"My favorite part kept changing as I read. This book will reinvigorate your American pride." --JB, Little Elm, TX
"I can't even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed When Evil Prospers. The writing was succinct and flowed from one story line to the other effortlessly. Although it is a work of fiction, it is certainly not far fetched to believe that one day our great country could face a situation with similar ramifications. We can only hope that if this were to occur, the Mark Daltrys and Ed Hoods of America would be willing to stand up and do what is right. On the other hand, we should all pray that it doesn't take a bombing in Arlington, or anywhere else in America, to spurn Americans into standing up for what our forefathers envisioned America to be.
The reasons that Mark Daltry and Ed Hood rationalized their actions, not only made me proud to be an American but it also made me realize that if you ever decided to run for office, I would certainly be willing to stand beside you and provide you with any support that would be needed.
I am almost positive that somewhere the ghosts of Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, and many other great men who laid the foundation for America are sitting somewhere with a smug grin on their faces as their spirit of hope is renewed because When Evil Prospers may just be the necessary tool to help Americans understand what this great country was meant to be."

I have just finished reading your book. I usually read just for relaxing and always keep a book by my side. This is the most powerful book that I've read I do believe!!! You have captured some of my own random thoughts about what is going on in this nation! You have made me stop and really think about what is happening. Makes me angry, sad, afraid of what is going to take place if something isn't done soon. The last few years I have been to the point of not wanting to go vote because it doesn't seem to matter to the ones elected as to what THE PEOPLE want. Your book give me hope that maybe there more out there that care. I know that there are some Christian politicians but seem to keep it to themselves for fear of not getting re-elected. This book needs to be required reading for all. Thank you for such insight and I am sharing this book with others. I have encouraged friends to purchase a copy and am already loaning it out.
