Lynn asked Jerry B. Jenkins:

I loved your book "The Riven." What motivated this topic? Was it based on someone you had met?

Jerry B. Jenkins The characters do happen to be based on people I know, though neither of them had the same experiences as the people in my novel. The story was based on a couple of juxtaposed ideas that came to me several years apart and stayed with me for almost 2 decades. It happens to be my favorite of everything I've written as well.
