Even the most faithful of people can reach a very dark hour in their life, when the light at the end of the tunnel is nowhere in sight and finding hope in the void can feel impossible. In Betrayed, Chip DeWitt’s character, Chad Gamble, a pastor, finds himself in just such a place. Gamble’s son has gone missing and is presumed dead, his wife has run off with a man who he had considered to be a ‘model parishioner.’ And Chad is unable to pray for a man who asks for ablution when it becomes clear that he has evil intentions. Fortunately, the faithful always have someone to turn to. When Gamble contemplates suicide, he calls on God for help. The Lord speaks to Gamble, telling him “Chad, I hurt like the Father that I am when you are in pain.” He reminds him, “I put my choicest servants through these fires,” and urges him, “I have much yet for you to do before I take you home.” Through these words, Chad is given a new perspective on life. “He would be, by God’s grace, a tinkerer of men’s souls, dedicated to finding out what they needed to come to full faith in Jesus Christ!” As it turns out, God needed Gamble’s full commitment: the would-be evil-doer has plans that only Chad has the ability to discern and thwart. Although Betrayed is certainly filled with plenty of action, the more important part is how seamlessly DeWitt interweaves scripture and important lessons. Readers are given a renewed sense of hope and faith in God. How many people have reached just such a dark point, only to find out that the Father had a bigger purpose for them? Through Gamble’s story, lessons that everyone would benefit from are brought to the fore.
