Intense, unpredictable, and instantly engaging, Secret Babylon is a story of redemption and faith as it has never been told before. Crafted with a forthrightness that rejects cynicism and predestiny, it brings us face-to-face with a provocative new understanding of the Christian experience.
By the time Wade answered the call to preach, he had taken his worldly ways to cold hearted extremes, shamelessly exploited migrant workers, hunted them for sport, married one woman and kept another while maintaining a deceptive facade of his true racial identity.
But Secret Babylon refuses to fit any mold of Christian literature. Though saved, Wade must fight to find his own way to confront the demons of the life he once lived, and discover what future, if any, he holds in the kingdom of God. It is this fight, told with charismatic energy and power, that is at the heart of Secret Babylon: the fight between God's will and one man's need to find a place on earth to call home, and conceive the reality that just as there is one God, there is also only one adversary.
Secret Babylon is an uncommonly genuine depiction of life corrupted and life redeemed, told by a bold and talented literary voice.
