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.

Fast paced edge of your seat action. Great characters and lots of twists and turns. Couldn't put it down!

S What an eye opener about the American penal system. America is broken and people should be made aware of the terrible police state they live in. With the increased militarization of the police I can only assume that they will continue to build more jails and abuse the citizens of America that only a fascist police state can. Or will they just keep shooting and killing young men simply because they can. Very disturbing!

I was good up to the ending. Little far fetched as far as the fight went. To many guards to let happen what did.
