Having led us through forgiveness, the Lord’s Prayer turns to temptation. Jesus approaches the subject from a curious angle. He asks us to pray that the Father will not lead us into temptation. It is by prayer that we succeed in this task, not because we are seeking divine providence from without (asking the Father to come down from on high and give Satan the boot) but because through prayer we call ourselves to wakefulness, just as Jesus woke up Lazarus.

If we cannot blame God for temptation, we will say his sin is a sickness so.It is not the temptation itself that leads us to sin, but the lack of resistance and trust in the Lord for deliverance. Learn More about the Lord's Prayer!

If we cannot blame God for temptation, we will say his sin is a sickness so as not to face the judgment. Sin is not a sickness, but a moral failure and we will have to face judgment. We may also blame others or our circumstances, which are not the cause of sin either. Christ was human and He can identify with our struggles. Hebrews 4:14-16 says, "Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.

Arthur Blake, former NASA engineer turned minister, receives an emergency appointment to be pastor of the United Methodist Church in Parkville, a distant suburb of Chicago, following the bizarre sudden death of the church's unusual former pastor. Pastor Blake's attempts to unravel the mystery that shrouds his predecessor become involved with tracking the child of a possibly bigamous soldier in World War II England, art and jewelry treasures plundered by the Nazis and their sympathizers, and the eventual results of childhood sibling conflicts in combined families. Arthur's allies in his investigation include Parkville Police Chief Bobby Andrews, County Medical Examiner Irma Custis, and the married team of Penny and Joe Gonzalez who work for a clandestine government agency. During the course of "Lead Us Not into Temptation," the reader discovers how seemingly minor historical events lead to major present-day dislocations in church, village, and family relationships.
"Lead Us Not into Temptation" is the first in a planned series of five Lord's Prayer Mysteries written by Richard Davidson. The protagonist, Arthur Blake, is the new pastor of a suburban Chicago Methodist Church, whose previous anti-social minister has died under mysterious circumstances. In addition to investigating his predecessor's death, Pastor Blake needs to re-engage his congregation and find ways to attract new members, especially young people.

The author has created a complex plot rich with intrigue and historical tidbits from the World War Two era. These include issues of possible bigamy, Nazi plundering of Jewish art treasures, ancestor DNA searches, two murders, a potential budding romance, and many other twists and turns before the mystery is solved.

The opening line pulled me in immediately: "The hymn straggled to its raggedy conclusion as Arthur Blake loosened his tie and took his first hesitant step toward the pulpit." From there I was gradually introduced to a cast of well-developed characters and a variety of issues that most readers will be able to relate to.

My slight concern that I might feel "preached to" was dispelled a few pages later as shirtless Arthur Blake, just back from a basketball game with a young parishioner, runs into the chair of the Finance Committee, who already has her sights set on the new pastor. When he declines her invitation to go jogging, she is disappointed, but "At least she knew that she had overestimated the amount of hair on his chest and back."

Author Dick Davidson, who has been creating a book a year since he started his mystery series, is the president of Off-Campus Writers' Workshop, the oldest - 65 years - continually running writers' group in the United States. He is a certified Methodist Lay Speaker and Leader, an entrepreneur and a retired Aeronautical Engineer.

Despite well-placed clues throughout, "Lead Us Not into Temptation" kept me in suspense and guessing until the very end of the book. I'm looking forward to joining the cast of characters again as I read the next three mysteries in the series.
"The hymn straggled to its raggedy conclusion..." leads us into this complex and satisfying tale. Arthur Blake is preaching to a tough audience at his new assignment, Parkville United Methodist Church. Lead Us Not Into Temptation by Richard Davidson is an intricate tangle of genealogy, murder and morality. From Parkville, Illinois to war torn Germany the story moves with twists and turns that keep you turning the page.

Davidson uses Arthur's expertise as a former NASA engineer, his formidable logic and his fascination with history to unravel the mystery of the skeletons in the closet of his new church. As the story unfolds, we meet a diverse cast of carefully drawn characters. How their decisions have impacted their lives and those of others hints at the consequences of succumbing to temptation. The novel touches on a number of moral and ethical dilemmas, from wartime romance to basic human greed.

The wealth of historical information provides a rich backdrop for this captivating tale. Thorough research is evident as the lives of a seemingly disparate cast of characters are artfully intertwined into a series of mysteries. Hats off to Mr. Davidson for a splendid first novel. I am looking forward to reading more of Pastor Blake's adventures in the future!
