Wakulla Book Review: Wake the Dead, by Victoria Buck


This futuristic novel is set in a time where science and evolutionary technology has replaced faith in God and religion. The vast majority of the world’s population no longer suffers from diseases such as cancer due to the vast improvements of science. Also, the government has taken over every aspect of people’s daily lives. Where you work and live is decided by them. Everyone is on the world grid.

Television super celebrity Chase Sterling hosts the number-one rated show—a show that turns people’s mundane and impoverished lives into the life of their dreams. While trying to do something to woo the audience, Chase is introduced to Dr. Robert Fiender, who claims he can give people eternal life by replacing their natural organs with the one his medical team has made.

If this is true, man can [re]create man, thus eliminating the God factor altogether. Before Chase can put the doctor’s claims to the test, he is shot by a high-powered rifle during one of the shows. The weapon blows a hole right through him. However, when he awakes he finds his body has been rebuilt. Not only with new organs, but computer chips ad sensors have been installed in his head and skeleton. He is the first human robot. The downside is now they control him.

God begins to speak to Chase and he finds there are many Christians who live outside the “grid.” This sends Chase on a journey to find what true eternal life really is. He now becomes a hero to their cause.
This book is highly enjoyable and I recommend it highly.

Wakulla Book Review by B. Meyer


I want to personally thank all the men who are reviewing the books written by JOHN 3:16 AUTHORS. I am thankful that we are able to bless them and appreciate the encouragement given to us by their reviews. 

Their insights, comments, and encouragment means a lot. Steve said I (Lorilyn Roberts) could visit the prison and I hope to do that sometime in the near future. I ultimately look forward to the day when we are all free in the Lord's presence to worship together our Risen King!

Each WEEK (usually on Tuesday), we are posting reviews from Wakulla Correctional inmates of 
John 3:16 books. 
Inmates are loving the new books from John 3:16 authors. Chaplain Steve Fox  is adding the new books to the prison library in this initiative to "change lives to ensure a safer Florida."
