John Bevere. I have read a number of his books, and seen numerous DVDs. I absolutely love his teaching and writing style, he is easy to understand, gets right down to the very heart of issues, yet keeps it fully applicable to everyday life. I have not personally read this book, but did listen to the audio cd, that is based on this. The cd was interesting and kept you there till the end, it was more of a story, rather than much of his other teaching, which was not like that. The cd was something that some may enjoy, while others may not. But it did make you think about life It is an end times thing. I would say it would be well worth reading considering the author.
RESCUED - the latest novel by John Bevere and Mark Andrew Olsen - is a voice crying in the wilderness, 'Prepare ye the way of the Lord'. Its challenging story brings to life the reality of heaven and hell. The novel begins in heaven and then flashes back to the lives of a church fellowship on holiday aboard a luxury cruise ship. After a dreadful accident in Barbados, Alan Rockaway - the pastor of Summit Chapel in Denver, USA - and his companions are thrown into the reality of facing death. Where will they end up? They are all believers, or are they? This question becomes vital as they face the great King, the maker of heaven and earth, who as well as the God of love and grace, is also the righteous judge who sees the intent of all hearts and the way we live our lives. RESCUED would have to be one of the most important books I have read. Even though we are saved by grace, this book reminded me that we will have to one day give an account for all our actions. It convicted me of the need to continually reassess the motives of my heart, and whether I am following in Jesus? footsteps in all I do, think and say. After finishing RESCUED, I was prompted to read another John Bevere book, DRIVEN BY ETERNITY, which discusses the same themes but in much more detail. I believe RESCUED is a book that every Christian should read, as it is life changing. I also recommend following up by reading DRIVEN BY ETERNITY.
