Wisdom Hunter and Shadow Government

These books were provided for review by the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.

Wisdom Hunter by Randall Arthur can be purchased here.

About the book:

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.

My thoughts:

I can't believe that I hadn't read this book before since it was originally released in 1991. It's a very fast-paced action-packed novel about too many things that are true to life. I enjoyed it, even though parts of it were upsetting. I liked how the author knit together pieces of the characters lives and gave examples of true redemption. It starts out tragic but ends triumphant. This is a must-read for Christians who are set in their ways and bound by rules and traditions.

About the author:

Grant Jeffrey is back, this time with a shocking glimpse into the arena of government and how they are watching everything we do. While I enjoy his work and research I do tend to think that it might be a little extreme, and extreme is what breeds fear into peoples lives. I can see how the technology that he describes is propelling us towards the end times and the Mark of the Beast, but I find it more exciting than frightening. It's definitely worth reading, but may put some people over the edge (conspiracy theorists and the like). If you can read this type of book and keep your spiritual eyes open then you'll realize it's just another step in the Master's plan.

About the book:

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.
