THE HARBINGER

A Novel by Jonathan Cahn


Reviewed by Molly Noble Bull


There is a right and a wrong way to do everything from driving a car without crashing into a telephone pole to discovering what is important in life. As an author, I sometimes look at rules and regulations set by teachers and critics I never met personally in deciding how to create successful novels, writers who may or may not agree with me on things most important in life.
Yet though all my years as a writer and then as a published author, I learned that there are things more important than rules and regulations. They are truth and inspiration.
The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn is one of the most inspiring novels I’ve ever read.



It’s really more than a novel. The author, a Messianic Christian rabbi, states that the facts in the book are true. He simply chose to write the truth in a narrative format. 
The book is about an ancient mystery—the secret of America’s future. The Harbinger is not a book designed to cheer one up on a gloomy day. Jonathan Cahn is not a “next year is going to be better than this year” pastor. In fact, The Harbinger sounds like it was written by an Old Testament prophet. The truth is always better than selling beachfront property to those who need to seek higher ground, and Jonathan tells it like it is (or will be) rather than as we might want it to be.
I give The Harbinger five stars because it inspired me and was based on scriptures from the Bible, and it will inspire you, too. Click below to see and hear a twenty-eight minute interview with Jonathan Cahn and learn how to buy the book.

Hi Molly -

I've heard interviews with Jonathan on several programs. His insights are sobering to say the least.

Thanks for the excellent review.

Blessings,
Susan :)
