    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 ...

    I won this book through GoodReads First Read program. This world we live in is becoming more and more anti-Christian each day. The book addresses the difference between freedom of religion (which is in the Constitution) and the freedom from religion (which appears to be the interpre...

    First, if I could have done so, I would have rated this book with 4.5 stars. It is really a great book but not quite a 5-star one. Wendell Quinn is the principal at Hamilton High, and today is the first day of the new school year. He is determined that he will find ways to change th...

    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 sh...

    I enjoyed the characters--both Wendell Quinn and catching up with the Baxters. I've worked in education 16 years, so I found several things unrealistic, but overall, it was a quick read on an interesting topic. I received this book in exchange for my review. My thoughts are my own....

    Relevant is the one overwhelming word to describe In This Moment, the latest Baxter Family book from Karen Kingsbury. With the increase in drug overdoses, gang violence, and broken families, many believers are calling for a return to the values that once set our nation apart. Main char...

    In This Moment is part of the Baxter Family series. There are like 25 or 26 Baxter books before this but whose counting. You don't have to read all the previous books about the Baxter family to know what is going on. The author takes several pages in the beginning to give you a brief h...

    "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. For Wendell Quinn, a principal at a high school riddled with problems, he decides to offer a voluntary Bible S...

    Once people stop believing in their rights of religion, those rights are whole lot easier to take away. What is the freedom of the religion? How do our religious freedoms affect our way of life? The story of Principal Wendell Quinn and his students in a small town America reflect w...

    This was a quick and easy book to read, although not my favorite Baxter story. I can see that it is relevant in current times. The writing wasn't quite what I expected as I found a couple of inconsistencies and also too much repetition with the story of Wendell and Alicia and her past ...

    I love series, the longer the better. Karen Kingsbury has created a saga wither her Baxter Family books. In This Moment is another installment in the Baxter families lives. I enjoyed getting the updates on all of the family members and it was enjoyable to spend time with Luke Baxter. H...

    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, h...

    This was such a sweet, powerful, and important story and I loved every second of it. It was well written, had a very important message, and the characters were so filled with faith and love. I loved the message in this book. Now days, everybody fears offending someone so we don?t ...

    In the day and age of fighting for rights, including those of the right to practice Christianity, Karen Kingsbury writes a powerful book as part of the Baxter Family series. Just as things today are so tenuous regarding activities that ?offend? people, this book surrounds that s...

    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...

    Kingsbury books are so real they feel like they could be happening in my hometown or to people I know. This really adds to the tension and drama. I could empathize with Alicia and her fear of what would happen if Wendell went ahead with his plan. The same challenges raised in the book ...

    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 ...

    I loved the message in this book. Now days, everybody fears offending someone so we don?t discuss God or Jesus in public. In this book, people actually thought that it was illegal to mention God in public. I fear that this is the way things will go if something doesn?t change soon....

    Please! Make It Stop! Make The Torture Stop! I Can't Take It Anymore! Dear Karen Kingsbury, I'm onto you. I know your plan. I know this isn't really a novel. This is a cleverly disguised movie script packaged as a wholesome book for you to present to production companies. It se...

    I am not at all impressed with this book. It should have been advertised as a stand-alone book, NOT a Baxter Family book, as advertised. Luke Baxter and his family are minor characters at best. If you're looking for a Baxter Family book, skip it. If you're looking for a Kingsbury b...

    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 st...
