Hell Shall Not Prevail (book 5 in the series)

5-* sealReviewed By Christian Sia for Readers’ Favorite

Hell Shall Not Prevail: Apostle John Series by Susan M.B. Preston is a powerful blend of historical fiction and inspirational writing, a story with a setting that uncovers great historical and cultural elements during the period of the Roman Empire. In this entry in the series, the author takes readers on a memorable journey, exploring the life of the Apostle John who suffers imprisonment and more. In an intriguing and captivating style, the author introduces historical and compelling characters, and raises strong religious and spiritual questions related to the destiny of the followers of Jesus, the life of the early Fellowship, and the general sentiments in regard to the message of Jesus.

Susan M.B. Preston doesn’t only demonstrate a detailed knowledge of the Bible and the life of the earliest followers of Jesus, but an equally strong gift for compelling writing. The story is skillfully plotted with characters that readers quickly become familiar with. I enjoyed the way the conflict is developed and couldn’t help noticing the gentle, yet powerful revolution brought about by the work of John the Apostle. The writing is excellent and the prose flows with uninterrupted fluidity, featuring great descriptions, intelligent and well-written dialogues, and a setting that comes out vividly in the reader’s imagination. The author has a rare gift for combining faith, culture, and history to recreate a story that plunges the reader into the life of the early followers of Christ. Hell Shall Not Prevail: Apostle John Series is entertaining reading, but it is also a very inspirational book.
