    Compelling and very well written tale of the near future.

    This is an excellent book and is set in the near future. Matthew Bridger is President of the United States and he faces many severe situations. Terrorist strikes have killed thousands of US citizens on US soil. International stress is huge, and suddenly oil supplies are disrupted. Politicians are moving against the president. How will President Bridger deal with this? Interweaved and well told is the story about Bryson Lawe a Secret Service Agent. Exciting story lines and very believable situations. Superb secondary characters. Some of the cast of characters are sinister and the supernatural elements are well done by Johnson. One character, Randall Sullivan believes that after he survives a terrorist attack he can now communicate with the dead, but just who is in control in these encounters? In some ways 'A Form of Godliness' is written in the same genre as '1984' or 'Brave New World' in that Shane Johnson looks at current situations and follows them to their logical and unnerving conclusions. The descriptions of events and the detailed way Johnson writes paints vivid and thought provoking images. Johnson also has great dialogue and the story flows smoothly. I had trouble putting the book down. The cliff hanger ending leaves me eagerly awaiting Shane Johnson's next book!
