In his recent New York Times essay "Has Fiction Lost Its Faith?" author Paul Elie writes: "Where has the novel of belief gone?" A.L. Shields's The Church Builder is the novel that Elie and many others have been waiting for.
In The Church Builder, A.L. Shields has written a complex thriller that entertains and enlightens. The Church Builder is the fast-paced story of a young attorney named Bethany Barclay, and the seething, underground religious war she is drawn into while searching for answers about her best friend's death. The Church Builder draws upon elements of the classic thriller that will be familiar to fans of Dan Brown and James Rollins-secret societies, hidden codes, deathbed whispers, unexpected treachery-to create a high-stakes game of cat and mouse that blazes through the American heartland. This is a world in which nothing is as it seems and where there is no safe place to hide.
