Claire Rivers races to the mailbox to receive a letter of acceptance to Harvard University while a heavenly battle rages. In this fast-paced, suspenseful novel, the ageless war for the hearts and minds of students on our college campuses is revealed. Conflict between unseen evil and angelic forces reflects their battle for victorious living amidst confused messages. When Claire and her roommate encounter attacks on their faith, a deeper mystery -- involving Harvard's Christian heritage, the pull of money, and a dark plan for societal corruption -- unfolds around them. Will they succumb to temptation and destruction? What has become of Harvard's founding motto: Veritas, Christo et Ecclesiae -- "Truth for Christ and the Church"? Can Claire -- with other praying students and their parents -- counteract the forces of humanism and relativism ... and what will it cost them to do so?
Marvelous story teller
This book grabbed my attention immediately and didn't let it go.
Shaunti deals with the challenges to the central character's beliefs with a straight forward style that doesn't judge. She never gets preachy but it is clear she has a Christian perspective.
I loved the way she allowed me to decide and didn't feel she had a hidden agenda in the telling of her tale.
I will read every book Shaunti writes.
