Book Review - More than Conquerors by Kathi Macias

True love ignites their passionate pursuit of His call With violent crime on the rise and the political climate changing throughout certain parts of Mexico, the opportunity for open Christian witness, particularly in some areas of Chiapas State, is rapidly decreasing. Hector Rodriguez pastors a small church in the tourist-popular border town of Tijuana. He also routinely carries Bibles deeper into the hostile areas of Mexico, where he ministers despite increasing difficulty and persecution. Hectors mother accompanied him on one of those trips and felt God called her to stay in the little village of San Juan Chamula, where she uses the Scriptures to teach reading to the families who are open to it. In retaliation for Hectors bringing the Bibles into areas hostile to Christians and in an effort to dissuade him from continuing to expand his ministry there, Hectors mother is murdered. Hector must decide if he will continue his work despite his worries about protecting his wife and children.
My Review:
Last month I posted a review of No Greater Love by Kathi Macias, the first book in her Extreme Devotion series. I adored that book. Truthfully, one of the best reads I've had in a long, long time. The second book in the series, More than Conquerors, was a bit different experience for me. In More than Conquerors the characters were very interesting, as was the premise. It was also an amazing story of faith and love, but it read very slow for me. The characters were given to introspection. As I said, it's still a very well-written, interesting book. I would recommend it, but don't expect the pace to be non-stop action like No Greater Love. I'm excited to read Kathi's third book in the Extreme Devotion series Red Ink. Whether it's fast-paced like No Greater Love or more thoughtful like More than Conquerors, I'm sure it'll be tremendous.

  4. Thanks, Tahereh. It's hard when you absolutely love one book by an author, but another is slower than you'd like. But I've learned as an author that each book takes on it's own life, sometimes beyond the author's control!
