    Riveting --and inspiring-- to the very last page

    Although a practicing Jew, I enjoy Christian fiction, especially the pen I have recently discovered in author Robert Whitlow. After reading The Sacrifice, it's not too hard to understand why Whitlow has been called a Christian version of John Grisham. This was an engrossing legal thriller, entertaining and riveting to the very last page, while carrying many moral and religious themes, exploring darkness, light, good, evil, salvation, faith, trust in a Heavenly Father and more. One of the most prominent themes, however, is the efficacy of prayer. In a post-Columbine world, with a depressed, morally confused, spiritually empty generation of teenagers and high schoolers, this book touches upon the vital and urgently necessary power of prayer in public schools. The central characters involve a young attorney, his old high school ex-girlfriend and now colleague in teaching a group of high school students in a mock trial competition, students intent of prayer, faith, and love, other deeply troubled students intent on hate and destruction... and, my favorite charater, Tao pang, a 'simple' immigrant janitor in the high school who barely speaks a word of English. I felt I lived with these characters, especially Tao. I look forward to reading Whitlow's other books, for which, if this book is any indication, I'm in for a treat.

    This lawyers story is perfection

    The Sacrifice by Robert Whitlow The Sacrifice is a masterpiece of suspense, mystery and romance. Every detail of this lawyer's story is perfection. Mr. Whitlow shows that no one is beyond reach. Even the most down-and-out hope for second chances and some are willing to give the ultimate sacrifice to give them their second chance. If you like Grisham, you'll love Whitlow.

    'The Sacrifice', best book of the year!

    Robert Whitlow's newest novel, 'The Sacrifice', is the best of his three novels. The previous works, 'The List' and 'The Trial'. were excellent books, but 'The Sacrifice' is by far the most exciting. The writing is fluid, the story is captivating and the ending is gripping. I think 'The Sacrifice' should be required reading for every pastor, teacher, parent, grandparent and teen. The book kept my attention and I could not put it down, reading it in one sitting. I intend to read it again and again.

    An Incredible Read!

    The Sacrifice, Whitlow's third novel, addresses some of the issues behind school violence - unfortunately, not a thing of the past, as last week in Germany demonstrated. Whitlow's work is spiritital, helpful, romantic, and we see glimpses of the author's dry humor from time to time. This book should be read by every educator/student/parent.
