Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

They have the house, the two kids, and the minivan. They have a well-meaning but shallow church. What Sherry doesn't know is that Doug has a shameful struggle with his thought life. When an exotic dancer's life intersects theirs, this suburban couple has to make a hard choice: do they risk their convenience and security for her sake, or do they cross to the other side of the road? The dark forces will not easily give up their most important pawn. But Ronnie must come out of the darkness, for only she can unravel a plot of devastating destruction.

"Who knew Christian fiction could be so exciting--and so relevant to the times? A fascinating tale of people caught up in temptation, spiritual mediocrity, and high-tech terrorism, "The Lights of Tenth Street" is an edge-of-your-seat spiritual "thriller.""

Bill McCartney

Founder and President, Promise Keepers

"The Light Shines in Darkness..."

At either end of Tenth Street in Atlanta, the welcome lights of two separate establishments beckon passersby--the staid and proper Trinity Chapel and "The Challenger, "a popular gentlemen's club. Within them dwell conflicting sets of values and people who have radically divergent stories and very different lives--"or do they? "

******************

Ronnie Hanover leaves an abusive home situation for her dream of going to college in the city. When she takes a lucrative job waitressing at a strip club on Tenth Street, she finds herself trapped in the life of an exotic dancer--and tangled up in an espionage scheme drawn straight from today's headlines.

At the other end of Tenth Street, Doug and Sherry Turner have the house, the two kids, the minivan, and a respectable church attendance. But Doug also has a serious battle with his thought life that his wife does not begin to comprehend.

When Ronnie's life intersects theirs, Doug and Sherry must decide if they're willing to risk their convenience and security to respond to her cry for help. As angelic forces do battle behind the veil, it's clear that the choice Doug and Sherry make...and how they confront painful issues in their marriage...has the terrifying power to deepen--"or illuminate"--the spiritual darkness.

"From the Trade Paperback edition."
