Wow. I’m still a bit winded and out of breath as I close the cover on this political thriller.
I agreed to read the book Persecuted by Robin Parrish (Based on a Daniel Lusko Film) because, simply, it sparked my interest. This week I was asked not to use the word Prayer because it was offending people. On Facebook, during meetings, at work – we are asked not to speak about God, Truth, Bible, and Prayer. Now, even the encouraging phrase, “I’m praying for you.” has been requested to be banned from a woman’s gathering. Where is this all headed? Tolerance has crossed over to being intolerant.
I think I assumed that this book was a narrative or documentary about Religious Liberty in America. No – It is a full blown thriller, edge of your seat, stay up late, bring it places in your purse, type of fiction story.
Fiction . . . . Maybe. The entire story of course is still a story – but what was played out– is happening today. You’ll stop and pause and think. You’ll question what you’d do in these situations. You’ll look towards real life characters in this day and age that would plug into the characters in the book. Fiction and non fiction will blur.
And it is a thriller. Twists and turns. Even up to the last page, do not set your mind on where the path of the story will lead.

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. 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
