Outlaw Marshal Book Giveaway
This week's book review and giveaway features Al and JoAnna Lacy's book, Outlaw Marshal. This is a book where the Old West meets Gospel tent meeting. I have to admit, this book wasn't really my taste -- I'm not a fan of westerns and I also thought it was a little simplistic and heavy-handed with its "get saved" message. I think this is a matter of personal taste, rather than a defect in the novel. If you've read other books by this husband and wife author team or if you think you might enjoy a Christian based western, you can win one of TWO copies of this book right here. Just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll draw the winners this Friday, February 20, 2009. Good luck! If you don't win, you can purchase Outlaw Marshal at www.amazon.com and other booksellers.
Below is a summary from the publishers and information regarding the authors.
John “The Stranger” Brockman is back by popular demand!
A good deed grants outlaw Whipley Langford early release from prison and a friendship with Chief U.S. Marshal John Brockman. Another good deed gets Whip framed for murder and looking at life through a hangman’s noose. John arrives just in time to reveal the true murderers and lead Whip to Christ.
A new man and a fast draw, Whip becomes Brockman’s deputy. Life is still fast and dangerous, and there’s a pretty lady Whip would like to get to know better too. Before he admits his love, Whip is shot in a bank robbery. Survival looks slim until he awakens to hear his lady confess her love. Weeks later, they are married.
Readers who are familiar with the Journeys of the Stranger and Angel of Mercy series reunite with well-loved characters John and Breanna Brockman. Western history buffs will enjoy a wholesome, fast-paced story where the Gospel is presented clearly. Christian readers will learn how to lean on the Lord in times of trial and non-Christians will have the opportunity to make Christ their Savior.
