I picked this one up at the used bookstore and hoped I wasn't purchasing someone else's junk. The premise was intriguing--though a bit misleading on the front jacket statement--and the layout looked good, but I'm often disappointed by Christian fiction. (I keep trying to like it...I really do.)
Okay, this time I wasn't disappointed. I read the first two chapters, testing the waters like a wary swimmer, and next thing I knew, I'd summoned the courage to dive in. Two days later, I surfaced with this treasure clutched firmly in hand and a smile on my face.
Myers built his characters with adequate depth and added enough details regarding paranormal research for me to suspend disbelief. I appreciated his balanced, yet insightful, views of demonic activity and found myself whipping through the pages. The ending left room for a sequel while still wrapping up most of the loose ends, and Myers didn't shy away from showing that spiritual battle does have casualties--on both sides.
Why not five stars?
Though fast-paced and credible, Myers doesn't write with quite the tightness and craft of Peretti or the Thoenes. A number of times he stumbled over point-of-view problems, though not to the point of confusing the story. It was merely a distraction. One an editor could've easily cleaned up.
Myers comes up with some great premises and manages to fill them with practical and allegorical insight. His writing seems to be maturing, and I'll be hunting down his next books with unabashed anticipation.
Next time, I'll dive in without hesitation.

Having been a scientist nearly all of my professional life I found Threshold to be both technically and theoretically accurate. As well as an immaculately researched work it contains a deeply spiritual allegory--for those who care to think beyond the surface.
Having read the previous reviews I could not help but be astonished at the shallowness of one which rated the book with one star, commenting on its lack of substantive content. That reviewer said, for example, "...the attempts to tie theology to paranormal research were simply bizarre." This type of thinking would have undoubtedly labeled John Bunyon's Pilgrim's Progress as the product of a theologically overactive immagination and worthless for its lack of reality. Alegorical thinking, of course, is not for every mind, but is indespensible as a vehicle for conveying the deeper truths of the spirit, which Threshold does without sacrificing the entertainment value of the book. If that is the type of writing Mr. Myers incorporates into his children's books perhaps some of us more "simpleminded" readers who are "avid fan[s] of the Book of Revelation," as the other reviewer terms it, would do well to read Myers' books for children also.
By the way, is there something wrong with being "and avid fan of the Book of Revelation"?

I could tell you a lot about this book. The fact that it shows the thresholds we deal with... on an emotional level; on an intellectual level; on a physical level; and on a spiritual level.
But that's not the point. The point is this... this book will jar your sense of theology, idealogy, and reality.
Maybe you don't like it when the fiction of a story becomes a possible reality. Maybe you're the type to want to have a nice safe outline of events that you can leave with the book when you put it down. Maybe you're one of those people who likes everything to stay "fantasy" and not mess with your "theology."
Then maybe this isn't the book for you.
But if you like to be challenged, stretched, and probed when it comes to what you think about God, all while enjoying a great story along the way, then maybe this IS the book for you.
And maybe... just maybe... you have the courage to read it.
But be warned... you just might end up the better for doing it!

From the very first chapter you get the idea that Bill Myers should stick to kids' books. The same boring character "insights" are repeated over and over and over. You just get so sick of reading the same cliches and overly dramatic descriptions of everything.
As to the story itself, only the most avid fan of the Book of Revelation would find it interesting. It was just all too silly and repetitive.
Moreover, the attempts to tie theology to paranormal research were simply bizarre. In all, the book was just so poorly authored, so boring and tedious, so over the top in far too many places, and so worthless theologically, it probably isn't worth reading.

I ordered two books from Amazon last month. Bill Myers' 'Threshold' and 'The Fist of God' by A.T. Nicholas. I loved both of them so much, I'm going to buy a few more copies to give to my friends. Threshold was well written and it will remind you of Peretti's style. It was a great read. The Fist of God was phenomenal! It blow me away! The storyline was a classic good vs evil plot set during a presidential campaign, but there are some really cool twists throughout the book. The plot unfolds through the eyes of a homicide detective, who becomes a reluctant participant in the bloody battle for souls. A great book!
