Katia and Devin, friends and members of The Excelsiors are exploring the local terrain one day when they cone across an abandoned church. Living there, they find four mysterious men. Peter, Paul, Simon and John talk strangely and Katia finds herself entrances by their words.In this superb novella--length book, John Reinhard Dizon takes us to a post-apocalyptic world where, with little hope or faith remaining, we read that God has sent four of his apostles to earth in order to help humanity restore not only their world, but also their faith.
Katia, Devin and their friends soon begin to trust the four wise apostles and the old abandoned church becomes a rallying point for the rebirth of belief in God and Christianity.
There are plenty of obstacles to be faced along the way as the rival gang, The Zodiacs launch an attack on the peaceful Excelsiors, who, led by their own charismatic leader, Mark Excelsior, decide to hit back in kind. The apostles, take everything in their stride as they seek to bring the young people back into the fold of God's community, and through the young people, they hope to reach out to the parents, the older residents of the town, and to bring about peace and reconciliation.
Although fairly short, the author has managed to pack in a great amount of detail and, having read a number of Mr. Dizon's book in the past, I was surprised at the power he instills in the word of God as relayed to the people of one small town by the apostles. A really entertaining and thought-provoking read, that will have you wondering just how the story will pan out, and whether the apostles will succeed in their mission in a time of such modern day strife and materialism.
Highly recommended reading.
