Good things said, if you are looking for a book that will go down as a classic this is not it. The story needed to be tightened up and fine-tuned.The plot-line has some things in it that should have been corrected by the proof-readers. (Maybe John needs a new editor.) For instance - why would a ten year old boy be allowed play outside alone when terrorists are looking to kill him? Why, when one finds out their family is in mortal danger, would he not call them immediately to warm them? Why when your cell phone is your lifeline do you leave it in the car? Why did the news crew have to give obvious GPS coordinates to a "geek" to find out what the numbers meant? Why did the FBI and Homeland Security disappear from the storyline? What intelligent person thinks the President of the USA is the one responsible for starting wars and sending troops over seas? Are they not aware on how our government works? But even with the story problems the book was enjoyable.
Overall I enjoyed the book. The biblical worldview was obvious to the reader and the conversations between David and Frank were interesting. There's a fine line sometimes between a contrived message and the message being part of the story. This book was walking that line. I would have liked the ending of the book to not stop so suddenly. The plot-line was mostly complete but the characters needed to have closure. Seemed like it needed an extra chapter.
A Kindle Note: Chapter 22 shows up twice. Not a big deal but it should be corrected.

David Chance was not born with an extra sense. He admittedly would be the last person to possess it. When he began receiving messages, he thought he was having serious mental problems. But when their warnings began happening as stated, he became driven to follow each lead with the hopes he could prevent the first message from happening: the assassination of the President of the United States.
Having the secrets of intrigue dropped on him planted him and his family into harm's way. When the messages began leading him closer to home, he had to sort and balance where he put his trust. Who could best protect his family while he is bearing down on the perpetrators? Were those he shared his messages with truly the ones he could trust? And, of course, will he be able to navigate through it all in time to save the President before he got himself killed?
Hileman expertly kept the tension through the last chapter. Very good read.
