The Voice by Bill Myers
"...a real 'what if' book with plenty of thrills."
Bill Myers’ newest title, The Voice is a phenomenal perspective on the ever popular apocalyptic genre of faith fiction. Discovered in the certain rocks of Israel (from key locations in Bible records), the voice of God has been translated into an actual recording from their imprint. When the scientists who made this discovery are kidnapped, their teenage daughter Jazmin runs to her Uncle Charlie for safety and help in finding her parents. Carrying extra baggage from past failures, Charlie, a former Special Forces agent, along with attractive, yet stubborn FBI agent, Lisa Harmon and Jazmin in tow, Charlie begins the chase to rescue his sister and brother-in-law, discover the truth and avoid the danger certain to follow them. Circling the globe, the trio battles various religious powers and major governments . . . until “the Program” is finally discovered and played back with incomprehensible results.
Myers has taken an intriguing concept and jacked up the suspense big time! It's a real “what if” book with plenty of thrills. This adventure weaves its path up and down a religious roller coaster that will definitely create questions all the way to the thought-provoking finale.
The success of Myers’ stories are a sweet combination of a believable storyline, intense action and brilliantly crafted, yet flawed characters. His young heroine, Jazmin, is realistically immature while at the same time, surprisingly grown up.
He pens a highly descriptive glimpse into how we’ll possibly react when we experience the holy presence and voice of God. It prompted reflection within me to reconsider if I was really in awe of the Almighty . . . or whether this mindset of selfless worship is realistic in this sinful world.
The Voice is a fast-paced, enjoyable read with deeper meaning than most fiction titles deliver to their readers. Prepare to take a dive into the supernatural unknown.
