THE TERRORIST

He has also learned of the stones. He too must find them—but for much darker reasons. As the mastermind of a deadly plot that will soon kill millions, he has had a series of dreams that instruct him to first find the stones. Everything else is in place. The wrath of Allah is poised and ready to be unleashed. All that remains is for him to obtain the stones.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Strong writing, edgy violence and a made-for-the-movies sensibility characterize this thriller from CBA veteran author and film director Myers. When successful megachurch pastor Daniel Lawsons wife, Jill, is murdered in the Istanbul Spice Bazaar while on a church tour, he is left holding a mysterious stone dating from Old Testament times, which represents one of the 12 tribes of Israel. When all 12 stones are brought together with two others, they are believed to enable the voice of God to be heard. Lawson takes a leave of absence from his church, then teams up with his alienated teenage son, Tyler; clumsy archeologist Dr. Helen Zimmerman; and Nayra Fazil, a Muslim university student, to find the remaining stones. The suspense builds as Ibrahim el-Magd, an Islamic terrorist, also attempts to gather the stones so he might determine the will of Allah before unleashing a horrific act of global mayhem. The abundance of violence (a young thiefs hand amputated, a womans breast sliced off, an attempted female circumcision) may shock CBA readers, but Myers uses it to show the potential dangers of religious fundamentalism. Lawsons grief over his wifes death seems a bit short-lived and, as with many suspense novels, some events require a generous suspension of disbelief. However, Myers fleshes out the multifaceted character of Ibrahim el-Magd in a way that sheds light on his motivations; the story is replete with action; and the book admirably avoids an implausibly neat ending. Myerss popular reputation and the books link to current events will likely woo CBA readers. (July) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
The best-selling author of Eli offers an intriguing premise: What if you could hear the voice of God? What if you actually could see His face? These questions haunt two very different men as they seek 12 supernatural stones that, according to the Bible, represent the Tribes of Israel and together make the voice of God audible. On their quest in the Holy Land, Rev. Daniel Lawson and his college-aged son, Tyler, try to reestablish their relationship and come to terms with the murder of Daniel's wife. At the same time, Ibrahim el-Magd, leader of an Islamic terrorist cell, wants the stones to receive confirmation from Allah that his destructive plans against the United States will be successful. Daniel, Ibrahim, and their faiths collide in a gripping denouement that is as beautful as it is frightening. The comparisons between Christianity and Islam are thought-provoking, but the negative portrayal of Islam mars this otherwise suspenseful and action-packed effort. Still, Myers's legion of fans and readers who enjoyed Michael R. Phillips's A Rift in Time will be thrilled. For all collections. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

Read an Excerpt

"Jill . . ."

She gave him a brief nod, indicating that she'd heard.

"Come on," he urged, "the rest of the group is waiting." Her brief nod was followed by a brief smile, indicating that she'd heard but was in no particular rush to do anything about it. "Jill . . ."

Another nod, another smile.

He shook his head, frustrated and amused. After twenty-three years of marriage he knew the futility of trying to hurry his wife when she wasn't interested in being hurried. He sighed and glanced around the tiny shop, one of a hundred stalls squeezed next to each other inside Istanbul's Spice Bazaar. Every inch of floor space was covered and every shelf was filled with spilling bags and open barrels of nuts, candies, fruit, seeds, pods, stems, leaves--some fresh, some dried; some ground, some whole--more spices and herbs than he'd ever seen or smelled in his life.

The aromas were dizzying, as were the bazaar's sounds and colors. A menagerie of vendors beckoning the passing crowd to "come, see my jewelry . . . perfume for your lady friend . . . a souvenir for your children . . . beautiful key chain to ward off evil eye ... finest gold in all Turkey . . . natural pirinc, good for much romance . . . Visa, Mastercard accepted . . . come, just to talk, we have some tea, my friend, just to talk."

It was that last phrase that did them in yesterday. They'd barely left the hotel lobby before a merchant was escorting them into one of the city's thousands of oriental rug shops. They'd made it clear they were not buying. The rugs were beautiful but there was no room in their house nor their budget. The owner nodded in sym-pathetic understanding. But after two hours of chitchat, pictures of a brother who lived in America, and more than one glass of hot tea, they found themselves viewing his wares and feeling obligated to at least purchase something--which they did. Seven hundred and fifty dollars' worth of something! But today was another day--he hoped. "Jill . . ." She nodded. She smiled. And she continued talking to the leather-faced shopkeeper. The bartering was good-natured. Jill had purchased a quarter kilo of halvah--a deadly rich concoction of ground sesame seed and honey. She'd already paid for it, but before passing the bag to her, the old-timer tried to persuade her to buy more. "I'm afraid it will make me even fatter," she said, pretending to pat an imaginary belly. "A woman of your beauty, she could eat a hundred kilo and it would make no difference." Jill laughed and the man threw Daniel a wink with his good eye, making it clear the flirting was all in fun.

