Edify Media: The Turning by Davis Bunn #grow4christ #bookreview

About the Book:

A voice resonated from a distance and somehow from within. Against all earthly logic, it carried a divine command. And five very different people knew they were summoned to obey.

Their actions were demanding, but not particularly grand. Only later would they see a pattern emerge – one that links their tasks together and comes to challenge the cultural direction of the nation. They realize that one small personal response unveiled a new realm of moral responsibility. And this affirmation of everyday hope captures the attention of millions.But power and money are at stake. Malicious elements soon align themselves to counter the trend. To succeed they must also undermine its source. Can we really believe that God speaks to people today? Surely this must be dismissed as superstition or delusion. These well-intentioned but misguided individuals should not be allowed to cast our society back into the Dark Ages.

The public debate and media frenzy place an unprecedented spotlight on knowing and doing God’s will. The five encounter threats, but try to remain steadfast in their faith. Had God indeed imparted wisdom on selected individuals? Is this sweep of events part of his divine purpose?

The movement may herald a profound renewal – one that some are calling The Turning…

My Opinion:


I wasn’t quite sure at first how I was going to like the book – taking place over the span of 12 days and covering places such as Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Manhattan and others it was sort of jumping around but even with that the book flowed nicely and once I got settled in with it I began to enjoy it and get swept up in the story of five very different people who are called, they believe by God, to fight against some strong media powers.  I’m a modern day Believer that does believe that the Lord still speaks to each of us – and while for one it may be audible sound, for others it can be a breeze or an action of another – but He is still speaking and that is what these five are about to see manifest itself through them.  Not to mention evil can take on any shape it wants – the local biker or the rich media tycoon – Satan can use them all.


I wish I could find more words to describe the book, it’s not in my usual genre to read, it’s definitely a book that those who think miracles are dead will re-think that but it’s not a spine tingling suspense book either.  It does remind me of another of my favorite male Christian suspense authors but not so much that it stands on it’s own.  If you are open to seeing how the Lord can work and you enjoy a little suspense in your books then this it – I’m hoping that a second one will be soon to follow as I’d like to see where this group ends up as the persecution bears down on them and the stories of those who are affected by their message of the Gospel.
