    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 really enjoyed getting into this book. It seemed so much like it could be happening now, but of course it's not. I enjoyed the bringing together of the gemstones. I do wish a little more of their value and identification could have been included. However, that is coming from my own personal preference having 5 children named after those gemstones and remembering the research I did on those gems. Other than that, the plot was engaging and the potential relationship between the pastor and the doctor created a special excitement to the story.

    The plot was great but the author's vocabulary could have used some divine intervention. The word "brief" was used three times in the first three sentences of the book. I nearly put the book down before I had finished the first page. Secondly, I found it bothersome that the phrase "she blew her hair (or bangs). . ."was used eight times in reference to Helen. The character development was also lacking.

    The writing is good, very descriptive. Makes you look around and consider the influence of the demonic and the spiritual a little more intently. It is overtly evangelical, which I get is possibly needed for full development of the story line, but I would expect that someone who is not a believer to put it down the moment the gospel message starts unless they're seeking. Hard to tell for whom this is written, believers or non? For no other reason though than the reminder of the influence of the spiritual in our daily lives, I'd recommend it.
