27 Hours

27 Hours (What Would You Do If You Faced The End?)

Have you ever felt as though there aren’t enough hours in a day? Don’t have enough time to spend with family and friends? Can’t complete the project for work that your boss wanted yesterday? At some point and time in our lives, we all have felt that if we had more time in a day we could complete the many tasks that we leave undone daily. In this riveting, spell-binding, on the edge of your seat novel 27 Hours, Gerald C. Anderson, Sr., not only gives you a glimpse into the lives of the citizens who only have 27 Hours before destruction and chaos hits earth, he also takes you on a path that has crooks, turns, ups, downs and if you are not careful, it could all lead to a deep and dark place.

The Story

The story unfolds as the President of the United States pens a letter to anyone who might survive the asteroid expected to hit earth and snuff out life as they know it. He begins to spill his feelings of regret, heartbreak and his step-by-step attempt to stop the inevitable….the ASTEROID! How was he going to protect the citizens? Should he tell them? Or should he let them go about their daily lives? This was a question that he struggled with. Here he was the President of the United States, and it seemed as though there was nothing that he could do. So, he does the only thing that feels right to do. He tells them.

As the news began to seep into every television station and every radio station, Bishop Milton Carroll prepared to speak to his congregation. He walked out and placed his papers on the podium and paused for a moment; then he began. At first, everyone agreed with him but suddenly everything went south. It didn’t line up. Christians began to question and doubt everything that they believed in. Lawlessness began to take the shape of parties, drugs, stealing and promiscuity. Some of Bishop Carroll’s members decided to enjoy the rest of their lives by partaking in the “Peachtree Zone” while others decide to stick with what they knew and that was JESUS!


As the plot thickens and the characters begin to submerge themselves into different situations, the story draws the reader into the pages that are quickly turned in order to find out what happens next. It is amazing how the story becomes thought provoking and makes you confront your own understanding of the end of times. Will it be wrapped in a pretty bow? Handed to you on a platter? Or will you only have 27 Hours to figure out whom you will serve?
