Story Behind the Book
Mark Mynheirs experience as a homicide detective enables him to accurately expose, from an insiders view, the exciting world of law enforcement and crime investigation. It also sets an unassuming scene for the serious spiritual work that needs to be accomplished in Mynheirs main character. While the story unfolds, the reality becomes clear of how many Christians welcome Gods grace and forgiveness for themselves but struggle to extend it to others. They harbor unresolved anger and resentment, often for years, against those who have hurt them. Mynheir challenges readers to identify with fictional characters and to initiate the process of forgiveness in their own lives.

A former U.S. marine, he authors several articles for Focus on the Familys Breakaway magazine for Christian teen boys. Mark and his family live in central Florida .
