Présentation de l'éditeur

The Dream
In 2007, God gave Grant Carroll a critical end times message for the American Church through a chilling dream his wife had. Not long after, he began to notice uncanny similarities between the dream and real world events happening to Christians in the news as if the dream was giving predictions of the future. Grant felt led to turn the dream into a piece of Christian fiction that would grab people's attention, so they would understand the dire warning of coming persecution, before it's too late. That story is called The Glimpse, and it's for youth, young adults, parents,church leaders and the Christian Church at large. It's message is for you.

Story Synopsis
Austin Kelly is about to learn a lesson: Be careful when you pray for God to change you, because He answers prayer. Even though he's a Sunday School teacher, Austin's faith in Jesus Christ is no match for his fear of rejection from others. Lizzie Kelly has more courage than her husband, but struggles to find fulfillment and meaning in her job at their church. The couple's friends aren't faring much better. Computer tech Daniel Cabrera fights disappointment with the direction his career has taken, and even more frustration with the church youth he teaches. His wife, Jackie, strives to maintain a sense of control over her life, but it's quickly faltering. Faced with churches dying across New York City, the four Christian teachers have a cry in their hearts for their lives to make a difference. God answers their cry by throwing them into a world that looks like a nightmare version of the United States. Everything is so similar, yet totally different, starting with the fact that Christians are nearly extinct after decades of persecution. They soon discover it is a fascist nation, where anyone who professes faith in Christ risks their life. The four travelers encounter a group of teenagers that turn out to be one of the last surviving churches, led by their high school teacher, Eric Peterson. With no visible way to get home, Austin, Lizzie and their friends join the underground church in their fight to spread the Gospel while avoiding the National Police. Their task is made even more difficult when revival breaks out in the local high school and draws unwanted attention, but they know they can't stop until their work is complete and the Lord makes a way for them to go home...if there is one..

Since reading always helps me to sleep, I started reading this book when I was having difficulty sleeping. However,it was so riveting and superbly written that I could not put it down. The climax of the story took me completely by surprise...I didn't see it coming, and it caused me to pause and think of my own faith and my relationship with God. The Glimpse is a most-read for everyone, whether they belong to the Christian community or not. Mr. Carroll is a gifted and talented writer, and I'm anxiously looking forward to his next project.

I was a little reluctant to start reading this novel - so little time, so much to do - however the "Introduction" had me intrigued so I continued. The first few chapters suggested a storyline similar to so many. THEN IT HIT! Wow, this is definitely a book I am enjoying and I hope many of you will too. Well worth buying, well worth reading - thanks Grant, brilliant book using an intriguing premise!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A peep at our future? 10 septembre 2012
Par Claudepop - Publié sur Amazon.com
I was intrigued by the premise of this book and in retrospect I believe that "The Glimpse" is in fact a revelation of the plan the enemy, Satan, has for our world. The storytelling is excellent and the characters are likeable and so you do develop a deep caring for their fate. The fictional world that Carroll has created is plausible and he has focused on the character's impressions, perceptions, and interactions rather than details of the world. This focus ensures that the book will not quickly become dated with technology changes.

The Orwellian storyline of an oppressive regime is legitimate because history demonstrates that the unregenerate heart of humankind is ripe for evil to use force and power in repressive ways. In contrast, the contagious nature of the Good News is shown to prosper in spite of oppression. As I meditated on the themes of the book, I pondered which was most harmful to the gospel in cultures: repression and poverty or indulgence and affluence. In Proverbs 30:8-9, Agur requests, "give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that is my portion, that I not be full and deny You and say, `Who is the Lord?' Or that I not be in want and steal, and profane the name of my God." I think perhaps the affluence of our culture has led us down the first road and perhaps our nation has succumbed in many ways to thinking that God does not even exist. The extrapolation of that view to the world that Carroll envisions is readily possible.

I left the book pondering the call in Revelation 3:2, "Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die."

I just received my copy and decided to give the first chapter a quick browse. I found myself not being able to put it down until chapter 3 (unfortunately I have other things to do today! :). Mr. Carroll's vividly descriptive and intriguing writing style rivals that of Suzanne Collins or Dan Brown easily. I am looking forward to seeing what happens next. I would definitely recommend this!
