Rachelle Dekker - The Calling
I have enjoyed both the books I have read by Rachelle and am enjoying them almost as much as I enjoy her dad's work.
A very clever weaving in of the gospel in a futuristic fiction story. Her characters are believable even when they are not likeable.
A good read!

The sequel to The Choosing was as good as the first. Which also means that I also wish that the message, the metaphor of Aaron representing Jesus was a little different. Faith is more than just accepting that you are a child of God and loved no matter what. While this is true, there is more to it. It requires a death, the death of your old self, and repentance, repentance from your sinful nature. You need to get on your knees and beg for forgiveness and accept the gift of Salvation Jesus offers. Then, He will fill you with all the light and love He has to offer. There is no message or repentance in these books. And I wish there was.

Who the heck is Aaron?
Looked the 1st book!!!
Great idea for a book! The 2nd book dragged on for me.
Don't like the uncertainty of Aaron's identity. Who the heck is Aaron? How can he just be in dreams and in places that are heavily secure and not be detected? Is he an angel? And if so why don’t we know? If he is NOT an angel is he Jesus? He can’t be Jesus Christ my Lord because he claims he can NOT SAVE anyone. I was really confused.
And, in the story, he's supposed to be speaking Truth. But he always spoke in riddles. Jesus didn’t always talk in riddles. Sometimes, Jesus would say, “Go and sin no more” Sometimes Jesus would kill a tree just to get a point across.
It was even more confusing how the community would mention god. Aaron never said 'God', but he did talk about the Father. This could be very confusing for a new Christian.
Aaron often spoke of things like finding your true worth, overcoming insecurity. Which is a beautiful message but what the heck is he talking about when he would mention “the power within oneself” If Aaron is refereeing to the Holy Spirit inside of us then it was not clear. AGAIN if I was a baby Christian I would have MORE questions than answers. It felt like Aaron was some kind of worldly hippy trying to be profound.
