The Deliverer by Linda Rios Brook

This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is introducing
The Deliverer by Linda Rios Brook
(Published by Realms, May 5, 2009)


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Linda Rios Brook, President of the RiosBrook Foundation, believes the answers to issues of social justice and righteousness lie in the proper alignment between the church, the marketplace and media and entertainment. She is a sought out speaker and teacher on matters relevant to cultural restoration.

Linda worked as a media executive for over 20 years in the field of broadcasting serving as President and General Manager of television stations in Texas, Florida, and Minnesota and was President and part owner of KLGT-TV in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota.

Linda has served on several national boards and community organizations and is listed in Who's Who of American Women. She is an ordained minister and has a Doctorate of Practical Ministry from the Wagner Leadership Institute.

Linda is also the author of Lucifer's Flood. She is a teaching Pastor at Covenant Centre International in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida and is married to Larry Brook, who is the Executive Director of the RiosBrook Foundation.


ABOUT THE BOOK

Ancient language expert Samantha Yale returns to translate a new batch of scrolls written by the fallen angel from Lucifer's Flood.

Samantha Yale has taken on a daunting translation project. A set of scrolls, delivered by a man she knows nothing about, tells a fascinating and frightening tale of what went on behind the scenes of biblical history. What is even more incredible is who is telling the tale - a fallen angel who immediately regretted his decision to side with Lucifer.

With The Deliverer, Linda Rios Brook brings new depth of imagery into the spirit world. It is a story about rebellion and consequences. It is about demonic strategy to disrupt and destroy the people of God. But ultimately, it is a story about the unrelenting love, grace, mercy, and determination of a sovereign God in pursuit of His children.

Read the first chapter of The Deliverer.

NOTE: I'm participating in this week's blog tour, but I have not read this book. For a cautionary review, please visit Window to My World.

Thanks for stopping by Window To My World. As you know, I have some serious problems with this book. Not a favorite at all. Perhaps you will shed different perspective.

Visit as often as you can, and we'll support each other getting the word out!

Thanks for the comment. As I read the overview I had questions about the fallen angel repenting concept. So I noted at the end of my post that I'm just participating in the tour and haven't read it myself! lol But yeah, I can see that this book might not make it into some church libraries. :-)

Hi Lyn,
Thanks for dropping by Fiction Showcase. I haven't read the book either; couldn't get past the blurb about the fallen angel repenting.

Have a great week.

Had a comment from someone regarding the comments. Here's an edited version: "So sorry for those missing out on this book ... my teenage son has been drawn closer to God as he has been reading this book."

I haven't read "The Deliverer" either, but did try to read "Lucifer's Flood" (Brook's first book in this series) - I couldn't finish it. The theology is bad: she refers to God the Father as Yahweh and God the Son as Adonai and the Spirit as some other title for God - which is subtle tri-deism not trinitarianism. And the writing is pretty weak. I ended up skimming the whole book and giving it back to the person who let me borrow it.

I would not recommended "Lucifer's Flood," and so I can't recommend the rest of this series either.

Don't forget everyone - this is written and marketed as FICTION and as a NOVEL, not as theology or actual events occurring. I'm a pastor and I've read her work.

The whole concept of the "repenting angel" is not understood here, especially if you haven't read her. The fallen angel clearly acknowledges his sin and fault and the "repentance" that's written about is the struggle about realizing they've made the wrong choice and chose the wrong side and are repentant afterwards, but they know it's too late.

This is no different than what Jesus talked about re: the rich young ruler in hell who discovered he had made the wrong choices - don't you think Hell is full of people who are repentant and wish they could go back and make different choices?? Of course it is, that is part of the torment Jesus teaches on re: Hell.

Regardless, it is fiction, so facts that are 100% accurate are kind of irrelevant.

Now there's a very thin line between theology and fiction.
