The Devil in Pew Number Seven

The Devil in Pew Number Seven by Rebecca Nichols Alonzo. This one kind of snuck in there, but I am so glad it did!  This book was an amazing testament to the power of forgiveness in the face of overwhelming odds.  I believe that anyone who is having trouble forgiving would greatly benefit from reading the account of the author and the horrendous things that one man did to her childhood and family.  There were times, when reading this book, that I so wanted to put it down and not read anymore!  It seemed as if things could not possibly get worse!  Tears were ready, but by the end of the book they were tears of amazement.  The author did a wonderful job in telling the WHOLE story without sounding as if there were any trace of a grudge being held.  I would readily give this book 5 stars and a round of applause. 

Note: this book was provided to me complimentary by Tyndale House publishers in exchange for my honest review.
