The List

    As a struggling young attorney fresh out of law school, Renny Jacobson pines for the day he can afford the luxuries of the partners in his Charlotte firm. With news of his father’s death and a secret inheritance, Renny’s life will surely change forever. But the clandestine society that provides the inheritance soon threatens to change him in more ways than one.

    Renny’s life, and the life of the woman he loves, depend on supernatural deliverance from the curse of The List.

    This book is both an engaging story of the development of a relationship, the spiritual journey of a modern soul, and a textbook on spiritual warfare. As a jaded, 20th century Christian who had almost despaired of seeing finely crafted fiction portraying authentic Christian themes, I was absolutely impressed by this book. The intrigue and sheer creativity of the plot, the well-developed characters, and the wisdom and depth of the spiritual aspects affecting the plot and characters are all outstanding. I can only hope for more books from Whitlow and a new breed of Christian writer to come from this good seed! A great read with lots to ponder.Reader

    This book is one of the best works of fiction I have read in a long time. Once I began to read it, I was unable to stop until I finished the book. The plot of the book was both original and very believable. My mind continually dwelt on the contents of this book long after reading it. Even today, my wife and I will from time to time come across something that reminds us of The List and we start talking about it all over again. Authors come and go but based on his first book, Mr. Whitlow should be around for a long time.Reader

      Read the jacket and seemed like my kind of book, and I actually enjoyed it until the Christianity card was played. I put up with that for a while but it came on in heavier and heavier doses and eventually I had to put it down half way through since that sort of reading is best left to those who want that in a book. The book category or theme should have been in the jacket introduction I think. I am going to leave a note with it when I return it to the local library suggesting it be tagged as a Christian-based thriller. I did skip to the end and read the last chapter out of curiosity and the “happening” in heaven (I assume that’s where it all took place) was too much for me and I’m glad I put it down. The book had a lot of potential on its own merits but the Christianity attack was totally offside for me and to be honest, a bit sneaky. Hope nobody takes offence to this but I’d prefer missionaries on my doorstep to this approach.

    7. My goal here then is to clarify the uselessness of metaphysics, and then transition from empiricism (as a counter to moral rationalism), and move more directly
      into skepticism. The survival of the soul through the change
      called death is on the verge of being openly acknowledged by scientists and scholars
      of academic circles. There is a wonderful science fiction story ‘
      a John Collier story ‘ that brings this idea home.

      I just finished re-reading “The List”. The last chapter contained such spiritual insight that I underlined, starred and folded down corners of many pages! Thank you, Mr.Whitlow, for writing this book! It is now 3:30 am, I woke up about 1:00 and began reading. I was so close to the end of Renny’s story that I wasn’t even sleepy and had to stay awake to finish it! I’m going to take a nap and then read again that chapter and the epilogue. One thing in particular spoke to me: that I need to praise God for my son’s to come back wholeheartedly to Jesus.

    10. I have a best friend who likes your book and is reading it right this instant.She is close to being done with it.It is a really good book.

    11. I think she is the most kindest person I have ever met in my entire life.She has been so nice to me and i think that she is kind and nice on the inside.

    12. She can be nice to people even when they are mean to her and I think that she got that from you book.

      Sincerlly,Jordan Warbinton

      Just happened upon the movie. And just today our Sunday school teacher talked about the power of prayer. The struggle with evil is real. Wonderful movie and I’m sorry “empiricists” don’t get it. There is more to life than science and many, many scientists know this.
