4.0 out of 5 stars High Impact, 19 May 2005
This review is from: The Shock of Your Life (Paperback)
The premise of the book is that there has been a traffic accident and three teenagers die - Dan, Becky and Emma. In the first three chapters we then look at judgement day from each of their different perspectives. Dan was a 'non Christian', Becky a 'lukewarm' Christian, and Emma a 'redhot Christian' before they died. We get an insight into each of their feelings at facing God and looking back on their lives, and are given a thorough teaching on judgement day at the same time. Although 'thorough teaching' maybe a misleading phrase - the book is a great read and very easy to comprehend. The author used to write for the Times as a sports journalist and it has that brisk style of a reporter. It is also hard hitting - it really made me think about how I'll think and feel when i have to face Jesus on the final day - and the fact that everyone I know will have to face him as well. The book pulls no punches, and could possibly be accused of being a little preachy at times - you can certainly tell the book was born out of the author's visit to the brownsville revival. The last chapter is a look at heaven and what it will be like. I think reading this book is an excellent way to practically "Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth." Colossians 3:2 It certainly makes you really think about stuff. I would highly recommend it - especially to teenagers.
