The Brotherhood

The Brotherhood

The Brotherhood
By Jerry Jenkins

About the book:
Boone Drake follows all the rules - as a cop, husband and father. But when everything in his personal life is destroyed, he buries himself in guilt. His faith is rocked when he questions why God would allow this to happen to him. When it appears that it can't get any worse, he's accused of police brutality and suddenly his career is at risk. The possibility of being promoted to the Organized Crime Division is slipping from his hands. His life is spiraling out of control. But while protecting the leader of a Chicago gang, Boone comes to realize that God can change the hardest heart...and forgive the worst of crimes.

My thoughts:

The Brotherhood is a gritty police thriller that ultimately asks "Why does God allow tragedy?"

Jerry Jenkins does not shy away from questions stemming from a man having a crisis of faith and searching for the meaning of his life all in the context of a fast paced story.

I listened to the audio version of this book and the narrator seemed strong and perfect for this story, very cop-like.
