Overview

They have the house, the two kids, and the minivan. They have a well-meaning but shallow church. What Sherry doesn't know is that Doug has a shameful struggle with his thought life. When an exotic dancer's life intersects theirs, this suburban couple has to make a hard choice: do they risk their convenience and security for her sake, or do they cross to the other side of the road? The dark forces will not easily give up their most important pawn. But Ronnie must come out of the darkness, for only she can unravel a plot of devastating destruction.

“Who knew Christian fiction could be so exciting—and so relevant to the times? A fascinating tale of people caught up in temptation, spiritual mediocrity, and high-tech terrorism, The Lights of Tenth Street is an edge-of-your-seat spiritual thriller.”

Bill McCartney

Founder and President, Promise Keepers

“The Light Shines in Darkness…”

At either end of Tenth Street in Atlanta, the welcome lights of two separate establishments beckon passersby—the staid and proper Trinity Chapel and The Challenger, a popular gentlemen’s club. Within them dwell conflicting sets of values and people who have radically divergent stories and very different lives—or do they?

******************

Ronnie Hanover leaves an abusive home situation for her dream of going to college in the city. When she takes a lucrative job waitressing at a strip club on Tenth Street, she finds herself trapped in the life of an exotic dancer—and tangled up in an espionage scheme drawn straight from today’s headlines.

At the other end of Tenth Street, Doug and Sherry Turner have the house, the two kids, the minivan, and a respectable church attendance. But Doug also has a serious battle with his thought life that his wife does not begin to comprehend.

When Ronnie’s life intersects theirs, Doug and Sherry must decide if they’re willing to risk their convenience and security to respond to her cry for help. As angelic forces do battle behind the veil, it’s clear that the choice Doug and Sherry make…and how they confront painful issues in their marriage…has the terrifying power to deepen—or illuminate—the spiritual darkness.

    A Good Look at a Touchy Situation in Families...

    Pornography in the Christian family. What a touchy subject. Author Shaunti Feldhahn does and excellent job of entertwining entertainment with the risky subject in this book. Truths are interjected thoughout the pages as you get a glimpse of what it might be like inside a family with this struggle. Characters are believable, and I recommend this book, especially to a wife living in this situation.

    Loved it

    I usually don't like reading but love that this has a gritty story but with a christian heart. No curse words, graphic enough to get the idea without being book porn.

    Pornography is a very real threat in this day and age and anyone

    Pornography is a very real threat in this day and age and anyone who says otherwise hasn't looked at a TV or a magazine or any other form of media.
    Our young boys and teenagers are exposed at every angle from the internet to their peers.  
    The comment by MurryHill doesn't seem to want to live in the real world. Spiritual warfare is all around.  Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it isn't there. You can't see the wind either but you know it is there. I hope this country wakes up before it is too late!

    Depressing and implausible.

    I am guessing that the author was trying to make a point or teach a lesson through this book. I found it depressing. But I did enjoy the interaction with angels near the end. Not one I would recommend or read again.

    A good read. I bought 3 copies for my friends.

    The characters face very relevant problems. The author's glimpse into spiritual warfare is quite believable. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others.

    Unbelievable

    The characters were stereotypical and much of the story was cliche. The girl from a broken family falls in with the wrong crowd. The wide-eyed, goody-goody, hot chocolate swilling Christians. Hello! we are a bit less one-dimensional than the way we are portrayed in this book. The premise of a terrorist empire based in an Atlanta strip club is implausible. The book's antagonist has no motivations for his actions and he is not a fully-developed character, as are most of the characters in this novel. While I agree there are dangers for young women in the way the sex industry deceives, recruits, uses, and abuses them, this book falls short of addressing these issues. It would have been a stronger story if the author would have remained focused and built on the sex industry storyline rather than veering off in a plethora of directions including an improbable plot to use the strip club as a means to rule the world. The relationships and the reality of recruiting tactics and the consequences of involvement in the sex industry are glossed over in an attempt to over-reach in a conglomeration of too many under-developed plot lines.
