About The Book:
The Question Is Not IF Attempts Will Be Made to Limit Religious Freedoms, But When
 
The most popular evangelist of his day, John Luther, simply wants to share the Gospel and enjoy a quiet life with his family. He never asked to be at the center of a political controversy, but an ill wind has been blowing through the halls of Congress, and supporters of a new religious-equality bill see Luther's endorsement as critical. But when Luther refuses to lend his support, he unknowingly sets in motion an explosive plan bent on destroying his reputation and undermining everything for which he stands. His once-normal life is turned upside down as he becomes a fugitive left with only one dangerous option--putting everything he holds most dear at risk while he fights to expose the truth. It is a mission that brings him face-to-face with the coming storm of persecution that could threaten the very fabric of our nation's freedoms.

My Review:
I absolutely love reading suspenseful books!  They draw me in and I don't want to stop reading until I know how it ends.  I'm pretty sure I had Persecuted done within 24 hours, or less, of starting it and I can't say that of most books I've read.  It's a real page-turner!

Not only is the storyline gripping, but I enjoyed how John Luther's past was revealed, as well as the past of the other characters, a little at a time, throughout the book.  On top of that, I liked how the chapters were quite short, so I could just pick up and read for 5-10 minutes and then go about doing household chores.

After reading Persecuted, I am very excited to see the movie!  Unfortunately, it isn't in my area, but I know I will be buying a copy when it is out on DVD.  I highly recommend picking up a copy of Persecuted and/or seeing the movie yourself!  You will not be disappointed!!

The movie will be out this Friday, July 18th!  Stop by the website and see if it's in a theater near you!

Buy It!
Persecuted, in paperback, can be purchased for $15.99.  It is also available as a hardcover and e-book.  All can be found through the persecutedmovie.com site.
