Publisher's Summary

From number one New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury comes a brand-new Baxter Family novel about a beloved high school principal who starts a Bible study to improve the lives of his struggling students, only to become the national focus of a controversial lawsuit.

Hamilton High principal Wendell Quinn is tired of the violence, drug abuse, teen pregnancies, and low expectations at his Indianapolis school. A single father of four, Quinn is a Christian and a family man. He wants to see change in his community, so he starts a voluntary after-school Bible study and prayer program. He knows he is risking his job by leading the program, but the high turnout at every meeting encourages him.

A year later, violence and gang activity are down, test scores are up, and drug use and teen pregnancy have plummeted. The program is clearly working - until one parent calls the press. Now Quinn faces a lawsuit that could ruin everything.

With a storm of national attention and criticism, Quinn is at a crossroads - he must choose whether to cave in and shut down the program or stand up for himself and his students. The battle comes with a high cost, and Quinn wants just one attorney on his side for this fight: Luke Baxter.

In This Moment is an inspiring, relevant story about the nuances of religious freedom and how a group of determined people just might restore the meaning of faith in today's culture.

Great Book

The story was wonderful. Words from this book can teach a lot of lessons if you study them from the Bible. The performance could be a little better but it doesn’t take away from the book. Overall I enjoyed the book and can apply so much of it to my life. Way to go Karen, you did it again !

Karen Kingsbury does it again!

What did you love best about In This Moment?

I love the fact that Karen Kingsbury writes a relevant story about what is going on in our schools today and the impact the absence and presence of God can have on our children.

What did you like best about this story?

Really, my best was the glimpses of the Baxter family.

What about Kirby Heyborne and January LaVoy ’s performance did you like?

They do an excellent job of providing outstanding narrations and bringing life to the characters.

Wow!

I have always enjoyed reading Karen's books, but I must say she really outdid herself this time. Such a wonderful story and beautifully written. I would definitely love to see this as a movie. The narrators are fabulous too. Thank you all.

Relevant, engaging, TRUTH

Incredible read! Already mentioned to book club that they need to read it. I’m ready to reread it with them and then do the guided questions at the end with them. Already have several people in mind to gift it to as well!

Defending our Rights

This book really hit home as I see our Right to have God in our lives dwindling before our very eyes in the USA. Hearing this story made me feel stronger to take a stand for that Right more often.

Good message

A bit dramatic for me but I enjoyed the twists and turns. It’s a typical Hallmark story so you know how it ends. I like syrup in my pancakes but not pancakes in my syrup. The reading was a bit much and at times I thought about stopping but curiosity got me through the drama. For stories with a strong religious belief you’d love this read. I’m strong in my faith but this is heavier and too perfect of a read. I’m especially not pleased with the murders but I know that’s how the devil was twisted into the story on purpose by the author.

inspirational book.

I liked it and was inspired. The narrator is at times not believable. I'm glad I read it.

In this moment

A good story. Hard to imagine America has really gone that far against God, in law circles. Needed to be publicised.
