Deadline by Randy Alcorn

Last night I finished Randy Alcorn’s bood Deadline. This was the first book I read by Randy Alcorn, and I enjoyed it. It had a little flavor of Peretti’s “Darkness Books” when we see what heaven may be like in respect to “The Great Cloud of Witnesses” who intercede for us still on earth. This book also deals with abortion and the media slant on values and morals.

The O’Malley Chronicles – Dee Henderson

I started the year out with Dee Henderson’s The O’Malley Chronicles. I had read the prequeal to the series, Dangers In the Shadows and enjoyed it tremendously, but it didn’t begin to prepare me for this wonderful series.

This six book series covers the lives of 7 adults who are brothers and sisters by choice. As children they end up in Trevor House, a foster care home. When they became adults they made the choice to legally change their last name to O’Malley.

The thing I enjoyed about these books were characters that I could relate to. They had all struggled with idea of a faith in God. It also looked at the different ways to share your faith (and ways not to) with unbelievers.

Book 1 – The Negotiator
Book 2 – The Guardian
Book 3 – The Truth Seeker
Book 4 – The Protector
Book 5 – The Healer
Book 6 – The Rescuer
