    The true persecutions of Christians have already started, so far it is happening to Christians in other countries, but if you think Christians are safe in America, start listening more carefully to the news. Just this week i heard a "liberal" news reporter say that Christians are as dangerous as Muslum jhadist. A time is coming, soon, that admitting you are a Christian will be to put your life at risk, but not admitting you are a Christian will put your soul at risk. So you better know exactly who you put your trust in. My body may be killed by those who hate Christ but my soul will be with the one my heart loves.

    Another thought provoking novel by Cliff Ball!  What would happen if Christians were rounded up and sent to "re-education camps"?  Some Christians have been getting ready for this day, taking lessons from doomsday preppers- making bunkers, boobytrapping their farms, and stockpiling weapons and food.  The militia is sent to battle and roundup these "rebels".  After they are placed in the camps, the Christians show mercy to each other in taking care of the elderly and uplifting each other- ministering by example to their keepers.  They are just left there until the collapse of the U.S., when the guards are told to lock the doors and just let them die.  Meanwhile, leaders in government are seen manipulating events and each other in the quest to become ruler of the world.  Does the evilest man win?  Which one is it?  I was given a copy of this book in return for my honest review.

    Another Eye Opening Book by Cliff Ball

    Times of Trial can be read as a stand-alone or with Times of Trouble. Like Times of Trouble, Times of Trial is about the end-times and persecution of Christians in the United States.

    The president of the United States is a hater of Christians and Jews and will stop at nothing to make sure he remains the president. He and his equally power hungry goons implement Agenda 21. (Now if you don't know anything about Agenda 21 - which is very real check it out here. There are also lots of other listings about it.)

    Cliff has again written a very insightful novel involving end-time prophecy and current events. This is a very easy book to read but don't let the ease of it detract you from the reality of what could actually take place.

    All right, now I have a couple of critiques... though Cliff has done better in filling in the plot with detail, his dialog is still a bit choppy and stilted. I only say this, because I know how difficult it is to write dialog. So Cliff, this is just to encourage you to write your dialog more fluidly. That is probably the only thing I can think of that may be a distraction for the reader.

    I appreciate Cliff's dedication to get his work out for the public to read. Since he is a self-publisher, it can be a bit harder to get the word out. So I am more than thrilled to review for him.

    What is the book about?

    An Arizona church that takes care of all it's members is is dying out. The second family who is in charge at the church has decided to head to Wyoming to escape the persecution of Christians.

    What did I think of the book?

    I've never really thought about the idea of Christians being persecuted for their beliefs, and this book shows how scary it would be if it actually happened. Christians aren't usually the ones that you would imagine being persecuted since they are so overwhelming in population, but it's been done before to other religions so I suppose it's not all that unfathomable.
