Book Review~The Devil in Pew Number Seven

The Devil in Pew Number Seven 
Rebecca Nichols Alonzo (Author), Bob DeMoss (Contributor)
Published by Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.

This is a book on the trials a family endured while pastoring.  It is a shocking and gripping story of the depravity of man and an amazing story of forgiveness.  It is a gripping story.  I started it and could not put the book down.  

The story starts with a couples love story and their deep abiding desire to serve the Lord.  But takes a twist down a very dark path as they run into opposition from one man in the church.  It was shocking to read how deep this hatred for them was in this person.  The story is very easy to read and just pulls you into this families lives.  Be sure to have the time to read it all as once you start you will not be able to put it down.

The story also shows how we must forgive.  I reread the chapter on the how and whys of forgiveness.  It was so well laid out and such a blessing to me.

I highly recommend this book!!

I just wanted to thank you for taking up for Lucinda. She really did not deserve those hateful words from Jeri Fletcher. Jeri wants to quibble about what is in the subject line. But what she can't deny is the fact that she did say the following:

Did Hep House teach the proverbs?

"A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished." Prov 27:12"

Thank you for the review.
I have not decided whether to read it or not. I guess the title throws me off.
