Publisher's Summary

It has been predicted that Christians will one day be hated even in the land of the free. Now that day has arrived with the help of Marsuvees Black.

When a string of racially motivated lynchings threatens to tear the country apart, two stunningly gifted orators, Darcy Lange and Billy Rediger, sweep into Washington and demand that the Constitution be modified to allow for a law that will end the widespread violence. Racial and religious speech that undermines others' beliefs must be classified as hate speech and must be severely punished.

But out of the desert comes one man, Johnny Drake, who refuses to deny his faith in Christ through silence. Now the whole world watches as Christianity faces a showdown not seen since the times of the early church.

Not my favorites

Sinner is the third installment in the Paradise Trilogy, which begins with Showdown and then Saint. Sinner brings back Johnny Drake and reunites him with Darcy and Billy from Showdown. While this book and the series in general has some very good parts, when compared to Adam and Three, they are slow and cumbersome. If you are a Dekker fan read them because they do have some very good messages. If you are just starting with Dekker, I suggest the Circle Trilogy (Black, Red, and White) or THR33, which is absolutely AWESOME.

Great reflection

This book does a great job illustrating our world today and it's views towards Christians, religion, and race. It also shows how we can, allow the darkness to over come us and our actions or we can choose to hold onto the light and shine the light to others.

Disappointed

I have really enjoyed reading and listening to Ted's books. I discovered his books about a year ago. Since, I've read all the books in the Circle and History series and a few others. As a former Protestant and now practicing Catholic Christian, one thing I've appreciated prior to reading this book was that he seemed to avoid including anti-Catholic content. I was disappointed (hence the 3 star rating instead of 5) to find that this book did include such content. I can understand some of the more minor anti-Catholic stuff found in Christian novels written from a Protestant point of view but this book was pretty harsh with regards to it's portrayal of the Catholic Church. I hope this was an isolated case and that his other books stay away from doing this.
