A good book. Mar 12, 2007
This is another great book byRobert Whitlow. It is well laid out with a real life feel.
Amateurish Grisham/Peretti imitation Nov 3, 2006
Many people have described Whitlow's style as John Grisham meets Frank Peretti. Unfortunately, Whitlow can't decide which one he wants to be, and the product is a plot that lurches from one genre to another.
Initially, I was enthralled with the mystery and eerie secrecy surrounding the "List". About 1/4 of the way into the story however, Whitlow completely shelves all the intrigue and the plot grinds to a halt as the book morphs into a romance novel.
In the last part of the book, the mystery resurfaces suddenly along with the introduction of a Peretti-like spiritual warfare theme that is never fully developed. All the conflicts are quickly resolved with little imagination, and the good guys live happily ever after.
Whitlow's intentions seem good, but his presentation of salvation is as muddled as the plot. At Renny's "conversion" there is essentially nothing about Christ's blood, repentance, or turning from sin. Instead he merely prays "I believe. I receive"; typical of the pablum that passes for the "gospel" nowadays in the Rick-Warrenized American Church of Osteen.
I'd give "The List" one star, but Whitlow earns an extra star for at least trying to craft a novel that's distinctly Christian, and for coming up with an interesting premise.
Can't Wait! Jul 2, 2006
I have read this book more than once and it is rated at the top of my favorites. The movie is coming out early in 2007. The web site is thelist-themovie.com. A powerful story being told on the screen is something to look forward to!
Belongs on *my list* of favorites May 2, 2006
During the Civil War, a group of men formed a pact to protect their money. Outside in the wind and rain, a prophet spoke a curse against the pact.
The evil spiritual power of this pact draws in a modern heir to the list, even as he learns about this form of spiritual power, an opposing power he was not aware existed.
He is influenced, too, by his past relationship with his harsh father and his new relationship with an attractive woman--both on the list.
Recently, packing for vacation in North Carolina, I chose this book which had sat on my TBR shelf for several months, because the story takes place in nearby South Carolina. I hoped the story would hold my interest against the backdrop of airports between here and NC. It did.
From the airport in Charlotte we drove and visited old friends and former neighbors, searched for and found a grave of my husband's ancestor, and attended Merlefest Bluegrass festival in Wilkesboro.
I was amused to read about the main character traveling from South Carolina to Charlotte, North Carolina, along the same highways we had just traveled for the first time. I see coincidences as God's little smiles. And I loved _The List_. It's not a light story that just entertains and skims the spiritual surface--and there's a definite place for those.
It has history, intrigue, romance and danger, and it demonstrates the power of prayer.
And the often avoided reality of spiritual warfare.
And the need and power of fellowship and prayer support.
It's one to place on my shelf beside Frank Peretti, _Lost Shepherd_ by Agnes Sanford and _Blessed Child_ by Ted Dekker, to entertain, challenge and plunge the reader into the depths of the Spirit.
And I've just learned it will soon be a movie. Finished March 5, it was shot in Wilmington and includes a day along The Battery in Charleston, which I love.

Exciting suspenseful thriller for Christians Apr 14, 2006
The List by Robert Whitlow is a fabulously plotted book. Renny Jacobson is stunned after his father's death to discover that he inherits nothing but a letter, an old trunk, and membership in The List. It's hard to say much more about the plot without giving away the mysteries within. Whitlow does a wonderful job of only giving out so much information at a time. This is definitely a book that will keep you up at night until you finish it. Sometimes Jo and others in the book come across as proselytizing, but Renny's walk toward faith in Christ is just as compelling as the fast-paced plot. This is a great suspenseful thriller whether you are a believer or not. Impossible to put down.
