in research and detail. It's also obvious to me that he is an amazing author who understands the mind and heart of man.My own heart certainly 'quickened' as I read each chapter. I hope you will buy and read the CHRIST VIRUS. You will be glad you did. I'm already hoping for book number TWO ! Nancy Galligan

Great book. Normally I gingerly read books over the course of a week or two when I can find the time, but I found myself staying up late for this one and finished The Christ Virus in just a few days. It's hard to put down once you get to know the characters/storyline and like any good thriller, its plot picks up quickly and keeps you guessing throughout. It's a pretty fast read; the writing style flows well and it doesn't slow down much at any point; you will fly through pages without realizing it. I personally prefer thriller/suspense novels to read that way, so I really liked it. If your reading tastes are similar, you'll probably like this book too.

I've recommended it to friends and loaned my copy out a couple times already, it hasn't disappointed yet...

I finished it up last week. I really enjoyed the book is wish it was more in depth. I was terrified by his portrayals the thought of the world closing in on us like that. I was brought up in the country of the American west. I'm a cowboy at heart. There is a fight in me. I realize that the fight is on my knees and by my words. It is a wakeup call for times that are I believe soon in the future for this nation.
Thank yo for writing it and giving up all the time and going through all that you had to, to get it written.
