This book is a must read. I could say it is well written; and it is. I could say it has a great plot; and it does. The outstanding thing about it is that it uses the age old method used by teachers all over the world to convey a deep message. If you don't remember the message, you will remember the story. The author says to all persons of faith; the child is the father of man. Lose the child and you lose the future. For his writing and skill, and for the courage to put it out there for all to read. I say kudos. The message in the book goes beyond any ranking system.

From back of book: Would you hold on to faith . . . if all else seemed lost? Austin, Lizzie, Daniel and Jackie are four believers in Christ who are missing something in their spiritual walk, something they can't find on their own. They see the church dying around them, and they desperately grasp for answers. Without warning, they are supernaturally transported to a place that looks and feels like the United States they know, but only at first glance. They soon learn that it's a fascist nation in which Christians and all who oppose the government are severely persecuted. They encounter a small group of teenage believers, secretly meeting in a high school basement. The believers take them in, and the four friends get a glimpse of a world where the church is almost dead, and faith is all that keeps believers alive. Along with the group's leader, Eric Peterson, they work to help the fledgling church survive and grow, but danger awaits them at every turn. The clandestine NSA and the National Police have eyes and ears everywhere. It's a fight to survive, and to find a way home...if there is one.
