Overview

John David Krygelski's suspenseful debut novel - The Harvest - is a stunning tour de force! Whether tackling the epic battle between good and evil, or answering the subtle and persistent questions which haunt us all, Krygelski writes a compelling and startling story centered around the mysterious arrival of a man who claims to be The Creator.

Clearly not a mortal, Elohim - as the stranger prefers to be known - astounds those he meets with unexplainable miracles and reality-altering answers. All of this is but a prelude to his announcement that he has come to do something...something which will affect every person on Earth...something which will occur in five days.

Against the backdrop of a world reacting to the announcement that God has arrived, a hastily assembled group of interviewers question and test Elohim...while hidden forces emerge to thwart his plans.

The Harvest is a gripping page-turner - a book which will change your view of the world.

The Creator has come to Earth to bring the chosen back to heaven with him? This will occur in 5 days. Not God, not Allah... but The Creator. His name is Elohim and he looks like an older gentle man in khaki pants and button down shirt with an open collar. Those who have been chosen suddenly have his name, in Hebrew, on their right palm. Five days of in which the people of Earth come to grips with this new reality. During these 5 days there is much discussion between Elohim and a professor of religious studies, a top physicist, a Cardinal of the Catholic Church, a Rabi.... and others. This book lays out an idea of creation and the subsequent development of mankind to how we got to today's world.This is not a "Christian book", as I believed it would be when I first began to read it. It is philosophical and accepting of the major and minor religions of the world and blending them with physics, mathematics, and evolutionary biology. Focusing on the intent and ACTION of an individual, not what church they go to or sacred book they quote.But this is only part of the story. We are brought along a scenario in which those who have lived a life opposite of what is needed to be chosen do. We are introduced to an idea and picture of Lucifer that is unlike any I have seen expressed before. Not to mention a confrontation between Elohim and Lucifer.For me this book explains the forces of good and evil in a manner I can see as being possible. Christian, non-Christian, atheist, agnostic, new age... no matter. This is a book that will introduce any reader to a completely different way of looking at the universe. Except a bit of repetition when discussing and explaining some of the physics, it is easy to read and very enjoyable. The characters are interesting and neither "too good" nor "too evil" to be realistic. A good read!

If you have ever wondered what you would ask God if you could sit down with him this is a great book for you! The ideas presented are unique and thought provoking on all levels. While this is not my normal type of book to read (I enjoy fantasy/science fiction) I found myself immediately caught up in the story. I met the author (when I bought the book) and he is just as passionate in person as the characters in his book are. I look forward to reading any other books he writes!

I sat down and began reading The Harvest and ended up reading it in four sittings. I think we have all thought about what we would ask God if he came back to earth and the characters in The Harvest ask those same questions. I was stuck wanting to know what the next question, miracle, answer was going to be all the way to the end. This is an awesome book and I recommend it to everyone!
