The Josiah Files

[The Josiah Files] The Josiah Files
by Linda Hall
Thomas Nelson, 1993
Amazon.ca: paperback
Amazon.com: paperback
Recommended by: Greg Slade

Set 200 years in the future, the story told in The Josiah Files takes place in a society where the World Order Church, based on a mushy mix of New Age beliefs, with a hidden underlay of Satanism, has replaced Christianity. The Bible has been virtually forgotten, and even the word "Christian" means nothing to most people. Clave Hammill, the leader of a WOC church, stumbles across a Bible and a pastor's diary from just before the purge, and becomes a Christian. Then, his problems begin.

For the most part, this is fairly well-written, despite one major technical mistake. On the other hand, the "bad guys" are fairly predictable and two-dimensional (which, to be fair, seems to be a widespread failing in Christian fiction.) The plot also feels a bit unfinished. Some very threatening things seem to be foreshadowed, but never come to pass, which makes me wonder if this book is setting the stage for a sequel.
