Check Out The Turning by Davis Bunn!!

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? 
The movement may herald a profound renewal - one that some are calling The Turning...

MY THOUGHTS-I normally love Davis Bunn's writing style. His books are interesting, thought-provoking and well written. This one didn't really differ much but it was a style that was new to me. It took me longer to get through it as there is a lot to think about with this one. Most of his historical ones are interesting but I found this one to be quite interesting in its own right.

Throughout the country people are hearing a voice. These are different people from different races and cultures but all are hearing a message. And while each one hears the same voice, the directions are different for each of them. The characters are all well written but my favorite aspect of this was how it all came together. These people with no previous knowledge of each other all hear the same voice with directions and even though they don't seem to be linked at all it turns out in a way I didn't expect. In fact, I wasn't quite sure where the author was going through probably the first third of the book. Not until later did everything work out and I saw what was going on.

This is a book that you will enjoy if you like modern, present day stories. Maybe even some suspense and action too:) This makes you sit up and pay attention to how you are living your life. Very interesting Mr Bunn!! Definitely a book I would give 5 out of 5 stars!
