Back Cover Description:


When every formula fails. When being right no longer matters. When the faith that once held all the answers now only holds questions. This is where redemption begins.
Pastor Jason Faircloth knows what he believes. His clear faith, in fact, is why he is one of the most prominent pastors in Atlanta. He relies on it to discipline his daughter, his wife, his church. He prays daily that others would come to see God's ways as he does. And it will cost him everything he has.

What does it take to soften a heart so entrenched in law that it never truly loves?
Groping for answers in the face of tragedy, Jason determines to find the one person left who might provide healing: the granddaughter kept hidden from him. His search takes him on an international adventure-and deep into his tormented soul.

A fast-paced suspense novel rich in spiritual depth, Wisdom Hunter explores what it means to break free of Christian legalism and discover how grace can make the difference between life and death.

Review:


This captivating, fast paced book digs deep and makes you answer the question: When everything is torn away what do I really believe? Through the life of Reverend Jason Faircloth, we see a life, picture perfect on the outside, with a rigid, empty and cold reality inside....until it all falls apart leaving Jason to question what he once held as absolute, unbendable truth. He questions God and leaves the church, his morals, everything he has ever known behind in search of the true meaning of life...and his last chance to make things right...his granddaughter. Find out what happens when he realizes what salvation truly is and what grace means by reading this spell binding book, Wisdom Hunter.
