John Cross is a small-town pastor, determined to lead his flock to follow God's calling. No one would suspect him of having a checkered past.
The truth is, the man behind the pulpit preaching to his sheep was once a wolf, an assassin for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). When John started following Christ, he put that work behind him, and determined to pay penance for all the lives he took, vowing to never kill again.
Now someone is after the peaceful pastor, trying to get him to pay for his sins with his own life. When a terrorist, out for revenge, walks into the church, John's secrets are exposed. Confronted with a past he thought he could leave behind, he must confront his demons and discover whether a man can truly change. Can he keep his vow, even when the people he loves are in mortal danger? Will his congregation and the brave woman he's learning to care about get caught in the cross fire? In the end, his death may be the only sacrifice he has left to give.
Andrew Huff's debut novel is not only a gripping story of suspense, it's also a deep exploration of the moral quandaries we face when we choose to follow the Prince of Peace in a violent world.
