By Many or By Few
Compelling, well-written, and action-packed, By Many or By Few, the second entry in an outstanding series, stands out among recent spiritual thrillers in presenting an entertaining mystery while adhering to Christian truth.
Rebecca Manguson travels to New York for a tender reunion with Matt Clark, the dashing former U.S. Navy officer with whom she survived a life-and-death battle in the timeless war of good versus evil. Within hours of arriving, however, she finds herself escaping from a kidnapping attempt and on the run, hiding from the man she should have been able to trust, heart, spirit, and soul.
Something ancient is at work, something that seeks to use American society to plant insidious seeds of evil in the minds and morals of its most vulnerable and hopeful citizens – children.
Uncovering and preventing this conspiracy takes Rebecca, her twin brother, Luke, detective Sid Belton, Bible scholar Dr. Eleanor Chapel, and a tested-but-renewed Matt from the gritty streets of Manhattan to the scenic shores of Chesapeake Bay, where Rebecca finds herself caught in a desperate showdown to prevent the death of a world leader and the domino effect that would allow corruption and destruction.

When Rebecca is swimming – trying to get back to her friends – and she realizes she is reaching the limits of her seemingly limitless resources, the calmly accepts what God has in store for her. I marked this passage and have read it several times: “Isolated, an infinitesimal speck in one sense, the center of God’s universe in another, she actually smiled.” What a beautiful, clear way to express a profound truth...”
