The Turning

MY REVIEW turning

Hope Is Dead.

That is the mantra that global communications expert and advertising guru Trent Cooper wants to get out to the world. But he has a problem. Five people, from different cultures and backgrounds, believe they have heard from God. And the message? Hope is anything but dead.


The Turning, by Davis Bunn is a refreshing read. You won’t find here an old familiar story plot repackaged. In depth characters and an intriguing plot line makes The Turning a very interesting and inspiring read. Recommended.


The message was unexpected but instantly recognizable. A voice resonated from a distance and somehow from within. Against all earthly logic, it carried a divine command. And five very different people knew they were summoned to obey.

Their actions were demanding, but not particularly grand. Only later would they see a pattern emerge — one that links their tasks together and comes to challenge the cultural direction of the nation. They realize that one small personal response unveiled a new realm of moral responsibility. And this affirmation of everyday hope captures the attention of millions.

But power and money are at stake. Malicious elements soon align themselves to counter the trend. To succeed they must also undermine its source. Can we really believe that God speaks to people today? Surely this must be dismissed as superstition or delusion. These well-intentioned but misguided individuals should not be allowed to cast our society back into the Dark Ages. The public debate and media frenzy place an unprecedented spotlight on knowing and doing God’s will. The five encounter threats, but try to remain steadfast in their faith.

Had God indeed imparted wisdom on selected individuals? Is this sweep of events part of his divine purpose?
