The Witness, a review

I enjoyed reading The Witness by Josh McDowell. The story was fairly intriguing. My one complaint would be, who is the attended audience? If this book is written for non-believing adults then they will mostly likely be turned away about the God talk in beginning portion of the book. And if it is for believing adults then the need to include a straight forward gospel message is pointless. However, if this book is geared toward teens then maybe these are fine to include. I have read several Christian novels that have a gospel message without including the direct gospel message which I believe is better if the book is to reach the masses. Despite that one minor thing, I thought the action scenes were well written and the character’s mostly made realistic choices. I recommend this book for teens in Christian homes over adults.

I received this book from Tyndale in exchange for a review.

  1. Great review for Josh Mcdowel!

    Can I send you a free copy to review? It is SCARS: An Amazing End-Times Prophecy Novel and about a girl who goes through the tribulation.

    The publisher is Spring Harvest and is available at Amazon.
