The Devil In Pew Number Seven

What would you do if your small family moved to a small town to become the new preacher and you found one individual there that did not want you there? In fact, they would go out of their way to make sure you and your family got the message loud and clear that you aren't wanted and for you to pack up and go home.

Yet you felt strongly in your heart that God has called you to bring the message of love and forgiveness to a church that is being run by one man with the power in his hands to control all the towns money and property that is, except for the church.

When your father decides to stay even at a risk to his live and the lives of his family, all hell truly breaks lose when Mr. Watts decides to take matters into his own hands to make sure that you get the message to leave, dead or alive.

I received the book, The Devil in Pew Number Seven from Tyndale House Publishers for my honest review and found a true story behind it all. It was written by Rebecca Nichols Alonzo and Bob DeMoss, who is the daughter of the preacher, Robert Nichols who is called to the small town of Sellerstown, North Carolina, in hopes of sharing God's message of love and restoration and in the process finds her family terrified beyond what anyone thought possible. What starts off as mere threatening midnight phone calls goes into causing physical harm to the family even with children present in the home. No one is safe!

The author uses information from police reports, crime scene photos and eye witness testimony to convey the details of their story in this wonderful book.

I would rate this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars for the mind blowing reality that this could really take place in small town America even today. The violence that the enemy is willing to use to bring about the fall of the church is eye opening to the reader.

  1. Oh Kat...
    This sounds really good. You are so lucky to be able to review this books and read. Oh how I love to read. My best memories in the summer, were in a corner of the library with a book in my hands. I always thought I wanted to be a librarian. I felt like they were the richest people in the world, because they had so many books at their fingertips.

    I may have to check this one out at Barnes and Noble. I think it would be a really good one.

    Thank you for the little card sweet friend. Coming from you, it meant the world to me. I just adore you and always feel so blessed when you stop by for a visit.

    Many hugs and much love, Sherry
