Innocent Blood recounts the heart-rending stories of Cape rebels and republican soldiers executed by the British during the Anglo Boer War. These previously untold tales evoke vivid scenes of the brutality that accompanied complete lack of justice, while sketching the tragic details of the suffering and emotional devastation that were the real-life stories touched by these executions. Captivating as these stories are, they were researched extensively - the authors spent months travelling to the sites that witnessed the stories. They were then also condoned by two professors of history.
They watched as the car burnt. A smell of gasoline mingled with the throat-catching stench of melting rubber, almost masking the sickly sweet smell of roasting flesh. No one spoke. The time for recriminations and the appointment of blame would come. For now they were united by the need to cover up a crime and destroy the evidence. As DCI Fenwick investigates a powerful and predatory paedophile ring and Inspector Nightingale is left to deal with an ex-serviceman turned vigilante, they are both forced to ask themselves: when is a murderer not a murderer, and how far are they prepared to go to see justice done?
Not a book on social issues per se, nor a book on missions, Innocent Blood integrates the two and calls us to courageously challenge the powers of death with the gospel of life. It does this by exploring the striking relationships between the scandal of the gospel and the tragedy of abortion.
