ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
If you would like to read the first chapter of The Judas Ride, go HERE
Deciding to go on "The Judas Ride" is not a Sunday afternoon ride through the country. It is a jumping into a car without your seatbelt going 110 mph on the streets of New York. There is nothing comfortable about it. It will take many readers out of their comfort zone. It explores subjects that few people have to deal with on a day to day basis. Much less as young teenagers.
Our world is very much like this book today. Raw. Edgy. Desperate for hope. There is a LOT of desperation in this book. What I find lacking is hope which is sad for a book of Christian fiction. One of the main characters is a pastor and even he is as lacking and confused as the rest of the characters in the book. I realize that pastors are human and have their "moments", but Pastor Manny truly disappointed me.
I wish I could say I recommend this book, however the "Judas Ride" is one I would just skip.