Daniel smiled back. It was obvious the fellow liked Jill. Then again, everyone liked Jill. The reason was simple. Everyone liked Jill because she liked everyone. From the crankiest congregation member to the most obnoxious telemarketer, his wife always found some-thing to like. And it wasn't a put-on. The sparkle in her eyes and delight in her voice was always genuine. Unlike Daniel, who had to work harder at his smiles and often thought his social skills were clunky, Jill was blessed with a spontaneous joy. And that joy was the light of his life. A day didn't go by that he didn't thank God for it-- even as high school sweethearts, she a cheerleader, he a tall, gangly second-stringer for the basketball team. He could never figure out what she saw in him, then . . . or now. But he never stopped being grateful that she did.

As the years of marriage deepened their love, she had moved from someone who always touched his heart to someone who had become his heart. In many ways she had become his center, a constant point around which much of his life revolved. He cherished this woman. And though he seldom said it, her heart and love for others was a quiet challenge and model that he never ceased striving to emulate.

Yes, her love for people was a great gift--except when they were on a tight schedule, as they were now, as they always seemed to be. Because no matter how friendly you are, it takes more than a sincere smile to keep a forty-five-hundred-member church afloat. "Jill . . ." He motioned to his watch, a Rolex. It had been presented to him by the elders for twenty years of faithful service. Twenty hard-fought years of sweating and building the church out of nothing. Originally he'd hated the watch. Felt it was too flashy for a pastor. But because of the politics involved, he'd forced him-self to wear it. You don't keep a forty-five-hundred-member church afloat without understanding politics.

"This I do for you," the shopkeeper was saying. His good eye briefly darted to someone or something behind them. "I sell you one-quarter kilo and give you an extra quarter for free."

"No, no, no . . ." Jill laughed, suspecting another ploy. "Just one-quarter kilogram, that's all we need."

"No." The man's voice grew firm. "I have made up my mind." "But we only have enough to buy one-quarter."

"This I have heard." The shopkeeper spoke faster. He turned his back to them, momentarily blocking their view. "But for you, I give a most special gift." When he turned to them, he was already wrapping it in the same slick, brown paper he had used before.

"Please," Jill said, laughing, "you don't understand." Again the man's eye flickered to somewhere behind them. "I understand everything," he said, forcing a chuckle. "It is free. I make no joke." He dropped the item into the bag and handed it to her.

"But I can't. I mean, that is very generous, but I can't accept--" "You must," he said, smiling. "It is the Turkish way." He glanced behind them and spoke even faster. "It is an old Islamic custom."

    A Modern Day Christian Indiana Jones!

    In the Old Testament, God divided His people into twelve tribes. Each one represented by a colored stone worn in the breastplate woven in gold that the high priest would wear as he entered the Holy of Holies, the sacred temple of God where the Ark of the Covenant was kept and where he would atone for the sins of the people of Israel.

    Pastor Daniel Lawson is touring Istanbul with his wife Jill as their church is visiting Israel. When stopping to purchase some honey and ground sesame seed when the merchant stops and see a man begin approaching. In a hushed voice he wraps up a package and hands it to Jill and her husband and begs for them to leave. He is abruptly taken by the police and dragged off. Only a man remains staring at Jill and her husband.

    When they return to their hotel, they discover there isn't any honey and sesame seed but a brilliant palm size emerald with Hebrew writing on it. As they get ready to depart their hotel, Jill rushes back in to get a shawl to cover her shoulders. When she is delayed a bit too long, an aid comes to get Daniel. When they return to their room, Daniel finds his wife has been stabbed and is dying leaving him a few words of a dream she had that will alter his life forever.

    Ibrahim el-Magd is a man to be feared. A devote follower of the Qur'an, he is planning what he believes with be Allah's Day of Wrath, an unleashing of a jihad that will leave millions of non-believers dead. After 9/11, this will be the final battle of the infidels. Now with everything set to go with biological and chemicals weapons awaiting his words, he is waiting for the Voice of Allah to confirm his timing. With four of the stones in possession, he is following those that have the remaining 8 stones. Legend has it that whoever possess those 12 stones, will hear the voice of God and be able to know the future outcomes of any war.

    Doctor Helen Zimmerman has been working with the Israeli government to excavate more land to search for missing artifacts in hopes of finding the Ark of the Covenant that she believes the Knights Templar were in charge of protecting. When a colleague tells her that she is to go to America and befriend a Pastor who seems to be in possession of a great archaeological find, one of the 12 stones of the Tribes of Israel, if she doesn't, all of her permits to uncover treasure will be pulled.

