Book Review: El Moreno, Vendetta di Dio


El Moreno, Vendetta di Dio: A Desert Legend About the Other Side by John Harris is a sort of modern-day Dante’s Inferno. The main character takes a trip to “the other side,” and pairs up with El Moreno, who is an administrator of God’s justice to damned souls.

This book, in my opinion, is needed in today’s politically correct and “progressive” culture. Hell isn’t a popular topic; indeed, it seems an increasing number of Christian leaders from all denominations are denying hell’s existence, though the Bible clearly states hell is real. They are, knowingly or unknowingly, undermining our culture’s view of God. He is, nowadays, just some impotent love bug who is a nice addition to your life if you feel you need him. A proper and biblical view of God’s justice needs to be restored. This book does that.

You won’t find any other book like this besides Dante’s Inferno. Perhaps I should say you won’t find any other modern book like this. That’s why I think it’s so important and that it needs to be read. That’s partly why I’m advertising it.

The book is slow at some points, and it gets caught up in what I think are unnecessary details. But the point of the book is worth it. No one else is writing things like this. This book needs to be read.

I rate it 4/5 stars.

Note: I am not related to the author. We just happen to share the same last name. However, he was my first college English professor at the University of Texas at Tyler, and we have recently been communicating about our writing/self-publishing endeavors. He hasn’t paid me anything to review or advertise his book. I volunteered to post a review of El Moreno to my website, and he said yes.
