18701505It isn't often I like a book that is based on a movie. Usually books are so much better than the movie version. And sometimes when an author writes a book from the movie, the book turns out to be not very smooth, not very flowing. But I had the opportunity to read Persecuted, a novel by Robin Parrish based on a soon to be released film from Daniel Lusko; and I had a very different experience.


The plot:
The Question Is Not IF Attempts Will Be Made to Limit Religious Freedoms, But When
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.  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.

From the very beginning of the story I was hooked. The action is fast-paced. The characters are compelling and believable. The plot is very relevant to our culture and our time.

This was a book that I finished in two days. With my busy schedule, that is less and less usual. But I just couldn't put it down. And as I read, I could definitely see it made into a movie, a great action movie.




I can't wait to see the movie, and I can highly recommend this read as a great, fast-paced, thrilling read. I give it 5 stars and PG-13 rating. (The movie is rated PG-13 also, and I feel sure it will be because of violence.)
