This novel is a parallel novel to Times of Trouble. Check out Times of Turmoil, the prequel.

This is the story about three Christian families who experience the persecution of Christians first hand when the U.S. becomes a Police State. Two of the families get rounded up by government forces as the President declares a dictatorship, initiates Michael Evans' Order 21, and lays the U.S. on a course that will mean its ultimate destruction. The third family make their way from Arizona to Wyoming, where they hope a town built by Doomsday Preppers twenty years earlier will keep them safe.  Micheal Evans also tries to manipulate events in the Middle East to try to to bring war between Israel and Iran shortly before the end times.

4.0 out of 5 stars Realistic read! July 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
In the third of the series, Cliff Ball has given a fast-paced read with a truly wonderful ending. Actually, book two and book three are more like siblings, both happening in the same time frame. Enjoyable from start to finish, I received a copy to review honestly. This was really a good and very timely read. All believers should read this!

5.0 out of 5 stars More Military of the Three Books June 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Another thought provoking novel by Cliff Ball! What would happen if Christians were rounded up and sent to "re-education camps"? Some Christians have been getting ready for this day, taking lessons from doomsday preppers- making bunkers, booby-trapping their farms, and stockpiling weapons and food. The militia is sent to battle and roundup these "rebels". After they are placed in the camps, the Christians show mercy to each other in taking care of the elderly and uplifting each other- ministering by example to their keepers. They are just left there until the collapse of the U.S., when the guards are told to lock the doors and just let them die. Meanwhile, leaders in government are seen manipulating events and each other in the quest to become ruler of the world. Does the evilest man win? Which one is it? I was given a copy of this book in return for my honest review.

I started reading Times of Trial this afternoon and couldn't put it down. It is a believable fiction account of what could be happening or might happen soon. It was entertaining and informative and very thought provoking. I will be reading more books by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging with Biblical end time prophetic themes April 5, 2013
Format:Paperback
The book Times of Trial, by Cliff Ball, will interestingly allow your imagination to ponder on the future, the Government, and just how many restrictions may be placed on future Christians. Though a fictional piece, author Ball speaks about and masterfully weaves events in a way where your emotions will empathize with the believers while you see events go from bad to horrific.

You will explore what a society can become as Islam rises, churches decline, and those believers left must leave their present churches and succumb to FEMA underground camp. The persecution the Jews must endure, another bible reality, is also a testament that God is Sovereign and His protection and will prevails.

Talented author Cliff Ball will keep you engaged throughout. I recommend this book to you and other works he has published as they are clear of inappropriate content and suitable to anyone above age 13.
This book was given to me as a gift from Crossreads in exchange for a fair, honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Times of Trial March 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an exciting novel about the author's perception of the end times. We all know they are coming and this is a great look at how they could be. I thoroughly enjoyed this story with some fear and trepidation as to what may be coming down in the future. We had better be ready physically and spiritually to withstand the end times because they will be brutal and we will need a close personal relationship with God to get through it all.
