    "In This Moment" is a timely book about a topic frequently in the news. Whether you are a person of faith or not, religious persecution is becoming prevalent in our society.

    I’ll be up front, I’ve been a fan of Karen Kingsbury forever. My mom was reading her books for years then when I got older and wanted more than my Teen genre had to offer she began recommending Kingsbury. I fell in love. Her books give you a chance to relax and get away from the stress of the world while believing happily ever afters are possible and your faith can get you through anything.This is the first time ever I felt like I had to forc...

    At its core, Kingsbury's latest is an interesting story about the modern climate of religious freedom in the United States. However, one has to muddle through some factual inaccuracies and heavy-handed preaching of doom and gloom in order to find the key ideas. Although this is a part of the Baxter series, it easily stands alone because the Baxters are only peripheral characters, and the author makes sure to delineate the myriad family ties multi...

    I love her books, but this one comes across more like a lecture :(

    I have worked my way through the entire 20-something books in the Baxter series this year with anticipation of getting to this one. Only to be disappointed. The story felt forced and feature too little Baxter family. It seemed like such a let down after enjoying the early years of this series. *I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.*

    I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review so...I honestly loved this book. "Those who stand for nothing will fall for everything."I've fallen in love over the Baxter Family in the twenty-some books that I have read. This one was a great new edition addressing a controversial issue in today's society. How should one address God in public? Karen Kingsbury answers that question with a captivating story that fans are going ...

    Here’s some Christian fiction that really made me think. Quinn is a public school principal, and he is questioned over and over when he decides to host a voluntary Bible study after school in order to provide some structure and direction to his students. His reputation is at stake, his relationships are threatened, and his job is on the line.I liked the law aspect that made this book a kind of cross between John Grisham and women’s Christian ...

    I have been a KK fan ever since I read the first Baxter books 17 years ago. I read the mixed reviews about this book and was concerned if I would enjoy it...I Did! It is more a book about religious freedom than a romance...very thought provoking for me. I loved seeing Luke Baxter as a freedom fighter attorney. The Baxters are not the central characters in this book, they are more support roles. I loved Wendell (H) and loved the diversity KK broug...

    This was a fabulous book with themes from racism, religious freedom, and faithfulness of God. I challenge any Christian to read this book, especially those teachers in public school. It was one of best Church vs. State books I have read. If you enjoyed the new God's not Dead 2, this should be your next read.
