What would you do if one Sunday while sitting in church you were filled with an intense pressure – an intense rightness – and a conviction that you must do what you consider the hardest thing you’ve ever been asked to do? That is exactly the situation the characters in The Turning find themselves facing. One by one they heed the conviction and turn – being faithful with no idea where it will lead.
Conversely. what if you finally gained the chance at an opportunity you’d striven for your entire life – would you go for it – whatever it took? Several of the characters in The Turning face this choice as well.
Evil vs. Good
Trent vs. John
Culture vs. Church
Hope is Dead vs. God is Not Dead
Where do you stand? What would you do? What would the world be like if we were quiet, listened for that still small voice, and acted on what it said?
I’ll be pondering the many messages in The Turning for a long time
This is a five-star, thought-provoking read. I was so impressed with the book, I gave it to my husband to read. He came to me later and said, “This book you gave me? I don’t like it.” I looked at him quizzically. He smiled, “I LOVE it!” You, too, will love the book and you’ll read and re-read it. Davis Bunn has done it again!
I received a complimentary copy of The Turning from River North Fiction in exchange for my honest review.
