Here they were, on the brink of the next era of human history. Prophets had foretold of this time for thousands of years. But of all the things that John could say about their current endeavor and the events that would soon come to pass, nothing came to mind...except fear.
John Williams knows conditions in the United States are getting worse, but when his oldest son, Robert, comes home early from his mission and John receives a special Church calling, suddenly everything comes into perspective—the Second Coming is closer than he ever thought possible.
John travels to the middle of nowhere to build Camp Valiant, a future gathering place for Latter-day Saints, leaving Robert to protect the family from the escalating violence and crime in their town. And as rumors swirl throughout the country that those sworn to protect the United States may, in fact, be the ones tearing it apart, Secretary of State Calvin McCord decides to uncover the truth, no matter the consequences.
Compelling characters and political intrigue allow The Gathering to paint a thrilling yet realistic view of the Second Coming's beginning. As the threads of society begin to unravel around them, the Williams family must find a way to tie their faith together as they prepare for this most glorious event.
