The Devil In Pew Number SevenThe Devil In Pew Number Seven by Rebecca Nichols Alonzo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Kara Hunt recommended this book to me, and I’m so glad she did. On the face of it, it’s a book about a series of tragic events that befall a pastor and his family. But at its heart, it’s a book about forgiveness.

This is not a comfortable read. It’s a true story of a family persecuted for years by a demented man … in their church. What this writer went through, as a very young child, is unthinkable. I had a hard time wrapping my mind around it. Thankfully. But it happened.

What makes this book special is how the family understood their role in God’s plan, and how they lived out their faith. Not only in the past, but even today. The ending surprised me, I didn’t see that coming. And that – always – makes a good story!

Highly recommended reading.
