Listen ~ by Rene Gutteridge

Wow, wow, wow! I've just finished the book Listen by Rene Gutteridge. This is one of the scariest books I’ve ever read – not because it’s meant to be a horror novel (it’s not), but because it caused me to evaluate the conversations I have – especially the private ones. We are admonished often in the Bible that life and death are in the power of the tongue. This book has a powerful message contained within its endearing story. It shines the light on the damage that is cause by gossip and carelessly spoken words –even private ones. There are great life lessons here that everyone can benefit from. I highly recommend this book!

This book was provided to me for review by Tyndale House Publishers.

Nothing ever happens in the small town of Marlo . . . until the residents begin seeing their private conversations posted online for everyone to read. Then it’s neighbor against neighbor, friend against friend, as paranoia and violence escalate. The police scramble to identify the person responsible for the posts and pull the plug on the Website before it destroys the town. But what responsibility do the people of the town have for the words they say when they think no one is listening? Life and death are in the power of the tongue.
