Item description for The Debt: The Story of a Past Redeemed (Women of Faith Fiction) by Angela Hunt...
Overview Having nearly forgotten her troubled early years in the wake of a successful twenty-five-year marriage and her husband's renowned ministry, Emma Howard finds herself confronting the past and reevaluating her faith when the child she gave up for adoption reappears in her life. Original.
After fleeing a painful and compromising past, Emma Rose Howard settled eagerly into the role of a pastor's wife. She and her husband, Abel, dedicated themselves to parenting a mega-church and influenced thousands of lives through its related ministries.
But when Emma Rose receives a phone call from a living, breathing remnant of her troubled past, she finds herself wondering if something in her life is woefully out of balance. The presence of this unexpected intruder soon threatens everything Emma Rose has believed about her calling, her marriage, and her relationship with God.
"The Debt" not only invites readers to embrace the painful heartache and incomparable joy that accompany a soul's redemption, but it challenges us to follow Christ to new and unexpected places.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Debt: The Story of a Past Redeemed?
a non stop read... Mar 24, 2007
I couldn't put this book down until I was through. It is an eye opener as far as what the church shoud be doing for the Lord.
Excellent Jan 4, 2006
The first book I read by Angela Hunt, and still my favorite. She makes one really think about what Christianity means in the life we live. Well written and enjoyable.
It's not sappy. Oct 8, 2005
I don't like sappy books, but since this was written by Angela Hunt, I thought I'd give it a whirl. I was not disappointed. Ms. Hunt can write about anything, and I'd read it. She's a wonderful story-teller, and her tales touch the heart without being overly sentimental. One of my favourite authors.
Amazing, powerful, should be required reading for all Christians Sep 20, 2005
This book belongs in every church library and as a part of every church book club. The issues raised between being a Christian and being a follower of Christ are powerful. Hunt does a wonderful job of capturing the quest of perfection that so many Christians are on, only to forget that we are sinners too, and to be surprised by the sin we find in the world. Emma is a true 3-dimensional character who I would love to know in real life, and I will miss her now that the book is done. It's a great inside look at the life of a televangelist and the missteps even they take on the way. But most of all, this is a powerfully moving story of a mother, her son, and what they teach each other about faith and the Lord.
It changed my perception on christianity Aug 5, 2005
I have never read a book by angela hunt but I saw it on my mom's shelf and thought "eh this should be a quick easy read that will amuse me at least a little" boy was I wrong
While it is a very easy read, and it is typical christian generic drama, I enjoyed the contrast of the main characters life and her son.
It was that dichotomy of christianity that really got me thinking about my own 17 year walk with the Lord. It's not so much the THOU SHALT NOTS, but what are you really doing for God. Needless to say because of this book me and a few other friends now hold each other accountable to befriend the untouchables, hurt, and slums of life... and all because of this little novel.
