A military operation gone tragically wrong. An elite commando loses his forearm. The angel tattooed onto his arm is sliced in half. And the man acquires a new nickname.
Brother Half Angel is the leader of a secret new church military order, dedicated to helping Christians under attack around the world.
In this latest book from Martin Roth's Military Orders series of international thrillers, he is dispatched urgently to China, where an underground seminary is under siege from fanatical sword-wielding members of a local cult who still pay homage to the bloodthirsty extremists who tried to expel all foreigners from China in the nineteenth century.
But at the same time the seminary has its own internal divisions. The director, Uncle Ling, a hero of the underground Chinese church, holds secrets that he cannot reveal.
And now the tensions are threatening the marriage of idealistic young American missionaries Daniel and Jenny Westloke.
Relentless suspense is the hallmark of this gripping thriller.
But it is also a book that raises serious questions – how far can Christians go to defend themselves? When should they turn the other cheek? What happens when a Christian kills in self-defense? And should those who live by the sword really expect to die by the sword?
