Endorsements and Book Reviews of The Ishbane Conspiracy
I thoroughly enjoyed The Ishbane Conspiracy. The authors did a great job, and the story gives so much food for thought. I wish this book was required reading for student and parents across our nation. — Francine Rivers, best-selling author of Redeeming Love
The Alcorns portray these characters with fresh insights and such clarity they seem like people I’ve met. What gives the Ishbane Conspiracy its intense intrigue is the way these writers manage to lift the veil and let us see what goes on behind the scenes in the spiritual realm. The conflict doubles, and so does the ultimate victory. A job well done by this talented father/daughter trio! — Robin Jones Gunn, best-selling author of the Christy Miller Series and the Glenbrooke Series
I loved The Ishbane Conspiracy, and I’d love to see it in the hands of every high school and college student in America! — Jim Bell, author of The Nephilim Seed
I just finished a book that I will now recommend to every teenager and their parent that I meet. If you fall into either of those categories I implore you to go directly to Amazon.com or CBD.com or your local bookstore and purchase, The Ishbane Conspiracy by Randy Alcorn and his daughters. Although it is a work of fiction, it is the most important parenting book I have ever read, specifically for teenagers. It is hard to describe, just please trust me on this. — From actress Lisa Whelchel’s website, lisawhelchel.com
Book Reviews of The Ishbane Conspiracy
An interesting followup to 'Lord Foulgrin's Letters,' this book focuses more on teenagers and the problems they face in this modern world rather than the adult focus the first book had. However, this is an excellent read for both teens and adults. Teens can learn how to face the temptations that are thrown into their faces every day, while adults can learn about teenagers and why they might behave the way they do. Just as easy to read as it's predecessor, it is written in a relaxed language, yet holds deeper truths. The characters are rich and full of life, and I found it to be engaging as I connected with each one on some level or another. This book is good for teens and adults, just as the previous one is, and I would recommend it to anybody who wants help fighting their spiritual battles.

Outstanding book that is similar to C. S. Lewis’ Screwtape Letters but set is in the modern times with situations that young people are likely to deal with in high school and college today. There are also adult characters—parents, youth leaders and pastors. It is applicable to readers of all ages. It helps to equip parents and youth workers as well as help older teens better understand spiritual warfare. It challenges us to become closer to the Lord, so we are able to withstand temptations and the fiery darts of the devil. A must read for all old and young! – R. H.
Any book can tell the story of four imperfect students. But this book is different.
Jillian may seem like a good Christian girl, but she’s struggling. Brittany may seem like just another of those pretty girls that got in with the wrong crowd, but she’s dissatisfied. Ian may seem content with his drinking, interest in witchcraft and girlfriends, but he’s afraid. And Rob may seem like a happy, moral guy, but he’s hiding something. Only God can help them. But this is Lord Foulgrin’s greatest fear.
Every other chapter is a letter from the correspondence of the Devil’s servants as they discuss how to ruin the four main characters. But through these letters clearly shine numerous messages to the readers. So while the evil tries in vain to destroy the good, readers are challenged to persevere for the good. To flee from evil. To see through deception. To comfort those who are struggling. To stand up to what is wrong. To encourage others to do right. To treasure God’s Word. To be continually praying and to understand the power of prayer. To value one’s family. To put others first. And to imitate Christ’s forgiveness.
It causes you to think of life through the eyes of God. It’s a glimpse of the big picture. And all the while, it’s one of those books you don’t want to put down. For teenagers or parents, this book is worth your time. All the way. – T. M.
