Why the author wrote this book:
I wrote 'The Inheritance' to demonstrate how anger, bitterness, hypocrisy and pretence can adversely affect our lives and the lives of others and keep us from experiencing God’s grace. In essence, this novel highlights the importance of the command in Hebrews 12:15 – 'See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.'
