    I Liked Reading This Book

    Harrison Quincy Shaw had very little, but his lack of money and material things didn't stop him from giving to others. He cared so much about the less fortunate that even impending danger couldn't keep him from helping them in times of need. Harrison had a heart for people - one woman, in particular. He also had a heart for God, which was why this man, inexperienced in his chosen profession, was determined to give his all as the defense lawyer when J.K. Jarves, a powerful prosecutor who would stoop to anything to win a case, filed suit against Harrison's church. I liked reading this book. It was an intriguing, entertaining, spiritually enlightening page turner. I plan to read more books in The Great Awakenings Series.

    WOW!!

    I just finished Proof by Jack Cavanaugh and Bill Bright. Jack Cavanaugh is the writer of the series. What a great writer he is. Proof would make a great movie. Jack Cavanaugh did an excellent job with the development of the characters. The characters embodied true human traits, so as you are reading you can picture yourself there watching the characters interact as if they were real. Also knowing that the story revolves around the The Great Awakenings, which were true events, made the story even more captivating. As a reader you learn to hate J,K. Jarves, you learn to love Harrison Shaw and Victoria Jarves. Even though Victoria Jarves is one of the important characters, not the 'main' character, you are rooting for her as much as you are for Harrison. Cavanaugh did a wonderful job with creating her character. Victoria is multi-faceted. As a reader you see her character evolve multiple times and is amazing to read. Great book! Many of the aspects of the story are true.

    WHAT AN ADVENTURE

    Bill Bright along with Jack Cavanaugh captivates the reading right from the beginning. The novel is written using historical events as the backdrop and provides the reader with a sense of revival in the comfort of his/her own home. As the reader goes on a journey with Harrison Shaw, a young attorney, we come to witness the sheer magnitude of the Lord's power and the strength of faith. This book is a must have for anyone interested in the Great Awakenings or looking for revival in their own life.
