Joel smiled at the thought that he was becoming an important member of the Blades. Tonight he was the trusted lookout while others took anything of value from the run-down store. This is only the beginning, he thought. Heaven has its hands full looking after Joel Somers. Fifteen and a member of the Blades, a dangerous street gang, Joel considers the other gang members his only true family, even when they treat him like dirt. On the run after the Blades' failed attempt to rob a video store, Joel seeks refuge at a Christian youth conference. There, after hearing a speaker with a story strikingly similar to his own, he gives his life to Christ. So begins a life-changing journey in which Joel experiences the angst of sudden homelessness, the deepening joy of Christian friendships, increasingly dangerous clashes with former gang members, and the ambivalent return of his once-criminal dad. In Double-Edged Blade, readers are given a unique glimpse of the unseen battle between good and evil. God himself and Abner, an angel assigned to protect Joel, discretely nurture his newfound faith while combating human and spiritual antagonists bent on Joel's destruction. But does Joel have enough faith to get him through the deadliest encounter of his life?
