Something That Lasts

The Christian Fiction Blog Alliance rolls on this week with Something That Lasts by James David Jordan. Seeing how I am ridiculously behind in my reading I had to skip this one. But it looks interesting. The book’s description certainly grabs your attention:

When Ted Balik rises from his pew to speak, no one in the crowded sanctuary of the O’Fallon Bible Church can imagine that their peaceful community will be shattered by his shocking disclosure: Reverend David Parst, beloved husband and father and pastor, committed the unthinkable crime. He had an affair with Mrs. Balik. As the church members explode into an uproar, Ted silently grabs a gun out of his pocket, raises it to his temple and pulls the trigger. These few moments of horror plunge the reverend, his wife and their twelve-year-old son into a struggle with God and one another that will span generations – a struggle to find something that lasts beyond the rage, lies and fear.

More information can be found at the author’s website.

I work in communications and public affairs. I try to squeeze in as much reading as I can while still spending time with my wife and two kids (and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan Wolverines during football season – oh, and watching golf too).
