Freebie Friday: Jordan’s Crossing by Randall Arthur

jordans crossingThis is my first Friday giveaway.  I have a new extra copy of this book Jordan’s Crossing, and as I start this post… I keep thinking…. pick a different book, pick a different book.  Why?  Randall Arthur’s writing was one I had discovered several years ago.  He has three books out – I read all three one after another and have missed him ever since.  Randall has an amazing way of taking a great christian fiction mystery, roping you in and not letting go to the very end.  Well written and a great message – he is an author that keeps it extrememly real. I was a bit afraid that if anything happened to my treasured copy… what would I do without a spare???  (Is that a bookaholic comment or what?)

Jordan’s Crossing:

When pastor Jordan Rau accepted a position with a European missions agency, his decision was based on money, not on an opportunity to serve God. However, shortly after his family’s arrival in Germany, Jordan’s priorities dramatically change – his young son, Chase, has been murdered. Abandoning his faith in God, Jordan becomes obsessed with finding Chase’s killers and delivering justice. He sets out on a course of action that will destroy not only the murderers, but his own family as well – and only a miracle can stop him.

    Hi Sheila, this is awesome! I have not read anything by this author but it sounds fabulous.

    The best book I have read so far, this was difficult because like you I have read many;) Not including the Bible, that is my all-time fav, I’d have to say it was a book by W. Dale Cramer called, Summer of Light. It touched my heart in so many ways.

    One of the ministries that is near and dear to my heart is prison ministries and while this book was not about people in prison, it touchs on a homeless community and how average people like you and I can make a difference in someones life with a simple gift, the gift of Jesus Christ. So, like those in prison, you can bring people to Christ by first meeting their physical needs, and then introducing them to the Creator.

    Hope your day is fabulous!
