    One thought on “They Shall See God”

    1. Nicely done, clever plot device The theological aspect contributed, rather than detracted, from the story So many Christian novels are hokey This one is not.

    2. This suspense novel uses a complex plot to bring the past and present together for a Jewish rabbi, Ruth, and a Christian mother, Kate Although from two different cultures, they are bound together by a crime that occurred 25 years beforehand I especially liked the way the plot intertwined the spiritual journey of Ruth and Kate with their search for answers to the crazy tragedies that keep occurring around them If you are interested in religious perspectives from both Judaism and Christianity, thi [...]

    3. It is apparent in this book that Dickson did his homework They Shall See God offers a story with perspectives from both sides of the Jewish Christian divide, and it is often not a view that all of us will enjoy My wife and I attended a Messianic Jewish Congregation for a number of years, and experienced many of the attitudes from both mainstream Christian and Jewish individuals, that Dickson illustrates in this story These perceptions and tensions are woven well into the story to heighten the dr [...]

    4. I had mentioned in a previous review of an Athol Dickson novel that he was becoming one of my favorite writers Dickson s ability to write suspenseful Christian fiction with literary quality merits wider recognition outside of the genre.They Shall See God tells the story of two women, Ruth Gold and Kate Flint, who were best friends as kids growing up in New Orleans They witnessed as children a murder to a high profile Christian woman in their community The fallout of that murder trial ruined thei [...]

    5. Athol Dickson has become a favorite author After finishing a book of his, I think about it for days I m not sure I can think of anything to say about this book that is not a spoiler It has an extremely cunning plot, and I was caught by surprise when the mystery was revealed That doesn t happen very often I will say that this book is not for the squeamish, but it is certainly not as dark and gruesome as Ted Dekker.

    6. Has one man had such an effect on our history, our world religions, and our hearts that one mention of his name can inflame one person to kill, or move another person to quickly change the subject out of unease, or cause another person to smile out of their overwhelming peace and love that they feel for the change He has made in their life Yes, there most certainly was is such a man He name is Jesus Christ, and He is much than just a mere man which is why He has such a strong effect on people H [...]

    7.

    10. Really enjoyed this book The ending was a bit predictable but it had sort of a comic justice to it, so I didn t mind too much.This is a story of 2 women, one Jewish, one Christian, who were best friends as children They witness a murder, or the moments right after the murder, and have to testify in court The murderer is sent to prison The story really starts 25 years later when the murderer is released from prison At this point the two childhood friends no longer speak to each other This is due [...]

    11. Warning Severe hatred toward Christians inside The book s description should hold this disclaimer I m not even sure how the author is able to get away with calling this a Christian fiction novel there s nothing Christian about it In the very first chapter hatred for Christians is quite evident At first, I thought maybe it was just to help set the tone between several characters, but later I m not so sure It seemed apparent that this is the author s feelings and less of the characters Normally i [...]

    12. Katy and Ruth are childhood friends that witness a terrible event at Ruth s Jewish community service swimming center After the tragedy, Ruth s parents decide that Katy is no longer a suitable friend for Ruth because of her Christian faith Fast forward to present day, where Ruth and Katy are unwillingly reunited after learning that the man they thought would be in jail for life is suddenly released from jail Immediately after his release, a series of strange incidents and murders start to take pl [...]

    13. Finished They Shall See God by Athol Dickson I give it 4 stars The only reason I give it 4 stars is because some of the language just a little was hard to understand because it is about the Jewish religion No this book isn t about the religion per se This book is about two friends, children one is Jewish and one is Christian and they witness a murder and then they cannot be friends any But then the man accused of the murder is released from prison and strange deaths starts happening all over tow [...]

    14. Years ago, I read and really enjoyed Athol Dickson s The Gospel According to Moses, so when I ran across this novel, I had to pick it up when I saw it as a Kindle freebie apparently recently updated by the author I m glad I did.The novel is a murder mystery suspense with a literary undertone about relations between Christians and Jews I enjoyed how the author helped me understand why Jews might be wary of Christians and vice versa , as well as his insights into people who believe in Christ, but [...]

    15. This novel was truly moving and gripped my attention and curiosity throughout It gave me a better understanding of the religous conflicts between the Christian and Jewish faiths how stubborness, hostility, and anger could be overcome in the midst of trials and persecution The transformation of each character beautifully unfolds, as some move closer and one moves further from the God they love Jesus words in Matthew 5 8 ring true thoughout Dickson s pages Blessed are the pure in heart, for they s [...]

    16. The beginning starts a little confusedly, but that s because there s so many people s lives intwined with the story that it takes a bit to sink it in Once that s overcome though, this is a good read The two main characters of the book are a little annoying Ruth is too confrontational, and Kate is too passive but as the story progresses it comes to light why they are that way I particularly like the ending chapter, the they shall see God scene where just that phrase itself really hits home.

    17. At first I wasn t sure of what to think as there were numerous plots you had to be able to follow But boy did this one progress quickly And just when you have the ending figured out The book shows how complicated relationships can be Especially when mistrust relating to differences in faith are allowed to continue without a dialogue in this case Judaism vs Christianity A definate must read

    18. I enjoyed the Jewish and Christian cultures and how they can oppose each other The first 10 chapters were a bit difficult to get through as there were so many characters and trying to understand each of their significance to the storyline Once I plowed through that I really enjoyed the story and suspense The ending was good too as it didn t end in Christian cliches as so many Christian books tend towards.

    19. I enjoyed this books, it is a book you need to read from cover to cover to understand the chain of events that took place This was my first book by Athol Dickson and I can t wait to read his other books.

    20. For me, the beginning of the book moved rather slowly but once I got into the heat of what was going on I couldn t wait to see what would happen next It is suspenseful and will keep you guessing Great read

    21. I thought when I first started to read this book that it was going to be boring WOW was I ever wrong Great book, exciting storyline, and very mysterious I would love to read something elese by this author.

    22. LostLostwas confused from the beginning Stopped reading after 3rd chapter stories need to capture my interest within the first couple of chapters.

    23. I liked the idea and story line but thought it dragged at times and was somewhat difficult to get through Author definitely needs a proofreader

    24. Awesome book Athol Dickson is one of my new favourite authors He tells this story intelligently and he didn t kill all the good guys as I d feared.

    25. A master of suspense without the stuff that usually puts me off My heart was pounding within the first few pages IF you can avoid reading any reviews, it s even better

    26. I really like Athol Dickson s writing This wasn t my favorite of his books, but it was still very thought provoking and interesting.

    27. Je hoeft je niet af te laten schrikken door het religieuze aspect van het boek, het is niet irritant aanwezig Erg spannend

    28. interesting and bizarre tale but the strife and tension and psychotic aspects of it all seemed like a bit of a stretch.
