A young man discovers he has the "gift" of healing, a doctor is giving some strange treatments to patients, a man in an olive trench coat keeps disappearing, and a church is praying for God to pour out His spiritual gifts in their midst.
This thriller is a short book and reminds me of This Present Darkness by Frank Peretti. It's tone is similar...maybe not quite as scary but still edgy.
I suppose you could find fault with the "science fiction" sounding medical advances...however, I humbly suggest that you do some research on nanotechnology. Scientists are researching and testing this right now...see http://nano.cancer.gov for just one example.
- How do we as Christians approach new technology such as cloning, nanotechnology and genetic modification?
- How do we possibly regulate it? Should we?
- Is "just because we can do it doesn't mean we should" a better answer?
