Publisher's Description

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes an inspiring 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 wants to see real change in his community, so he starts a voluntary after-school Bible Study and prayer program called Raise the Bar. He knows he is risking his job by leading the program, but before long, Raise the Bar meetings are standing room only.

A year later, violence and gang activity are sharply down, test scores are up, and drug use and teen pregnancy have plummeted. The program is clearly working—until one parent files a lawsuit, claiming Wendell has violated his daughter's rights.

But Principal Quinn knows God is on his side, and he refuses to back down. As he prepares for court, he is deluged by a storm of national attention and criticism. He wants just one attorney on his side in the fight of his life—Luke Baxter.

A timely and nuanced exploration of religious freedom and what it means to be a person of faith in today’s culture, In This Moment will satisfy Kingsbury fans, old and new.

    In This Moment by Karen Kingsbury is part of The Baxter Family series. Wendell Quinn is the principal of Hamilton High School and he is tired of what is happening in his school (drugs, violence, high teen pregnancy). Wendell is going to start a controversial after school program that could cost him his job. Wendell is a Christian and has decided to start a voluntary after-school Bible study and prayer group. After one year, Wendell has seen many changes to his school. Test scores are up, teen pregnancies and violence are down along with violence and drug use. The biggest change is in Cami Nelson. She is no longer angry, she believes in God and has discovered a love of writing. Wendell tells the parents about the program and Andy Nelson, Camis father, is not pleased. He contacts the local newspaper and files a lawsuit against Wendell. Wendell needs to make a choice. Stand up for what he believes in (what is best for his students) and fight the lawsuit or cave into pressure and disband the group. Wendell decides to fight and hires Luke Baxter to defend him. Can Wendell win the lawsuit, or will he lose everything?

    In This Moment has some nice writing and a decent pace. I did not realize In This Moment was part of such a large series until I opened the book. I had trouble reading the sections about Luke Baxter and his extended family. There are numerous family members and I was not aware of their various relationships and backstories (it was confusing). The Baxter family is not heavily featured in this book (fair warning to fans of the series). I found Wendell Quinn courageous for standing up for what he believes in and trying to improve the lives of others. Wendell trusts that God will get him through any situation (which He can) and his vocal about his beliefs. The story, though, is expected. It follows a predictable path with an unoriginal ending. The religious aspect is dominant and comes across as preachy. You can tell where the author stands on the issues presented in the book. I hope that there are people like Wendell Quinn out in the world, but I have never meet a person like him (or any of the people in the book). The characters felt forced (contrived, fake) and many situations seemed unrealistic. I am giving In This Moment 3 out of 5 stars.

    I'm in the process of reading "In This Moment" and so far it has been good and I've enjoyed all of Karen's books, they hold my attention and hard to put down. I pass them on once I've read em' either to a friend or to our church library.

    A fictional story with a powerful punch - believe it or not, our religious freedoms are clearly under attack and too many of us settle back and accept falsehood as truth rather than attempting to make a difference. The quote from Alexander Hamilton on the entry wall of Hamilton High School grabs the attention and imagination of the school principal. It says: "Those who stand for nothing . . . fall for anything." Mr. Quinn knew he had to take some major steps if he was going to change the culture of his school from one of gang violence, teen pregnancies, suicides, absenteeism, and failing grades to a positive environment. In so doing, he found himself in a court of law fighting for what he knew to be true, even though he was swimming against the tide and risking everything to try to help his students learn to stand for something. Luke Baxter, the youngest son of John and Elizabeth Baxter, has transitioned his law practice from entertainment to defending religious liberty. When Mr. Quinn calls him, he finds himself defending a case he is convinced is a losing battle. For me the most beautiful part of the story is the role that the students play. I won't spoil the story for you by describing their involvement, but suffice it to say that their faith, their willingness to get involved, and their determination was huge. I loved the message of the book and the way the story was told.
