Godsent: The Road to Patmos
By: Kevin B. Gannon
About the Book
Ken Dervin and John Spencer grew up together in the same Pennsylvania neighborhood, and in the same church their fathers founded in 1955. Almost inseparable since birth, they ran together on the playground, then on the football field, with their destiny of one day running the church as Pastor and Vice-Pastor ostensibly set in stone. Not long after inheriting those positions, Kenneth’s faith in God and his church begin to waver when he notices his friend starts to change. John, who was once a devout, passionate, evangelical leader had shifted into a power-hungry preacher on the rise to national fame.
When the opportunity to travel to the sacred land of Ephesus, Turkey and possibly expand the church arises, Kenneth cannot help but feel as if his friend is flying too close to the sun. Conflicted by his own failing faith and his loyalty to his friend, Kenneth must decide how far he is willing to go and whether or not his friend is really leading him to the promised land or his spiritual demise.
