TAKE THE TURNING
AND WALK THE UNLIKELY ROAD
A voice. And five dissimilar people knew they were summoned to obey. Against all earthly logic, it carried a divine command – and their unforeseen meeting would result in a challenge to the cultural direction of the nation and wage war against the most powerful and influential industry in North America.
A message. One that asks for a single personal response – a response that can unveil a new real of moral responsibility and hope. The media frenzy places a spotlight on knowing – and doing – the will of God. How will the group be able to stand against the swelling powers of darkness and greed vying to crush their message of hope?
Can they really hear the voice of God?
I think this book just might be Davis Bunn's most powerful novel yet. You will be shaken out of your complacency and convicted to take that step forward to your own Turning, and into the next thing God has planned for you. The impossible will seem possible.
Powerful, thought provoking, exciting, with a diverse and wonderful cast of characters. The five people chosen by God to bring the Church, the U.S., and even the world, a message of hope and God's love, couldn't be any different from each other if they had come from different countries. Each of them has a role to play, each must step out of their comfort zone, each must take a step of faith and give up things that they hold dear, and each of them must listen to the voice and promptings of the One who called them.
I think my favorite line from the book is when Ruth, the wife of a late-evangelist, says that God does not call the equipped, He equips those He calls. What a powerful piece of truth! Those words really hit me when I read them, and it made me wonder how God is using each of my experiences to shape and equip me to follow His plan.
