Publisher's Summary

"Close your eyes, Ela of Parne. Close your eyes and you will see." Ela Roeh of Parne doesn't understand why her beloved Creator, the Infinite, wants her to become His prophet. She’s undignified, bad tempered, and only 17 - not to mention that no prophet of Parne has ever been a girl. Worst of all, as the elders often warn, if she agrees to become the Infinite's prophet, Ela knows she will die young. "Istgard has turned their back on Me. See the evil they do." Yet after experiencing His presence, she can't imagine living without Him. Determined to follow the Infinite's voice, Ela accepts the sacred vinewood branch and is sent to bring the Infinite’s word to a nation torn apart by war. Here she meets Kien, a young Traceland ambassador determined to bring his own justice for his oppressed people. As they form an unlikely partnership, Ela must surrender to her destiny... and determine how to balance the leading of her heart with the leading of the Infinite. "Will you accept the branch and speak My will? Will you be My prophet?"

Prophet (R. J. Larson)

This was an excellent read! Written as if it were talking about something happening today without any religious stigmas. I enjoyed it very much.

I thought the reader did a good job!

What did you love best about Prophet?

Explores what it would be like to represent God ("The Infinite") at a level where you were given glimpses of the immediate future in order to represent God in a time of judgment and change.

What other book might you compare Prophet to and why?

The Exodus in the Bible where God speaks to Moses, along with the prophetess Huldah, a bit of Deborah, and a bit of Isaiah thrown in just for good measure.

But, throw into the mix just a little bit of normal teenage girl who has human emotions and feelings, humor, and depression. A bit like Katness from the Hunger Games.

What does Brooke Heldman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Here's the rub. She expresses A LOT of emotion! If you don't like this, you will be put off a bit. But I certainly felt that her exclamations of emotion generally fit the character well. She was passionate for the reading! Bravo! My children also really like her voice. We all think she struggles a bit with some of the darker male characters (though we think she does well with the lighter ones).

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It reminded me that God is interested in the course of history and he does see all. I am not one to cry, but I did empathize very much and cared about the characters.

Any additional comments?

I wanted to dispel some of the negative reviews. I and my children have enjoyed this book and will go on in the series.

Awful narration

I'm sorry, I really wanted to listen to this story,it's. Hard to find good stories about God. But I just couldn't get past the narrator. I constantly had to adjust the volume, one minute I could barely hear her, the next she was shouting. And the expression she put into the story was so over the top I kept getting pulled out of it.
