The Guardian by Robbie Cheuvront and Erik Reed

 Available September 2011


A Mysterious Scroll Holds the Key to Mankind's Destiny
A young woman thrust into a world of power and corruption...
The sold-out follower of Christ who vows to defend her...
And the scroll that links them both together...
Anna Riley has just stumbled across a family secret--her ancestors have been keepers of an ancient scroll that God gave to John the Disciple.  And now it's hers.  But Anna will soon discover that being the keeper of the Scroll comes at a price, for there are those inside the Church who would have the scroll and its secrets at any cost.  Sucked into a world of corruption and deceit, Anna is thrust into a journey that leads her half way around the world.  And the only person she can trust is a stranger named Jason Lang who, she's told, was appointed by God to help her with the task.
As Anna and Jason race against the clock, Anna's own journey of faith may very well be the thing that unlocks the scroll's secrets.  And her decisions will determine whether the man she's grown to love will live or die, as a mystery that's eluded the world since the time of Adam and Eve is finally revealed.


 "To him that has ears, let him hear"

Do you hear Him?  When it is quiet and you are alone and still can you hear the voice of God?  Are you even listening?  How many times a day do we pause and ask ourselves if what we are thinking, feeling, doing is God's will?  The Guardian can be read as a fairly straight forward religious thriller not unlike the DaVinci Code and it is a fun read if that is all you are asking from the book.

However, it does have a deeper message.  Where will your journey in faith take you on life's path?   Our purpose here is not simply to provide ourselves and our families with stuff and entertainment.  It is also a journey of the soul.  We need to keep our eyes and hearts open to the purpose that God has for each of us.  Like the characters in The Guardian we must all 'play our part' faithfully in God's plan.  If you read The Guardian as more than just another suspenseful mystery then you will find yourself asking some pretty tough questions.  

How often do you listen to the voice of God?
