Begotten ~ Review with Giveaway


Begotten JustRead Blog + Review Tour

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for
Begotten by Lisa T. Bergren, 
hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

The Gifted #1
By Lisa T. Bergren

A forbidden scripture long believed destroyed has been hidden for hundreds of years. The illuminations reveal something that those who have now come together must figure out - a gathering of the Gifted. 

The Gifted are to make known God's great love for all people. Known through the gifts that each has been given. "The power of Christ within."  And they have much to fear as what they do is not ordained by the Church and those in power fear that change will be a threat to the power they wield.

Are the Gifted truly of God or are they a threat to the Church? Soon the Gifted find themselves in a battle - a battle of the spiritual and their very lives are in danger as they prove to be a threat to Lord of Darkness and those who lust after the empty promises of power and wealth.

Begotten is the first book in The Gifted series and it most definitely leaves the reader wanting to know what comes next. Those who fans of the work of Frank Peretti, James Rubart, Ted Dekker, and Tosca Lee should enjoy reading Begotten. This book is set in the Middle Ages in the general vicinity of Rome and is an era and place I have not read too many books in. Altogether I would say this was a good read and I'd recommend it.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I offer my honest opinion. All thoughts expressed are my own.

The letter speaks of men and women—the Gifted—with profound spiritual gifts that will strike fear in the heart of a Church dedicated to maintaining power. Now the letter has surfaced and the Gifted are gathering. But so are their enemies…
