Fire Prophet

“We sounded the alarm,” said Marcus. “We believe that these were coordinated efforts by Abaddon and his forces.” Jonah’s mind churned. “What are they trying to do?” Taryn glanced at Marcus. “We’re not entirely sure, Jonah. But we have sent angelic forces to each nephilim family around the world, just like here. Based on what we know, it makes sense to assume that they are trying to rid the world of the nephilim.” “And their children,” added Marcus without a hint of emotion in his voice.

Book: Fire Prophet (Son of Angels) by Jerel Law, Thomas Nelson Publishers, 2012
Fire Prophet (Son of Angels)
Genre: Fantasy, Adventure
Target Audience: Boys and Girls 11-15
Subjects: Spiritual warfare, Prayer, God’s will
Summary: The forces of evil aren’t as stupid as Jonah wishes. They’ve got it all figured out. A coordinated attack on all of the nephilim families around the world all at once sends their angel protectors into action. Soon Jonah and all the other quarterlings are separated from their parents and enrolled in angel school, a time of intense training in the Word of God, their spiritual gifts and spiritual warfare. Meanwhile, their parents, the nephilim, are safely hidden away in another location. But the enemy knows that all it has to do to get the parents out of hiding is attack the children. And fortunately for them, the one nephilim who pridefully refused the angelic protection knows exactly how to find out where the children are. Before they’ve had any time to master their lessons, Jonah, Eliza, Jeremiah and the other quarterlings are called upon by Elohim to join in the battle against the evil one.
Notes: The second in a new fantasy series, Fire Prophet explores the “what if there were humans that were part angel” question. Unlike many books exploring this concept however, this series is based very strongly on the truths of Scripture without as much speculation beyond the idea that nephilim could still be around in today’s world. This book focuses heavily on Ephesians 6 and the concept of spiritual warfare. The kids learn to use their gifts in light of the Scripture passage. They learn that strengthening their faith strengthens their abilities to fight against evil. This book is centered truly around the truths of Scripture and because of that, I highly recommend it.
Recommendation Scale: 5/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

Ephesians 6:10-12 – Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
