Paperback | 331 pages | A novel Ray Comfort (with Anna Jackson) | Take a sneak peek inside.
Jake Forster allows bitterness to consume him as he watches the life of his father drain out of a bullet hole. His mother’s continued faith in the God who allowed this, is salt in an open wound. And the situation only worsens when he discovers that his father was killed over gold. Meanwhile, Catrina Salterson, a struggling saloon girl, is about to get a second chance on life.
Jake’s Fortune will sweep you up into these intertwining lives as it explores the reconciliation of the problem of evil with a loving God, as well as the difference between religiosity and being genuinely reborn.
“”I downloaded this book on my Kindle and didn’t know what to expect. I’ve read almost all of Ray Comfort’s books, but his books are all nonfiction. I wasn’t sure how good his fiction would be. After reading, I have to say–it was awesome. I’m inclined to say one of the best books I’ve ever read. Right up there with Frank Peretti and his Darkness books. As I read, the pages carried me away into the old west. It was descriptive, informative, funny. After I read it I started reading to my little brother, and I”m going to pass it around. Whatever dirty comments atheists could muster up against this book, the book is still great. Heck, an honest atheist will tell you: if there was no gospel message, the book’s story would still be awesome.”” Allen Diaz
“I began reading [Jake’s Fortune] last night and found it extremely difficult to put down. After reading through the first 200 pages, I reluctantly put it down only because it was after 1 am and I needed to sleep. First thing I did this morning was grab your book because I HAD to know how it ended! What a wonderful work. Your story kept me completely interested in each character. The different story lines happening at the same time really kept my interest and kept the book moving. There were no ‘slow’ or boring spots in it at all. I laughed out loud a few times. Other times I choked back a few tears. I really loved it!. It was such a joy to read. It was exciting and held my interest from the first chapter to the very end. It’s an exciting book that people need to read and pass around to friends.” Joe Marotta (CA).
