Silenced is the sequel to Soon by Jerry Jenkins, one half of the writing team that came up with the Left Behind series. It's a little different from Left Behind in that it doesn't mention the rapture. It chronicles the trials and tribulations of a new believer trying to fight for Christ in a world that has abandoned religion. The main character, Paul Stepola is a double agent, working for Christ and also for the National Peace Organization.
This is a wonderful book that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys Left Behind and other similar books.
Wonderful!! I love Jerry Jenkins writing. He can pull you in a book. He makes you feel like you are really part of the story. This is second in the series of three.
WOW! What a series...

A gripping, futuristic thriller that will keep you glued to the page.
