Editorial Reviews

Review


"An insightful and provocative read for those who ve watched the rise and fall of real-life televangelists such as Jim Bakker, McQueen s novel gets emotional traction by making Clemens a sometimes sympathetic character. Readers explore the forces that shaped him as they travel back in time to relive his troubled childhood with his own preacher father and the early years of his faith-healing ministry." --Buffalo Daily News

"It's a compelling story that resonates with the experiences of many Christians across the world." --Shelly Bryant, author of "Under the Ash"

McQueen has an interesting manner in which he weaves his tale, his descriptions are full and leave the reader satisfied and wanting more by this author.

McQueen's novel is an excellent examination of the power, the faithful followers, and the reality of one individual who acts on behalf of God.

Between Lions & Lambs is about a young man whose life to him was nothing but torture starting at a very young age, and in all reality it was. I was absolutely stunned and drawn in all at the same time throughout this whole book, it was a tad bit slow at first, but once you get going it is an eye opening read. It made me take a look at what religion really is and how God actually felt about religion. And it definitely made me take a look at the fact that my faith belongs in God not in man.

Ezekiel Clemens becomes a self-professed evangelist and builds an enterprise and reputation on lies, booze and prostitutes, while alongside him his longtime friend and publicist Gerald Lambough tries to cover up for all of Ezekiel's transgressions while dealing with his own conscience and conflicted life.

I was captivated with McQueen's writing, as he tells a tale of two very conflicted men with demons who take a journey into hypocrisy, violence, redemption and the ride of a lifetime, literally. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a great novel that you can actually visualize being there as you read it. This is a novel that will suck you right into it and oh what a journey you will have, this is a must read. I am looking forward to his next book.

Between Lions & Lambs takes us behind the collapsing facade created by the world's most successful televangelist, weaving a compelling and provacative tale that shifts back and forth between past and present to paint a vivid picture of a complex and deeply conflicted man. McQueen invites us to explore the forces that shape and influence one's character, spiritual faith and ultimately, the road choosen in life by focusing on the roles played by family, faith, hypocrisy, violence, conformity and courage. Hard to put down!

Format: Paperback
Between Lions and Lambs offers profound insight to the inner workings of mere religion through rich storytelling and fascinating dialogue. More than just a fictional characterization of religious corruption, it is a riveting journey to redemption all while expoloring the fallacies of mere "religion". A well written book that demands attention regardless of religious background or interest. This is one of those rarities that bridges generations, religious or non religious affiliation and leaves one fully engaged in the state of humanity. I can't wait for more from this author!

Format: Paperback
I feel very bad that there is no way to give fractional points, as my rating for Between Lions and Lambs is a actually a 4.3.

First, when I read the first book of any author, established or not, the first thing I look for is mastery of language, and McQueen has that in boatloads. There were more than many occasions when I either 1) paused at the depth and beauty of a sentence or 2) paused to curse the author for writing a sentence I wish I had written myself. If you're a fan of pure, simply powerful language, buy this book.

As far as content, the fallen man of little faith seeking redemption is something near and dear to my heart, but despite what the back cover says, I'm not sure this book can be enjoyed by the irreligious. While the two main characters have the type of man-man brotherhood relationship that is not often explored in literature (a choice McQueen bravely makes and succeeds with), and while both of the men are fully fleshed and believable characters, God is, perhaps (un)ironically, at the core of every scene, and after awhile, seems to be in every paragraph and sentence so that He becomes the overbearing main character. That is not to say the author is preachy - on the contrary, for a book about a preacher and God, the author successfully stays away from preachiness - but unless you're someone who is religious, and perhaps someone who is questioning God and religion, I'm not sure the relationship-with-God thread of the story would appeal to you.

That being said, this is a beautiful book. It was a book I wanted to take my time with, and the dual narrations worked well. In many ways, this is a book of mystery, and while one of the story's "revelations" felt predictable, the others appeared to be surprising and inevitable at the same time. This is a stupendous beginning for this new author, and I look forward to reading his next book as soon as it comes out.
