PERSECUTED ~ Book Review & Giveaway

UPDATE:  The winner of the book is Sam.  Congratulations, Sam!  I'll make the necessary arrangements to get your book out to you.  Thank you!

I recently finished reading the book, PERSECUTED.  Wow!  Did I love this book?!

This is one of those books that you just don't want to put down!  It is based on the Daniel Lusko film by the same name that is being released in theaters on Friday, July 18.

Some information about the book and author ..

About The Book:
The Question Is Not IF Attempts Will Be Made to Limit Religious Freedoms, But When
And When That Day Comes, Will You Stay Silent?

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.

About The Author:
Robin Parrish is a journalist who's written about the intersection of faith and pop culture for more than a decade. He's also the author of Offworld and The Dominion Trilogy . Robin and his wife and children live in North Carolina. Visit Robin's website...www.robinparrish.com

Be sure to check out PERSECUTED the movie at a theater near you, July 18th!
Visit the official movie website: http://www.persecutedmovie.com

When I think about persecution, I think about other parts of the world.  Not here.  Not in the United States.  But persecution has many forms.  We are seeing it more and more, whether we like to admit it or not.  This book brings to light some forms of persecution right here in our nation.

Despite the heavy subject material this book is very easy to read.  And, as I said, hard to put down.  I highly recommend it!  And if you're not much of a reader (or even if you are), go see the movie!

Here's the fun part ... I get to give a copy of the book PERSECUTED away to one of my lucky readers!  Just comment on this post and let me know what the last movie was that you saw in the theaters.  Easy peasy!  Hmmm, thinking about what we last saw ... I think it was Monsters University.  It has been a while since we have been to the theater.  :)

Last day to comment is Thursday, July 24.  A winner will be chosen randomly and posted at the top of this post on Friday, July 25.  I will also email the winner if there is an email attached to their profile.  Or you can always leave it in the comments.  I promise no SPAM from me!  I don't have time for that!  :)

Finally, the fine print ...

Hi Kim, Looking forward to our get together for graphic design. Boy the last time I went to the theater is a tough one. We don't go very often . . . the last movie I saw was Monumental by Kurt Cameron. It was very good and I would recommend it to all. Thanks for asking Kim!
