The Above the Line Series follows two dedicated Hollywood producers as they seek to transform the culture through the power of film. After Chase Ryan returns to his family and a job in his hometown, his best friend and fellow filmmaker Keith Ellison pairs up with former Hollywood heartthrob Dayne Matthews to finish following the dream—making movies that might change the world. In this unabridged audio download of Take Four, filmmakers Keith Ellison and Dayne Matthews have finally inked a deal to have the nation’s top young actor star in their current film. But at the same time, the actor takes a very public fall that threatens his reputation among his fan base. Meanwhile, healing happens for Andi Ellison in her relationship with God, her family, and those she loves, but is it too late? The new producers find they must truly act as missionaries in order to help save the film, their families, and the young movie star. Breakthroughs take place that the public will never know about, as the possibility of saving the world through film is finally a very real possibility.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dru | 2/18/2014

    " Another great book by Kingsbury! But I have to admit it felt almost too similiar to other books in the series that it was as of I was rereading others. Not only that but it was extremely predictable. It still made for a fun read if you want something easy! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rshelite | 2/17/2014

    " Another excellent book by Karen. This one is about Andi deciding to give her baby up for adoption or not and Bailey being the lead roll in the new movie of Keith and Dayne's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jo | 2/15/2014

    " Well written as usual, but disappointing that she didn't get to the end of the Bailey/Cody saga. The editing department must have missed a final run-through. (I wasn't looking for errors, but they just popped up.) However, a great book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anita | 2/10/2014

    " The fourth and last book to the 'Above The Line' series, ending another season in the lives of the (ongoing) characters from Karen Kingsbury's writings. Her works are no different from watching a family-oriented television series whereby one follows the characters development over the years. As always, her writings cannot be read without tissues on hand -- that's what makes them so very good -- because they are so real, so relateable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim Holdiman | 2/1/2014

    " Love Karen Kingsbury! Everything she writes touches my heart. There's always love and family issues that need resolution. God is always the center of that resolution. She has a way of sharing scripture that brings it to a new light for me. I just plain feel good when I read her books. They are an easy read...a curl up in your favorite chair and just enjoy! Although I personally didn't enjoy the Take series as much as her other books. "
