The year is 2042. American Christians are decimated, persecuted. Most of them huddled together on a federal reservation, the rest forced to worship in secret underground communities. The State knows all and controls all: what you eat, what you watch, how you think and pray. Tolerance is the highest virtue. Deviance is the norm; speaking out against it is a crime. Any lifestyle choice is fine as long as it doesn t lower your federal Healthcare Score. Too low and the Health Continuity Councils or Death Panels will hold your life in their hands. For powerful, ambitious Senator Axyl Houston, this isn t enough. He wants the Death Panels to have the power to euthanize the genetically weak and imperfect; he wants America to lead the global Unified Order in purging future generations of disease and imperfection. Against him stands David Rudder, an escapee from the Christian reservation called the Cloistered Dominion or Dome who in the simple, merciful act of rescuing a Down s syndrome baby from termination becomes entangled in a chain of events that could lead to a revolution for the Culture of Life. Or to its final destruction. The Death Panels is an exciting and disturbing story of a not-too-distant future in which our current political battles over life and freedom have reached an explosive crossroads, and a clarion call to all Christians and lovers of liberty.

I received this wonderful yet disturbing novel at a writer’s conference, and it was relegated to a pile of books that I wanted to read. When I finally reached this work and started to read it, I devoured it in one day. I was so sorry that this gem had been unopened while I struggled through lesser works. It was a light shining quietly in the fog of struggling talents. Michelle Buckman takes a world of futuristic and terrifying possibilities and draws the reader into a world that seems both plausible and realistic. And the thought of this future world both fascinates and horrifies this reader.
It is a world where Christianity is outlawed and imperfection is decided by the state. Those who are deemed useless and less then perfect are terminated. The citizens of this future world are controlled by the government influenced media, a medical world of twisted morals, and the loss of the true sense of the value of life. What frightened this reader was the path our present seems to be taking to the creation of just such a world. What was considered unthinkable just a generation is true today.
Those who are different by virtue of their belief in the ‘ancient superstition’ called Christianity are collected into a concentration camp. At that camp no medical care, including antibiotics, are supplied. It is during an escape to find needed drugs to treat the sick at the camp that our hero impulsively saves a baby about to be euthanized and sets in motion a series of events that challenge the reigning government and accepted morals of this lost world. As with most transforming events, it is one individual that stirs the hearts and enlightens the souls of those who, entrapped by selfishness, have ignored the sufferings of others. Two thousand years ago a simple babe came to transform our world. In history, it is proven repeatedly that the individual courage and strength of one soul saves the world.
Michelle Buckman spins a tale that is believable and addictive. That is no small task when writing dystopic fiction. I have read many attempts that fall short. It is Buckman’s talent that makes the story flow easily and keeps the reader spellbound. The twists and turns of the plot make this novel exciting and unpredictable.I highly recommend this work. It will challenge your thoughts of the future and open your eyes to the possibilities of the present.

Prophetic! This story depicts a future when tolerance laws protect everyone except Christians, and punishment by government for dissent is swift and severe. Humans are not valued as individuals but only for how they (or their biological parts) might serve the world order. Parents are lied to and pressured to give up their parental rights, submitting their children to government "schools." Babies that are not perfect are destroyed. Parts of the story showing how babies and children are treated (and used) were very emotional for me.

I like that this novel had several interesting plot lines woven together, but I thought there were too many characters. Fewer could have supported the story just as well, in my opinion. I do recommend this novel to adults and mature teenagers.

If you are considering reading this book, be forewarned: It is really hard to read. As in, there are dead kids and babies in this book. Since having children of my own, I can't generally handle that sort of thing and if I had known ahead of time, I probably wouldn't have read this book. But I didn't know and I started reading and by the time the really horrible, depressing stuff came up, I was hooked. Buckman has created a harrowing depiction of our possible future if we continue down the road we're on. Specifically, lack of respect for life and too-powerful governments running our lives and making inhumane bureaucratic decisions in the name of efficiency. The story is well-told and totally gripping so that, as much as I wanted to stop reading, I had to see what would happen. At many points in the story, I told myself, "Oh, that could never happen." Then I saw the news story about the Belgian doctor euthanizing 45-year-old, otherwise healthy twin brothers merely because they were deaf and going blind. (On Dec. 14, 2012.) Guess what? It's happening already. Read "Death Panels" and take a good look at the sorry, demoralized, sick, sick society we still have a chance not to become.

In the tradition of "Brave New World" and "1984," this novel paints a terrifying picture of human society in the not-so-distant future. First written in 1994 and published in 2010, the political climate of the novel shows how eerily accurate novelists can be in writing "it could never happen" stories that ultimately do happen. The prose seems a little last-century to me, with the many alternating points-of-view and super-short scenes, but maybe that's more common to thrillers than I would know (it's not a genre I read much). The idea of Christians segregated in reservations (somewhat like Natives) is so daring, I wanted to see more of what the reservations were like, but this novel focuses on a man who left the presumed safety of his community to rescue doomed babies from the new society. He discovers an underground society of Christians living in the new world, but they cannot defeat the new political order overnight. David Rudder is just one man saving one baby at a time, but add Marcos, Joanne, Jessica, Marty and....you see the power of prayer, love and good versus evil.

I confess to feeling heartless because I didn't cry at scenes where the characters were crying at the horror of humanity; then, to my surprise, a single gesture of one boy passing his hat to another made me choke up. Regardless of your political leanings, the entire novel is worth reading for just that one scene.
