Davis Bunn has done it again. He has plowed new ground in his latest novel, The Turning, an April 1, 2014, release by River North Fiction. Where others have written books of theology on the Lordship of Jesus – the scriptural basis, the aspects of, and rewards of it, Davis Bunn has demonstrated the operation of Lordship.
Five people from different locations in the US, with different family histories and different financial bases, have been directly moved upon by the Holy Spirit. With nothing in common other than their basic surrender to Jesus in salvation, these five people have heard from the Holy Spirit and now must choose the Lordship of Jesus over their own desires and understandings. Not knowing the reason or outcome of any action they are moved upon to make, they must choose to obey the Lord from a basis of faith alone. Through them, the Lord has begun a campaign to call America back to him. Unknown to them, at first, the devil has also mounted a powerful attempt for the hearts and souls of the younger generation.
The book is a novel – with a novel idea; and regardless of how the story plays out, it cannot help but pull on the hearts and consciences of true believers who take time to read it. Be prepared to question your own standing with the Lord in the matter of Lordship. Be prepared to hurt deeply with what you may see about yourself. And be prepared to renew your understanding about/and desire to be involved in true Lordship.
At the end of the book, you will find a rather interesting invitation that can greatly affect your future. Enjoy!
