Begotten is an edited, new edition of a novel previously released in 2006, The Begotten.
At the height of the Inquisition, a secret half a millennium old is about to be exposed—a lost letter believed to have been written by Saint Paul but never part of the Christian canon. The letter speaks of men and women—the Gifted—with profound spiritual gifts that will strike fear in the heart of a Church dedicated to maintaining power. Now the letter has surfaced and the Gifted are gathering. But so are their enemies…
He watched as his master was tied to a stake and a great fire was set. Tears he thought spent rose in his eyes, yet he refused to look away as the flames licked upward, as the heat made him retreat, step by step.
The bishop threw his master’s life’s work—the book, carefully wrapped in a burlap sack—into the fire at the priest’s feet. The burlap swiftly burned and curled, revealing the lambskin cover of the priceless book. It too began to burn.
The priest glanced over at the boy, a quiet question in his eyes.
The boy patted his shirt in response, reassuring his master, feeling the sacred pages next to his skin.
Go, child. Go! The boy shook his head in confusion; he could hear the priest, even though the old man’s parched lips moved not.
The boy glanced over at the bishop, his face and grand robe dancing eerily in the heat waves between them. The bishop’s eyes narrowed, and he beckoned to the boy.
Run! Run, child!
Looking at his master one last time, the boy turned and fled into the night.

Review: *Due to unforeseen life circumstances, I was unable to finish reading the full book. I was able to read the first chapter and just from that I would recommend this book. It grabs you from the beginning and makes you want to keep reading. I plan to read the book completely when my circumstances allow but if you want a good Christian suspense, then this is one to read.*
