Overview

The Jesus Factory is a riveting adventure novel of the spirit that reveals the lost message of the hidden apostle. This is the story of one man's search beyond religious fundamentalism to discover the real meaning of Christ's message. The story is about Peter Andrews, a young handsome charismatic minister and the woman of his dreams, Ann Park. Together, they heard the call to preach the gospel and save souls for Christ. Peter had everything going for him; good looks, great personality and a fire in his belly to become the greatest preacher the world had ever seen. Ann also felt the call to preach, but because she was a woman, she was not allowed to fulfill her dream. Their story is one of love, tenderness, ambition, tragedy and redemption. They were happy and content, until they met Jeremiah, and then their world turned upside down. After Jeremiah offers Peter fame and wealth and political power, Peter abandons his family to reach the summit of power. His choice destroys his family and almost kills him. As the story begins, Peter silently waits in his room at the Northside Sanitarium. He is about to commit suicide, when a young woman shows him some compassion. A journalism major; she tries to unravel the mystery that is Peter Andrews. That’s where our story begins. His long journey and dark night of the soul has only just begun. Eventually he recovers and sets out to find the real truth behind his faith. His journey takes him from Chicago to New Orleans aboard a tramp steamer to Rome, then on to Athens and finally to Turkey, where he meets spiritual messengers and the apostle of the apostles. Peter’s story reaches into the very darkest corners of the human heart and the motives of today's religious power brokers. It lays bare the manipulations of the church messengers of intolerance and challenges us to see a new more feminine side of the creator. This is a journey that you won't soon forget.

Editorial Reviews

Diane Donovan
A thoughtful and very highly recommended read. The true message of Christ can often be lost in a sea of other agenda. "The Jesus Factory: An Adventure Novel of the Spirit That Reveals the Lost Message of the Hidden Apostle" tells a story of a hidden apostle with a new and very different message for the world. Written out of the faith of author Scott Lindquist, "The Jesus Factory" will prove a thoughtful and very highly recommended read.
Rev. Anna Joy
I highly recommend The Jesus Factory. Scott Lindquist has done a superb job of making interesting reading of an important topic. With well-drawn characters, engaging plot, and sound theology, Scott makes us think. He invites the reader to look beyond the manipulation of human needs by so-called spiritual leaders to think for ourselves. You will be glad you read The Jesus Factory. It will call you to a more realistic and powerful spirituality.
Rev. Eliakim Thorpe
Spiritual Concepts of God
“In his book, "The Jesus Factory", Scott Lindquist presents profound spiritual principles that makes one re-evaluate their own spirituality. This book will challenge your concept of God to help you move beyond a finite and limited view of God through a beautifully woven story of believable characters. If you are seeking the real truth of God, this book will gently re-awaken the soul to a deeper discovery of God. This is a must read for all Pastors, Ministers.
Rev. John Strickland
This Isn't Your Grandparents' Take on Jesus
This book illustrates how closed-mindedness and harsh judgmentalism have actually distorted the authentic message of Jesus. And this book gives me hope for a better world and a more tolerant, loving view of Christ. this book gives me hope for a better world and a more tolerant, loving view of Christ. But the book is not merely theology. It is a great story of Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained. It is a book of redemption and hope.
Steve McSwain
Scott has written a most remarkable novel. I'm not sure how our paths crossed but I'm glad they did. By chapter three, I was hooked. I think I finished reading it in two sittings. I found Scott Lindquist's book to be challenging, insightful, and empowering. Thought-provoking, raw at times, and yet possessing a yearning throughout for Spiritual fulfillment, the book will be a cover to cover read in record time. I would recommend this to true seekers of any faith.

    Reviewed by Lori M for Readers Favorite

    Remember how Dan Brown’s “The DaVinci Code,” while being fiction, got people talking about their beliefs or lack of belief in organized religion? “The Jesus Factory” by Scott Lindquist is such a book. Through a fictional story, Lindquist presents a story about the lost message of a hidden apostle and the main character’s (Pete) search for spiritual truth. Much as Jesus presented lessons in the form of parables in the Bible, this story unfolds in the same way in that it really is a lesson or a thought-provoking issue for each reader as an individual but they are reading it as part of a story of someone else’s struggle.

    Before I became a Christian, I hated televangelists and what I thought of as “organized religion” because those issues have been so manipulated by some that it is enough to turn you against God. “The Jesus Factory” addresses those very same issues and invites the reader to think for himself about spiritual matters, while actually drawing the reader nearer to a relationship with God. Pete, the focal character in the book, has to reconcile his beliefs with his experiences of preachers using the Bible as a weapon to humiliate and control people and the petty politics of church congregations.

    Christians, non-Christians, agnostics, and seekers will all enjoy this book because the plot is good and the story line is relatable. There is a theme in the book about empowering women and gender equality that isn’t overdone. It is a good read, but may be an emotional rollercoaster for some.
