Hastening begins a two-volume saga that could do for mobilizing the church what Steve's earlier book, T4T, did for multiplying new disciples and churches. I commend it to you with great enthusiasm! --David Garrison, author of A Wind in the House of Islam
Everyone loves a well told thriller! I do, and so does Steve Smith. He has woven a beautiful tale in this fictional telling of real life drama. The pace and passion in Hastening helps get the message across—with impact. It's a must read! --Floyd McClung, author of Follow: A Simple and Profound Call to Live Like Jesus
Christians who enjoy reading something wholesomely different will find Steve Smith's mystery novel both informative and strategically focused on current challenges facing Christ's kingdom-builders. You may find it a bit jarring. Most of us need to be shaken up once in a while to keep focused on what Christ has commissioned His followers to do. --George Patterson, author of Come Quickly Dawn: A Training Novel
About the Author
Steve Smith, Th.D., planted a church in L.A. similar to the one in this book. For the last two decades he has led others in starting movements among unreached people groups around the globe. His book with Ying Kai on starting movements—T4T: A Discipleship Re-Revolution—gives practical helps on implementing Biblical principles of movements. It is a best-seller, translated into more than 20 languages.

The book takes the reader through [what starts as] three plots that are wonderfully woven together. The main plot was beautifully crated and thought out in taking the reader through the process of "discovering" the No Place Left vision themselves. While it is a fictional work it has many real life implications. It has really re-fueled my passion and drive for the No Place Vision and desire to be that final gneration which hastens the day of our Lord's return.
To any missionary or church planter: I would highly suggest 2 things:
1.) You personally read this, I think it was good for my soul to be reminded of the end vision. I think it was also good to receive this vision in a new and less "instructional" manner.
2.) Give this to your short term teams, prayer partners and supporters. This will be a way to really vision cast and light a spark in their hearts for what you are doing!
The story pacing was really good and the dialogue banter was easy to follow. If I was a non-believer reading this I would totally find some of the references bordering on Christian propaganda. However, when you realize the goal was to fictionalize what many mission agencies are seeing happen around the world, it's easy to look past the "forced" references. I am looking forward to reading the second book when it is published!
It's uniqueness lies in the clear explanation and strong motivation for finishing what Jesus left for us to do.
You will enjoy reading this book and come away pondering what you should be doing during these crucial days.
The story was not very gripping at the start, the plot and characters are not too engaging, but despite these flaws the narrative does build solidly to some truly touching moments.
Some generation will be the last, why not ours?
