Plot Synopsis

The message was unexpected but instantly recognizable. 

A voice resonated from a distance and somehow from within.  Against all earthly logic, it carried a divine command.  And five very different people knew they were summoned to obey.

Their actions were demanding, but not particularly grand.  Only later would they see a pattern emerge - one that links their tasks together and comes to challenge the cultural direction of the nation.  They realize that one small personal response unveiled a new realm of moral responsibility.  And this affirmation of everyday hope captures the attention of millions.

But power and money are at stake.  Malicious elements soon align themselves to counter the trend.  To succeed they must also undermine its source.  Can we really believe that God speaks to people today?  Surely this must be dismissed as superstition or delusion.  These well-intentioned but misguided individuals should not be allowed to cast our society back into the Dark Ages.

The public debate and media frenzy place an unprecedented spotlight on knowing and doing God's will.  The five encounter threats, but try to remain steadfast in their faith.  Had God indeed imparted wisdom on selected individuals?  Is this sweep of events part of his divine purpose? 

The movement may herald a profound renewal - one that some are calling The Turning...

My Review

I have a full time job, run an active global ministry and am a lead intercessor at our church. Few things pull me away from the 3 God has given me responsibility over except in the few minutes before sleep when I allow myself the luxury of a good novel. Until this moment. Until this book. Not only did it demand my full attention, it commanded my response.

My life took a turning of its own while reading this incredible new book by Davis Bunn. I have read almost every book he has written and what happened to me while reading this now-relevant novel has only occurred while reading 2 of (his) other books.

I heard God Speak. I felt the Holy Spirit take me to the Throne of God and introduce me to a new season of Kingdom Life.

Is there intrigue? Yes. Is there a dynamic plot intertwined with a love story? Yes. Does it speak to where our society is headed & how God’s love can turn that around for those of us who Believe? Again, Yes. But it will also call out to you and ask you to reply. From the depths of your heart.

I encourage everyone to take a few hours (with a good cup of coffee) and settle in to one of the best books I’ve read in a long time… The Turning. It will turn your life around.

I received a complimentary copy of The Turning from River North Fiction in exchange for my honest review.
