Persecuted Review & Giveaway

About the book

The Question Is Not IF Attempts Will Be Made to Limit Religious Freedoms, But When

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 storm of persecution that could threaten the very fabric of our nation's freedoms.

My thoughts

As you can tell from my many review posts, I love books. I love to read practically any topic because I love learning and I love enjoying a fun and exciting novel.

I thought I would be able to read Persecuted at a nice leisurely pace. However, I was so wrong! As soon as I read the first page, I was hooked. I had to keep reading because I had to know what was going to happen next. There is a lot of unpleasant scenes in the book; however, the author did a great job at explaining what happened without going into tons of details. This was a huge plus for me since I don't like to read really descriptive violent scenes.

The authors also did an excellent job at creating a suspensful book that kept me at the edge of my seat. The book definitely made me think about what if a new religious-equality bill  was proposed and how I would react.Would I remain silent or would I stand up for what I believe in? I will definitely stand up!

I liked how at the end of the book, there is a page of "questions for conversation". The questions help you think more about the premise of the book and about religious freedom and religious equality. If you want a book that you won't be able to set down and a book that makes you really think about religious freedom, then head over here and get it now.
