Review by: Deborah Atkinson on Jan. 27, 2017 :
One of the best LDS (Mormon) fiction books I've ever read. Couldn't put it down until I finished. Sometimes it struck a little too close to home because we've all had those times when we are unfairly judged and ostracized. I love the progression of the plot, and I didn't really see the ending coming. I would love to see this as a movie!

My husband and I both read this book and loved it. It keeps your attn and you realize how simple this would be if all Christians would do as is portrayed in this book. The world needs good people to do more service for each other.

Could not wait to find time each day to read this book. loved how the story lines of the different characters wove seemlessly together. I could feel the struggles and heartaches of the characters and the resolutions were heartwarming. very uplifting, satisfying read. I want more!

Review by: Charissa Stastny on Oct. 06, 2012 :
I was slow to pick this up because I thought it might be one of those annoying preaching stories. Not so! When I finally started reading Tongue of Fire, I was pulled into John Peterson and his family’s lives as they move to the town of Mayfield for a new start in life. The story centers around preachers and religion—as John is a Mormon who has been run out of three other towns in the last three years—but this was done in the context of such a masterful plot that the book didn’t come off preachy like many Christian novels. The subtle theme throughout the story is that true followers of Christ do good works. They don’t judge or make life miserable for others. This author has my allegiance for any future books he writes for taking such a hard subject and weaving an intense tale for someone of any faith.

This was a really enjoyable read, which is probably why I finished it in a weekend! Really gets you thinking about what it is to be a Christian.

Review by: D.J. Butler on Aug. 15, 2012 :
The new Italian teacher at the local high school, whose kid has walked on to the football team as a talented star, has accepted an invitation to preach at the local megachurch. What he hasn't told his new congregation, though, is that he's Mormon.

I had the privilege of reading this pre-publication, and loved it. McKnight writes for that segment of the Jack Weyland market that wants to consider serious questions about faith, revelation, the gospel, and Christian discipleship, without a sugar coating or a pre-packaged answer.
