THE SANCTUARY is the gripping story of vigilante priest, Danny Hansen, who is now serving a fifty year prison term in California for the murder of two abusive men. Filled with remorse, Danny is determined to live out his days by a code of non-violence and maneuvers deftly within a ruthless prison system.

But when Renee Gilmore, the woman he loves, receives a box containing a bloody finger and draconian demands from a mysterious enemy on the outside, Danny must find a way to escape.

They are both drawn into a terrifying game of life and death. If Renee fails, the priest will die; if Danny fails, Renee will die. And the body count will not stop at two.

THE SANCTUARY is Ted Dekker at his best, a powerful thriller that relentlessly plumbs the depths of punishment and rehabilitation, both in a flawed corrections system and in the human heart.

Outstanding read- great vacation book & hard to put down.

I read it more because I had read the previous book. Otherwise, on its own, I found it quite slow and too full of the philosophical arguments that Dekker is known for. He seems to struggle with finding the right balance between an actual thriller and a long-winded essay on his moral opinions

Riveting and intense sequel to The Priest's Graveyard.
