Filled with insightand with characters so real youll never forget themDominion is a dramatic story of spiritual searching, racial reconciliation, and hope.
I dont know when I have read a novel that affected me so profoundly. Randy Alcorn has combined a superb mystery/detective story with a lesson in racial relations in America, gang dynamics and symbols, Christian values, and spiritual warfare.
Even better than its predecessor…Alcorns writing remains top-notch.
