Review: Persecuted by Robin Parrish



About the book:
"The framers of our Constitution meant we were to have freedom of religion, not freedom from religion."--Reverend Billy Graham

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

And When That Day Comes, Will You Stay Silent? 

A storm is coming. 

The most popular evangelist of his day, 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.

But 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.

My thoughts:

Persecuted was a good read. While this type of storyline isn't a favorite of mine, I still thought it was great! I haven't seen the movie from which the book is a novelization, so everything was new to me and I didn't know how things would end.

I liked how Persecuted was not a predictable read. There were a lot of things in the story that were surprising and some things that were so sad!

The characters were nice, although I don't have a favorite. I liked how there were flashbacks of John's past in the book, so you got to see what he went through and how he changed. I do wish there would have been a little more character development just so I could have connected more with them.

All in all, I really liked this book and can't wait to read Robin Parrish's next book.

  1. Dear Melanie,
    The book is a carbon copy of what is happening in the world today. We have the 2nd book in the series in the church library but not this one. Thanks for a wonderful review, I can't wait to read it.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~ Philippians 4:8
