Simon learns many vital lessons and so can you when you read this series. These novels are fiction, but yet there are elements that are truth...namely the Word of God that is contained in them and the importance of learning and growing in the Word. These novels contain a wealth that can be discussed in book studies and bible studies. I would encourage everyone to read Lisa Clark's Messenger Series - which culminates in Revealed.
Revealed in itself is a masterpiece. It's a work of art. It keeps you engaged from the opening page to the ending. And even in the ending I was hungry for more...more of Simon's story. Yet as you will discovers as you are sucked into Simon's story, this is also your story, your story of taking up your cross, following after your Lord and "Revealing" the message to those that God places in your life at the right and proper times. It's your story of keeping your Confirmation vows. It's your story of faith.
In Revealed Simon Clay steps out even more in his faith than one might imagine he could. He is learning about the Apostle John and the relationships that John has with others, including his brother. Simon learns the importance of reconciliation, confession and forgiveness. Simon continues to learn the importance of his own confirmation vows. He continues to learn what it means to be faithful to Christ no matter what - even if life may be in danger. For yes, this Message, This Word is indeed "dying for."
I would love to provide spoilers...but that would defeat the purpose. The only spoiler I will give is that with Simon we too pray even in this Easter Season, "Come Lord Jesus, Come Quickly."
