Bartholomew Kallestad and Sara Morgan could not be more different.
Sara, a sixteen-year-old Christian, is poor and lives under the abusive rule of her obsessive‑compulsive father in a forgotten trailer park outside Chicago.
Kallestad, an eccentric, atheistic, billionaire, is consumed with proving he is more powerful than Jesus. He has spent years acquiring the Shroud of Turin and paying scientists to extract the DNA of Christ from its fibers so that he may clone Jesus and then kill Him.
Unfortunately for Sara, when her father, Fred, discovers Kallestad’s plot and tries to blackmail him, he changes Sara’s life forever.
Furious that Fred has dared to cross him, Kallestad brings Sara into his hateful plan as the recipient of the clone.
However, Kallestad’s twisted mind never anticipated Sara Morgan’s strength and faith.
Take an unforgettable journey with Sara as she discovers the power within.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and love, and of sound mind.
Power to touch lives as he touch lives.
Love to love as he loved.
Sound mind to discern as he discerned.
From the days of John the Baptist until now, the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. (Matthew 11:12) SARA encourages young people to stand firm in their faith and be world changers. Our first reaction, “Wow! Can't put it down.” It is intriguing, addicting, and a must read. All of these comments cannot do justice to this novel. Spiritually we believe it is not just another novel but a precursor to a rumbling powerful movement of sold-out youth worldwide to take the Kingdom of God by force and turn darkness into Light!

Reviews for Shroud
In our world of turmoil, it is refreshing to read R.H. Lewis’ SARA as it recognizes God's power within us. The journey through this incredible book taught me that with God's guidance, no matter how horrific life may be, we have the power to overcome. Lewis reminds us throughout this intensely suspenseful and gripping story that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
Lewis' use of biblical verse is woven seamlessly throughout this miraculous story. This is a must read for young adults and even for those of us who have read thousands of books during our lifetime. I anxiously await the sequel.

Power is found in faith. Many movies have been made depicting people and objects with healing power--The Song of Bernadette (1943), The Da Vinci Code (2006), even Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989). In SARA, RH Lewis takes a simple young woman in a desperate situation and shows how God can and will use the lowliest of souls to save the world. He, only He has the omniscience and omnipresence to turn what was meant for evil to the ultimate good. He did that the first time around with Jesus (He was crucified, yet rose three days later having conquered all sin). Now, in this novel, He does it through His DNA. He will come again…we just don’t know when. It is in the scriptures “as a thief in the night.” Lewis makes us believe it could be happening right now, as I write this. I believe.
Thank you for enlightening and empowering all those who read your works.
