Pierced by a Sword
I first read this gripping novel in 1998 after being away from the Church for 10+ years. Almost overnight I had a conversion after reading this story. It helped me to understand that a faith well-lived is often messy and that's okay. A great plot, characters, and message will keep you up late at night turning pages. Our entire family highly recommends this book and the other 2 by the same author.
