The Missionary by William Carmichael and David Lambert

Seems like this was the week for suspenseful reads. I've got another fabulous edge of your seat" novel for you. It's called The Missionary and it was co-written by William Carmichael and David Lambert, and put out by Bring It On! Communications andDeep River Books. This is unlike any missionary- themed novel you've read before, and is proof that even those "called by God' can lose their way... 

Yesterday, David Eller was an American Missionary in Caracas, Venezuela. Today, he's an international fugitive.

David and his wife Christie rescue impoverished children in the slums of Venezuela. But for David, that's not enough. The supply of homeless children is endless because of the corrupt policies of the Venezuelan government.

In a rare moment of anger, David lashes out publicly against the government, unaware of the chain reaction that will soon follow.

When the CIA offers David a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play a key role in a "bloodless" coup, he decides to go for it. But little by little, he falls into an unimaginable web of deceit that ends in a desperate, life-or-death gamble to flee the country with his wife and son, with all the resources of a corrupt dictatorship at their heels.

Taut and gripping. You’ll be glad you made the investment.
Jerry B. Jenkins, New York Times national bestselling author, including the 65,000,000-selling Left Behind series

David Lambert is a master of words—The Missionary is further proof.
Karen Kingsbury, New York Times-bestselling author of the Above the Line series

The Missionary is a roller-coaster read that will keep your adrenaline rushing!
Terri Blackstock, author of Double Minds and Last Light

This was an intense read and at times, left me breathless. Like one of my fellow Mama Buzz reviewers said, I could very well see this being made into a movie. It's full of action and interesting characters. It only takes a couple pages to be sucked into the ride that is The Missionary. With danger, politics, religion, and charity all in one book, you are bound to find something that pulls you into this story.

While I was surprised at the sometimes foolish choices the main character, David, made, I was at the same time inspired by him and his wife's sacrifice for the impoverished children they helped rescue. The authors did an excellent job of describing every scene in detail, using just enough to make you feel like you were there, but not too much to bore you. With a story set in an exotic and tropical country, the scenes were vivid and I instantly felt drawn in.

The book jumps around a bit from character to character, but it's not too difficult to keep up with what's going on. It's Christian fiction at it's best! Snag your own copy of The Missionary on Amazon for about $5. Find out more online at
