A teenage boy must choose between the lure of evil and the righteous path in Jay Allen’s new Christian young adult novel, “The Current and the Outcast” (published by CrossBooks).

Jack Allen is a typical 15-year-old boy who enjoys hanging out with his friends, listening to music and playing video games. His daily life is focused on trying to fit in. But Spaw, an ambitious and high-ranking demon, has other plans for Jack. Posing as a beautiful spirit named Rachel, Spaw uses Jack’s desire for acceptance to try to lure him to his destruction.

Rachel encourages Jack to experience worldly temptations, telling him it will help him progress spiritually. While his loved ones pray for him, Jack must decide whether to enjoy newfound popularity or turn away from evil and choose the righteous path, even if it means becoming an outcast.

Filled with supernatural action, “The Current and the Outcast” seeks to provide Christian encouragement that will appeal to fans of popular series like Twilight and Harry Potter while revealing how evil, spiritual forces use worldly things to lead people astray from Jesus.
