Through My Eyes by Alton Gansky

Through My Eyes is written in a completely different tone than that of its predecessor, By My Hands. It starts out with Rachel and Jeff already married. Rachel goes unconscious in their closet one day while he's gone. No one finds her until he comes home. While unconscious, Rachel has a dream about God showing her where to find the Ark of the Covenant. When I read this, I thought, Oh great.
Then the book proceeds to introduce several characters having similar visions all around the world. They have nothing to do with each other, but each vision tells them to go see Jeff and Rachel.
Once they all meet up, they all talk about their visions and about where they can find the Ark. And of course, someone else wants to find the Ark too. Someone evil.
From here, the group splits up and goes to two random spots in the world to look for the Ark. Of course, they find the ark, defeat the bad guys, and all go home happy.
The characters are sappy and perfect. Since Gansky has Jeff and Rachel married, he decided to come up with another romance. The end of the book is filled with the good characters defying death and also several conversions to Christ at the same time.
If it's possible, this book is worse than the first.
1.5 stars
