About the Book:
THE TERRORIST has learned of supernatural stones used by the Old Testament High Priests to hear the audible voice of God. As the mastermind of a deadly plot that will soon kill millions, he has had a series of dreams instructing him to find the stones. Everything else is in place. The wrath of God is poised and ready to be unleashed. All that is stopping him is . . .

THE PASTOR. His wife has been murdered and his faith is crumbling before his very eyes. With his estranged son, he also searches for the stones in hopes they will rekindle his dying faith and love.

With the lives of millions hanging in the balance, these two men of opposing faiths collide in an unforgettable showdown. “The Face of God” is another thrilling and thought-provoking novel by a master of the heart and suspense, C.S. Lewis Honor Award winner, Bill Myers.

My Review:
Okay, this will be a VERY short review. So short that I all I can say is I didn’t finish this book. I couldn’t. I have tried for a week to really get into this book and no matter how hard I try I can’t get into it. There is something that is off, missing so to speak, and I can’t put my finger on it. So, sadly, I am classifying this book as a DNF at this time. That’s not to say, that later on down the road, that I will pick up again and sit down and fly right through it and it may end up being the best book I’ve read in awhile. However, I do encourage everyone to please give this book a try. Everyone’s tastes are different, and while I didn’t like it right now or couldn’t finish it now, there are those of you out there who will love it.
