Fear Has A Name - A Review

A Review

A well-written story that centers on the life and family of Jack Crittendon, a reporter for the Trenton City Dispatch.  The man who has chosen to stalk his wife, Pamela, and the missing pastor of a near by church provide the focus of the story.  The lives of three men, Jack, the stalker, and the pastor, are drawn together - forcing each of them to see God in new and unexpected ways.  Even when life seems to be falling apart, God is at work.

Though I  enjoyed the story, I was a bit dismayed by the level of violence and evil of the various characters described throughout the book.  I suspect that if this were a movie, the film would require at least a PG-13 rating, or perhaps an R rating.

With the exception of this single cautionary note, the book is a keen look at God at work in the lives of people from very different places in their lives.  I give it a strong recommendation.

This review is based on a free electronic copy of this book provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are mine alone.
