About the Book

Book: Transhuman – Will We Obey God or Play God?

Author: Rena Groot

Genre: Apocalyptic Fiction

Release date: 2021

This work of apocalyptic fiction is based on reality to come. The lines have been purposely blurred between pure fact and pure fiction. It is a warning based on God’s Word. He has told us a time of unprecedented terror is about to come upon the earth. His wrath will be poured out on sinful and unrepentant humanity in a series of judgements. The intensity and severity of these judgements will be unparalleled in human history. The judgements will be on a global scale that will take place over a seven-year period.

The judgements are reserved for those who have chosen to reject Christ. Even in wrath God is displaying mercy. He wants the lost to be found. All who have rebelled against Him are given a chance to find Him. This is His last and final call to the sons and daughters of Adam. Sadly, many will harden their hearts and turn away from the most beautiful invitation ever to have been extended in all of human history. They will curse God and stay entrenched in their rebellious ways.

God does not hide this awful reality from us. He wants us to be wise and flee from the wrath to come. If we are already His He wants us to warn others—to point them to the narrow path that leads to life. TRANSHUMAN is based on my thoughts of what the world may look like at the halfway point in the Tribulation. The Rapture has already taken place. All who have been invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb are seated. Time will soon be no more. The curtains are opening on the world stage.


The end times are upon us in this gripping, hard hitting story that leaves you crying  out to God. The author explores Tribulation in a realistic, thought provoking journey. Friends turn on friends and danger creeps near as the warnings become fact. Without question this book will have a lasting affect on many. I appreciate the author writing with truth found in the Bible and captures the end times in a commanding way. 

If you haven’t studied Revelations then be prepared for scripture to come to life as the  author leads us through a journey like no other. I liked Josh and how he was willing to sacrifice his life for his wive’s. He is told that “you always have a  choice.” That is very true for each of us. God has given us free will. The choices we make are our own. We must diligently seek Him to make the right choices. Will Josh find a way to free himself from those who hold him captive? 

One important part of the story really grabbed my attention. As Josh nears his time to meet the King, he knows that this man is not to be worshipped or trusted. He thinks about the spiritual leaders who pointed people in the wrong direction. Why did they not teach from the Bible and warn others about the return of Christ? How often have we heard a sermon on Revelations? Going to church doesn’t get you into Heaven, but sadly some people were led astray and found themselves left behind. 

The author does  an amazing job of mixing scriptures into  the story and having it become a time where Revelation is now becoming true. The action is good and I loved following Josh as he tries to  escape from the quest that puts him against transhumans. I got shivers as the plan is laid before Josh. What evil has taken over and why must Josh be used in an experiment that has dire consequences?

This book has kept me up nights long after reading it as I think about the what ifs. The author paints  a picture of what it could be like when we turn away from God and start to follow a false profit. The eerie description of turning  someone into a machine was scary at best. Friend now fighting against friend in a battle where evil is abundant sent shivers down my spine. 

I appreciate how the author ends the story by giving us questions to ponder. What will we choose? God loves us and  “does not want us to be lost.”  Now is the  time to turn from our wicked ways before it is too late. Don’t miss the end of this book where the author has given us scripture to lead us to Christ to be saved. 

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
