"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.… (més)

Ressenya escrita per a Crítics Matiners de LibraryThing .
I really enjoyed the book but the ending was not satisfying for me. Really wanted to see justice all the way to the top. But it was an eye-opener concerning persecution of Christians in the US. It does not necessarily come in the form we see overseas. And that is a good thing to remember. ( )

I found the plot devices to be a bit implausible and stretched believability. But the message of persecution is on point, especially in light of current events. ( )

I picked up this book based on the cover alone (I'm participating in a book challenge and one of the categories was to read a book based on the cover alone). I was intrigued about one person against the government and the words "I Will Not Be Silent". I enjoyed the fast-pace tempo of the book but I also liked the background development of the main character. That being said I had some issues with the book.

John Luther is a man of faith, a TV evangelist to be precise. Who's had support from politicians. Now as you can guess there's some legislation in the works and those politicians who have supported John wants a favor - endorse the legislation on his TV show. As you can imagine the politicians aren't terribly happy with John not being on board. My biggest issue with this book is that 1) it's a surprise to John that the politician's are unhappy with him and 2) that he's in television ministry when all he wants to do is to lead others to Christ, but still take money from all those "devoted" followers. In the end I didn't feel as if John really learned anything but that he too could be "political" and that not being silent was a political move rather than a religious move. ( )
