“The knot on the back of my pounding head,
and the bloodstains on the throw pillow
served as my first clues that someone
had knocked me unconscious….”
Veteran pastor William J. Watson thought he’d experienced problems of the worst kind. A trio of power-hungry leaders had made his life miserable, but his continual dealings with the underbelly of church life had caused his deepest scars.
But when he is mysteriously held hostage by an obviously deranged captor, Pastor Watson must fight for his life. Will the long days and nights of his forced retreat cause him to descend even deeper into a dark hole of cynicism? Will he be consumed by the desire for revenge and stoop to the same level of evil as his perpetrator? Or might he find the power and inner strength to forgive?
A stunning, spine-chilling journey
through one man’s attempts to be freed from all that held him hostage
“A story about psychosis and the Spirit which will tie you into such a dark tale that you will pray to be released from its narrative spell. But you will not be set free until the final paragraphs have sped you through the agony and ecstasy of crime and forgiveness.”
Calvin Miller, longtime pastor, seminary professor, and best-selling writer of more than 40 books, including The Singer, The Song, The Finale, and Letters to Heaven
