Angel of Wrath

By Bill Myers, FaithWords, softcover, 336 pages, $13.99

Bill Myers crafts a gripping supernatural thriller in Angel of Wrath, touching on the themes of worship, judgment and mercy. The follow-up to The Voice, the book gives a refresher course for newcomers to the Voice of God series, providing profiles of the characters in its preface.

Seattle-area megachurch pastor Thomas Harmon recruits his sister-dismissed FBI agent Lisa Harmon-and ex-Special Ops agent Charlie Madison to help police catch Kristof, a serial murderer targeting Thomas' congregation. Kristof, also ex-Special Ops, chooses victims whom he considers hypocrites.

As Charlie closes in on Kristof, Lisa realizes her father is next—unless she forgives his past sexual abuse. Meanwhile, Kristof offers his victims as sacrifices in demonic Wiccan rituals conducted by his teenage followers, who summon a bizarre trans-dimensional beast.

The action in the story is sometimes used to reveal deeper themes, such as the concept that all passions, even good ones, can become vices, with even Thomas realizing his own selfish ambition. The book's fast pace will draw in readers not put off by moments of gruesome imagery.

By MercyMe, INO Records.


Time flies when you're having fun—and writing hit songs, climbing the music charts, winning awards, selling millions of CDs and DVDs and, most important, ministering to people. It's hard to realize that it's been 10 years since MercyMe frontman Bart Millard wrote the now classic "I Can Only Imagine." The band surely couldn't have imagined then that Millard's personal song, written in response to his father's untimely death, would become a great hit and set the band on its current path. But God does what we cannot imagine or comprehend, and He has used this band to minister to millions over the last decade. read more
