The God Fileby Frank Turner Hollon
Gabriel Black is sentenced to prison for a murder he did not commit. In a twisted expression of honor, he takes responsibility for the action of a woman he loves and pays with his freedom. One day in the prison library Gabriel reads about a man with a wonderful family and a successful career who finds that he has been cured of cancer — thus proving, the man says, the existence of God. Gabriel believes a truer test of God’s existence would be to find proof of Him in a disgusting, violent, hopeless corner of the world like prison. Gabriel creates a file where he stores any evidence of the divine he comes across no matter how unseemly. In brutal, honest language, 'The God File' recounts the dark comedy of one man’s search for meaning.

Alabama Attorney Frank Hollon has obviously seen the hopelessness of prison life. His main character, Gabriel Black, searches for hope in a hopeless situation. A hopeless situation that he put himself into. I found myself unable to put the book down. I wanted to lightly read this book, but found the reading sometimes so intense I couldn't focus on anything but the book. I must admit I thought the book would have a more spiritual side than it did based on the title. While my expectations were high for a spirit filled book, I must admit I was not disappointed. Frank manages to help Gabriel and others find hope in hopeless situations. When you finish reading this book you'll find yourself questioning your faith, however weak or strong that faith may be!
'The God File' is a an excellent book that keeps the reader captivated from beginning to end. The Author has a gift for injecting the reader into the main character. The story takes the reader on a fascinating thought provoking journey to determine if God actually exists. It is a story told with brutal honesty. As with Frank Turner Hollen's first book 'The Pains of April', I was left with a lesson in humility. Today after reading 'The God File' I came up with my own conclusion about the existence of God. In the process, my own life had a new perspective. I rediscovered my own priorities.
