I first saw a mention of this book on my Twitter stream back in June. I went to the website and was intrigued by the description and asked the author to let me know when it was released on Kindle. I downloaded last month and recently completed the read.
First, this book is not necessarily a light read. There's a lot of math and you have to be thinking along as you read it. This is not a bad thing. I learned a lot and the necessary math is a crucial part of the intricate plot. The good news is that the "technical" aspects of the 13th enumeration are beautifully crafted and wrapped around the main characters in the book. There are several stories going on all at once and they weave dangerously close to one another and then back off a bit until they crash together towards the end of the book.
While the Psalms references didn't speak to me personally, I know there are a lot of folks who will find these a masterful addition.
I found the setting of Israel to be fascinating and the vivid descriptions whisked me away to a land I have never seen. After reading the 13th Enumeration, Israel is now on my list of places I would love to visit.
While reading author, William Struse's novel, I found myself wondering how one man could know so much yet phrase it so simply that I could understand what he was saying! The scope of this work rivals the writings of such luminaries as Uris, Mitchner, and others who steeped themselves in every aspect of their characters' lives and the history of their time; whether past present, or future! For many authors this is the praise they seek! However, because Struse intertwined Scripture, international intrigue, and the uncertainty of the times we live in to heighten the tension and keep the reader on the edge of their seat, what is now a book, might one day be an amazing movie!
Always writing about choices and how God can help us change, Paula Rose Michelson wrote the Amazon Best Selling Christian self-help book "How Did We Become Angry?" That book and her three sweet Christian fictions with a Messianic twist and a hint of history: "Beginning Anew: The Naomi Chronicles" and "Casa de Naomi: The House of Blessing, Books One and Two", are available on Amazon.
This book is fascinating and informative as well as being a well thought out researched and written mystery/thriller. I read the third book first and reading out of order didn't make this first in the series any less interesting. Now I must make haste to the second. But first, I recommend this book to anyone who enjoins a good book. Thank you, William, for writing it.
When Zane Harrison, a Christian college student from Texas, begins research for a college paper to verify that chapter 9 of the book of Daniel refers to the coming of Jesus, he is swept into a web of intrigue that circles the globe and tests his own faith.
Darius Zarindast has set the stage to control the world's fresh water supply, and when he suddenly appears on the international scene and calls a press conference in Dubai to announce new technology that will convert sea water into potable water at a rate sufficient to supply half of the world's population, the world's financial markets are rocked. However, it is Zarindast's unveiling of a tablet at this conference that he claims proves that Nehemiah and Ezra were contemporaries of Artaxerxes that grabs Harrison's attention. If Zarindast's claims concerning the tablet are accurate, Daniel 9 cannot refer to the coming of Jesus, and current Christian thinking will need to be altered.
As Harrison continues to search for answers concerning Daniel 9, he joins archeologist Rachael Neumann on a dig near Capernaum where they discover a numerical code that has remained hidden for centuries. This code contains a secret so powerful that it has been guarded for 1900 years and, if made public, could change the thinking of the entire human race. If the world is to benefit from the 13th Enumeration, however, Harrison will have to overcome powerful forces determined to keep the secret.
At last, a Christian novel that will appeal to men as well as women! While anyone who enjoys stories packed with action and suspense told from a Christian perspective will enjoy "The 13th Enumeration", this novel is one of the few books of Christian fiction that deals primarily with male characters. In addition, the men are portrayed as real men who enjoy sports, rock climbing and other male-dominated activities. The reader will find a cast of strong males who love Jesus and live their lives accordingly.
Thoughtful and provocative, "The 13th Enumeration" will keep you intrigued. Buy "The 13th Enumeration" for yourself, and after you read it, pass it on to the man in your life. He will thank you for it.
Written with the fast paced style reminiscent of Dan Brown or Robert Ludlum, The 13th Enumeration will keep you on the edge of your seat. William Struse has developed strong, passionate characters, set in a time and place that speaks to many hearts. I look forward to his next work with anticipation...
