Wolf Time is an interesting novel. It effortlessly weaves together strands of Norwegian history, Norse paganism, Lutheran pietism, and political commentary. It is not quite urban fantasy and not quite religious fiction. Set in the fictional town of Epsom, MN, the story centers on a history professor at a local college and his friend who is an orthodox pastor for a liberal "Christian" church (real Christianity having been oultlawed). Things turn upside down when a renowned Norwegian poet visits the local college. This poet is not what he seems and he has interesting plans for the small town.

Others have compared Lars Walker to C.S. Lewis. I don't think that the comparison is unwarranted. Walker writes with the same joy-filled wondrous prose that Lewis is famous for. Walker's prognostications about the future of civil society are eerily coming true, although they may be a little extreme, you can definitely see where Walker is coming from.

Talk about a page-turner. Talk about a book that keeps you up late because you want to read "just a little more" before lights out.
I was reminded of several of my favorites -- a word about them in half a second. But first, I must say I felt the author was writing from his own passion and wisdom! The book's robust and entertaining.
Well, it reminded me a little of Poul Anderson's classic "Unknown" magazine-style novel Three Hearts and Three Lions; Charles Williams's occult thriller War in Heaven; Russell Kirk's stories of the macabre published by the legendary Arkham House -- specifically "The Invasion of the Church of the Holy Ghost," in Watchers at the Strait Gate; and C. S. Lewis's Arthurian science fiction tale That Hideous Strength.
And it reminded me a bit of Stephen King, too.

Despite the author's claim that he's not trying to predict the future, he is very persuasive in his demonstration of how little baby steps can take a society right over the edge of the cliff, and I assure you that even now a nascent politician is reading the chapter on the Definition of Religion Act and thinking that it sounds like a Really Good Idea. All that aside, Mr. Walker wrestles with some very serious philosophical and theological issues here and like all good wrestlers, he leaves you with just as many questions as answers. Which reminds me: if you like this book, you should immediately go to the Popular Music section and buy Nichole Nordeman's "Wide Eyed" CD. Amazon is not going to make this connection, but it's a slam-dunk. Read the book, listen to the songs, and take heart in the fact that even if nobody knows the right answers, at least some pretty talented people are asking the right questions.

Walker gives us great Fantasy with possible Viking history and lore...along with a parody on our times. A great deal of fun.

Interesting book melding Viking mythology with a more contemporary setting. Provocative. Characters are authentic and compelling in most cases.

Lars Walker's spiritual thriller is set in south-eastern Minnesota in the very near future. Lars grew up near here, so he knows the people and culture from the inside, far better than, say, Garrison Kiellor.
As a spiritual thriller, this book is the most 'tro' or true and accurate (within the canons of mythopoeia) Christian spiritual thriller that I know of. Each re-reading of what might at first glance at the cover, appear a pulp fantasy, shows me more profundity, more depth of truth. If you like Peretti and Left Behind, but desire something deeper, this book is for you. If you like Tolkien and Lewis and wish to read something more contemporary, this novel is also for you.
Mindless entertainment numbs the mind, whether it is from the TV or in print. This book provides a wonderfully engrossing mixture of fantasty and fact, of adventure and reflection. The writing is crisp and engaging. You can always tell when somebody is working at being profound. This book is profound without apparent effort, which means it is very well written. The genre is definitely fantasty, but this is also a very engaging intellectual romp through our modern day jungle of competing theories. I really enjoyed this book. It offers much food for thought. It deals with ultimate issues. Kudos!
