Out of grief and loss, the author Phillip D. Wilson brings you the vision he has for his son Noah and his son’s girlfriend, Kelsie. One spring day, two teens are enjoying a motorcycle ride, when suddenly a car from nowhere changes their lives in an instant.
Join them as they begin a new life at the end of this one… as they step into a place called Heaven.
Experience the beauty, the adventure, the city of New Jerusalem and the mysteries of the King’s Canyon where faith becomes sight, and death becomes… The Last Great Adventure.
Here are my thoughts:
God's path for each of us is not always what we imagine ...
Yet as Christians we believe there is a Heaven...
A pastor of the Portland First Free Will baptist Church, Phillip D. Wilson lost his son to a tragic accident which claimed also the young man's soon to be fiance's life.
Knowing in his heart he will see his son again, Wilson decided to write a novel using the Bible's teachings and imagined what Heaven would be like.
Not all of us will agree Wilson's description might be right of course but we can all agree that it will be more wonderful than any of us can imagine!
In his novel 'The Last Great Adventure' Wilson sketches a rich panorama of colour, countryside and unimaginable beauty as he lovingly dreams of his son Noah and his girlfriend Kelsie as they venture on their last great adventure in a place called Heaven...
A work of fiction, the author took a few liberties with the chronological order of events as described in the Bible. However as he promptly points out in his afterword, these events are always open to interpretation!
Describing his writing of 'The Last Great Adventure' mostly as therapeutic, the author's faith none the less resonates as he shares his personal views about love, friendship and family values!
If you ever have lost someone dear to you, this is a novel for you!
Note to Readers: A grand book and well worth 5 stars!
I only wish the Editor had taken far more care with the final aspect of the novel... I was saddened by the spelling mistakes and missing words for the author!
About the Author:
Phillip D. Wilson is a writer, speaker, pastor and musician from the Middle Tennessee area. He and his wife Sheri live in a renovated 1940's farm house north of Nashville, where Phillip serves as a bi-vocational pastor.
Phil had written for pleasure for several years, but began his first novel, The Last Great Adventure, in response to the loss of his teenage son Noah and Noah's girlfriend Kelsie in a tragic 2010 motorcycle accident. The grieving process caused Phil to try to imagine what it must be like to live in the afterlife of Heaven, and The Last Great Adventure was born.
Phil is currently working on a sequel, The Last Great Rescue, slated to be complete in 2014.
