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.

For those who give me a negative vote on my review please comment and let me know why. I'd like to improve my reviews so they can be helpful to those who read them. Please understand I choose not to give a synopsis of the book because it's already given at the top of the books page. In doing so too many reviewers give away too much of the plot. Thank you.
When David Chance--his name is PERFECT for this book--starts seeing messages from some supernatural source, his life turns upside down. He's just an intern at a news channel who edits tapes. He's not equipped for the dangerous situations he's thrown into.
Yet, he feels a strong pulling to do what the messages tell him, while trying to figure out if they might be coming from God AND while trying to keep his family safe.
This book has many great twists and turns. It is a very well written suspense. For once, I did NOT have it totally figured out until the author wanted me to. To me, that's the great suspense. I also liked that the author didn't wrap up all the lose ends, but gave me enough to be satisfied with the conclusion of the story.
The characters were interesting. I got enough insight into their personalities to understand their motivation for what they did. Having Karen's point of view also added insight into the drama unfolding, but it still left David the start of the novel.
There are strong Christian themes in the book, but they don't overpower the story line. I think if I were in David's shoes, I might ask many of the same questions.
If you like Christian Suspense, then I recommend picking up this book. You won't be disappointed.
What could have been interesting became sickening, and I erased the book from my Kindle. The story might have improved, but I wasn't going to hang around waiting for it to happen.
