When Angels Cry: A Book Review


Product Details

Mary Lu Tyndall's When Angels Cry follows the life of Angelica Smoke, a young, single mom who works at a mediocre bar for a sleazy boss. Our world has been ravaged by sin. The government has banned the true Bible, and had it rewritten until it's nothing more than a watered down version of the original, allowing sin of all kinds for the sake of "inclusiveness." Wars, atrocities, plagues, and famine all rage across the world, and Angelica, who's been given the gift of seer by God, knows it won't be long before Christ raptures His church. She's desperate to save the souls of as many people as she can before that happens, but nobody--the government included--is making that easy for her.

The Lord gives Angelica a directive to warn Daniel Cain, a prominent head pastor of a popular megachurch in town, but she stalls to the point of denying God because she and Daniel were once a loving couple. In those days, Daniel was on fire for the Lord, while she laughed at his passion. Now the roles are reversed. Daniel has become lukewarm, at best, in his faith, and is leading his congregation astray as a result. Eventually she obeys God, warns Daniel, and they renew their acquaintanceship. Daniel hurt her terribly when they parted, and she's determined not to repeat her mistake, although her young son is thrilled with having a man in his life, even temporarily. Daniel, on the other hand, can't seem to dismiss Angelica from his mind, and vows to  rescue her from the clutches of a dangerous cult.  

Tyndall's book is an interesting look at the end days, taking us into the lives of a few people rather than the entire world, and shows us what happens when just one person does what is right and just. I had just one niggling thought of theology at the end of the book, but won't spoil anything by discussing it. This book was entertaining, thought-provoking, and filled with the love of our Heavenly Father for His children. I can heartily recommend it to both Christian and secular readers.
