I’m a long-time fan of Frank Peretti so picked this up when I happened across it on Amazon. Unfortunately I found it very difficult to make sense of. It looks like this is a series that needs to be read in order.

This was a good story that is definitely showing its age; but that's the problem nowadays with writing about technology---things become outdated fast. Written in 1992 and full of lots of "technical terms", this one was a very slow starter for me. However, the mood the author is trying to create by describing the fast-paced atmosphere of a newsroom/studio is an important theme that I realized once I got into the story a little bit.

This isn't my favorite Peretti work, for sure, but it was still fun to read and be reminded of all the "vintage stuff". The description of the email mailbox icon, what it means, how it doesn't mean one has actual, physical, paper mail, etc. cracked me right up, but I didn't really embrace email myself until about 2003 so I guess this would have been uncommon knowledge a decade earlier. In this story, "email" wasn't even a term yet and the mail system was only the local computers within the news agency.

The entire storyline of this book would fall apart if it were written as is with today's laws in place. Most of everyone's arguments and evidence were based on access to medical records, doctors who shared lots and lots of personal info on their patients, and a public that would be outraged at the idea that abortion could actually kill the mother too. In short, there were no HIPAA laws in 1992.

Other elements that seem crazy but were really a thing in those days are things like recording people's phone calls without permission, schools giving out dorm room phone numbers, buying phone cards to make a long distance call (that was SOO techy!!!), use of the word "retarded" as a joke. I do remember these things but being so far away from that time, it made the story seem contrived and weird. It did have a good ending, even if it was a little too 1990s-Christian-Fictiony.

One thing I came away with: I definitely want to be "a prophet who can't help but speak."

This is probably the third time I've read this---maybe fourth. Every other time I imagined some ministry person/pastor that I knew in the role of the main character. This time around, that main character was me. Some of the scenes, actually, were emotionally painful. The church has caused a lot of hurt with their pharisaical ways and there are lots of us who love Jesus but despise the modern church model.

Since coming to Torah I've realized that there is only one authority---Christ. I love the quote on pg. 475 that says, "it's only when you're willing to know him on his terms, for who he is, that you really start to know him at all." God wants us to know Him in His way. That is through His entire Word but especially through Torah where He reveals His covenants and our instructions. If we wonder why the church is falling away---it's because they have abandoned the very foundation for everything---God's Torah.… (mere)
