Book Review: The Girl Behind the Red Rope

Grace spends her life in a tight knit community surrounded by people she loves. Kind, generous and friendly her neighbors believe in each other and do whatever it takes to support their friends and family in their shared values. Even when it requires murder.

When her brother, Jamie,  begins to question the holy rules, the red rope and the boundary it represents Grace finds herself caught in the middle and unable to go back to the days before.

Ted Dekker and his daughter Rachelle Dekker team up to release a spine tingling book about the power of fear and the lives we choose because of it. In comparison, it ranks right along with Frank Peretti’s The Oath.  An excellent look into the levels of spiritual warfare and the impact it takes on our daily lives, with or without us knowing it. Fear and the crippling authority we choose to give it often masquerades as protection. It creeps in and binds the lives of the faithful as well as the lives of the unknowing.

The Girl Behind the Red Rope was engaging and even spine tingling. Definitely I recommend it, however for those of you whose husbands are out of town… maybe not reading it at bedtime (speaking of the power of fear!).  Would that we all would see the truth of God’s light in us and the call to live without fear. In perfect love – God’s perfect love – there is no fear. Only peace and joy. What a difference we would all make if we took this truth to heart and lived without a spirit fear.

Happy reading!
