In His Love

Disclaimer: I received this eBook from the author, T.K. Chapin for free to read and review. I was not required to give a favorable review only an honest review, nor was I compensated for my review. All thoughts and comments in this review are my own.
John Quinby, a reporter for The Globe, was on assignment to write a story about the suicide-death of a gay young man, Billy Wilcox. He was to spin his story so that Billy’s Fundamentalist Christian mother would be portrayed as an unloving, uncaring mother who inadvertently caused her son to commit suicide because of her Christian beliefs. Instead…through Jena Wilcox, John found what true Christian love is and that Jena had suspicions her son was murdered…he did not commit suicide. After his interview with Jena…John also had doubts that Billy’s death was suicide. In his research he found that Billy was once an avid spokesperson for the LGBT community, but near the end of his life, he had begun to question the hole in his heart that nothing could fill. He found the answer to filling that hole at the Inn at The Lake and was now on a mission to share this new-found hole-filling love and information with his LGBT followers…someone upset enough to make sure Billy’s video’s never aired.
Wow! Controversial subject for sure, however T.K. Chapin shares the true word of God regarding this subject in this book. He has woven scripture into a Christian fiction mystery novel that will reach deep into your soul with thought-provoking events both from the stand-point of the LGBT community and also from the Christian community. He shows that both sides are at fault in the blame game and especially shows Christians that no matter the life-style you are to love the person, but not the sin and as Christians we are compelled to show love and compassion, not hate because God does not condone hate or confusion on any level. I love that he shared “you can’t cherry-pick” which part of the Bible you are going to believe or not believe just because it doesn’t fit your lifestyle. You either believe it all…or not at all. Simply put…sin is sin!
After reading this book, Mr. Chapin reaffirmed my belief...dislike the sin, but love the person with all your heart.
Thank you, Mr. Chapin for another great book. I hope everyone who reads this book will find in it the love and compassion you are trying to convey…and that two wrongs…don’t make it right. My opinion is…If we as Christians show hate we are just as guilty.
