He tried to leave the past behind, but it won’t leave him…

Ex-gang member Garrett Lovett is a new creature in Christ. At least, he’s trying to be. He’s got a wholesome routine, a place on the IronWorks football team, and a pretty woman he wants to know better. But when the old gang resurfaces with the ultimatum to re-up or face consequences, Garrett has tough decisions to make. These guys know how to get to him—his addictions, his fears. When things get life-threatening, Garrett must decide if this God he’s heard about is real or not.

And if so, can he rescue Garrett and those he loves before it’s too late?

SCARS is book 4 in the Spiritual Warfare series that is written by Linda K. Rodante. I have not read all of the books in the series. There are some characters that were introduced in previous books. I always love reading books that this author puts out. She handles tough topics that are faced in real life. She does it with God’s grace, forgiveness and HIS light shining through. 

Garrett used to be in a gang. He however has gotten out and found Christ. The church that he goes to helps ex-convicts and former gang members navigate their new found freedom in God. He has a life he loves leading. When one of his former gang buddies show up and threaten to bring him down if he does not get back in - what will Garrett do?

This book is a easy, quick read. It’s got a lot of action and suspense throughout. The author has tackled some tough topics (including premarital sex) but shows God’s grace and forgiveness throughout. The book is well written, the characters are realistic and well developed.
