Rodney Sturges about this book: Choices of The Divine is the first book in three book series. This inspiring and suspenseful book is about a man and his family as they struggle in a world that has rapidly changed. It is only by their faith in God that they are able to survive and fulfill their destiny. The choices they make will both haunt and inspire them as they struggle in a world filled with evil and destruction. How would you react if the world fell apart in an instant? Would you follow the majority and fall into an every man and woman for him or herself mentality? This is the important question that I want everyone that reads Choices of The Divine to ask themselves. I would like my readers to come away from reading my book feeling inspired and yet at the same time I would like them to feel a bit uneasy as well. I have faith that they will never look at the world the same way again.

The Potential Is In ALL OF US
What originally drew me towards 'Choices of the Divine' was it's Christian view and the fact that it's written by a new author. I enjoy reading brand new writers and have read a lot of Christian fiction. Immediately the story starts off with a little bit of mystery placing you in a room with two men being held for a reason yet unknown. Nathan's story unfold in retrospect as he tells his journey to his mystifying cellmate. Because a large part of the book is told in this fashion we learn quite a lot about Nathan, but the story moves a little slowly. We learn that a new group of people has taken control of society and that Nathan must learn to survive not only physically as a human being but spiritually as a Christian. This book is unashamedly CONSERVATIVE politically and has a very CHRISTIAN theme so it may have a limited group of interested readers as the author's views may rub some people the wrong way. I think the message is meant to be more personal and have the reader ask themselves some tough questions. Would you unquestioningly follow authority? Would you be able to care for yourself and your family during the harshest of times? Would you kill another human being to survive? As a Christian would you stand by your faith and beliefs no matter what? Overall for a first effort this book is good at a nice short to medium length. It's got some action, a lot of emotion, and a strong message. [by Sherri]
