Virtual Book Tour and Review: "More than Conquerors" Kathi Macias

I am pleased once again, to be part of a blog tour for Kathi Macias. Kathi has published her second book in the Extreme Devotion Series called More than Conquerors. It is a definite must read for any Christian or anyone wanting to read more about the Christian movement in Mexico.

More than Conquerors
Author: Kathi Macias
Publisher: New Hope Publishers
ISBN: 9781596692831
Genre: Christian, fiction

Synopsis (taken from Pump Up Your Book):

"With violent crime on the rise and the political climate changing throughout Mexico, the opportunity for open Christian witness is rapidly decreasing in many areas. Hector Rodriguez pastors a church on the outskirts of the once-peaceful and tourist-popular border town of Tijuana. He has also visited other small churches in the remote and not-so-Christian-friendly towns of Chiapas state, delivering Bibles and ministering to those in the most persecuted areas.

Hector’s mother accompanied him on one of those trips and stayed behind to teach reading—using the Bible as her primer—to a handful of Christian converts living among the Mayan population in San Juan Chamula, where superstition and paganism run rampant, and resentment of outsiders runs deep. In a reaction to that superstition and resentment, Hector’s mother pays a serious price for her unwanted presence—and Hector must then choose whether or not to continue his work in some of the most dangerous areas of Mexico."

My Thoughts:

The second book in the Extreme Devotion Series, "More than Conquerors" is an amazing book. It will transport you to Tijuana and San Juan Chamula, and make you realize how blessed you are to have freedom to worship in the manner you choose. This story is very realistic, heart warming, and at times heart-wrenching.

In this book, Kathi deals with the growing hostility of Mayans and others in Mexico. She is not shy with putting a realism. She includes not only the problem of Christians going into Mayan country, but she also deals with the trouble of the gangs and drugs in places like Tijuana.

Again, Kathi, has brought a beautiful story of faith, hope, love, forgiveness, and commitment to life. I love her writing style and her way with making these stories seem so real. Kathi has captured my attention, and I'm looking forward to "Red Ink" the next book in the series. I cannot praise this series enough!!
