More Than Conquerors by Kathi MaciasKathi has done it again written a book so riveting it refuses to let the reader put it down until the last page is read. Once again, take this reviewers advice, carve out a whole day (if you are a slow reader such as myself) because you will not want to take a break even to tend the tyranny of the urgent.Where No Greater Love was heartbreaking, More Than Conquerors is heartwarming, but not in a fuzzy, sentimental way. Kathi takes her readers on a romp with a warm, loving family the Rodriguez family. In their relationships we see what Christian family life ought to be. We become quickly attached to these characters. We cheer for their accomplishments; but hold our breath when danger, not only looms, but breaks with violent force upon its unsuspecting victims. We want to fall to our knees to pray for Gods protection for these hapless people, then realize its fiction, duh! Well, actually, not. Although the Extreme Devotion Series is fiction, each book is based upon true stories drawn from the persecuted church. Thus the urge to fall to our knees to pray for the persecuted church is actually an appropriate response.Where No Greater Love ended tragically, at least from a secular point of view, More Than Conquerors halts the story at a celebration and the beginning of another story. Indeed, More Than Conquerors will conquer your heart.
Kathi in writing More than Conquerors has written a book that has captured the essence of what many missionaries face on a day to day basis. The story tells of God's people that have accepted a call on their lives, and how their faith, and sometimes lack of faith and trust served as their anchor, as they perservered through danger and trials in their lives. Although the story has its share of tragedies, I found it to be very uplifting in the way God worked in the lives of the characters. This is another great book from the extreme devotion series.
It is fantastic that the second book of the Extreme Devotion series has already been released! Kathi Maciass gift of writing is yet again displayed in her latest book. In More Than Conquerors, Kathi challenges her readers faith walk to go to a deeper level. More Than Conquerors is a compelling, action-packed read with an inspirational message. The primary characters courageous stand for Christ should encourage all Christians to have a bold witness for Him. More Than Conquerors is an excellent book that I highly recommend. Dont miss out on reading this book!
More than Conquerors is a fun read that grabbed my attention from the first page and held it to the end. The characters are caught up in dramatic events that force them to confront their own faith-or lack of faith. The setting in todays Mexico with the problems of gangs and religious persecution adds to the tension in the story line. While easy to read, More than Conquerors raises some difficult questions. Do we desire the safety of our loved ones more than their obedience to God? If what we say we believe does not govern how we live, then do we really believe it? This is a book that can be read purely for entertainment, but can also be a challenge to any believers perception of their own life and faith. With fast-paced action and an inspiring message, More than Conquerors is a book that youll be glad you read.
