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.

What disappointed you about In This Moment?

it was to predictable, i don't think Mrs Kingsbury gave enough back story on main characters girl friend, I did not even listen to last two chapters as i was getting more and more disappointed I love this Authors book and so glad we hit the mark with God in school, but just didnt do it for me. just a question main characters where of a different ethnic background on cover then store!!!!

What was most disappointing about Karen Kingsbury’s story?

imknew what was coming around the corner

How did the narrator detract from the book?

hard to understand who was who with narration.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from In This Moment?

i wouldn't have cut anything , i might have added like the shooting,

Any additional comments?

again i love anything Baxter , so i was into book at first liking where it was going , it was getting there, was same old same ...... sorry i hate doing this but i give honest reviews

Too preachy and unrealistic dialogue.

I am a Karen Kingbury fan, but was very disappointed with this one. Popular story line, repetitive preaching, and unrealistic dialogue.

In This Moment

I love how the Angels Among Us characters were in the book.

I enjoyed how the book brings awareness to religious rights.
