9780615644783: The Glimpse

The DreamIn 2007, God gave Grant Carroll a critical end times message for the American church through a chilling dream his wife had. Not long after, he began to notice uncanny similarities between the dream and real world events happening to Christians in the news. Grant felt led to turn the dream into a piece of Christian fiction that would grab people's attention, so they would understand the dire warning of coming persecution, before it's too late. That story is called The Glimpse, and it's for youth, young adults, parents,church leaders and the Christian Church at large. Its message is for you. 

Story Synopsis Austin Kelly is about to learn a lesson: Be careful when you pray for God to change you, because He answers prayer. Even though he's a Sunday School teacher, Austin's faith in Jesus Christ is no match for his fear of rejection from others. Lizzie Kelly has more courage than her husband, but struggles to find fulfillment and meaning in her job at their church. The couple's friends aren't faring much better. Computer tech Daniel Cabrera fights disappointment with the direction his career has taken, and even more frustration with the church youth he teaches. His wife, Jackie, strives to maintain a sense of control over her life, but it's quickly faltering. Faced with churches dying across New York City, the four Christian teachers have a cry in their hearts for their lives to make a difference. God answers their cry by throwing them into a world that looks like a nightmare version of the United States. Everything is so similar, yet totally different, starting with the fact that Christians are nearly extinct after decades of persecution. They soon discover it is a fascist nation, where anyone who professes faith in Christ risks their life. The four travelers encounter a group of teenagers that turn out to be one of the last surviving churches, led by their high school teacher, Eric Peterson. With no visible way to get home, Austin, Lizzie and their friends join the underground church in their fight to spread the Gospel while avoiding the National Police. Their task is made even more difficult when revival breaks out in the local high school and draws unwanted attention, but they know they can't stop until their work is complete and the Lord makes a way for them to go home...if there is one.

From the Author:

Growing up, I never saw myself writing Christian books, much less Christian fiction, but I've learned that sometimes God gives us dreams we never could have imagined ourselves. For most authors, a book starts off as an idea that grows over time into a storyline. For me, it was quite different. Early one morning, my wife woke me up saying she had just experienced the most vivid dream in her life, and she went on to tell me every detail. Her dream went on to become the outline for The Glimpse. I feel that I am just as much a scribe as a writer in this instance. While this story is not intended to give predictions of the future, the Lord has shown me several reasons why this story is so important and relevant to the American church right now.

  • 70-80% of Christian youth leave the Church once they reach college age. The result is that the American Church body is slowly dying out.

  • For those in the Millennial generation  (born from 1982 to 2002) fewer than 1% hold to a biblical worldview. God's Word is no longer seen as absolute truth.

  • There have been several instances in recent news where Christians in America were persecuted for publicly preaching the Gospel.

My prayer is that this book will make an impact on Christianity in America, and around the world for the sake of Christ's Kingdom. It's a big goal, but with God all things are possible.

From the Back Cover:

Would you hold on to faith . . . if all else seemed lost? Austin, Lizzie, Daniel and Jackie are four believers in Christ who are missing something in their spiritual walk, something they can't find on their own. They see the church dying around them, and they desperately grasp for answers. Without warning, they are supernaturally transported to a place that looks and feels like the United States they know, but only at first glance. They soon learn that it's a fascist nation in which Christians and all who oppose the government are severely persecuted. They encounter a small group of teenage believers, secretly meeting in a high school basement. The believers take them in, and the four friends get a glimpse of a world where the church is almost dead, and faith is all that keeps believers alive. Along with the group's leader, Eric Peterson, they work to help the fledgling church survive and grow, but danger awaits them at every turn. The clandestine NSA and the National Police have eyes and ears everywhere. It's a fight to survive, and to find a way home...if there is one.
