Lost Mission by Athol Dickson

Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy Blog Tour

I don't know about you, but this sounds great. There is an Arizona link that I am thrilled about, of course. And the spanish connection seems fresh. Take a look for yourself.

I hear there is great debate and lots of conversation about Lost Mission.

Lots of hot conversation out there, be sure to take the tour!

Lost Mission 2009 Howard Books (Simon & Schuster)

In short:

A billionaire

driven mad by grief.

A pastor

in love with the wrong woman.

An illegal immigrant
desperate to feed his family
Only Lupe de la Garza can

save them from the ancient
evil lurking in a lost mission’s
ruins, but it will take an act of

faith beyond all human power.

An epic suspense story spanning two centuries and brimming with magical realism.

Lupe de la Garza, a simple shopkeeper in a mountain village in Mexico, believes God wants her to go to
America to preach the gospel. She is guided on her quest by her people’s greatest treasure: an altarpiece
painted by the eighteenth century Franciscan friar who founded her village after fleeing the mysterious
destruction of his California mission outpost. When Lupe is distracted by desire for a young minister who rescues her from certain death in the Arizona desert, and when her preaching in a southern California beach town inspires only apathy and laughter, she begins to lose faith in her quest. Then the slumbering evil that destroyed the friar’s Franciscan mission rises up again after two hundred years, and Lupe once more looks to the altarpiece for guidance, only to find the true purpose of her quest in the midst of her single greatest fear.
