ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Well, one thing led to another and even though I got C's in my one writing class in college (and told God I could do anything for him but write) I got my first writing job for a TV series. And then another and then some directing jobs and finally some books. (I think I've written and/or directed a few dozen films and about 60 books). The projects have won about 40 awards, I get to travel all over the world, and I'm having the time of my life. I often think that none of this would have happened if I lived my life my way. I would have never chosen writing and directing for a living. Instead, I might be in somebody's mouth this very minute drilling away as a dentist. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with being a dentist, it's just not what I was designed for. So, everywhere I go, I encourage people to say yes to God, no matter how foolish it may feel, because by doing that, they'll be in the center of His will and living a cooler life than they'd ever dreamed possible. It's not always easy and it can be a little scary…but it's anything but boring!
Today I live in California, not too far from Hollyweird (where I'm still trying to make a difference) with two cats, two kids, one dog and one wife.
Another Faithword book by Bill Myers is The Voice.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Thirteen-year-old Jazmin, her ex-Special Ops uncle Charlie, and former FBI agent Lisa are reunited in the second of the Voice of God series to stop a an assassin driven to murder members of a megachurch led by Lisa's brother. This assassin has drawn in a coven of teens toying with satanic practices to support his efforts. The naive youth engage in ceremonies that appear to usher in the death of each of his victims. When their rituals open a portal into the spiritual realm, a terrifying and mysterious entity crosses over to our world.
The battle culminates with the capture of Lisa's father as the next target and a Black Mass requiring both their deaths as a sacrifice. The team will, once again, have to rely on all their wits, strength, and faith to survive in this action-packed, unearthly warfare.

I'm not much of a suspense fan but I did have trouble putting this story down. It was nice and edgy and dealt with realistic topics relating to sinful behavior not often found in Christian fiction. Personally, I was amazed at how much abuse that one poor man could take. The special ops training helped, but still... And the forgiveness theme played a big role in this book, hence the reason I enjoyed it so much. I found it fascinating how twisted the theology of the villian was, and yet at the same time he was incredibly gifted when it came to killing people in freakish ways. This story also shows that messing around with evil is always risky and you are never safe "playing with fire." The power of prayer and worship is also highlighted in this book. Angel of Wrath shows how worship helps keep darkness at bay and reveals that no secret sin is truly "secret". This was a great story with great message.
