Edge-of-your-seat suspense...and something more...! A father trapped in a terrible underwater accident. A son desperate to do something--anything--to save him. A digital read-out ticking down toward certain death--and a fate more horrible still...For Alan Rockaway, his teenaged son Jeff, and Alan's new bride, Jenny, it's been little more than a fascinating tourist submarine excursion, a leisurely end to a weeklong church-couples' cruise. Then the horrifying crash and the plunge toward the unknown...Everything Alan has assumed about himself, about what awaits him in the future, is flipped upside down. In the ultimate rescue operation, life or death is just the beginning! -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

During the first part of the book, I was almost ready to call it quits due to the message it seemed to be conveying. It appeared to be giving the impression that a Christian can accept Christ and after that just do pretty much anything that he/she wants to do without consequences.
I even discussed it with a Christian friend and told him that I did not know if I would even finish the book. I decided to give it some more time, and I am glad that I did.
The story features Denver mega church pastor Alan Rockaway who seems to be far away from God. He divorced his wife (without Scriptural cause) and then got involved with a young woman from the worship team. He had convinced himself that it was God's will. It was at this point that I thought this was going in a bad direction.
Fortunately, the authors surpised me and had some solid Christian teaching interwoven with an exciting plot.
When I again spoke to my friend a day later, he asked again who the author was. I told him that one was named 'Bevere'. He asked, 'John Bevere?' When I told him that it was, he said that he could have told me that the plot would not continue in the way that it seemed. He was quite familiar with that author and told me about a couple of his other books, which he indicated are very solid. So, not only did I end up enjoying this story, but I got a couple of other recommendations that I am looking forward to reading soon.
This is definitely worth getting. It is very thought provoking. It will likely cause readers to do some self examination and hopefully commit to not being merely nominal Christians.
Belief in God is not enough -- James says, faith without works is dead and even the demons believe and tremble. Repentance and obedience is key to making Jesus Lord of your life. Saying a prayer and sitting in church no more makes you a Christian than sitting in a garage makes you a car.
Second off, the story is really needed in our generation, for we are a people who take grace for granted on occasion and we really need to be living our lives as if we will face God someday.
Some people have gotten hung up on the once saved always saved issue and I understand that, but it is easy to miss the message of this story if you let the hang up get you. The author playing God in this story may or may not be how God judges people in real life, but we must understand that no matter our view on once saved always saved, that we all must face God someday and give an account of what we did with our lives. I believe the audio series brings this out beautifully and it has made me think.
Being a Christian is a daily thing, not a one-time prayer at the alter thing. I hope we all live our lives each day knowing that God will see it all. Thank you for this series!
