Ted Dekker, Rachelle Dekker – The Girl Behind the Red Rope

Ten years ago, Grace saw something that would forever change the course of history. When evil in its purest form is unleashed on the world, she and others from their religious community are already hidden deep in the hills of Tennessee, abiding by every rule that will keep them safe, pure – and alive. As long as they stay there, behind the red perimeter.

Her older brother’s questions and the arrival of the first outsiders she’s seen in a decade set in motion events that will question everything Grace has built her life on. Enemies rise on all sides – but who is the real enemy? And what will it cost her to uncover the truth?

For the first time, best-selling authors Ted Dekker and Rachelle Dekker team up and deliver an intense, tightly focused ride through the most treacherous world of all.

The story is comparable to what the disciples faced in Acts when confronting the religious leaders with the truth of Jesus Christ. So, in that aspect, I liked it very much. However, Ted gets a little carried away with implying that government and laws only exist out of fear. He implies that those who break laws should not be punished because that isn’t “love.” As usual, Ted takes his desire to emphasize the importance of love over religion a tad too far. But overall it was a gripping story with some good supernatural elements and a narrator I could listen to forever.
