|"For more than forty years it has been my privilege to keep company with warriors. In ABIDING DARKNESS, John Anderson has captured the reality of what battle is like—physically and spiritually. This fast-paced, enlightening book is a must-read in these uncertain times."|
OLIVER L. NORTH, Lt. Col., USMC (Ret.), New York Times bestselling author of Mission Compromised, Jericho Sanction, and The Assassins
"You can probably imagine how many scripts and books I've read in the process of being in more than sixty movies. ABIDING DARKNESS is the kind of writing and story that jumps out at me and screams for attention. John Anderson's talent rivals any I've ever seen; he is destined for the bestseller lists."
STEPHEN BALDWIN, actor and author
ABIDING DARKNESS delves into spiritual warfare in a refreshing manner that took me beyond simple enjoyment of a novel and made me ponder and pray. Anderson' skilled pen tells a fantastic story that held me captive from beginning to end. All I can say after discovering this amazing author is, "Write faster, Mr. Anderson. I can't wait to read the next one."
TRACEY BATEMAN, author of the Claire Everett series
"A classic and extremely powerful story about the struggle between good and evil. The characters . . . are sharply drawn."
THE GREENWOOD COMMONWEALTH
"Well-written . . . an intriguing blend of the spiritual and the physical world."
CHRISTIAN BOOK REVIEWS.COM
"Chilling and memorable . . . Recommended to readers who enjoy a good tale of spiritual warfare."
The following was in The Library Review:
"Abiding Darkness may be John Aubrey Anderson's debut novel, but don't let that scare you off. The chilling story is similar to something best selling authors Frank Peretti or Ted Dekker might publish, true, but Anderson clearly, and thankfully, has his very own writing style that will set him apart as an equal peer to the Christian literary trendsetters.
"Great detail, intense scenes, and wonderful characters . . . a genuine page-turner. . . . carefully plotted . . . many unexpected and emotional twists . . . knows how to create suspense and invoke emotion . . . I look forward to the other books to come in his, "The Black and White Chronicles."
