THE PRIEST'S GRAVEYARD


NAME: THE PRIEST'S GRAVEYARD

AUTHOR: TED DEKKER

Two abandoned souls are on the hunt for one powerful man. Soon, their paths will cross and lead to one twisted fate bound by a perilous love. Danny Hansen is a Bosnian immigrant who came to America with hopes of escaping haunted memories of a tragic war that took his other's life. Now he's a priest incensed by the powerful among us who manipulate the law for their own gain, uncaring of the shattered lives they leave behind. It is his duty to show them the error of their ways, even if he must put them in the grave. Renee Gilmore is the frail and helpless victim of one such powerful man. Having escaped his clutches, she now lives only to satisfy justice by destroying him, regardless of whom she must become in that pursuit. But when Danny and Renee's paths become inexorably entangled things go very, very badly and neither of them may make it out of this hunt alive.

~ The end of this book made the wait worth it. At some point I was getting really annoyed cos it's like page 250 and I still didn't know where it was going. I resisted the temptation to flip to the end and just get it over with, lol. 

My theory for reading any Ted Dekker book is, Patience and you have to know to understand. If you don't have an understanding of God's Grace, this author's book may just be a good thriller to you.

I liked Renee and how her character portrays how frail we are as human beings, I saw Danny as Jesus and though he needed change in himself he understood the love of God. It was simply a comparison between 'the law' and 'Grace'.

Spoiler: It was a bit too violent for my taste though. Them just the kill people anyhow.... ha

LOVE AND GRACE HAD FOUND US FINALLY ~ pg 355

Just another good book I read this year.

FIND REST IN LOVE



John 17:3,17
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 
Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
(see John 1) 

Ephesians 2:4
But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us

1 John 4:8-10
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love
 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 
(see Isaiah 40:1-2)


God loves me ____________ (insert your name)... Everything is Alright. Say this phrase over and over to yourself and see the wonder of it. I tell you, it cleanses the mind, and brings you to the place of peace that passes understanding. Its sure to give you rest! (Tested and proven).



Enjoy a great week and November ahead.
