My Review

I liked this novel with its fresh portrayal of what the future might bring in light of the prophecies in Revelation. I like that the theological viewpoint is of a mid-trib rapture. Christians, while protected from harm, must experience the trauma of disasters and plagues and face the decision of getting the mark of the beast. Kohler does a pretty good job of imagining how a few non-Christians might work together to survive and how scientists and the media explain away supernatural events. While the author's writing style is not as polished as it could be, this is a novel worth reading. It gives Christians much to think about regarding what the future might hold.

My rating: 4/5 stars.

This is the second book in the Way Out Series. You can read my review of the first book in the series, One Way Out, here. It covers roughly the same time period but from a different point of view.

When Things Go Wrong

After much struggling we finally got the Sterno container open. I left an assistant to place the canister in the holder below the chaffing dish, while I went to check on some of the food. My foot barely crossed the kitchen threshold when I heard a scream followed by a ker-thunk. My stomach flipped as I quickly returned. Staring at an upside down sterno can was the assistant. Quickly I picked up the can and looked for damages. The pink gelatinous goo now sprinkled the table, her shirt, the floor, the kitchen half-wall and, of all things, the beautiful gauze backdrop. With all hands on deck, every worker scrambled with wet and dry towels to pick up every spot we found before any of the wedding party arrived. It created a bond for us that day. Have you ever had a kitchen disaster you wanted to sweep into the trashcan before anybody entered the room? To my shock, my aging mother confessed to numerous kitchen disasters in her years of cooking for the family. Sometimes this included making a needed substitution to a recipe. Often the change brought success. Below is one such recipe where coke was substituted for sherry. Whether it’s spilled flammable gel or lacking a recipe ingredient, life can mess with our plans. If we just go with it, we might find the end product can bring about good and not failure.
