I almost never share Christian Fiction freebies, because I usually don’t know if they’re any good. This FREE eBook novel is an exception. While I have not actually read it, its author has written a number of non-fiction titles that are great including The Explicit Gospel, Gospel Deeps, and The Pastor’s Justification: Applying the Work of Christ in Your Life and Ministry (all published by Crossway). In other words, I am recommending this based on the author’s theological beliefs, which I think are important to the making of a Christ-exalting novel.
Here’s a blurb about the novel’s story:
Something strange is happening in Houston and its rural suburb, Trumbull. It starts with the bizarre mutilation of a farmer’s cow, sparking rumors of UFO sightings and alien visitations. It’s all an annoyance for the police, who would prefer to focus on the recent murders in the area. Mike Walsh is a journalist with a nagging editor and a troubled marriage who finds himself inexorably drawn into the deeper story creeping up on all who dare get close enough: a grizzled small town police captain, a depressed journalist, a disillusioned pastor, and a little old man. They are unlikely allies against the otherworld.
And here’s one reviewer’s take on it from Amazon.com:
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I bought it this morning and couldn’t put it down until I finished it this afternoon. Wilson does a great job making a Christian novel that is Gospel-Centered, profound, entertaining, addictive, and unpredictable. In a world where Christian fiction is apparently controlled by middle-aged Amish women, Otherworld stands head and shoulders above it’s competition. Do yourself a favor and get it.
