I have been at it again reviewing another great book from Tyndale. Read all the way to the bottom of this post for your chance to win a copy of you very own. 

Boone Drake is a Chicago cop, a family man and a lifelong Christian. Life seems to be on a blessed track until an unexpected tragedy takes most of that life away. Boone’s personal journey back to God and the development of his career in the Chicago PD make up this engaging story.

This book had me hooked from the first chapter. The story of an officer whose goal is to take on organized crime and the street gangs makes for an interesting read.  The addition of the officer’s spiritual journey made for a fascinating read. I didn’t make it through this one without a lot of tears shed, but it was well worth the read and I would recommend it highly to anyone. Jerry Jenkins never disappoints!

In Boone’s personal journey, his inner searching eventually leads to his being able to witness to a new Christian – one of the biggest, baddest gang leaders in the city. His personal courage in that instance was an inspiration to me and brought home once again the fact that as Christians, that is our calling on this earth: to witness to the lost, no matter who they are, what they look like, how we feel about them or how hopeless it looks.

Jerry B. Jenkins was co-author of the now-famous Left Behind series and Left Behind for Kids. He also authored the amazing story of a prison chaplain and the prisoners he served, one in particular. It is called Riven and after you read it you will have a new appreciation for your Christian faith. He has written many other books and you can see a list here: and here
