Christian book review: The Omega Objective by Wesley Hankins the West Meadow Crow
The official blurb: In possession of elitist information, Roger Converse—a key player in special ops intelligence—begins to struggle with the claims of Christianity, while a tangled web of coincidence usually reserved only for conspiracy theory becomes rational policy. His life depends on where he places his trust as he sees a darker side to the proposed utopian peace about to be introduced to the world.
It’s hardly “rational” policy, but be that as it may
This is Christian Brad Thor or Vince Flynn—a no-holds-barred black ops fight by a loner hero against a massive global conspiracy. There’s not much more than a few endtimes hints, but the book ends with a lot of the story still untold. The spiritual side of things is only hinted at. But Roger Converse makes an excellent black ops hero. There’s even a bit of romance.
This is a very enjoyable book. My only quibble is at the spiritual level. It’s somewhere between mainline and evangelical. The believers don’t have any regular communication with the Lord and the Spirit’s works are far too well hidden. The Bible is virtually a magic book in that it has power, when we know that the power which backs up the book is from the Holy Spirit. I know the heathen don’t see the working of the Holy Spirit, but the believers should be able to. AND the Lord talks with His people on a normal and continual basis. But those are minor quibbles.
This is a fun read
I recommend it on a purely entertainment level. It’s good, clean fun.

This looks good, David! I have far too many to read that I cannot justify adding this one to by list!!
