When pastor Jordan Rau, an avowed liberal, accepted a position with a European missions agency, his decision was not based on an opportunity to serve God, but on the monetary rewards the position would bring him.

Shortly after his family's arrival in Germany, Jordan's priorities dramatically change. When his young son, Chase, is murdered, Jordan becomes obsessed with finding his son's killers and delivering justice by his own hand. Driven by hatred and revenge, he sets out on a course of action that will destroy not only the murderers, but his own family - and only a miracle can stop him.

Sequel to Wisdom Hunter.

"When Pastor Jordan Rau accepted a position with a European missions agency, his decision was not based on an opportunity to serve God, but on the monetary rewards the position would bring him.
However, after his family's arrival in Germany, Jordan's priorities dramatically change when his young son, Chase, is murdered. Abandoning his faith in God, Jordan becomes obsessed with finding his son's killers and delivering justice by his own hand. Driven by hatred and revenge, he sets out on a course of action that will destroy not only the murderers, but his own family as well - and only a miracle can stop him.
This suspenseful, action-packed novel offers insight and healing to those affected by liberalism in the church. Readers will recognize Jordan Crossing's pastor Jason Faircloth as the desperate seeker from WISDOM HUNTER, Randall Arthur's first novel about issues of faith."

This is one of those books that just leave you with a warm feeling. The first book in this series is called, "Wisdom Hunter". The story is of a pastor, Pastor Jordan, who has verbally abused his wife and daughter to the point that the daughter moves out and moves on with her life...trying to find someone to love her as she feels her father's "staunch Biblical ways" are anyting but loving. His wife, who also feels as the daughter does, remains with her husband, but feels each day as though a piece of her is dying...especially with no communication from their only daughter. Until one day, they receive word that their daughter has died in childbirth. The book takes you through Jordan's struggles...and then leads you into this book, "Jordan'sCrossing".

Jordan's Crossing, picks up where "Wisdom Hunter" left off. Jordan has collected what was left of his life and decided to use the rest of his days serving the Lord as never before. He gets this opportunity by helping those who are hurt...either by circumstances... or especially, hurt from other Brothers and Sisters in Christ.

This really is a must read. You won't be sorry!
