Call To The Heart - Camden, David
Call To The Heart is Christian fiction. I've found that one end of the Christian fiction genre range contains books that simply avoid the use of sex, drugs, and other contemporary devices used to attract readers. The other end of the genre range includes books where good and evil, faith and God, and the devil play prominent roles. Call to the Heart is toward the later end of the range. If you don't usually read Christian fiction, don't let that put you off. This is a book that I had a hard time putting down. This novel is about a group of Christian friends on a road trip to seek healing. Robert, Scott, Mars, Miranda, and Becca couldn't predict the opportunities and surprises they'll encounter along the way. This trip helps them all understand more about themselves and their faith. This road trip is an adventure that will change all their lives forever. This book provided plenty of suspense to keep me reading past my bedtime at night. Highly recommended. I think it's interesting that most people who read a lot of fiction, and I do, can suspend disbelief to enjoy books about vampires, werewolves, witches, and zombies. The same people will turn their noses up at Christian fiction. When I finish a novel by Armstrong, Meyer, or Harris I don't believe in witches, vampires, or shape shifters. Christian fiction often includes angels and demons, and they frequently have powers that put other supernatural creates to shame. You can enjoy a good Christian fiction story without embracing Christianity. Give it a try. It can be very rewarding.
