The fictional story, Flash Point by Sally John is based on the Scripture verse Romans 8:1: “There is therefore no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”
The story of a firefighter, Gabe, and Terri, a Chicago paramedic. But this is not just any love story.
Terri willingly risks her life to save others. As a Chicago paramedic, she works round-the-clock shifts that are often filled with life-and-death moments. But when a flash point of circumstances suddenly changes her life, Terri must come face-to-face with the fragile self-confidence she displays to the world.
Along the way Terri grows unsure about her new romance with Gabe. She hasn’t been a Christian long, and now her identity lies shattered at her feet. Will she see that life is worth more than just moments of heroism–that she is an extraordinary woman created by God who knows her pain and who knows how to heal?
It isn’t necessarily the romance that tugs at your heart in this story. It is the all-too-common emotional relationship Terri has had with an unloving father and the unintentional pain inflicted by him. You will witness how she uses forgiveness as a weapon and the direct result. Will she find God’s love unconditional?
Even if you are not a “romance” kind of reader, this story is worth the effort. You can find it at the church library.
