from an angel i do not deny thean angel I do not deny the of angels However this visit is like nothing we read in Scripture Do we The Game of Love ever read of anyone getting a personal friendly angel who comforts them nightly3 THE ABSOLUTE DEAL BREAKER When Roman drops DEAD on the sidewalk he is ushered into hell by two demons Once IN hell he cries out to Jesus who appears as a bright light and takes his hand Miraculously Roman is revived and taken to a hospital both for his heart and a demon inflicted wound to his leg which handicaps him for the remainder of the bookPerhaps at this point you are uestioning whether Roman was really dead In a later chapter he tells a reporter I had a heart attack died on the sidewalk and went to hell Jesus got me out Chapter 37My thoughts We are given the opportunity to repent and believe today while we are living When we die it s game over Jesus does not do special operation rescue missions into the pit of hell Why I believe this In the parable of the rich man Luke 1619 31 we read But Abraham replied Son remember that in your lifetime you received your good things while Lazarus received bad things but now he is comforted here and you are in agony And besides all this between us and you a great chasm has been set in place so that those who want to go from here to you cannot nor can anyone cross over from there to us AndI tell you the truth no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again John 33Whoever believes in the Son hasternal life but whoever rejects the Son will not see life for God s wrath remains on them John 336Just as people are destined to die once and after that to face judgment Hebrews 927They also will answer Lord when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison and did not help you He will reply Truly I tell you whatever you did not do for one of the least of these you did not do for me Then they will go away to ternal punishment but the righteous to ternal life Matt 2544 46Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it The arth and the heavens fled from his presence and there was no place for them And I saw the dead great and small standing before the throne and books were opened Another book was opened which is the book of life The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books Rev 2011 12As a new believer this author s Mark of the Lion Series won me to Christian fiction She is an xuisite storyteller and I admire her skill She is an xuisite storyteller and I admire her skill m not saying this book is poorly written However I do not feel like I can recommend a story in which the plot hinges on Christ descending into hell to save a sinner To me if you are a Christian fiction author your purpose should be to glorify God that can only be accomplished when He and His Word are represented correctly Theology does matter Thank you to Tyndale Publishing for their kindness in allowing me to read and review an advanced copy of The Masterpiece by Francine RiversFrancine Rivers is a legend in Women s Christian Fiction Her book Redeeming Love is among my favorite reads of all time She has an xuisite way of writing unconditional love and making readers feel her words I knew many book lovers were anticipating this book and I was The Lady in Pink eager to get my hands on it likeveryone Eyes else It felt like Divine Intervention when Tyndale contacted me about this upcoming release I neverxpected to be one of the lucky people to receive an ARCRoman Velasco has it all a successful art.

"For Herself And Accomplish "herself and accomplish dreams she has put off for years Through broken pasts and years of heartache Roman and Grace are unexpectedly able to connect in ways they never imaginedAlternating between past and present perspectives readers are able to fully grasp the depth of the characters Francine Rivers was able to create Though Roman and Grace seemed worlds apart in their personalities they faced similar challenges growing up and learned to cope in their own respective ways Roman turned to art and material possessions and Grace turned to God The fruits of their lives were made vident by the things they valuedI found myself ager to read about Roman as the story went on He was gruff and hard around the Spirit of the Wolf edges but from the get go it wasasy to see he had a good heart He was developed so well that I felt as if I knew him personally and could imagine people I know in my real life similar to him Though my own life is uite different than Roman s I found him to be the A Vineyard Christmas easiest character to relate to He was broken hard and rough but he was realGrace on the other hand seemed kind wonderful and driven Of course she still faced her share of challenges and brokenness but her inner voice and the voices of her friends were beyond compare Though I share her love of God and similarities with her character andven liked her I struggled in relating to her I think she seemed almost too good to be trueThis was a well developed story and an Een Bijzondere Vorm Van Osteosclerose enjoyable read garnering a hardarned 4 star rating The main plot twist caught me off guard and I loved seeing the Supernatural lements added to the story I was impressed with the turnaround and growth of the characters along with the bits of Faith sprinkled in throughout I really njoyed one xplanation about a character being Saved but not yet a follower of Christ This was the first time I had thought of someone being on those particular terms with God before and was ven able to recognize part of my past from that perspective Such a simple sentence was a true Hot Shot (North Ridge Book 3) eye opener for me My favorite part of thentire book was the author s note at the conclusion It served as a great Math Basics 6 explanation for the story and was a heartfelt piece of writing to wrap up the novel nicely The Masterpiece is a great look at a modern Christian relationship and can serve as anncourager for women of faith I must admit I don t often read Christian fiction though a Christian myself as I ve found the stories in my Voyage to the Underworld (Star Wars Missions, experience often give a sugarcoated look at life and love However my last two reads have been highlynjoyable stories both from Tyndale Publishing making me The First Ghost eager to read of the books in their collection Fans of Francine Rivers will undoubtedly love The Masterpiece but I hope others like myself who maybe don t pick up this specific genre often will step out of their comfort zones and give this book a try Pre order this beauty now or pick it up upon its release on February 6th I ve only read Redeeming Love and the Marta s Legacy books by Ms Rivers Her work is amazing with those books They have all the feels within them and just make you want to come back for So when I saw she was releasing The Masterpiece I didn t pass on it I was anxious to be taken to a writing style that only Ms Rivers knows how to do I was absolutely pleased with all that I felt with this book This book has amazing characters Roman and Grace are created with such depth and complexity They were true to life and really nestled into my soul The way they interacted the way their story unfolds on the pages really shined for me As someone who was in Honors Art 4 for four years of highschool I always fall for books that.
