    Another Wild Ride

    Posted by Nate Kowallis on 5th Oct 2023

    Charlie's third installment of the Dakota Knox series continues to grip the heart, intellect, and imagination. Dakota and Afton battle through a new series of events and ethical questions as they now fight back against the bad guys. Charlie clearly enjoyed himself as he snuck in references to Christian apologists and pop culture, providing short lectures and conversational wrestling with Biblical principles. One thing I greatly appreciate about these books is that provide experiences and circumstances where Biblical ideas take effect. What does a God-honoring dating ethic look like? How do we understand the problem of evil? What's the boundary between self-defense and murder? Charlie provides insight into these issue and then illustrates how they influence Christians' decisions and actions. One thing I greatly appreciate about THIS book is the occurrence of Hell. It may seem insensitive at first, but when you allow yourself to feel the tension of a hostage situation, murderous threats, and the meta-narrative of life before God, Dakota's threats to send the bad guys to hell makes good sense. He puts the whole thing in context: the bad guys aren't just doing bad things, they're resisting God, and there's a sure end for them if they don't repent--whether or not they escape. To the victim, this is a comfort: the perpetrator will be judged, all wrongs will be made right, and God defends His children. Hell is an uncomfortable reality, and some people today claim it is one of the reasons they leave Christianity. But the bad guys in the book seem fit for it, and Charlie's inclusion of it provides an extra layer of justice to the novel, and clarity of how seriously God treats all sin. Job well done, Charlie. Looking forward to book 4! May this labor continue to be faithful and fruitful.
