Voice in the Wilderness (Against All Enemies #1)

Title:  Voice in the Wilderness (Against All Enemies #1)
Author:  H. L. Wegley
Pages:  394
Year:  2015
Publisher:  H. L. Wegley
My rating is 5+ stars.
Reminiscent of events both here in America and abroad, Voice in the Wilderness seeks to awaken our nation through the medium of fiction.  Like John the Baptist who was a voice crying out in the wilderness or Queen Esther who was reminded by her uncle about being born for such a time as this, both are examples that challenge us to look beyond ourselves.  The novel is so enthralling I simply had to finish the story before crawling between the sheets.
In the tale, two bright young people are thrust into a world of espionage, tyranny, treason and more shortly after the opening of the book.  From that point forward there is also danger lurking though not always identified by the two young people, Daniel and KC.  Daniel authored a blog that sought to encourage and educate his audience by sharing the truth of what he saw happening in America.  KC was working in the White House as a network specialist until she found incriminating evidence that would put the President out of office and likely in prison.
Unsure who they can trust, they must proceed cautiously and with faith.  Both have to face their past hurts and overcome fears that seek to steal their reliance on the Lord.  I really found this work of fiction heart-thumping, suspense-filled and captivating.  Some authors I have learned write stories to communicate a message, and this one book really reminds us that America needs people willing to stand up and do whatever God has called them and equipped them to do.  I loved how the author had military and local emergency workers live up to the actual oath they had taken to defend our Constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic!
Americans can pray, vote and have hope that God can restore us to the nation He has called us to be, a beacon that calls people to Him.  As KC learned, we cannot do it on our own; we must learn to rely on Him every day.  Each generation receives the mantle from the prior one.  What are we going to do in preparation for those who come after us?  We can teach them about God and His Word; we can teach history as many miraculous things have happened even during wars that prove God’s existence.  We can teach the Constitution not because it is required, but so people can see how God moved men to write a document that gives America a solid foundation.
Read Voice in the Wilderness and be prepared to be in the book till the end.  See if you aren’t moved to be more active in preserving and restoring America so she glorifies the One True God!
