The Face of God book. I've become a Bill Myer through books like Eli and The God Hater. As I looked over the rest of his bibliography, I found The Face of God. The story is engaging and exciting. I always find it exciting to see characters recovering the sacred artifacts I have read about in the scriptures.

in which case I'd recommend ELI to really get the discussion juices flowing - at least until THE GOD HATER comes out in 2010. Thanks for stopping by! bill ww. illmyers

In this techno-thriller from the best-selling author of the Fire of Heaven Trilogy, a successful TV newscaster is hurled into a parallel world exactly like ours except for one minor detail: Christ didn't come there 2,000 years ago, but today. Finally, the truth about the millennium bug! Through a bizarre disaster (nothing unusual for our boy blunder), Wally accidentally fries the circuits of Ol' Betsy, his laptop computer.

When senior pastor Daniel Lawson steps down from his mega-church in an attempt to rediscover the fervent love of God he once had, he stumbles upon one of the mysterious stones used by the High Priest in the Old Testament and soon finds himself rushing to different parts of the Arab world in a race with a terrorist to find the other stones.

I've never read anything by Bill Myers, but now I will seek out his other writings. "The Face of God" is listed as a supernatural thriller, a classification I suspect people will agree with. As a Christian, I know how truly supernatural God is, so everything in this book could be possible. However, I also believe that God uses items in His appropriate time, so treasures like the Ark of the Covenant probably no longer exist on our plane. That being said, I enjoyed Mr. Myers' fast-paced style. He develops his characters fully, without rushing, so it's easy to keep up without any confusion. I also LOVE that there is no cursing or inappropriate love scenes (I don't think I'm a prude, I just don't want to have to read it). The only part of the story that gave me pause was the previous conversations (in italics) from the characters' lives. Whatever the author's intent may have been, I felt it became redundant to the point of irritation.
I would recommend this book to believers over the age of 16, or if they are mature for their age, 14. I would also recommend it to most adults who have an open mind, without an anti-God chip on their shoulder.

This particular book drew me in with the topic and I was glad to give it a try.

Daniel is the pastor of a megachurch who has lost his passion. After receiving a strange stone in the marketplace, things start to go badly. When his wife is murdered, Daniel begins to question just about everything. His faith, his relationships with people, especially his relationship with his son. Before she died, his wife told him of a dream she had. Once he gets home, his house is ransacked and it all comes back to the stone.

The stone itself appears to be one of 12 stones that make up the ancient priest's breastplate that, along with the Urim and Thummim, allow the wearer to hear the voice of God. It is something that Daniel, along with other people, wants desperately to hear.

Ibrahim is a terrorist thinking that he is doing the will of Allah. His plan is to set off bombs in various locations and release the smallpox virus on millions. He seeks the stones to make sure that he is doing the will of Allah. The people he is working with are not patient men and urge him to proceed without that information.

The pastor's team consists of his son, a Jewish archaeologist and the niece of the terrorist. Aside from the son, each woman has their own agenda that they keep secret from Daniel and his son. Time is running out and it seems that tragedy follows the stones.

The author mentions in the beginning that it is a violent book and urges readers under 17 to put off reading it until later. To me, it wasn't that bad, and I'm a sensitive soul. The author tended to get a little wordy at times and I found myself skimming a little bit, especially when Daniel is diving. The formatting in the dialogue portions of the book is horrendous. You have to make sure to watch for the beginning and end quotes to keep track of the speaker.

Aside from those minor issues, this was a great book. The only issue I had with the story was the romantic tension between the archaeologist and the newly widowed pastor. I think it would have been an easy thing to leave out and it wouldn't have really changed the story in my opinion. There is a setup at the end for a sequel about the Tree of Life, but I couldn't find any record of a book about it. Since this particular book was released originally in 2002, I don't think that it's out there. Pity. As for The Face of God, the author did a great job with a unique story and I recommend reading it.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. The characters are very well developed, with all the faults and foibles that we humans have. The story line grabs and keeps your interest from the first page to the last. There is a supernatural aspect to the plot, and a Christian influence all the way through. This story touched deep to my very soul. There is a lot of suspense and twists and turns you do not expect at all. This is the first book by this author I have read, but it certainly won't be the last. I am keeping it to read over and over. I received this as an ebook, free through Amazon for an honest review OUTSTANDING!!!

I thought this book was a really good book. I guess I feel compelled to tell readers that the main character is a pastor so there are lots of Bible references and religious stuff. But even if you are not religious, I think you can get something out of the book and will enjoy it as long as you approach the material with an open mind. I don't think the author was trying to be "ultra religious". But he did work for Focus On The Family (which is an ultra conservative Christian organization) for many years. That being said, while the book has lots of religious stuff in it, I thought it was done from a very well-rounded perspective, and the pastor in the book realizes the dangers of pursuing holiness instead of a relationship with God. The book grabs your attention from the beginning and holds it until the very end. The book is very well written. So all in all, I think readers should enjoy this novel regardless of religious background as long as they keep an open mind.

Being a Christian, I found the book an interesting read. It covers many areas of genre's and so will suit a variety of tastes. The pastor undergoes some hard lessons before the end comes, constantly growing in his understanding of himself and his God. His opponent however - a terrorist - excuses his behaviour in the name of his religion and his need for revenge unlike his niece whose Islamic faith is explained as a contrast to his. Bill will take you on a journey of discovery of yourself, history, religion, geography and society. If you have no understanding of Islam it is probably a good place to start in that it is respectful of Islam and its faithful adherents without sacrificing our own beliefs.
