Truth Runner

Why can’t I just go back in time, to life before this all happened? Why can’t I just forget about things, pretend none of this is real?

Book: Truth Runner (Son of Angels, Jonah Stone) by Jerel Law, Thomas Nelson Publishers, 2013

Genre: Fantasy, Adventure
Target Audience: Boys and Girls 12-16
Subjects: Spiritual warfare, Prayer, God’s will, Loss
Summary: Jonah is still reeling from his loss. He can’t seem to find his footing again. He’s become a star back in Peacefield on the basketball team by taking advantage of his nephilim characteristics. But he can’t stop seeing the fallen. He can’t stop his memories. He can’t forget who he is. Meanwhile Eliza and Jeremiah and his friends back at school are in need of him but he’s too busy trying to forget who he is and ignore the reality of the world around him to be much help. It seems the fallen have won after all. And they are thrilled! There is plenty of damage they can do if Jonah is unwilling to fight them!
Notes: The fourth in the Sons of Angels series, Truth Runner 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 on Jonah’s struggle after the death of a loved one. He has completely abandoned his faith, his family, his very identity in his anger and hurt. The question is what will it take for Jonah to accept his trial and turn back to God. Due to these issues it makes the book seem as though it’s for a bit more mature audience than the first two. However, this book is centered truly around the truths of Scripture and because of that, I highly recommend it.
Recommendation Scale: 5/5
