Seeking The Lost
Circumvent by S.K. Derban is a contemporary Christian suspense that will intrigue you and keep you guessing.
The characters are well drawn and realistic. The setting is exotic in Hawaii moving to Lyon in France. With comprehensive descriptions we can view the scenes in our mind’s eye.
We witness that even when a character can remember very little, they can still remember that they love God. This highlights the importance to really know God, so that even if all else fails, we will remember Him. We are reminded that God has our name engraved on His hands. He will never forget us. We see this symbolised in the novel as a bracelet is engraved with a name.
A name change signifies a change in circumstances.
There is the theme of trust. God can always be trusted. The evil one seeks to deceive us as he may even be disguised as goodness.
True love means leaving home to search for the one who is lost. Likewise Jesus will leave the ninety nine to search for the one.
Circumvent was an engaging read. I think it would translate well into a movie… any producers please take note.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
