Rebecca never felt safe as a child. In 1969, her father, Robert Nichols, moved to Sellerstown, North Carolina, to serve as a pastor. There he found a small community eager to welcome him - with one exception. Glaring at him from pew number seven was a man obsessed with controlling the church. Determined to get rid of anyone who stood in his way, he unleashed a plan of terror that was more devastating and violent than the Nichols family could have ever imagined. Refusing to be driven away by acts of intimidation, Rebecca's father stood his ground until one night when an armed man walked into the familys kitchen... and Rebecca's life was shattered.

If anyone had a reason to harbor hatred and seek personal revenge, it would be Rebecca. Yet The Devil in Pew Number Seven tells a different story. It is the amazing true saga of relentless persecution, one family's faith and courage in the face of it, and a daughter whose parents taught her the power of forgiveness.

    " An amazing story of a Christian spirit and forgiveness. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 C.c. Claybrook | 2/5/2014

    " Don't even know what to say about this. Horrifying true story. Would love to be able to discuss it with someone. Amazing, resilient author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine | 2/4/2014

    " I read this book in two days! A true story I had not heard about. If you like stories about people overcoming difficult situations you will enjoy this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Molly | 1/29/2014

    " The story is truly heartbreaking, but this novel was not my cup of tea. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheacatt | 1/27/2014

    " Sad outcome that may have been prevented if they had left the area. They at least should have protected their children from being terrorized. Very sad to read and disturbing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 1/26/2014

    " While the writing is not award-winning the story should be. Rebecca "Becky" Alonzo and her family are the subjects of a campaign of terrorism by a rich, powerful man in their small town. How they handle it and the work of God in their lives is an uplifting story. The epilogue is a sermon in itself worth hearing/reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jayna Santine | 1/23/2014

    " This book really brings a flood of emotions and sympathy for those who suffer great injustices in this world. Little children, godly people, and especially ministers and their families. I loved the interspersing of Gods word and how it applies to our everyday life. No one should miss reading this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jane | 1/20/2014

    " Interesting, true story, but their commitment to non-violence only lead to their ultimate demise. I found the relentless torture these poor Christian people were put through and the overall lack of real protection offered by local law enforcement to be a constant assault on my own sense of moral decency. I found the book very sad and disheartening. I guess I'm a sucker for a happy ending and I did not get that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vanessa | 1/18/2014

    " This was a sad story, but what is more remarkable is the story of forgiveness that underlines this tale. I can't wait to google the Dr. Phil episode this appeared on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betty Utley | 1/16/2014

    " Read with a sense of 'people don't do this to each other, right?' - wrong,so wrong. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 12/30/2013

    " Amazing true story of modern day persecution and forgiveness. A must read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen Pilcher | 10/21/2013

    " Very well written, every line interwoven with God's love and forgiveness. It is terrifying to read about the evil that can exist in the human heart. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 10/5/2013

    " Highly recommend!!! Amazing true story! "

    " Great message, scary story, okay writing. I thought I already knew what was going to happen, however, I was not prepared for the full story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 7/17/2013

    " I liked this book quite a bit. Well written story of forgiveness. It definitely has a twist or two, even as you think you know what's going to happen. It's a quick read but it stays with you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pamela Bundy | 5/30/2013

    " A True Story from 1969..worth the read! The power of forgiveness is seen in this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terri | 1/20/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chelsea | 12/1/2012

    " Amazing. Author spoke at my church last month. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sherry | 8/6/2012

    " I was looking forward to reading The Devil in Pew 7. But I was disappointed. I would not recommend this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jesse | 4/27/2012

    " I am glad that this book was written and so sorry the author experienced so much but was just not my thing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 2/27/2012

    " I'm still processing the gravity of the forgiveness illustrated in this book. As a believer, I am challenged by the level of forgiveness that Jesus calls us to, yet comforted in knowing that it is His power that enables us to achieve that which seems impossible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darlene Crochet | 12/22/2011

    " I am usually not much on true stories but I enjoyed this one, plus I am from the area where this took place, and even though I didn't know the people this was about I am sure I know people who do, so it made it even more interesting to me "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 11/30/2011

    " A good book to read especially during Lent. A lot of questions such as what would I do during reading of this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barb | 7/11/2011

    " I just finished reading The Devil in Pew Number Seven. It's the kind of book that echoes in your head and heart long after you put it down. It's both horrifying and redemptive. Filled with terror but ultimately with hope. It's definitely a life changing / must read book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patsy Hall | 6/20/2011

    " Interesting, but sad and even kind of a pathetic story that a man didn't take more initiative to protect his family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 5/25/2011

    " Not great writing, but gripping story. I especially was impressed with the theme of love and forgiveness throughout the whole book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marilyn | 5/18/2011

    " Interesting to see how such evil was eventually used for good through extreme grace and the power of forgiveness. Great book. "
