OVERVIEW

Every time I say that I really don’t care for science fiction, I read something like American Omens and realize that with the right book, I totally enjoy it. Travis Thrasher has done a great job of giving us an end-times book set in 2038 complete with an abundance of high-tech ideas for the future and the subterfuge of Christians being persecuted in a society where it seems the government knows all. A mysterious prophet (who really knows his identify?) is assembling a team to assist in battling for transparency at the top of the pyramid. “The Reckoner has come to wake up America”.

Several scenarios are going on at the same time and although they come together at the conclusion of the book, the reader must pay close attention to keep all characters straight. There is a definite Christian worldview in American Omens but the author does not hit you over the head with it, making it a great choice to share with an unsaved friend who loves futuristic science fiction.
