Times of Trouble novel's backdrop is on the End Times and all the other events leading to it. It is like a true story as most of the character sketches, circumstances, and plots are familiar and can possibly happen in real life. I appreciate that the author keeps on stressing and repeating the importance of God, Bible, prayer, salvation, church, fellowship, close family ties, purity before marriage, and honesty about the character's feelings and weaknesses. I love the many prayers included in this novel, and many times, at some point of the story, I can readily identify with the lines of the characters and the situations. Times of Trouble ministered to me greatly. It inspired me to keep the faith and never to give up in times of trouble knowing that the ending of everything--the world, mankind, and my own troubles, are glorious when Jesus Christ returns on the earth and we will be raptured and caught up in the clouds at the trumpet blast.

I hadn't even finished the first chapter when I went "WOW!".  After seeing the changes in my insurance, I wondered if that was what "Obamacare" was going to lead us to.  This book should be a must read for every American.  After the first chapter, this books shows what could happen if we keep allowing government to get bigger and making decisions for us based on "keepin us safe".  A page turner for sure and scary, not in a Stephen King way- but in that this IS happening and what could come of it if the people of this country keep following like sheep and letting the government "take care of us".

Good Story Line Brian Atwood life is changing drastically with the birth of his third child and his work as a field agent for the FBI. When the child is born with Down’s syndrome, the current government procedure is to remove the child to a facility against the parent’s wishes, then Atwood and his family move to DC to work for the president. Immediately, Atwood realizes that he probably will not last long with this administration. After only a few months, the US begins to fall apart and the current president takes full control. The first person point of view helps to keep this story from being a smooth read. When major things happen the main character shows little emotion, giving the book a stale feeling. The storyline is excellent, but Ball could have built more on the theme to create a better story.
