Overview

In the time before Creation, before so many of the children of God turned away from their Father and walked knowingly into the dark, there was a choosing, a sifting, a contest of ideas and a battle for souls. In that great premortal war, each of us learned the first lessons of life: The great ones may fall. The wicked can change. The weak and the foolish can become the strongest of all. And the battle between good and evil is the same regardless of the time or place. The Brothers is the first novel in a new series by national bestselling author Chris Stewart. The Great and Terrible takes us from the beginning of time to the final hours of the last days, revealing the greatest secret of all: The children of God can defeat the adversary, for we have fought him before.

I am an LDS man who has some very strong beliefs and has struggled with some very long and painful trials. I am so glad I found this book. It gave me perspective, made my think and gave me hope. It caught my attention and pulled me in. I thought it was a fairly accurate portrayal of what the life before this one was like. He describes it just how I have always imagined it. I like the way it shows that we are all God's children and he loves all of us. I also like the way it portays how this battle of good and evil can rip apart families and friends and how it is still raging today. He made it so real for me. I thought it was very heartfelt and personal and I could relate to the the pain and joy that was portrayed through the charaters. The second book was just a good. I hope Chris will continue to write. So far I love every thing he has done I feel same about C.S. Lewis. I think these are 2 of my favorite contemporary writers.

Prologue: The Brothers Vol. I The Great and Terrible: by Chris Stewart

I had heard of this book when it first came out, but it wasn't until the last one came out that I needed to see what all the excitement was. This first in a series is totally amazing, and Chris is a master story teller in weaving the story of the war in heaven. This novel simply tells the story of Ammon, Luke, Sam and their younger sister Elizabeth and their fighting to save their brothers, who are undecided on the choices they make, as their choices will set their destiny. I was amazed at how spiritual this story was and Chris makes you really think about our pre-mortal days and how it can impact our mortal lives. Even though this is a quick read, the eternal perspectives are mind-boggling!!!! If you haven't read this nail-biter (I don't bite them anymore) do read it.

This book is masterfully written and a perfect continuance of the first. It is captivating and suspenseful. It portrays LDS beliefs and standards in the lives of normal people. This book, although it is about the end of the world, is an unexaggerated, fearfully correct portrayal of what most imagine the last days to involve.

I just heard of this novel and I had just finished the "Left Behind" series/novels. One of my Chemistry students suggested I try to read this series. Her parents own a book store and she works there on the week ends. I just finished reading the first book and I loved it!! I have already made arrangements to get the rest of the series. You are definitely part of the story and part of the characters' lives! You will enjoy it. Guaranteed!

I had heard from numerous people about Chris Stewart's books, but being a skeptical ex high school english teacher and a novice writer I had to see for myself. I have read the first and now on to the second. Chris writes with imagination, creativity, and down right good suspense. You not only understand the characters, but you live with the characters. I challenge anyone to pick up either of these novels, read a few pages and see if you can put it down. Matter of fact I have to get back to finish the second book.
