"Second Chance" by Jerry B. Jenkins & Tim LaHaye

About this book:

  “Faced with the truth behind the disappearances, Judd, Vicki, Lionel, and Ryan have decisions to make. Will they accept Christ’s forgiveness, or will they blame God for abandoning them and taking away their families?
  While the others are making their decisions, Lionel get a disturbing message from his Uncle André. Afraid his uncle is going to take his own life, Lionel rushes to Chicago, praying he’ll reach André before it’s too late.”

Spiritual Content- The Rapture has happened (all four main characters were left behind); Witnessing & getting saved; Prayers; Many Talks about God, Jesus, trusting & the Rapture; ‘H’s are not capital when referring to God; At first Judd is mad at God; Ryan doesn’t want to believe; Many mentions of Church & faiths; Many mentions of Heaven & Hell; Mentions of Bible reading.

My personal Rating-
{These ratings are for content, since everyone has a different opinion on the Rapture and how it will happen.}
Ahh, my first ever ship = Judd & Vicki. Gotta be honest though, I still have a hard time when grown men write the point of view of a teenage girl. These authors do a pretty good job, but it’s still a bit weird to me. Lots of repeating from the first book, but that’s pretty normal for a series. ;)  

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
