Transhuman by Rena Groot

This is Rena Groot’s second book in her trilogy based on the biblical end times.  This is a continuation of Josh’s path as he navigates the events and struggles of what has come to pass.    

I liked many aspects of this book, and there were a few things I didn’t care for as much.  

Some of the things that I thought were strong in the book were:

The creative way that the author crafted real world events based off of the biblical book of Revelations.  I thought some of the details were unique and fun and illustrated what the end times could look like.  

I also appreciated the scriptural references throughout, especially those outside of Revelations.  I feel that this added solidity to the story and perhaps suggests a little more than just fiction.   

Overall, I didn’t care for the dialogue, or perhaps the style thereof.  I felt as it was unrealistic at times and it took my mind away from the storyline.  Last, I felt that there was a good amount of detail that could have been added to paint a better picture and develop the characters. 

Overall, if you enjoy biblical end times stories, this book provides a pretty solid storyline and was a very quick read.  

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit and the opinions here are my own.

Transhuman Kick-Off Package

About the Book

Book: Transhuman – Will We Obey God or Play God?

Author: Rena Groot

Genre: Apocalyptic Fiction

Release date: 2021

This work of apocalyptic fiction is based on reality to come. The lines have been purposely blurred between pure fact and pure fiction. It is a warning based on God’s Word. He has told us a time of unprecedented terror is about to come upon the earth. His wrath will be poured out on sinful and unrepentant humanity in a series of judgements. The intensity and severity of these judgements will be unparalleled in human history. The judgements will be on a global scale that will take place over a seven-year period.

The judgements are reserved for those who have chosen to reject Christ. Even in wrath God is displaying mercy. He wants the lost to be found. All who have rebelled against Him are given a chance to find Him. This is His last and final call to the sons and daughters of Adam. Sadly, many will harden their hearts and turn away from the most beautiful invitation ever to have been extended in all of human history. They will curse God and stay entrenched in their rebellious ways.

God does not hide this awful reality from us. He wants us to be wise and flee from the wrath to come. If we are already His He wants us to warn others—to point them to the narrow path that leads to life. TRANSHUMAN is based on my thoughts of what the world may look like at the halfway point in the Tribulation. The Rapture has already taken place. All who have been invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb are seated. Time will soon be no more. The curtains are opening on the world stage.
