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!

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.

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.

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.
