The Company ~ Litfuse Blog Tour

A meteor explodes into the planet. Massive earthquakes rock the land as giant tsunamis engulf the coasts. Sleeping volcanoes violently erupt, filling the sky with clouds of suffocating ash, and soon, the world is shrouded in darkness. Last Day has come, bringing death, destruction, and despair. Yet hidden in a mountain valley, the Brigons manage to survive, but with no power and little food or water, their hope is fading into the eternal night. Then a voice calls out in the darkness and offers to bring them light.

This is the story of Sam Mitchell, an engineer with one of the power managers in Brigos Glen. Seventy years have passed since light was restored to the village. Few remember the time before Last Day or the strangers who helped them in their time of need. But Sam has heard the stories and, with the guidance of his friend, seeks to help others as he goes about his seemingly unimportant, routine existence. That is, until he receives an ominous order from beyond the mountains that will change his life forever.

For centuries mankind has sought God . . . not simply to find Him, but to understand Him. This quest has left many struggling in a maze of contradictions-one God but a Father, one God but a Son, one God but a Spirit-leading them to the ultimate question: Who is the Trinity? The answer is revealed in The Company by Chuck Graham, a clever allegory, carefully woven with surprising revelation of who God is, who we are before Him, and our calling to love and encourage each other.

My thoughts...

A well written allegory with wonderful characters, mystery, and hope. In a world of darkness, after a meteor hits the earth, only the Brigons are left, they are near despair when a voice calls out of the darkness... "do you need help?" Frightened the elder asks the voice to show himself. Instead the voice is heard from the other side..."do you need help?".

After agreeing to accept help, the plan is explained and they agree to follow it exactly. Seventy years pass and things are not as they should be, there are those who stray from the plan, whose greed overtakes them. And there are a very few who understand but do not do all they can do. Judgement is coming.

Graham is a wonderful story teller, this book was very enjoyable and an easy read, I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

I received an ecopy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
