The Hand of God (Pastor Charlie)
by Tim Miller
This book was gifted to me from the author for an honest review. Thank You!
God save me from a righteous man. Pastor Charlie is doing God's work by killing sinners. I personally don't approve with the amount of murder that has been done in the world in God's name. Pastor Charlie meets a man, David Davidson, who tells him that God told David to tell Pastor Charlie to look out for someone who will need to be dealt with. Bishop Hoover shows up and apparently brings a woman back from the dead. Pastor Charlie gets visions of people sinning which he takes to mean God is talking to him. Pastor Charlie then kills the people who he saw sin in his vision. Bishop Hoover and David Davidson both tell Charlie that he doesn't know who he is and that there is more to his visions then what he thinks. “We Protestants are usually rather conservative when it comes to the supernatural.” David Davidson is not exactly a normal human being but then neither is Charlie or Bishop Hoover. I wasn't sure how I felt about this book at first. A pastor who thinks he is doing God's work by killing people? Not really my idea of a sympathetic character. I thought it was very well written and a quick read but I didn't feel like I was liking it. But then 100 pages into the book plot twists abound and the story started getting really interesting. “Life was so much easier when I was just preaching on Sundays and killing sinners on the side.” By the end of the book my only thought was 'Wow'! 5 stars.
