The Sacrifice is a masterpiece of suspense, mystery and romance. Every detail of this lawyer’s story is perfection. Mr. Whitlow shows that no one is beyond reach. Even the most down-and-out hope for second chances and some are willing to give the ultimate sacrifice to give them their second chance. If you like Grisham, you’ll love Whitlow.
Attorney Scott Ellis is defending Lester Garrison, a 16-year-old accused of opening gunfire on a Sunday afternoon church gathering.
At the same time, Scott’s volunteer work at the local high school brings him into contact with Kay Wilson, and English teacher and former girlfriend. Unknown to either of them, Catawba High School is not just a place of learning–it’s a battleground for and age-old struggle between good and evil. On one side are praying students and a simple janitor with an extraordinary faith. On the other side is a deeply troubled young man intent on mass destruction.
Caught in the middle, Scott and Kay learn that lasting victory will require the ultimate sacrifice.

Robert Whitlow takes the reader through a meaningful spiritual journey underscored by the power of prayer from seemingly insignificant people. Through the prayer experience of a school janitor and students in a high school we see the masterful work of the Holy Spirit, and readers experience how prayer can change the course of people’s lives and thwart evil. This book goes to the heart of the school violence problem in America and in the world at large and reveals the true solution to a problem that could destroy the fabric of the educational system in this country.Reader
The writing is fluid, the story is captivating and the ending is gripping. I think “The Sacrifice” should be required reading for every pastor, teacher, parent, grandparent and teen. The book kept my attention and I could not put it down, reading it in one sitting. I intend to read it again and again.Reader
