A portion of a review I just received for "At Play in the Seas of the Lord."
George Duncan’s novel was a one-evening read. To be honest, most Christian-based action novels annoy rather than inspire me. The pages in “At Play” kept turning because I had to see the next move in this ping- pong paced action-packed thriller that permits readers to vicariously experience the tension between good and evil that has warred on earth and in the heavenlies since Adam and Eve were evicted from the Garden.
Mr. Duncan has put together a whale of a tale of sunken treasure, temptation, the occult, history, and redemption. If the word “efficient” ever applied to a fiction writer it applies here. Characters are developed quickly, deeply, and the reader is drawn into the quick-stepped dance of the intricate story line. The action and rabbit-trails of peripheral characters and events are effortlessly woven into the main story. The evil characters are completely and thoroughly evil and there is nothing to raise hackles among any Christian denomination.
The story is entertaining, graphically suggestive, surprising, and thoroughly enjoyable, but for Christians the payoff of this novel is witnessing what is possible when the naked power of God is displayed in real time....The book contains violence, sex, and human foible – but it is presented so well that the reader’s imagination provides all detail. You could read the entire book aloud and not blush once.
Have you ever stood up against evil in the Name of the Lord? After reading this book you may feel brave enough to try. It is well worth the investment of your time and the purchase price. Enthusiastically recommended!
(Yes, I ran this once before but just wanted to show it off again. And it's my web site. So I get to do that.)
