Reviewed by Tracee G. for Readers' Favorite

The Price by Leon Newton is an one act play. The setting is Hell. A millionaire found himself in Hell. He demands to speak with Satan. His paperwork must have been lost or messed up. After all he was basically a good man. He tried to convince the devil there had been a mistake. Finally demanding to know why he was there. The devil takes great delight in showing him there has not been a mistake, he never accepted the Lord as his Savior.

Other souls in hell come forth and share their sins. I recommended this play to a youth director. The message within this short book is one we all need to read. Pride, arrogance, greed, is a few of the sins the people confess too. There is only one unforgivable sin, not accepting the salvation, grace and forgiveness that are offered to you.

The millionaire was baffled, why would he go to hell, after all he was basically a good man. His questions were very realistic. I suspect many have asked the same question.

Newton is a very talented author. He has skillfully created a short play that will touch the lives of many. The message is very strong and powerful and yet entertaining. The reader will find a bit of humor in the dialogue. The play will stay with you long after you have closed the book. It gives the reader much to ponder.
