Overview

When a nativity display on public property is torched by a former US Senator, the media spotlight falls on the forgotten small town of Leonard, Texas, and the new pastor of its only church—Adam Wells. Emboldened by the prospect of leading his tiny congregation in a nationally-televised, first amendment debate that he considers to be a “fight for the heart and soul of America,” Pastor Wells determines not to let anything or anyone, including his wife and his rebellious sixteen-year old daughter, stand in his way. But when an old high school friend unexpectedly shows up in their small town and a past secret is revealed, Pastor Wells’ constitutional crusade collides with an even greater fight—the fight for the heart and soul of his marriage, his daughter, and, even his own life. In this modern-day story of betrayal, forgiveness, and finally redemption, Adam Wells discovers, for the first time, the meaning of the story he’s been preaching all his life…and his desperate daughter understands what really is beyond the farthest star. Award-winning authors, Bodie and Brock Thoene, have written an emotional and authentic drama based on a screenplay by Andrew Librizzi and now a major motion picture.

This is a refreshing, dynamic story full secrets, twists, and memorable characters. Definitely a page turner, it keeps you hooked without letting you down. I was moved and on the edge of my seat. Then I find there is a movie coming out in 2012. I'm there!

They watched everyone nervously. "What do you think we should do? If we leave, we'll probably die, if we stay, we might get killed," the tom said. "Why would we die if we leave?" The she-cat asked. "Because we dont know how to hunt or defend ourselves against foxes and badgers and stuff." "Oh, right." "If we stay, and we dont do anything evil, they find out we're good, they'll kill us."
