Description

In a world of secrets, where evil has reigned for over a hundred years, the power of an ancient covenant will change the life of one man forever. As a struggling young attorney fresh out of law school, Renny Jacobson pines for the day he can afford the luxuries of the partners in his Charlotte firm. With news of his father's death and a secret inheritance, Renny's life will surely change forever. But the clandestine society that provides the inheritance soon threatens to change him in more ways than one. Renny's life, and the life of the woman he loves, depend on supernatural deliverance from the curse of The List.

Read a long time ago. Some interesting twists.

It's ironic that in reading Robert Whitlow's novels to date, the last one I'd get to read would be his first novel. I have to say I've enjoyed all of his novels, each for both the same and different reasons. And while reading his books, you'd think I'd be able to say--oh yes, this was written first

and this one written more recently, I honestly couldn't tell which was first, middle or last written except by the date on the copyright page. Whitlow is just that good--and the List is just a great novel.
The novel is like a combination of the legal chase thriller that was the Firm or the Pelican Brief with the spiritual warfare made real as done by Frank Peretti. And the good news is--Whitlow puts distills both into a form that is imminently readable and thoroughly enjoyable. The List is a book that once I started reading, I found it virtually impossible to put down. I cared about what happened to the characters of Renny and Jo, seeeing where the journey took them. I enjoyed their budding romance--seeing it in the wonders and pitfalls of an emerging relationship. I also liked hearing about the list and the lengths taken to keep it secret and how Renny learns to signing his name to something can have serious consequences. Hearing the spirtitual struggle of Renny and the battle waged for his soul is compelling and outstanding reading. The novel never lags and always keeps you intereted. Whitlow has done a superlative job with all of his books and the only thing that disappoints me is now I've read all of his books that are currently published and must wait for the wonder of discovering his worlds in a new novel.

If you're looking for strong, intelligent contemporary Christian fiction, look no farther. Even if you're just looking for a page-turning, moving and enjoyable novel, you can't go wrong here. The List is another great entry from great author. I can't recommend this book or any of Whitlow's other novels enough.

If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would. This book is amazing! I read it 21 years ago and just finished it again. Wow! My emotions were on a roller coaster throughout the book and the epilogue gave me chills.

This is a story about the power of evil and the ultimate power of Jesus Christ

who came to overcome evil. It’s definitely a Christian novel and full of Scripture and prayer. It is one of the most powerful novels I’ve read on the power evil has over us and how Jesus overcomes that power with a power more than anything we can ever imagine.

I encourage everyone to read this novel. You won’t regret it.
