Book Tour ~ Wisdom Hunter & Shadow Government

Today it's crazy kind of weather outside. Wind, snow/rain mix. Brrr. The perfect kind of weather to curl up with a book, a blanket and hot cup of tea.

Publisher Summary:
Pastor Jason Faircloth knows what he believes. His clear faith, in fact, is why he is one of the most prominent pastors in Atlanta. He relies on it to discipline his daughter, his wife, his church. He prays daily that others would come to see God’s ways as he does.

And it is about to cost him everything.

Groping for answers in the face of tragedy, Jason begins a search for the only family he has left: the granddaughter kept hidden from him. Soon he finds himself on an international adventure that will take him straight into the depths of his soul. He is determined not to fail again.

A fast-paced suspense novel rich in spiritual depth, Wisdom Hunter explores what it means to break free of Christian legalism—and discover why grace can mean the difference between life and death.

Author Bio:
Randall Arthur is the bestselling author of Jordan’s Crossing and Brotherhood of Betrayal. He and his wife have served as missionaries to Europe for over thirty years. From 1976 till 1998, he lived in Norway and Germany as a church planter. Since 2000, he has taken numerous missions teams from the United States on trips all over Europe. Arthur is also the founder of the AOK (Acts of Kindness) Bikers’ Fellowship, a group of men who enjoy the sport of motorcycling. He and his family live in Atlanta, Georgia.

My Thoughts:
Wisdom Hunter hooked me in from the beginning to the end. It's fast paced, didn't slow down and kept me turning the pages. Written by a missionary who's been in the field for many many years it is a thought provoking story that made me question and think where in my own life am I being legalistic and unreasonable and/or sinful and where I need to let God have control. The story is just the kind I love, one that raises emotions in me, gets me involved in the characters and gets me thinking.

Thanks to Waterbrook Multnomah for providing this book for review.

Second in the Action Blog Tour was this book:

Publisher Summary:
Security cameras, surveillance of private financial transactions, radio frequency spy chips hidden in consumer products, eavesdropping on e-mail correspondence and phone calls, and Internet tracking. No one is protected, and privacy is a thing of the past.

An ultra-secret global elite, functioning as a very real shadow government, controls technology, finance, international law, world trade, political power, and vast military capabilities. These unnamed, unrivaled leaders answer to no earthly authority, and they won’t stop until they control the world.
In Shadow Government, prophecy expert Grant Jeffrey removes the screen that, up to now, has hidden the work of these diabolical agents. Jeffrey reveals the biblical description of Satan’s global conquest and identifies the tools of technology that the Antichrist will use to rule the world.

Readers will have their eyes opened to the real power that is working behind the scenes to destroy America and merge it into the coming global government. Armed with this knowledge, readers will be equipped to face spiritual darkness with the light of prophetic truth.

Author Bio:
Grant R. Jeffrey is the internationally known prophecy researcher, Mideast expert, and author of Countdown to the Apocalypse, The New Temple and the Second Coming, The Next World War, and twenty other best-selling books. He is also the editor of the Prophecy Study Bible. His popular television program, Bible Prophecy Revealed, airs weekly on TBN. Jeffrey earned his master’s and PhD degrees from Louisiana Baptist University. He and his wife, Kaye, live in Toronto.

My Thoughts:
This is not normally the type of book that I pick up. I actually said yes so that my husband, who loves prophetic stuff, could read it. I've always been the happily oblivious, hide my head in the sand kind of person. But I believe gone are those days and we are at a time when I can no longer do that. I picked the book up just to glance at it and I was drawn in. Mr. Jeffries writes in laymans language as he goes through the various things that are a reality in our world today and how they are being used or being set up to be used to keep surveillance in the prophesied one world government. While I have to read it in small chunks, I think it's important to know what is going on in order to have intelligent conversation with others about these subjects. This book is perfect for that.

Thanks again to Walterbrook Multnomah for providing it for review.
