Sink your teeth into Waking Lazarus

T.L.Hines first novel, Waking Lazarus, is what a whole lot of people have been clamoring for in Christian Fiction.

Edgy is the mildest adjective to describe this compelling read. Not only did I snarf it down, but my non-book reading husband glommed onto it. Fortunately, he worked late the next night, and left the book at home so I curled up in my bedroom and finished Waking Lazarus.

He doesn't read as fast as I do and I've gone to sleep the past two nights with a bedside light shining in my eyes.

This read is not easy on the emotions. The squeamish may want to avoid it. Nor is it a book that contains a sermon in every chapter. My hubby voiced a few concerns over the evil presence in the book, and wondered aloud if he wanted to keep reading. But the story has him hooked, and the evil, like all evil, ultimately answers to God.

Waking Lazarus is an extremely well-written look into a fascinating character and a unique story line.

As Jude settles into his new life, he suddenly finds himself in the middle of trouble once again. …

Tony Hines has hit the ground running with WAKING LAZARUS. If you like page-turning thrillers, then get this book. I plunged into this story with the first sentence, "The first time Jude Allman died, he was eight years old."     This story is well-constructed and the characters come to life in this title. It's a clean, thoughtful well-told story and a departure for this publisher (Bethany House) since there is no overt spiritual theme (an implied spiritual theme is there but …

One of the last "recreational reads" I had on my shelf was the debut novel by T. L Hines titled Waking Lazarus. I heard about it during the writing process, and quickly put myself on the hold list at the library. It was well worth the wait...    Jude Allman has lived a number of lives... literally. He's died three times and come back to life after all efforts to resuscitate him were abandoned. You do that often enough, and you become quite a celebrity. But Allman didn't want …
