{Book Review & Giveaway} Persecuted by Robin Parrish

About The Book: The Question Is Not IF Attempts Will Be Made to Limit Religious Freedoms, But When

The most popular evangelist of his day, John Luther, simply wants to share the Gospel and enjoy a quiet life with his family. He never asked to be at the center of a political controversy, but an ill wind has been blowing through the halls of Congress, and supporters of a new religious-equality bill see Luther's endorsement as critical. But when Luther refuses to lend his support, he unknowingly sets in motion an explosive plan bent on destroying his reputation and undermining everything for which he stands. His once-normal life is turned upside down as he becomes a fugitive left with only one dangerous option--putting everything he holds most dear at risk while he fights to expose the truth. It is a mission that brings him face-to-face with the coming storm of persecution that could threaten the very fabric of our nation's freedoms.

My thoughts:
I get easily annoyed by politics so I try to stay out of that type of discussion as much as possible. I'm pretty conservative though and grow more so each and every day. I really don't think it talks a poly-sci major to see the way things are moving in our country. Frankly, I find it a bit unnerving at times. 

This is one reason I was intrigued by this book's concept. It poses an interesting scenerio. The government is trying to push through a bill called the Faith and Fairness Act. A bill that would make all religions equal. None would be above the other. It would all be fair. It's a nice concept on the surface, but there is a darker side to all of this and the protoganist, John Luther, finds it all out first hand when his seemingly wonderful life is turned upside down. 

I started this book on a Thursday morning and had it finished by Saturday morning. I would have had it finished sooner, but there was a holiday in between. It was a page turner that had me guessing all the way to the end. It was impossible to predict the ending.

This book was written based on a movie by the same name that is coming out on July 18th. I'll be hoping it comes to a theater near me. I'd love to watch it.

If you like thrillers and, in particular political thrillers, then I think you'd enjoy this book. You can view a sample on the author's website

  1. I recently finished Little Bitty Lies, chic lit fluff sandwhiched betweem Bible Study reads. Currently reading Am I Messing Up My Kids by Lysa TerKeust so far also a good read. If this posted more than once I apologize my phone is acting up

  2. This looks like an interesting read. Thanks for sharing about it. I just finished reading Teaching From Rest and loved the encouragement. I'm ready to find something new to ponder. :)


Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
