Wakulla Book Review: Brother Half Angel by Martin Roth
Wakulla Book Review
“Brother Half Angel” by Martin Roth
This book is about an American husband and wife who go to China to work at an underground church under the pretence of being English teachers. While there, the church comes under attack by a group called the Boxers who kill a Christian and cut off his hands and throw him over the wall of the church.
Uncle Ling, the leader of the church, has a dark past and many secrets. The hero of the story is Brother Half Angel, who gets his name because of a tattoo of an angel on his forearm that was cut in half, along with his arm. He is a soldier in a secret army for the church sent to help. There are lies, deceit, murder and plenty of action.
Uncle Ling in this story does not trust God to fix all things and pays the ultimate price – his life. Because of the content it is for mature readers. Leave your troubles with God – He will take care of all things.
Like most Christian writing – obey and trust in God and He will provide.
The hero in this book is a soldier and has had to kill for the church. The question is, does a Christian kill to protect the innocent? Do you kill to protect someone when there is no other way?
I liked it very much and being this is a five-book collection I am looking forward to how some issues play out.
A WAKULLA BOOK REVIEW
I want to personally thank all the men who are reviewing the books written by JOHN 3:16 AUTHORS. I am thankful that we are able to bless them and appreciate the encouragement given to us by their reviews.
Their insights, comments, and encouragement mean a lot. Steve said I (Lorilyn Roberts) could visit the prison and I hope to do that sometime in the near future. I ultimately look forward to the day when we are free in the Lord's presence to worship together our Risen King!
Each WEEK (usually on Tuesday), we are posting reviews from Wakulla Correctional inmates of John 3:16 books.
Inmates are loving the new books from John 3:16 authors. Chaplain Steve Fox is adding the new books to the prison library in this initiative to "change lives to ensure a safer Florida."
