When a nativity display on public property is torched by a former US Senator, the media spotlight falls on the forgotten small town of Leonard, Texas, and the new pastor of its only church—Adam Wells.

Emboldened by the prospect of leading his tiny congregation in a nationally-televised, first amendment debate that he considers to be a "fight for the heart and soul of America," Pastor Wells determines not to let anything or anyone, including his wife and his sixteen-year old Goth daughter, stand in his way. But when an old high school friend unexpectedly shows up in their small town and a past secret is revealed, Pastor Wells' constitutional crusade collides with an even greater fight—the fight for the heart and soul of his marriage, his daughter, and, even his own life.

In this modern day story of betrayal, forgiveness, and finally redemption, Adam Wells discovers, for the first time, the meaning of the story he's been preaching all his life...and his desperate daughter understands what really is beyond the farthest star.

Now a major motion picture based on a screenplay by Andrew Librizzi, award-winning authors Bodie and Brock Thoene offer this authentic drama targeting the core Christian consumer market with an emotional call for stronger family relations.

    " Boring in parts, confusing in parts, but mostly predictable. Otherwise a good story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Van Tilburg | 9/30/2013

    " Pride and shame are a dangerous mix, add a dysfunctional family into the mix and only a miracle could save this family. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 6/1/2013

    " Very short happy ending. Most of the book is depressing and the characters infuriating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allen Baldwin | 1/14/2013

    " Another Thoene winner. A departure from her more historical works but very satisfying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb | 9/28/2012

    " Bodie Thoene never disappoints! She always can be counted on to make you think and reevaluate those thoughts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 C.J. Darlington | 7/27/2012

    " I really enjoyed this story. Now I can't wait to see the movie! I will admit though, there were two times when something happened very quickly and very conveniently to challenge my suspension of disbelief. Still, a great book with an inspiring message. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna | 6/18/2012

    " This writing husband/wife team has written some interesting books but this wasn't one of them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanie | 6/10/2012

    " This book intrigues me as it is the story of a minister and his family. Being the daughter of a retired minister, I'm guessing that I will find a lot to relate to in this story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charity U | 3/6/2012

    " Or 3 1/2 stars. It's based on a screenplay. It's a little weird, and I've liked other stuff I've read by the Thoenes better, but this wasn't bad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda Wharton | 2/17/2012

    " A pastor and his dysfunctional family all have their secrets from each other and from the people in their new community. This is a beautiful story of love, forgiveness and faith "
