John Luther, popular evangelist, finds himself in the middle of a political firestorm after refusing to endorse a Faith and Fairness bill. His refusal sets into motion a series of events that include murder, investigation by the authorities, betrayal by trusted friends, and danger at every turn. Will John survive long enough to clear his name? Will the freedom of religion the founding fathers intended become freedom from religion?
This book is based on a film of the same name by Daniel Lusko, which I haven’t seen. However, after reading this book, I can’t wait to watch the film. The book is filled with non-stop action and suspense and is a very quick read. I couldn’t put it down! Not only is it filled with action, but I think it is filled with truth. In the introduction, Lusko addresses the insulation present in America today. We are aware of persecution experienced by Christians in other countries, but think, it can not happen here. This book is a realistic look at how quickly that can change.
It is a special book that makes me scour the pages at the back in hopes of finding information when the next book is coming out. This one delivers that hope that the story doesn’t end on page 314, but that there is more to come. I want to find out what happens next to the characters I grew to care about. Parrish wraps everything up in the book, but he makes me think and wonder about what will happen next. I would like to read more!
If you are a fan of political thrillers, this is a great choice. If you are interested in what the future of religious freedom might look like in America, this one will get you thinking. If you enjoy action/suspense, you will like this book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
