Although the world is abandoned, he must survive, which he discovers is initially easy when everything is yours for the taking. And, your choice of shelter becomes the pick of all the marvelous architecture ever built. Yet, of all the places, in which he could choose to live, Dan chooses a newly constructed water tower, primarily because of its ease of defense. With the possibility of the human race becoming extinct he begins searching for a female to become his ‘Eve.’ Dan’s good fortune brings him into contact with Willy, a seventeen year old girl who is also searching for other survivors. Dan will become her ‘Adam.’In the second book of the series, The Event- Down From the Tower, other survivors begin to trickle in. Remarkably, small communities begin forming. They deal with the challenges of “beginning again” within the limits of a greatly reduced population, as well a physical issue which renders most of the surviving females infertile.In this third book of the series, The Event--A Matter of Faith, the impact of religion on the fragile survivors of the apocalyptic event, which they have named ‘The Event’ is addressed. As they work to survive, they also search for an explanation of just what it is that has happened to them. What is it that caused almost everybody on earth to morph into a rusty pile of residue? When some of the survivors determine human reason simply is not enough, when it falls short, that’s the point where some of the survivors turn to God, who provides the only explanation.However, we find in The Event--A Matter of Faith that man’s understanding of God is as varied as the person searching for him. To some he is a deliverer and a giver of hope. To others he is a judge who has condemned the world to perish, except for God’s selected true remnant. And, to some God is non-existent, a farce, a crutch for the weak, and a joke. In a world where society has vanished, we find faith in God has not. However, it’s the nature of that faith which becomes the setting of The Event--A Matter of Faith.
