It is an afternoon during a rainstorm when Peter Johnson, a beggar, is desperately trying to procure a ticket to gospel preacher Paul Simons’ show at the Olympic Stadium that same evening. For Peter Johnson, life seemed to dovetail to that moment – he has a gut feeling that joining the miracle crusade will turn his life around. In Eben L. Le Roux’s A Silence That Kills, he becomes “the hobo who hijacked the miracle event” by a strange twist of circumstances.

A book about a seemingly random set of events and the web that brings them together to a central occasion which becomes the thread which starts to make clear God’s reason behind the randomness, A Silence That Kills starts with the beggar’s story. He is a former principal whose family and professional life started falling apart almost at the same time, and he has been trying to make sense of it, trying to make the impossible happen, to recover from the mortal blow and rebuild his life.

It is on that fateful day when he meets Michael Atkinson, a man shrouded by a tragic accident in which he lost his twin daughters. Johnson becomes instrumental in healing the Atkinson family’s pain and influenced them in putting up a concerted effort to save a small town called Bolton from death of the kind in which its people abandon it when all hope for a decent living in it is gone. Le Roux’s story rings true to God’s truth, an inspiring work of the Christian art which moves with Peter Johnson out of the doldrums of bad destiny back into the redemptive power of faith and how it motivates people to create redemption for themselves after the Holy Spirit enlightens them in life-changing moments.
