Evil stalks the family of Pastor Ron Herrod . . . watching, waiting for the right time and for the most vulnerable person to strike. When Evil Strikes reads as though it is fiction, but the compelling story is true. One can feel evil lurking to crush the faith of committed Christians.

Fifteen-year-old Twila Herrod is the chosen victim—a stranger sexually assaults her. When her family moves to a new church in Ft. Smith, AR, they buy a house next door to the Morrows. Eugene Morrow secretly watches Twila through the windows and longs for the loving relationships she has. One night when Twila is home alone, Eugene sees a way to prove himself.

Eugene is a victim himself, having endured long-term sexual abuse from a trusted uncle. Eugene grows up belittled and abused by an alcoholic father and weak mother. He can never do anything well enough to earn either parent's favor. Finally he quits trying, but his internal rage and frustration approach an explosion.

An innocent baby is conceived in the violent act—will he become a third victim? What should Twila do? What will her parents think? Abortion seems as though it is a way out; her parents would never have to know. How could she provide the home and family a baby deserves? Why didn't God prevent this?

Despite the seemingly impossible circumstances, God is there with Twila and her family. In a beautiful way He fulfills the promise of Romans 8:28: And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him.
