Book Review: Nick of Time

This is my first time ever reading a book by Tim Downs. The Nick of time is a very fast read as I was able to read it in one night. It has plenty of suspense, humor, and information about bugs and forensics.

However, I did receive this book from a Christian publisher so I kept looking for references to Jesus Christ or even Christianity in general. They weren't there. There was a part in the book when he thought he was dying and he realized that maybe there really was something out there. I'm hoping that since this is a book in a series it will build up to Nick's salvation.

I do understand we live in a time of soft, watered down, compromising, wishy washy Christianity. But I can still hope.

Disclaimer: I review books based on their tie to Christianity and Jesus Christ not necessarily their entertainment value.
I received this book from Booksneeze in exchange for an honest review.


  1. I think one of the things you'll find with Thomas Nelson books is that not all of their novels feature direct/obvious spirituality, though they do have some. Though a Christian publisher, they want to publish books that they think have good stories. I don't know if it's fair to a novel for it to be reviewed based on the spirituality present. That seems better fitted, in my view, to non-fiction books.

  2. Well hopefully I'm not the only person who likes to read Christian fiction books about Jesus and His power to change lives, so my reviews are directed towards people like me. When I buy a book, I always wish I could find out before hand if it is a book I might be interested in. Hopefully, my reviews will help similarly minded people. Thanks!
