  • How do ordinary people become terrorists? or become peacemakers?
  • How does the current Muslim-Christian conflict trace it roots to Abraham’s family?
  • Where can we go from here?

These questions will be answered in an entertaining and insightful page-turner…

Set in the context of a global clash of paradigms between an Indonesian terrorist’s mission and an American Congressman’s peacemaking effort, a poor Muslim-majority neighborhood in Indonesia holds the keys to who will win. Some in the neighborhood are making efforts to understand the roots of the Muslim-Christian divide and build new bridges across it, while others are ripe targets for terrorist recruiting. A church burning tragedy produces a new villain (a teenage boy) and two unlikely heroes (his ex-terrorist Muslim father and the neighborhood’s only Christian woman). When the boy becomes a suicide bomber in an assassination attempt on the Congressman, it’s up to the two unlikely heroes to save the day.

“Hatred, persecution, fear, terrorism — just daily life for millions around the world. This book takes us through it all to the other side, to the hope for peace. I highly recommend it for peace-lovers everywhere.”  Former U.S. Congressman and International Peacemaker Mark Siljander, author of A Deadly Misunderstanding

Someone Has To Die ably weaves narratives of individual lives of Muslims and Christians within the context of events that could be the leading story of tomorrow’s news or echoes of yesterdays. Love and light transcends religion in this novel, as do unforgiving hearts, regardless of religious – who use religion as a cover for their self-centered deeds. Someone Has To Die reminded me of something C.S. Lewis wrote “All day long we are, in some degree, helping each other to one or other destinations…There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, art, civilizations – these are mortal…”

I read this book during travel flights this week – the hours went fast. I wanted to dance in the most gracious Creators pleasure after I had read this novel.
