I chose this book to read and review based on the title, and this book did not disappoint. The Devil in Pew Number Seven is a true life story. The terror and horror that one family went through as well as a story of true forgiveness, no matter what.
Rebecca Nichols Alonzo shares the unimaginable story that her family went through in The Devil in Pew Number Seven, and she shares a truly remarkable lesson in forgiveness.
When Rebecca was just a small child her family moved Sellerstown, North Carolina so that her father could be a Pastor. Most of the town gladly accepted the family, except for the man in pew number seven, Mr. Watts. The story that is told is one of hatred, by Mr. Watts, and love and forgiveness, by the Nichols family. As the family is threatened day after day, they continue to show love and forgiveness, and as the family is destroyed right before Rebecca's young eyes she continues to show love and forgiveness to those that have taken the ones she loves the most.
A true story of one families undeniable faith and the ability to show true forgiveness no matter what the price.
I really enjoyed the whole story and couldn't put it down. I don't know that I would ever be able to do what Rebecca did, as she truly shows the love of Jesus in her abililty to forgive those that took so much away from her.
