On My Nightstand - The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn

The Harbinger is not your usual novel. On the page reserved for a dedication, the author states: "What you are about to read is presented in the form of a story, but what is contained within the story is real." Those words alone are enough to make a reader sit up and take notice.

I've heard many prophecy teachers over the years, and one recurring question they receive is, "Where is America in prophecy?" Jonathan Cahn conducted an extensive study and discovered a connection between ancient Israel and the United States. Could verses in Isaiah contain the mystery of 9/11 and the collapse of our economy in 2008?

While this book won't teach you the fine points of writing, it will make you think. The words I've read still echo in my mind and send me to my knees. A New York Times Bestseller, it's reaching people most Christian novels will never touch.

This is more than a book review/recommendation. I believe this message needs to be read by every believer. The future of our nation could well be at stake.

Writers and Readers: Have you read this book yet? How did it impact you? The author has also appeared on many Christian TV programs. Have you seen any of the interviews?

Disclaimer: I borrowed this book from a friend. Neither the author nor the publisher paid me to give this review/recommendation. The opinions I've expressed, as always, are my own.

Hi Dotti -

This book is a bestseller. Like The Left Behind series, the mix of fiction and non-fiction draws readers.

Hi Susan....Have not heard of this book but it sounds quite intriguing.

Thanks so much for your visit and comment to my blog today. Wow! Eggs where you live definitely are cheaper. Imagine that! We have expensive chicks here in western Massachusetts, I guess. Ha!

Take care and have a good Sunday. Susan

Hi Maria - It has a powerful message. Enjoy your day.

Hi Susan - We have many farms in this area, so perhaps there's more competition. :)
