The Devil in Pew Number Seven: A True Story

Rebecca never felt safe as a child. In 1969, her father, Robert Nichols, moved to Sellerstown, North Carolina, to serve as a pastor. There he found a small community eager to welcome him - with one exception. Glaring at him from pew number seven was a man obsessed with controlling the church. Determined to get rid of anyone who stood in his way, he unleashed a plan of terror that was more devastating and violent than the Nichols family could have ever imagined.

Publisher's Summary

Rebecca never felt safe as a child. In 1969, her father, Robert Nichols, moved to Sellerstown, North Carolina, to serve as a pastor. There he found a small community eager to welcome him - with one exception. Glaring at him from pew number seven was a man obsessed with controlling the church. Determined to get rid of anyone who stood in his way, he unleashed a plan of terror that was more devastating and violent than the Nichols family could have ever imagined. Refusing to be driven away by acts of intimidation, Rebecca's father stood his ground until one night when an armed man walked into the familys kitchen...and Rebecca's life was shattered.

If anyone had a reason to harbor hatred and seek personal revenge, it would be Rebecca. Yet The Devil in Pew Number Seven tells a different story. It is the amazing true saga of relentless persecution, one family's faith and courage in the face of it, and a daughter whose parents taught her the power of forgiveness.

    Story
    "Compelling"
    Would you listen to The Devil in Pew Number Seven again? Why?

    Actually yes I would. Not only did it have a great story, but it also taught me alot about forgiveness.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I would have to say it was Becky. She was an absolute rock through everything that she had endured.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Gosh, there were so many. I think it would have to be when Mr. Watts called Becky after his release from prison to ask for forgiveness.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Having trouble forgiving?

    If you could sum up The Devil in Pew Number Seven in three words, what would they be?

    The power of forgiveness...WOW


    Any additional comments?

    I saw this story on the Dr. Phil show and was so impressed by the level of composure and confidence in the guests. I did not realize that the book was not about the killer, but more about the manipulator. This story was truly inspiring. I will not soon forget the lessons taught in The Devil in Pew Number Seven. I have recommended it to everyone I know!

    "Evil in the Sanctuary"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Devil in Pew Number Seven to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    A true story of an evil parishioner that seems hell bent on destroying a church congregation ,it's Godly Leader and young family.
    Reminded the reader that there is literally a constant war going on between good and evil.

    The narrator seem to enjoy the telling of the tale.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    This book is a good incentive to delve deeper into the study of spiritual warfare.

    This book was drawn out and exceedingly dull. There was so much detail that the few moments of interest that did occur were difficult to wait for.
