"The Days of Antipas" by Daniel Clarke Purcell Book Review

the-days-of-antipas-by-daniel-clarke-purcellGenre: Spiritual Warfare
Recommendation: Good
Originality – 5/5
Writing Style 4/5
Plot 4/5
Characters – 4/5
Aesthetics  – 4/5

Christianity is illegal and the cops are demon possessed. But that doesn't stop God or His faithful followers in the Messiah Initiation.

This spiritual warfare thriller is an exiting read with a lot of interesting characters. You'll read about Christians who remain true to their faith and those who fail miserably. You'll see the victory of people being called out of their life of sin and receiving God's calling.

As with most Christian novels, there may be some aspects of the writer's theology you disagree with, but there's plenty here for all Christians to appreciate.

One of the literary drawbacks to the book is that the main character, Antipas, doesn't change very much. He's a fairly static character with most of the change happening around him.

From a writing mechanics point of view, you might notice a lack of professional editing, but the grammar mistakes are minor and they won't distract you from the story.

Over all, this is a fun, thought-provoking novel that moves quickly and is likely to stick in your memory for its originality and interesting character hooks.
