This is the second book in a series by James Nicholas Logue about a student that was chosen by God to be the next prophet. It is what you might call a religious tale, but it is in no way preachy. Although the plot is between Good and Satan, the telling has nothing to do with gospel doctrine.

The story starts as a young man, Jeff Fitzpatrick, wins a close contest with two young women. The contest was set up by God to see who will become the next prophet. In the first book, Jeff wins and becomes the chosen one.

In the second book, God, in his wisdom, sees that Jeff needs a support system to help him in his new roll and He gives him the two girls who tie for second place in the contest.

Now the plot of the story is based on the fact that Satan wants to destroy Jeff, and when he discovers them, the two girls helping him. The method he will use is the actions of terrorist groups from anywhere in the world.

The girls, Fatima and Rachel, have special dreams that predict terrorist attacks and earn the CIA’s ear. This organization recruits the two girls as part-time agents, while they continue their education in major universities in their own countries. Jeff, for his part, has powers of his own and has been working with the FBI since the year before.

The three students pool their efforts together and thwart some small attacks by the cartels and a major one that would have killed the three students, who, by now, are in their way.

Like any good spy-secret agent story, 'The Student Prophet' has all the elements to be intriguing and a great story. Nevertheless, I found it a touch slow and the narration too lengthy. It needs a good editing to avoid the many repetitions that slow down the story. It is a clean, good read for teens and others who like FBI, CIA and Interpol stories.
