Item description for Operation: Firebrand-Deliverance (Operation: Firebrand Trilogy #3) by Jefferson Scott...
For some desperate North Koreans, the dream of freedom comes at a steep cost--possible execution or life in a labor camp. Missionaries try to steer the group over the border of Mongolia, but Chinese informers and North Korean agents surround them. When news of the refugees' plight reaches government officials, China paralyzes relief efforts by its resolute inaction. Now, Team Firebrand gets involved to try to deliver the harassed individuals from certain doom. Can the Firebrand members rescue the refugees. . .or will this crucible of danger prove too difficult in a land that God has seemingly forsaken? This may be fiction, but Team Firebrand and its involvement in a sensitive North Korean rescue are as compelling as tonight's news.

Reviews - What do customers think about Operation: Firebrand-Deliverance (Operation: Firebrand Trilogy #3)?
If I could give it ten stars, I would Dec 17, 2007
These are the first Christian fiction books I've ever read, and I must say I'm now completely hooked on Christian speculative fiction. After finishing the first, I bought the next two and read them both in a weekend. I picked up the third book the minute I finished the second. They were unbelievably riveting. The characters were so real that I even dreamt about them! Thanks, Mr. Scott. Now, go write more books, please.
Excellent book based on an unknown real group. Nov 10, 2005
After speaking with Jefferson Scott via email, I must say that these books bring an all new meaning to me. The fact that there is a real group out there doing this sort of thing is great. Overall this book is another pageturner made by a great author. Two thmbs up, and two big toes at that.
Why are these books going out of print?! Jun 24, 2005
It's so sad when good fiction gets burried.
This is an awesome book! Jeff has done a wonderful job of fleshing out his characters and drawing us into their world. It's almost hypnotic. The Korean culture is painted with stunning realism. I actually got chills while reading it. Christians need more daring authors like this.
Thanks Jeff! Keep 'em comming!
Finally, realistic characters and good writing!!! Apr 4, 2005
Anyone who is familiar with Christian fiction knows that trying to find a well written book within the genre is sadly hard to find. Most novels are so sterilized that nothing can growth within them or grow from them. The characters are unrealistic, flat and let's face it boring. I have found myself constantly disappointed after finishing a "good" Christian novel. I kept coming to the sad conclusion that even the bad secular fiction I had read was better than 95% of Christian fiction. As I have grown and matured I had hoped that the genre would do so as well, but unfortunately it has not progressed at all for at least the last ten years.
At the point that I was going to give up on Christian fiction altogether I came across Jefferson Scott's "Firebrand" series. I set myself up for another disappointment, but was pleasantly surprised. His books are filled with realistic, imperfect Christian people trying to live right. The plots are exciting, well-researched and refreshingly real. No whitewashed, over-processed, bland stories here. The books also shine a light on the tragedy in other parts of the world that Americans (particularly Christian Americans) are often not aware of or refuse to acknowledge. With each novel the characters develop and grow and the plot lines get better and more intriguing.
For anyone who is tired of the same old boring Christian books and is ready for something groundbreaking in the Christian genre or if you just want to read an exciting and interesting book, I highly recommend any of the books in the "Firebrand" series, or anything by Jefferson Scott.
***I just found out that Barbour Publishing is putting the series out-of-print, so make sure to buy the books while you can. Also if you enjoy this series write to the publisher and let your voice be heard (email: email@example.com. Snail mail: PO Box 719 / 1810 Barbour Dr. Uhrichsville, OH 44683). If we don't speak up the genre will never change and we will be doomed to marshmallow fiction forever.***
Operation: Fast Read Apr 3, 2005
This book has an original premise and strong, tight writing. As a Christian, I could really relate to the inner struggles of the main character. I would love to see Operation Firebrand made into a movie. It's that kind of story.
Christian men who read fiction don't have a lot of choices that appeal to them but Jefferson Scott is someone I can recommend highly.
If only there was a real Firebrand team. And who knows, maybe there is...
