Revealing May 13, 2008
Had I not recently escaped the jungle of legalistic, religious hypocrisy myself, this book would have thrown me into a rage of jealousy. The writer manages to depict through fiction many very real horrors and idiocies that lurk widespread inside Christian churches today. He also does a remarkable job of demonstrating how marvelous the concept of "the church" can be when one allows the Savior to lead as He originally designed.
Highly recommended for anyone who feels trapped inside legalistic rituals and bondage.

An excellent book with a deep, and meaningful message. The writing style needs a little smoothing out but can be overlooked.
I can recommend this book to all Christians who are meat eaters and not milk drinkers!
A preacher becomes disillusioned with his faith when his prayers aren't answered. He loses everything only to find it again in a greater compacity.
Why doesn't this guy write more? Feb 5, 2008
Incredible book! All of Randall Arthur's books are captivating, moving and extremely relevent: this one; Jordan's Crossing and Betrayal. In an age of Christian fiction that is largely fluff in my opinion, here is a story that deserves six or more stars! Please write another!

This book kept my attention from start to finish. This book truly blessed my life and I wholeheartedly appreciate the author's gift. I lost alot of sleep trying to finish this book. I truly enjoyed it.
A moving, compelling and grasping story ! May 2, 2006
Evidently Randall Arthur writes from experience. Everything is believable because we've all been through similar human and spiritual circumstance. The amazing thing to me was this book was published in 1991 and makes mention of church multiplication by division and small groups, ie a cell based church. I've been immersed in this very Biblical concept and have read many recently published books. It works!
Randall is a gifted writer weaving a tale of personal and spiritual woe and in the end, triumph of GOD. We taarry in HIS vision because HE will not fail in spite of us !!
