After nearly losing his life to an assassin, Stephen LaPointe resigned from his pastorate as a Congregational minister. He made this radical decision as the result of a crisis of truth. This decision had many immediate ramifications for his vocation, his career, and most significantly for his marriage and family. Now, a year later, no one knows where he is. He has disappeared. Out of love, as well as remorse, several people - an old friend, his estranged wife, and a potential enemy - set out separately to find him. This is a story of conversion of heart, of mind, and of love.

Absolutely brilliant! As a life-long Catholic, I've learned a lot from this superbly written book.

Glad to see this one on Audible!

What made the experience of listening to Pillar & Bulwark the most enjoyable?

The story was very good. A lot of disparate threads all come together in the end.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Kevin O'Brien?

Maybe. At first I thought "This is the worst narrator EVER." As I got used to him the experience improved. I don't think he was the best choice for this book, but it didn't ruin it for me either.

Who was the most memorable character of Pillar & Bulwark and why?

Rafe. Because he grew so much during the course of events.

Any additional comments?

I am very familiar with Marcus Grodi from his radio and television programs. I read the first book in this sequence, "How Firm a Foundation" and liked it, so I was glad to see they are now available in audio format.

Follow-up to How Firm a Foundation

Marcus Grodi made us hanker for this follow-up with the fascinating tale of Rev Stephen LePointe in HFAF regarding the agonies that come with the thought of converting. Personally I would have preferred Marcus to be the reader - as in HFAF - but the chosen reader does very well.
