What would it look like if the expression “God-incidence” was embodied in a novel? It might well be titled Family Secrets.
In this fast-paced novel combining romance, intrigue, adventure, and yes, theology, Nancy Petrey brings to life the questions of God’s guidance, miracles, and the difficulties of standing as one of the faithful in a difficult time.
She also addresses issues of antisemitism, love, forgiveness, and redemption. As her characters explore their Jewish roots, the action moves from Mississippi State University, to churches and synagogues, to homes in New York City, to the Land of Israel, the action never stops.
Though this is fiction, the history is carefully researched, and the book features Dr. Michael Brown, the world’s foremost Messianic Jewish apologist and author, whose ideas and teaching are influential.
This book is fun, educational, and profoundly challenging.
