Be Still, And Know That I Am God,,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Be Still (Kindle Edition)
As far as I can determine, this is Pamela Young's debut novel. She has done a good job and I look forward to her next work.
In this story, angels start to appear to certain people over the world delivering the same message:
"...do not be afraid. God loves you and has chosen you to deliver a message. He wants you to tell them that the Lord, your God , has loved His people but they have not loved Him. He wants you to tell His people to prepare themselves for their time is at hand."
Emmy-winning television reporter Amanda Fox hears of the reports but, ever the skeptic, dismisses them. But as more and more reports surface from all over the world, she decides to investigate who is really behind these allegations.
It is only when an angel tells a young girl on dialysis that there will be 3 earthquakes, in Korea, New York and Iran that people to take this message seriously, even more so when these earthquakes happen.
Running alongside of this is the discovery of the Wilson comet which is on collision course with earth and it only takes a short time for the connection to be made that if people do not head the message of the angels and of God, then this comet will collide with the earth and destroy all life.
I won't spoil the plot by going any further.
There is a great message here and Young has done a great job is depicting this. However, I feel there were a few plot developments that could have been worked better, namely the outcome and demise of the Phoenix World Alliance at the end of the story; this is not mentioned, the Alliance seem to just disappear, the demise of Reverend John Winters could have been fleshed out more and occurred at the end of the story and not where Young has placed it, and that the outcome of the comet could have been more dramatic in showing the power and working of God.
I also felt the end arrived too soon and was over too quickly. It ended very positively though which was an appropriate way to end this.
Recommended. I look forward to her next novel.
