|Christian Fiction? Dec 19, 2008|
|I was really looking forward to reading this book. However, I was extremely disappointed. It just seems that Karen Kingsbury writes trashy fiction for Christians and in my opinion the way this book turned out I don't even see this as Christian fiction at all. It was littered with adultery and in the end we get the sense that the Lord would reward the adultery (I have not read the other books in this series and will never touch another Karen Kingsbury book again). I won't give away the ending. Unfortunately, Ms. Kingsbury tries desperately to write like Francine Rivers and even copies the manner by which she places Scripture but she is far from the gifted writing of Francine Rivers. Francine Rivers actually chooses topics of depth not the trashy romantic novel reinvented in a Christian paperback that I am so sick and tired of....No more Karen Kingsbury for me...|

|The book came on time and i love Karen's books and this is just as good as the rest|
|Redemption Book 1 Oct 12, 2008|
|If you like audio books, this is a great addition to the wonderful Christian book series of Redemption about Baxter. My wife and I tried this out because she raved so much to me that I thot we could listen while traveling. BUT, with a single person reading it the characters are not defined enough and so it gets confusing to me. My wife had a hard time following this audio presentation as well.|
Guess we will just stay with the books which are great!
|Hard to leave Sep 9, 2008|
|The beginning of the book and the subject of betrayal, could have been very depressing but I really wanted to know what the title had reference to. Whether this man could have been forgiven and the turnaround. I didn't see how so it kept me involved. I loved all the good references to family,their times together and their loyalty to their daughter and sister. Very surprising ending. I think it was very well written.|
|Absolutely spellbinding! Aug 20, 2008|
|This is one of the most intriguing books I have read in recent years. I was attracted to this series because I know of Gary Smalley's work and found it interesting that he would combine real-life counseling and fictional characters. Frankly, I think it was a genius idea because we are having more people read and discover helps for their own lives because they are willing to read fiction when they wouldn't read other books. I love the way that the main characters seek God's leadership before making any decisions and follow his will. God's way is the best way is driven home by having those who willfully disobey what they know God's will to be and suffer the consequences. I simply could not wait even one night to get the following book when I was through with one. Therefore, I went and bought all 13 available books in the series so I would never have to wait.|
