A compelling and deeply personal account of a young man's spiritual plunge into a movement called "the River," which claims to be spreading the kingdom of God through signs and wonders. Warnings of divine retribution keep many adherents in bondage, afraid to speak out or even question those things they are taught and are witness to. For Kevin Reeves, the determination to rescue his family came to the forefront. Even if the cost was high and even if he had to stand alone, his journey back to the freedom and simplicity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ would be worth the price. 231 pages, softcover from Lighthouse Trails.
