    1. Most people recognize the name Pilate More than a name, he infamously washed his hands of Jesus crucifixion Truth be told, not a whole lot is known of him apart from this event But, his role in Jesus life made him famous, regardless In Wilderness Rising , we find that many highly influential people are talking about Pontius Pilate According to legend, Pilate penned thoughts, specifically about Jesus, onto a piece of stone Supposedly the Pilate Stone had been hidden for centuries Two powerful fac [...]

    4. This review is also posted on Book by Book.Though I haven t yet read the first Church Builder novel, the second one, Wilderness Rising, by A.L Shields still proved to be a gripping and engaging read, keeping my attention from start to finish I assume the plot picks up soon after the end of the previous novel, with Bethany Barclay on the run, and as she follows the clues left by her friend across international borders, the plot quickly fills with suspense and danger at every turn As I read, I won [...]


    5. Secret Societies and the search for an Ancient ArtifactIn the second book of the Church Builder series, Bethany Barkley is on the run from the FBI and other law enforcement agencies in the US With the help of Ray Fuentes, an ex CIA agent, she escapes to London where she tries to follow Annabelle s clues to discover the Pilate s Stone Annabelle, her best friend, is now dead, and Bethany is searching for the clues because the Wilderness, an atheistic organization that is trying to discredit the ch [...]


    6. First of all, I was a little surprised to read that this was being promoted as a sequel to The Church Builder, whereas the first book was billed as the start of a series To me, a series implies a three book minimum, but a sequel indicates that there are just two Secondly, I definitely recommending reading The Church Builder before you start on Wilderness Rising The action starts immediately, and there s little exposition.Bethany is in a race against time At first her sole motive is to save the l [...]


    7. I have one complaint about this book It came out too long after the book it follows It was a year and a half ago that I read and reviewed the first book, and I remembered that I liked it a lot, but could not remember much about it A lot of it came back as I read this one, but they should have released them closer together The idea of two secret organizations existing, one which does all it can to discredit Christians and Christianity and destroy them, and the other that does all it can to preser [...]


    8. I was provided a complimentary copy by BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.Wilderness Rising is the second book in this series, book one is The Church Builder.In book two we are following Bethany, a woman who has been framed for acts of terrorism as she is searching for an artifact called the Pilate Stone, which might not even be real On the way, Bethany requires the help of The Garden a secret group dedicated to saving the Church.I was somewhat at a disadvantage, as I had not rea [...]


    9. Oh, What a Wicked Web is Weaved Wilderness Rising is an action packed unpredictable thriller It picks up where the first book, The Church Builder, stopped with the main character, Bethany Barclay, finding herself in England She is attempting to piece together the mystery that has resulted in the death of her best friend, Annabelle It also catapulted her from her small town law practice to a worldwide run for her life while she tries to solve this mystery before she becomes the next victim Along [...]


    10. Wildness RisingThis is a classic story of good versus evil told in a most entertaining and yet thought provoking way It was an exciting read from start to finish This is the second installment in this series and this book picks up where the first left off I would encourage you to read both books in chronological order Bethany, the protagonist is still searching for answers while simultaneously trying to stay alive The plot is believable, the characters are plausible, the language is rich, and I [...]


    11. I m not sure the conclusion was satisfying And I have to admit, it took me a while to remember the details of the previous novel But it s an interesting read where not everything is spelled out in balck and white for you.
