The nightmares have returned. Something, or someone, wants to drag Julia Davidson back into a dreadful conflict she assumed was a distant memory. Was this, like before, the echo of another person's dream? Is she responsible to rescue faces she doesn't recognize but can't forget? Do the murky images suggest she has a part to play in whatever ominous events lie ahead

Overview

The nightmares have returned. Something, or someone, wants to drag Julia Davidson back into a dreadful conflict she assumed was a distant memory. Was this, like before, the echo of another person's dream? Is she responsible to rescue faces she doesn't recognize but can't forget? Do the murky images suggest she has a part to play in whatever ominous events lie ahead?

Things are finally looking up for Matthew Adams. As the top earner at MedCom Associates he has started to crawl out of the financial hole created during his "dark days." And now, out of the blue, a mysterious woman invites him to join a confidential research initiative. She says it will ease the mounting economic crisis. But at what cost to Matthew's fragile sanity, and his tortured soul?

Pastor Alex Ware faces a serious problem. The honeymoon period at Christ Community Church has ended. The finance committee says they can't afford another year of dwindling income and dismal growth. The board wants action, now! Aging parishioners would gladly allocate a portion of their estate to help. But only if Alex stops condemning the transition industry and starts affirming what the Youth Initiative calls "our heroic volunteers."
In Fatherless and Childless, Dr. James Dobson and Kurt Bruner depicted a time in which present-day trends come to sinister fruition. This eagerly awaited conclusion vividly imagines what happens when God's image on earth is exchanged for the horrors of a GODLESS world.

This was the last book of Dr Dobson's trilogy with.Kurt Bruner. I enjoyed the series and the possible look into the future based on some recent trends. I pray that we have a revival in time to avoid where we seem to be headed. Seeing God change lives was a great part of the overall series.

"If there is no God, all things are permissible." Imagine a world where society would rather claim their own self importance and desires, than to hold on to some outdated religious beliefs that God exists and that He has determined a standard of right and wrong. That may have worked many decades ago but in the future, things are much different that they were for our parents and grandparents. The year is 2044 and due to the economic downturn hitting virtually every single country, something has to change. Healthcare for the elderly is at an all-time premium and now there is a sliding scale to determine which treatments are available for them. The new Youth Initiative provision requires the an audit of the elderly's treatment allocation to determine their net-value ratios. The deeper the financial crisis, the lower the birthday for mandatory review: age eighty in 2040, dropping to seventy-five by '42 and plummeting to seventy earlier this year. Now seniors are being denied medical treatment simply based on their value to contribute to the younger generation. With there being fewer children being born, the needs of the finances possessed by the elderly are needed by the younger generation to keep the world going. Elderly people, the disabled and those not able to contribute to the economy are considered "debits." Those people who support the family and traditional values of respect and caring for the sick and elderly are no considered bigots, intolerant and "breeders" "As religious zealots polluting the planet by spawning a bunch of crib-lizards who consume more than their share of resources and then have the audacity to keep their old and disabled loved ones around as pets when that money could have gone to the younger, healthier citizens." Now there is an all out push for more transitions to take place. Churches are actively promoting transitions as a way of passing along their wealth to further the growth of the church by making them the beneficiaries. "They simply see transitions like a Boy Scout helping little old ladies. Only instead of escorting them across the street, you help them cross the threshold." Now as Congressman Kevin Tolbert and his team aggressively work to counter the Youth Initiative with the Bright Spots campaign, "young couples who consider children a blessing rather than a burden. People who love and honor their aging parents rather than trade them in for cash. And those who serve their disabled loved ones as fellow creatures who reflects the image of God rather than discard them as accidental genetic blunders." Studies now show that communities that promote this idea over the Youth Initiative provide pockets of vitality and growth amid the dark economic clouds. But there are those who want nothing more than to silence the opposition at all costs. Willing to go as far as helping transitions occur in the home instead of the clinic and in some cases even assisting them when they are fearful or confused. Does this chilling look at the future have any bearing on what is happening slowly in the world today? Is this a premonition of the future of the world when are simply willing to forget God and allow anything to become permissible? Now that marriage isn't just between a man and women, but now partners? This entire series of novels from authors Dr. James Dobson and Kurt Bruner deserve a hard look at what is possible coming our way in the not so distant future. I received Godless from Dr. James Dobson and Kurt Bruner compliments of Faith Words for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions are my own unless otherwise notated. This is the third book and hopefully not the concluding one in the Fatherless Series. The first book Fatherless and then Childless show a growing trend towards where the final novel winds up. In light of certain policies hitting the government desks of politicians lately with assisted suicides becoming more acceptable, traditional marriage being passed up in favor of same sex marriages, this novel shows a gradually decline into what could quite possibly be on the horizon for our future. We can only hope if it does, that Jesus will come back at the rapture before we see it come to fruition in the tribulation. I absolutely LOVED this series and highly recommend it to anyone. I truly worth 5 out of 5 stars. "We either submit to the sanity of what's true or become ensnared by the madness of lies."(pg 223).
