About the Book: A gripping debut thriller pits a man of God against terrorists--and his own deadly past
John Cross is a small-town pastor, bent on leading his flock to follow God's calling. He's not the sort of man one would expect to have a checkered past.
But the truth is that the man behind the pulpit preaching to his sheep was once a wolf--an assassin for the CIA. When John decided to follow Christ, he put that work behind him, determined to do penance for all the lives he took. He vowed never to kill again.
Now someone wants the peaceful pastor to pay for his sins with his own life. And when a terrorist out for revenge walks into the church, John's secrets are laid bare. Confronted with his past, he must face his demons and discover whether a man can truly change. Can he keep his vow--even when the people he loves are in mortal danger? Will his congregation and the brave woman he's learning to care for be caught in the cross fire? In the end, John's life may be the only sacrifice he has left to offer. . .
Andrew Huff's thrilling debut is not only a riveting story of suspense, it's also a deep exploration of the moral quandaries that face those who choose to follow the Prince of Peace in a violent world.
My Thoughts: This book is an attention-getter. It has your attention from the very beginning and draws the reader into the storyline. It is well written and easy to read as the storyline flows along.
The characters are easy to relate to and the reader is pulled into the book and is always waiting for the next bit of action. The reader can see how the characters deal with faith, redemption, and forgiveness. I enjoyed the plot of this story, former CIA agent turned pastor. It shows the love of Christ for us all, and how we can change our ways with the help of Christ. It also gives the reader a glimpse of what is happening in the Middle East. This is a must-read story that I truly enjoyed.
Definitely a novel for those that love action and intrigue
