About Michelle Warren

Michelle lives in New Zealand. She is a mother, a writer, and a doctor. She enjoys debating, and will quite happily explore religion, agnosticism, atheism and the Theory of Evolution with anyone who’s keen. Raised Anglican, baptized in the Pentecostal church, trained in science, having wrestled with life and death, Christianity, the Church, and God, Michelle has poured the heart of her discoveries into her writing, creating a fictional representation of Jesus and the early church in order to try to unveil and translate Christianity into our setting today. Through this new genre, which is essentially the parable, she has sought to express something of the deepest of our human realities today: our struggles, our flaws, and a potential journey into realizing our full potential.

About the Series: A New Kind of Zeal trilogy
He wanted peace. He found a life-changing adventure…

Tristan Blake’s time in the army left him scarred and broken. Now that he’s home from war, the atheist bishop’s son wants nothing more than the peace and quiet of the New Zealand coast. When a Maori priest named Rau offers him a lift, neither of them expect a ride that could change their lives forever.

On a beach up north, a mysterious man scores Rau a colossal snapper with no bait. As Joshua joins the atheist and the priest on their journey to the heart of the nation, Tristan is surprised by his provocative friendship. As word of the jean-sporting guru spreads, the prime minister and Tristan’s father take notice…

Tristan is left with a choice: follow a man who demands love that could transform his life, or thwart Joshua’s influence by doing the unthinkable…

A New Kind of Zeal is a spiritual and psychological suspense novel for people of all walks of life. If you enjoy compelling characters, a new take on ancient teachings, and stories with a New Zealand flair, then you’ll love Michelle Warren’s book of faith under fire.

I enjoyed this book and was glad to have received a copy of it. The story is a fictitious re-iteration of the time of Christ and the Gospel story, but set in modern day New Zealand.
Tristran has been hardened by the army and by his father who is the Anglican Arch Bishop, living a hypocritical life.
Global warming is causing droughts, food shortages and an unstable world, possibly on the brink of WWlll which Tristran has had a first hand taste of while serving overseas.
He has come home with plenty of hate and hurt to a place he barely recognises and a family that has pretty much disintegrated, yet while he is hitchhiking north he is picked up by another man of God who ultimately introduces him to Joshua, a type of Jesus.
Tristran's journey takes a few unexpected turns which leads him to a decision he wished he could back out of, but his hand is forced. What happens after his terrible decision causes the country to plummet into further chaos and turmoil.
I heard the audiobook version of this and the narrator did a fine job of it, the pace was good, the character and story development easy to follow and in general, a thoroughly enjoyable read.
