From the back cover of the book:
The Youth For Peace Fresh Start Initiative gathers ten Muslim and ten Christian youth from ten nations around the world to learn new paths to peace. But the camp staff have some highly unorthodox teaching techniques. And when one by one the youth start disappearing, some of them wonder if the staff might not have an entirely different agenda. Those left behind must work together to solve the mystery before they also disappear. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to them, the entire world is watching…
Jim’s third novel of the Peace Trilogy confronts American prejudice head-on. Pursuing world peace today will require a generation committed to a deeper level of trust and cooperation than ever before.
Endorsements are beginning to come in! This one is from Michael J. Webb, author of the Giants in the Earth trilogy, The Oldest Enemy, & Infernal Gates
“Baton has crafted the kind of novel that makes you feel like you’ve had a ten course meal when you’ve finished reading it. Layers upon layers of truth fill in the craggy crevices peppered throughout our limited understanding of interactions between Christians and Muslims that are often created by ignorance and prejudice. Baton’s writing style sheds light into the dark places where few dare to tread. It’s clear he’s lived what he writes about, and that brings an element of authenticity to the plot and a depth to the characters that make you want to read late into the night to find out what is going to happen next.”
Johnny Enlow, founder of RISE, author of The Seven Mountain Renaissance: Vision and Strategy through 2050 and Rainbow God: The Seven Colors of Love adds this.
“This book carries an extremely important message for us today, particularly as it relates to our assignment on the mountain of religion.”
“…all I could do was wipe the tears from my face and say, ‘Wow!’” says Roger Bruner, author of The Devil and Pastor Gus.
And Carol A. Brown, author of Through the Wilderness, has this to say.
“A riveting, page-turning terrorism thriller, A Violent Light, by Jim Baton is everything he said it would be! Wow, I stayed up late reading to the very last page! This storyline could be ripped from current headlines…. I would definitely recommend this book to young people with a social conscience…or, old people with a social conscience! The quest for peace in a violent world is a worthy one. Bravo Jim! Keep writing. These are incredibly key issues for today that desperately need to be brought to the light.”
