Overview

"Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples," Jesus said (John 13:35, NLT). Why then are Christians noted for their hateful judgment of each other? Brotherhood of Betrayal illustrates the ugliness of the betrayal syndrome that festers inside the Christian church. Respected missionary pastor Clay McCain leaves his family and growing church in Sweden for a beautiful, wealthy woman. But the Christian community reacts cruelly - even to his innocent abandoned family...

A Family’s Nightmare...

Clay McCain, a high-profile American pastor serving in Stockholm, Sweden, mysteriously disappears. Who can his wife, Rachel, and her three young children turn to for help? Her Swedish friends? Her home church in the United States? Her mission board? Her relatives?

Rachel’s eventual outreach of trust, alongside a shocking discovery, sets off an unexpected avalanche of betrayal that turns her world, her family, and her faith upside down.

This poignant sequel to the bestselling Wisdom Hunter and Jordan’s Crossing dramatically illustrates the hideousness of the betrayal syndrome that is sweeping through the body of Christ—assaulting and devastating families, friends, and churches.

This is a story that touches us all. It may even be your story.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The last thing thirtysomething missionary Rachel McCain expects is for Clay, her husband of 13 years, to disappear while they are stationed in Stockholm. Her world crumbles when she learns that he has run off with another woman. Upon her return to the United States, matters only worsen: her church family treats her with disdain, as if she did something to drive Clay away. Gradually, Rachel puts the pieces of her shattered life back together, while Clay's sense of freedom from the responsibilities of family and church wanes. Returning home to make amends, he sees Rachel and an unknown man planning their wedding. Hit hard by the realization that his family has moved on, Clay faces one of the biggest decisions of his life-whether to throw his former wife into more turmoil by trying to win her back or allow her to have a fresh start with someone else. In this sober account of a ruined marriage and fellow Christians' judgmental attitudes toward a broken family, Arthur (Wisdom Hunter; Jordan's Crossing) continues to examine the theme of Christian legalism, with its overemphasis on abiding the letter of the law-seeing sin in every thought, word, and deed-at the expense of its spirit (love and faith).
