Book Review: Prophet by R.J.Larson

I thoroughly enjoyed reading R. J. Larson’s new novel, Prophet.

It’s a quick-paced novel with good twists and turns, good character development, and descriptive settings.  It is not a Christian novel, per se, but it is full of scriptural truth shared in an allegorical fashion.  I don’t think the word God or Christ was ever uttered, yet, I clearly heard God speaking through the plot.  It was a powerful reminder to listen for God’s voice, walk in his ways, and follow his truth.  The tales are somewhat reminiscent of the prophetic books in the Old Testament, but woven into a suspenseful story that will leave you captivated.

I was thankful for the list of characters in the front of the book – without that reference, I would have gotten confused with all the strange names.  That was the only thing that slowed me down in devouring the book.

The book would be a good read for adults, teens, and mature preteens.

I’m grateful for this book, which I received from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.  I’ll be watching for Larson’s next novel.
