On The Edge
A Novel of Spiritual Warfare
Now Read By Over 25,000 Fans Of Christian Fiction
Excerpt From The Book On The Edge
As Richard sat with his head in his hands, he remembered what both Court and Bob had told him about spiritual warfare, about how he would be attacked, and about the solution. “If you rely on your own power, you will be easy prey,” Court had said. “But now you have the power of the Holy Spirit inside you to help you fight.”
“On The Edge is a rare jewel for fans of Frank Peretti. Not since This Present Darkness, have I come across such an in-depth work exposing the spiritual forces and invisible battle we all must face.” – John L. Owens
Richard Sullivan has a problem. His average American family is on the edge of ruin and they don’t even realize it. The Sullivans are struggling through everyday life with a dark power over them so strong that they cannot find their way — a power that is filling their minds with voices of greed, hate, pride and temptation. And now the very fabric of their lives is unraveling before their eyes. If only they would listen a little harder to the other voice trying to get through to them — the voice of hope, forgiveness and love — before it’s too late. 398 pages, Edge Press.
Praise for On The Edge – A Novel of Spiritual Warfare
I was fortunate enough to meet the author, F.Parker Hudson while at the Atlanta Airport. We ended up giving him a ride home from airport. He gave me a copy of this book. After reading this book, I was on my hands and knees, asking Jesus into my heart. This book was well-written, page turner book that gave a realistic approach to show how and why God is so important.
Like I said, this book is what brought me to my hands and knees, alone in my living room, crying and begging Jesus to enter my heart and in my life. I did the sinner’s prayer without even knowing how. This was back in 1995. I was living in sin with an abusive boyfriend in Georgia at the time. Within the next couple of weeks I had my car packed, in August, without a/c and with my cat and litter box, where I drove home to San Diego, CA (my parents home). I had to drive over 2000 miles. With all the areas I could have broken down, I ended up breaking down near San Antonio, TX, where my recent x’s aunt and uncle lived. I knew no one else in Texas so I called them for help. Not only did they get my car fixed, but they took me on the best camping trip I ever had.
Think about it; God has His protecting hand on me. Out of all those miles, He made sure there was a safe place for me to break-down. God used this book to save me. Thank you, F. Parker Hudson! I pray the Lord keeps using your books to help bring other lost souls to Our most loving Lord.
I have never read a better book on spiritual warfare than On The Edge. I have passed this book on to many people. Gave it to a guy in prison and he passed it around to other inmates. Amazing! Love you Parker Hudson for having the spiritual insight to write this book.
As I read the last chapter of On The Edge, I found my heart so full of the Holy Spirit that I thought I would explode. When I closed the book for the last time, I realized that I was crying….I cannot tell you how this book has changed my life and my husband’s.
I just finished On the Edge. Wow, where do I start! I liked the first part of the book which was dark and suspenseful. Then the rest of the book shows how so many lives affect so many people for good or for bad. This book makes you want to be the good. Its a hard book to put down. Life lessons and God’s answer to our trials and blunders are all in there. The ending was perfect. You won’t be disappointed. I’m still sitting here processing the whole book. It will make you think about your life and what kind of relationship you have with God. And this books will make you crave for more of God! Don’t miss this blessing! Read it!!!
Let’s take a break from the current political fracas and consider a subject which will be with us until long after the next election: Spiritual Warfare and the Family.
First, let me stipulate that I know there are some troubled families that are seriously dysfunctional with abuse or addiction, and/or where no father is present. Those situations are important to address, but they require skills and interventions which are beyond the scope of this post. My focus here is calling attention to the spiritual battles in which every family is engaged.
This month’s post is written primarily to believers. It will make little sense to others, and even believers don’t typically spend much time focused on Spiritual Warfare, which is exactly what Satan wants, and makes his destructive mission much easier.
Satan particularly hates believers because we will spend eternity where he began but can never return: in Heaven with God. He does everything he can to lie and to confuse, insuring that as few people as possible accept Christ’s free gift of salvation. Despite his lies, if someone nevertheless becomes a believer, Satan then does all he can to make that person feel ineffective in telling others.
