"Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples," Jesus said (John 13:35, NLT). Why then are Christians noted for their hateful judgment of each other?

I picked this book because the cover looked (and the title sounded) like a cop novel. Which I am all about. If I had taken the time to read the back cover I would have put it back on the shelf and moved on. I rarely read 'religious' fiction. I'm glad I didn't in this case! I really enjoyed this book. It was a bit preachy, but it used a families tragic story to show how churches and pastors can religiously abuse their members. Fear of and actual harsh treatment, lack of care or empathy and shunni ...more

This is not your typical Christian fiction read. This was an amazingly honest at a toxic church situation. This book gives readers a look from the inside of a toxic church and how it operates; how people are wounded and how people start to believe lies about themselves and others. Some of these lies turn people to the dark side. Instead of to Jesus the light. It’s a page turner from the start. Some parts of this book ripped my heart out and was difficult to read because of all the pain people in ...more

For some reason, this book has stuck with me over the years. It may be that the storyline is so realistic and disturbing. It may be that I have many friends that are missionaries. It may be that we can say "that could never happen to me" or "I would never do that" - yet there is no guarantee that I (or someone around me) will yield to temptation in such a way.

I thought this book was a great idea...poorly told. The writing was so bad I could not believe a major book company published it. The characters were very one-dimensional and the conversation was very very werid and unrealistic. The story idea was great. I think this book should have had some major help before being published.

This book caused me to hurt for the characters. The writer is able to touch you and let you feel the hurt, confusion, and hopelessness and then lift them out of their despair by the wise counsel of Jason.

Recommend this book.

A wonderful book meant to stir thoughts about how Christians should treat their "brothers" in the Lord. How they should treat people...PERIOD!

Jason Faircloth is at it again- bringing in the lost sheep!

This book was so slow paced and the writing so basic I just couldn't waste anymore time with it. I got about half way through and called it good.

This book grabbed me and I read about 100 pages per night until the last 100 pages. I was a little disappointed with the ending.
