Publishers Description After suffering the loss of his mother and separation from his sister and the girl he loved, Jordan Riley fills the holes in his soul with anger. But Faith Evans begins to disassemble the walls around Jordan 's heart, and he realizes there's something very familiar about her... Everything Is on the Line ."..for Faith Evans, " an up-and-coming newscaster. A woman of honor and integrity, who finds herself making a stand against the one man she never imagined would be her enemy... ."..for Jordan Riley, " a powerful attorney dedicated to fighting for human rights and against God. A man still reckoning with the boyhood loss of the three women who once meant everything to him... ."..for Bethany, Pennsylvania, " a small town no one ever dreamed would become the center of national attention. But it has. All because of a beloved, hundred-year-old statue of Jesus Christ that stands in Bethany's park. A statue that some say is a clear violation of separation of church and state. A statue that has to come down. A statue that suddenly becomes the focus of a bitter conflict--one rife with political intrigue, social injustice, and personal conflicts. Before it's over, everything that Jordan and Faith and the town of Bethany stand for will be challenged. "Will love be enough when the battle rages on every side?" Story Behind the Book "Each of my novels is a piece of my heart. "Where Yesterday Lives" was my first-ever novel, and as such it is somewhat autobiographical. The childhood story of Ellen Barrett, her love for her parents and siblings, is my story--though her current story and struggles are fictional. "On Every Side "sheds light on the struggle for religious freedom in today's climate; something I am passionate about. Finally, "When Joy Came to Stay" is the story of one woman's battle against depression and the secrets of her past." --Karen Kingsbury

Christian sensorship...it's happening now! Jan 19, 2007
I enjoy Karen Kingsbury books so very much. They are always entertaining and I can relate to her characters. However I am amazed at the way Karen took the subject of sensorship of a Christian topic and made it come alive. America is in the midddle of this very thing happening and American people had better wake up or we just may find we have nothing to say in matters of being a Christian in a very un-Christian nation....the United States. I so hope it doesn't happen! Read this book and take it to heart.
An awesome parallel with the story of Joshua (in the Bible) and heart wrenching emotions!!! Mar 18, 2006
Karen Kingsbury is extremely talented! I don't know how she does it with EVERY book! I loved the real life charactars and the way that they came back to God. I really felt like I was fealing the actual emotions of the charactars. It wasn't just a light little love story. It was deep with conflict and emotions. I also loved how Kingsbury based this book about the Bible charactar Joshua. This book also was good because it had some legal stuff in it that I thought was interesting. This is one of the best books I have read and I have read a lot of books.
