Summary
There was much to fear in Sanctuary, Montana. Small, poor, and brutal, it was a place people fought to leave, not one they sought out. But one day a preacher came to stay. He drank whiskey, gambled, and faced down hard men in the street, wielding his belt like a whip of righteousness. He seemed to know the secrets of the town, for he was the dark form of both unholy vengeance and blessed salvation
Summary
The town of Sanctuary is controlled by a fanatical reverend and a vicious rancher. Considering the circumstances, few men stop in Sanctuary longer than it takes to get their boots dusty. Then one day, a hard-drinking, gun-toting preacher named Mordecai steps off the train. Mordecai brings a new morality for the townsfolk and clashes with everthing they know. His message angers the ruling elite, but Mordecai intends to stay until he's heard--loud and clear
