Product Description

This story is amazing and true about the relentless persecution of a young family in North Carolina in the 1970's. Robert Nichols was called to be a pastor in Sellerstown, North Carolina and he moved his family there. The church welcomed them with open arms, except for one-the one man sitting in pew number seven. Daughter Rebecca Nichols Alonzo relays this horrifying story of the harassment and violence her family dealt with by the hands of this angry man, a power house in their small town. From harassing phone calls, to dynamite outside the house, to the eventful day when Rebecca was eight and tragedy struck her family, you will be moved by this family's response-faith, courage, and forgiveness.

Rebecca Alonzo's The Devil in Pew Number Seven details her horrifying childhood story of a terror campaign intended to expel her family from their home and her father from his pulpit. The account covers more than a half-decade of living in fear of harassment, bombings, and shootings, as well as the family's unceasing prayers for protection. Rebecca's thrilling narrative, all the more chilling for its truth, is ultimately a message of reconciliation, mercy, and amazing forgiveness in the face of heartbreaking tragedy.

The tale highlights how Mr. Watts, a religious power-broker, used every means available to drive away Rebecca's father, Robert Nichols, and regain his lost influence in the community. Following Rebecca as she grows, living under the constant fear of death, the book ranges from touching romance and spiritual revivals to tension-filled hostage situations and acts of terrorism. The firsthand account and emotional testimony make apathy impossible; Rebecca's experience is as compelling as it is realistic.

What gives the story its power is the humility and obedience with which Robert obeys God's calling to remain, despite the attacks on his family. "One side does its fighting with terrorist tactics--dynamite, letting air out of tires, cutting phone lines and shooting out lights. The other side answers with preaching, prayer, patience and the sheriff." Despite the danger, the book not only emphasizes, but repeatedly lives out the biblical maxim: "A good shepherd will lay down his life for his flock."

The Devil in Pew Number Seven is a powerful, potentially life-changing book. It practices exactly what it preaches: sound doctrine, and grace far beyond the norm. There is violence, but it is not gory, exaggerated, or glorified. Ultimately, this book can provide anyone a convicting, modern-day example of the power of forgiveness. This book is highly recommended for all. -Ryan Dennison, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
