But the Christian community reacts cruelly- even to his innocent abandoned family.

Publishers Description
"Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples," Jesus said (John 13:35, NLT). Why then are Christians noted for their hateful judgment of each other? Brotherhood of Betrayal illustrates the ugliness of the betrayal syndrome that festers inside the Christian church. Respected missionary pastor Clay McCain leaves his family and growing church in Sweden for a beautiful, wealthy woman. But the Christian community reacts cruelly - even to his innocent abandoned family...

A Family’s Nightmare...

Clay McCain, a high-profile American pastor serving in Stockholm, Sweden, mysteriously disappears. Who can his wife, Rachel, and her three young children turn to for help? Her Swedish friends? Her home church in the United States? Her mission board? Her relatives?

Rachel’s eventual outreach of trust, alongside a shocking discovery, sets off an unexpected avalanche of betrayal that turns her world, her family, and her faith upside down.

This poignant sequel to the bestselling Wisdom Hunter and Jordan’s Crossing dramatically illustrates the hideousness of the betrayal syndrome that is sweeping through the body of Christ—assaulting and devastating families, friends, and churches.

This is a story that touches us all. It may even be your story.
For twenty years, Randall Arthur was a missionary pastor in Europe. With his wife, Sherri, he founded and organized churches in Oslo, Munich, and Berlin. He has lived in Georgia since 1998, recruiting, training, and leading short-term mission teams that assist churches in Western Europe.

Should cause a landslide of needed writing...since so many people suffer  Feb 2, 2007
Arthur said that he wrote these books as a response to his pain. It is evident throughout. I have lived some of these very experiences and I could not believe how accurately he described what it was like, for instance, to find out that your spouse was unfaithful. He described how the wife felt, the physical sickening reactions to what changes your life forever, and to what you never wanted to or expected to face.

He unashamedly portrays the complete inability of many whose lives remain "untainted" to have any understanding as to how to relate to those who are damaged by the sin of others. I have also been excommunicated from a church, and this part of the story, though to the "untainted" would seem unbelievable, I know it is believable, and was thankful to have it put into print. Indeed, such an "untainted" woman once told me that I was defiling others by talking about the excommunication, (spiritual abuse), and that she didn't need (want) to know what was wrong in my marriage, (abuse).

My 15-year-old read this book while I went through a divorce from his dad. It facilitated his needed grieving, though his words weren't all there at age 15, his weeping and grief were very real as he identified with a main character in an incredible scene near the end. I know that my son's writing was improved as a result of reading Arthur.

I meet people who have been through similar experiences as are found in this book and I pass the book on. It is such a gift. Thank you, Mr. Arthur.
Edgy Christian Fiction  Aug 17, 2005
Randall Arthur is a gifted writer, exposing some of the ways Christians let each other down, or "shoot their wounded", as someone has said. This book is gripping. I couldn't put it down.
Living Behind Masks  Jul 7, 2005
C. S. Lewis once wrote, "Part of every misery is, so to speak, the misery's shadow or reflection: the fact that you don't merely suffer but have to keep on thinking about the fact that you suffer." Randall Arthur masterfully exposes the grief, doubt, and utter loneliness that accompanies life's unexpected tragedies. His skillful writing immerses the reader in each character's psychological struggles. Though the details of the story may be unique, every reader will connect personally with the spiritual warfare waged in the hearts and minds of Arthur's characters. Even amidst the greatest devastation, however, hope remains fervent; all things can be made new.

I particularly grieve for the reviewer below who fails to see the genuine grace, mercy and love offered by Christ, who came not for the righteous, but for sinners! No, Grace does not condone sinful behavior, but it is Grace that welcomes us again into the arms of our Father. And remember, no one has perfectly resisted temptation! To ignore the indubitable struggles in every Christian's life is to ignore the great love story of the Bible itself. It was the brother of the Prodigal Son who failed to understand the love of the Father!

Thank you Mr. Arthur for your insightful novel. I pray many will find inspiration and hope within its pages.

A Good read  Jun 20, 2005
I was blown away when I read "Wisdom Hunter" so I had high expectations for this book. This book is very disturbing and shocking. I definitely think that Christian churches do have a problem with "shooting their wounded" rather than coming along side of them.

Overall, I don't think this book is anywhere near as good as Wisdom Hunter. Still, if you are looking for a quick read that will make you think, this would be a book for you.

Brotherhood of Betrayal and Betrayal Identical  May 30, 2005
This book is well written for Christian Fiction. However, imagine my surprise when I ordered Betrayal and Brotherhood of Betrayal, shown as two seperate books by the same author. The only differece I found was in the Acknowledgments page. On this page in Brotherhood of Betrayal, Heartfelt thanks goes to MULTNOMAH Publishers (including Rod Morris, senior editor).
On this page in Betrayal, Heartfelt thanks goes to Word Publishing company. I purchased both books thinking that one was a sequel...not so..the words are identical. I felt this was misleading and dishonest, I see no reason for this fact.
The next time I will research more fully before making a purchase!
