Hope is dead. That is the message that Trent Cooper hopes will take the younger generations by storm- while simultaneously launching him into a corporate career of power and wealth. Working for a media company, he hopes to use the seeming despair of the millennials to drive the latest fad by taking away any sense of hope they may have, and making a mockery of religion. Soon the phrase is seen everywhere- from advertisements, to trendies on street corners holding ‘hope is dead’ signs. A new culture of despondency has been born, and it seems there is no way to stop the evil that is rising. . .
But God has a plan. One by one, He is calling to the hearts of those who will listen, drawing people in from all walks of life, asking them to step out in faith to do what they know is right. The choice lays before them- ignore the call, or choose to follow His lead no matter the cost- something they call ‘the turning’. As one step slowly leads to the next, this diverse group of people are finally brought together for the ultimate revelation of God’s plan to fight against the darkness, and remind the world of the ultimate hope that is through Jesus Christ.
Wow! What a story- this book gave me chills. Bunn is a fantastic author, masterfully weaving a host of colorful characters into a thought-provoking story that will both challenge and inspire you. The premise of this book is only a slightly amplified version of reality, and all it takes is a fleeting glance at today’s youth to discover that we are surrounded by a culture of death and despair. Skulls, zombies, witchcraft, and an open mockery of Christian morals are now the social norm, and God is calling all believers to take a stand and to shine the light of Jesus Christ into the darkness -now. The question is, will we take the turning and obey?
