In The Valley of Dry Bones, Jerry B. Jenkins overlays the ancient End Times prophecies of Ezekiel onto the landscape of modern California. A clash of cultures, ethnicities, religions, and politics trigger terrorism blamed on a deadly drought that pits friend against friend with the future of the
country at stake.
This was a good book. Set in future California, that has now become a desert and has been evacuated, this book follows Zeke and the Holdouts. Most of California is uninhabitable but some have stayed and stay under the radar. The Holdouts witness to those who have stayed behind. Zeke is an elder of the group and firm believer in God. I really loved Zeke. He went to God with everything. The whole scenario was scary and absolutely an 'end times' setting. The trials the Holdouts went through were a roller coaster. I think this book is specifically geared toward people who are already Christians and those who enjoy futuristic, apocalyptic books. It really is quite well written.
It was a 4/5 for me. I liked the overall story but had issues with some of the plot.
