Publisher's Summary

Imagine a man who is a cross between a typical Southern Baptist minister and a typical Louis L'amour hero, and you'll probably arrive at a fair approximation of Eli Helmsman, the protagonist in this gritty, theologically infused western. Eli never went looking for violence - but he was bold to speak the truth as he saw it. Sometimes, violent men went looking for him...and more often than not, they ended up in boot hill.

did Louis L'Amour write this?

great story, like Louis L'Amour or Zane Grey but with a Christian twist, read by the author who has a excellent baritone voice, I would listen to him read other books as well. spoiler alert, I teared up at the end and cowboys don't cry.

Worth a listen

+The author did a decent job on the character voices.
+The story is fairly original, and the concept was refreshingly non cliched.
+The ending wasn't predictable. I wish I could mention more but it would spoil it if I mentioned anything more.

Entertaining listen and well narrated

Entertaining and engaging listen. Ties in a biblical narrative very well with a western theme. I would say it definitely does not come off as 'preachy' at all, doesn't try to be too profound, and is more of light hearted classic western story with a classic western 'good guy' hero.

As I said it's light hearted and entertaining. Don't come expecting rich character development where our hero overcomes hardship, struggles to achieve goals, and fights inner demons. Its more of a "our hero tries to offer redemption to his enemies and failing that blows the bad guys away with a giant handgun".

Narrator did a good job of voicing the character's.

I would definitely purchase another title from this author in future.
