Tested By The Fire Book Review
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not burned….” Isaiah 43:2
This is the second book I read by Pat Patterson. I first read “Paramedics Killers” and now I just finished reading “Tested By Fire”. I am really enjoying the Medic-7 Series so much. “Tested By Fire” written by Pat Patterson provided tremendous amount of action and some romance which things can suddenly change in your life. “Tested By Fire” will keep you going and encourage you to looking forward to read the next books in the Medic-7 Series. My advice to the readers to read this book first then proceeded to the next book in order to understand the Characters and the sacrifices they makes in their jobs as Paramedics. Jim irrational behavior caused gangs to comes after him along the way lost people around him and need to learn the lesson of life, don’t take life for granted. He hasn’t been the same by the reason of, experienced 9/11 first hand. Jim often finds himself depressed, popping pills, or trying to forget the memories by consuming alcohol. Jim’s bitterness risen when his best friend and fellow Paramedic, Sid is brutally killed by J-Rock and his street gang, while trying to preach the gospel on their turf. Jim concentrate on revenge but starts a war. Abruptly Jim’s entire world seems to be crumbling down. Jim stumbles on the brink of completely disaster. Perhaps only the God, Jim yelled at can saves him. Anything is possible.
I would recommend this marvelous book to readers who loves to read a clean action story based on Christian principles. “Tested By Fire” provided an awesome Christian theme in the storyline that’s filled with plenty of actions. I found the Characters are tremendously believable. You can just draw an image in your head to how this can happening in our own residence. I really applaud Pat Patterson for providing Christian beliefs that will minister to readers like myself. I want to personally thank Pat Patterson for allowing God to anointed his hand to take the pen and start scribbled to created a marvelous Christian Book that have the scenery in Medical world of the Paramedics.