    In the novel, The Face of God by Bill Myers, we follow a rag tag team of hearty adventurers much like ourselves in search of the God's truth and His purpose. Much like a modern day Indiana Jones, Pastor Daniel Lawson has visions from God defining his purpose in searching for the stones of the tribes of Israel. Following the predictions from his dying wife, he believes if he finds them, he will hear the Voice of God and rediscover his lost passion.

    I received this book compliments of Pump Up The Book for my honest review and once again, Bill Myers doesn't disappoint. You find yourself, living in the hottest desert climates, searching underwater caves, and blinding sandstorms while slowly discovering God's secret for all of us along the way. Action packed by the page, this book rates a 5 out of 5 stars. It's left me wanting even more and can't wait to pick up the next book from Bill Myers. For those of you that love action, adventure, mystery and Bible artifacts and treasures, than this book is for you.

    Would you know God if you were to hear him??

    The Face Of God is a spiritual mystery thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Pastor Daniel Lawson is on a church pilgrimage with his wife Jill, when she is brutally murdered. Her last words will continue to haunt Daniel and set him on the course he finds before him. Before her death, Jill is given a stone with ancient inscriptions upon it and was told her husband would one day hear the voice of God. Daniel, along with his estranged son, Tyler, follow the trail that will lead them to a prophecy in which one day, all the stones of the 12 tribes of Israel will be reunited and change the destiny of the world. However, Daniel isn't the only one searching for the stones, members of the Islamic movement under a jihad are also searching for them. They have a plan to destroy over 200 million inhabitants of the earth in order to cleanse it of the infidels. Daniel doesn't know who his friends and his foes are as he is removed from his element and placed into unknown lands and customs. Dr. Helen Zimmerman, is a Middle Eastern archaeologist, an expert in her field, who is commissioned by the MOSSAD to befriend Daniel and his son and stop them from accomplishing their goals, but as she comes to know them, will she be able to continue her mission? Nayra Fazil is the daughter of one of the elite Islamic leaders and she has been honoured to serve for Allah in helping the religious cause, by becoming acquainted with Tyler and his dad. However, as she becomes more immersed in her duty, she finds her faith questioned and she is torn between what she knows is right and what she has been taught. As the parties involved move closer to their fates, will Daniel gather the stones before the world ends or will he become a warrior of God and set things right? I really liked this story, it has enough violence to make it real and the bumbling antics of Helen were hilarious. I found all the characters to be believable and I highly enjoyed their interaction in the story. I enjoyed the pace and flow of the story, even though there were a couple of issues with time lines, the story was still great to read. I loved the history aspect of the stones and wished the author had given just a bit more information concerning each of the tribes of Israel. I thought how each of the characters came to grips with their own personal spiritual journey was well written and the grace in which God's touches each of their lives most thought provoking. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good religious historical mystery.

    Excellent

    I was a bit skeptical at first because the title included 'for fans of Frank Peretti' but was hooked by the first chapter and just bought another book by this author. His insight and clear, clever way of creating a picture of events is amazing and gripping. An edge of your seat ride from beginning to end! While it is a wild ride, there is such truth in this book that I would call it a long parable rather than fiction. Outstanding, heart-changing and, most of all, a blessing to anyone who reads it.

    Empathy and Truth

    The Face of God is a gripping look into grief, fatherhood, and the synergies/differences between Christianityand Islam, all masterfully rendered by an author who has learned to distinguish shades of gray. Bill Myers is not a writer who leans on the supernatural. Rather, he is one of those rare individuals who understands that everything is spiritual, and that the physical universe that envelopes us is actually the waiting-room for Eternity. If you¿re fond of story, fine writing, well-told relationships, and writers who get the facts straight (and who is not fond of those things?) then you absolutely have to buy this book.

    Good Read

    I've been a fan of Bill Myers for some time, and I always enjoy his books. They include a great mixture of old fashioned theology and scripture, with fascinating fantasy-type 'what if?' elements. This book continues his tradition with a look at the Urim and Thummim and the 12 stones of Israel's tribes, supposedly used by the High Priest's. This book also helps you look at the Muslim faith in a new light and with more understanding. Maybe we shouldn't be thumbing our theological noses at them, but embracing and loving them, trying to help them see the true message of our gospel. Anyways, if you're a Frank Peretti or Bill Myers fan, you wont be dissapointed with this book. Be sure to pick it up :)

    Politically Correct

    Good fictional story and admirable for the 'education' of the Muslim religion, however disappointing for the misrepresentation of the Church history, the eluding of misconduct and the twisting of truth concerning the Catholics. Bill Myers goes far in frustrating the ecumenical movement!
