In "The Brotherhood" by Jerry B. Jenkins, Boone Drake is a rookie cop for the Chicago Police Department. He wants to make a difference and help clean up the streets of Chicago. When a tragic accident changes Boone’s life, he has to deal with the death of his loved ones, the guilt of believing he could have prevented it and anger toward God for allowing it to happen. Boone slowly begins to heal with the help of Pastor Sosa and his partner, Jack. When Boone is promoted, he meets a new friend, Haeley, and also finds himself doing what he started out to do, putting an end to the gangs in Chicago. Boone becomes a stronger man of faith and is able to find love when he least expected.
This was a book that dealt with a lot of issues many of us have to face in our lives. We all go through tough times that test us and our faith in God. During those times we find out how strong we are and that we need God and our family and friends to help us. This was a great book and was a fast read because you want to know what happens with Boone and see if he can stand all the tests God puts him through. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Tyndale House Publishers.
