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 Thoughts

This has been a very interesting book to read.  It makes you stop and think about what is going on in the word around us today.  I had many times when reading this book that I had to stop and ask myself, What would I do?  Would I stand up for what I believe in or would I just say whatever and let the world crumble before my feet?  So may times we see things happening and we don't say a word.  We just go on and think to ourselves that someone else will take care of it, or someone else will protest this.

I am reminded of the prayer in school, I have heard my very own pastor say that he did nothing about it because he believed that someone else would do something and that they would never take prayer out of school.  It was a big surprise to him when they did.  The sad thing is, how many people sat back and had the very same thought?  This book talks basically about that very thing.  Will you when the time comes, stand up for what you believe in or will you sit back and let someone else fight the battle for you?  Will you be PERSECUTED for your beliefs?  It is a hard thought to process and I don't really expect an answer to this question.  But I would love for you to stop and think about it.

Now I have a book to giveaway to one lucky reader! Just follow the Rafflecopter, and you are entered to win!  Good Luck to you all...
