Writers and authors Rebecca Nichols Alonzo and Bob DeMoss writes and then publishes on December 2010 The Devil in Pew Seven: A True Story and it is steadily becoming a best seller. The publisher is Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.
According to Wayne Drash,CNN, "People buy two or three copies (of the book) at a time. Churches use it in Sunday school. And in many homes, it sits beside the Bible, also known as 'The Book'...In these rural flatlands where faith is rooted like the tobacco fields all around, many had forgotten about the campaign of terror against a beloved preacher and his family more than 30 years ago. Then The Book hit the stands."
The saga takes place in Sellerstown, North Carolina in the mid and late 1970s.
Rebecca, co-author of this book, and her younger brother Daniel were only seven and three when they took their places at the supper table for the last time as a complete family.
A friend of the family busted into their home and shot dead their mother and gravely wounded their father.
In The Devil in Pew Number Seven, Rebecca details How a powerful and influential man in Sellerstown, Horry Watts, terrorized the family for years and is believed to have engineered the murder of her mother.
This is an incredible story of the darkness of hate and corruption but also of the luminosity of faith in God and the power of forgiveness.
