God's not dead...but they're trying to kick him out of the public square!
Welcome back to Hope Springs...where Grace Wesley teaches high school history. She is on the hot seat with the school district after she answers Brooke Thawley's question about Jesus during a classroom discussion. Suddenly Brooke becomes a pawn in an epic court case that could cost Grace the career she loves.
Tom Endler, a lawyer with the teachers' union, is tapped to represent Grace in her fight for her First Amendment rights. He finds himself fighting for a cause he doesn't even believe in. Tom's research leads him to Amy Ryan, a reporter and former skeptic who found faith while battling cancer and watching the classroom battle unfold at Hadleigh University a year ago. Both are soon on a journey to understand what genuine faith really means as they fight to save Grace's job and avoid a court decision that could cripple the free speech rights of all Christians in the marketplace.

I was so impressed with the audible version that I also bought the Kindle version. There were so many references to the case for Christ and underlying References that I wanted to be able to read them repeatedly. So I guess I am saying For reference purposes the printed book was best.
Grace who faced great odds for her belief in God and never waivered in her Christian beliefs.
This narrator was very believable and could easily switch to the numerous different Characters without the listener having to stop short and say huh? Have to rewind I missed something.
Yes. I receive a newsletter from an evangelical organization. In January 2016, There were articles on different subversive groups that were trying to take Christianity out of the public domain. This book's major theme anti-Christianity vs being able to express publicly your Christian views made me so happy that a movie/book was being offered to the average person that expresses the view of Christianity. As Christians we Are often viewed as unfairly. The book brought home the point of why is everyone allowed to stand up in public for their views but Christians?
This is the 2nd book that I have read/listened to by Travis Thrasher that was based on an upcoming movie. He does a really great job of keeping the reader's interest and Moving the story forward. I am anxious to compare the book and the movie. I couldn't Bring myself to do this with the first book "The Remaining" because frankly Mr. Thrasher Scared me with that end times novel. (Lol)
