Item description for The Tattooed Rats (Renegade Spirit Series #1) by Jerry B. Jenkins & John Perrodin...

When the World Peace Alliance, the new world government, declares Christianity a crime punishable by death, high-schooler Patch must make a tough decision--give up his life for his cause, or renouce his faith and lose his soul.

Publishers Description
Christianity is outlawed. Sharing faith is considered hate speech. Worship is done in secret underground settings. Patch, a high school student, has to form his own beliefs, and try not to get killed along the way. He meets characters such as the Wharf Rats, a gang covered in tattoos, who turn out to be believers. Schoolmates betray. True friends are hard to find. Spiritual forces intervene causing havoc and deception. Through it all, can Patch's faith prevail?

From Publishers Weekly
The premise of Jenkins's latest collaboration, the first in the Renegade Spirits series, is an attention-grabber: a Christian teenager fights for his life and his faith in a world where Christianity has been outlawed and believers are hunted down and punished (or worse). But the execution of this idea makes for a challenging read. A story that seems too futuristic for its setting (the year 2012), an unwieldy cast of characters, and brief, sound-bite-like text passages that jump from character to character are a few of the elements that disrupt the book's narrative flow. While the suspenseful action/adventure tone and soul-searching themes of conformity and tolerance are surefire draws for teens, the target audience may not stick with this volume long enough to get the full message. Ages 12-up. (Oct.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Tattooed Rats (Renegade Spirit Series #1)?

A MUST READ!!!!!!!!  Aug 14, 2008
Wow! This is a book hard to put down. It is about a boy named Patch who lives in a world where being a Christian or questioning the non-Christian world about the Christain beliefs is illegal. Patch is in hiding from the head macho Ms. McCry, who wants to bring an end to the Christians. There is also some battles of demons and angles. We can thank God that our world has not come to this. A book for any teen or adult. Read it, you'll be thankful you did.
Amazing Books  Jun 29, 2008
I had the hardest time putting this book down! I ordered them to read on a trip, and I hatted the fact that I was almost through with them. I wish there were more books like these! The authors did a great job of describing the characters well. The people are easy to relate to. The books do an excellent job of keeping the readers entertained, but also give advice for every day problems. I highly recommend these books! They are great for teens of any age =).
So, so good!  Jan 15, 2007
Once I started reading this book, I had a hard time putting it down! This story chronicles a world where it's illegal for Christians to speak up about their faith. It follow's a boy named Patch as he denies what is to be "the norm" and ends up in a mental facility. But something happens--while in the mental facility, he starts to tell others about God. And the remarkable thing is, it sparks interest and questions. Of course, I am not going to chronicle the entire book, but I will tell you that it's something that you won't want to put down once you start reading it! I suggest reading this book and then passing it one to someone who might not be saved. Or even to someone who is---and be thankful that it's not illegal for us to show our faith!
