Overview

The Sacrifice by Robert Whitlow

The most powerful weapon against evil is sacrifice.

Attorney Scott Ellis is defending Lester Garrison, a 16-year-old accused of opening gunfire on a Sunday afternoon church gathering.

At the same time, Scott's volunteer work at the local high school brings him into contact with Kay Wilson, an English teacher and former girlfriend. Unknown to either of them, Catawba High School is not just a place of learning--it's a battleground for an age-old struggle between good and evil. On one side are praying students and a simple janitor with an extraordinary faith. On the other side is a deeply troubled young man intent on mass destruction.

Caught in the middle, Scott and Kay learn that lasting victory will require the ultimate sacrifice.

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.

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.

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, 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.

Riveting, heartbreaking, thought-provoking -- a good read! Makes me stop and think of how I need to pray, pray, pray! Pray for safety in our schools, on our playgrounds, in the home...Pray that God will send His guardian angels to watch over our children and grandchildren.
