The Renaissance Songs series includes three books spanning the struggles and triumphs of members in a fictional church called Renaissance Church. Each book concentrates on a different character or set of characters, but many of the individuals will make appearances in all three books.
Ronnie Murphy was a cop, and the son of a cop. He grew up as a Christian in a Christian home, but he would come to realize that being a Christian doesn't exclude you from having problems... or enemies. As Ronnie grows up, so do his problems and temptations. He has hopes. But when life comes down hard on him, Ronnie has to decide: when is it time to give up hope?
After Jeremy's caretaker Mrs. Berry died, he soon came to accept the only father figure he would ever know in 'Ratchet', a biker who worked on motorcycles for a living. Jeremy followed Ratchet into a lifestyle that few ever come back from. As a child, Jeremy sang songs of praise. At this point, would he be able to sing a song of redemption?
There was a lot going on in the lives of the praise team members at Renaissance church; and worship pastor Mark was starting to find out how messy the lives of church people could be. As their stories intertwine and collide, will their passions and addictions destroy the team and the church, or will their faith bring them (and Mark) through the fire?
