About the book
The nightmares have returned. Something, or someone, wants to drag Julia Davidson back into a dreadful conflict she assumed was a distant memory. Was this, like before, the echo of another person's dream? Is she responsible to rescue faces she doesn't recognize but can't forget? Do the murky images suggest she has a part to play in whatever ominous events lie ahead?
Things are finally looking up for Matthew Adams. As the top earner at MedCom Associates he has started to crawl out of the financial hole created during his "dark days." And now, out of the blue, a mysterious woman invites him to join a confidential research initiative. She says it will ease the mounting economic crisis. But at what cost to Matthew's fragile sanity, and his tortured soul?
Pastor Alex Ware faces a serious problem. The honeymoon period at Christ Community Church has ended. The finance committee says they can't afford another year of dwindling income and dismal growth. The board wants action, now! Aging parishioners would gladly allocate a portion of their estate to help. But only if Alex stops condemning the transition industry and starts affirming what the Youth Initiative calls "our heroic volunteers."

Godless is the third installment of a series written by Dr. James Dobson and Kurt Bruner. The series started with Fatherless which explored the trend of men neglecting the honor and responsibilities of paternity. The second book, Childless, explored the idea of what would happen when sex is severed from the life-giving joys of maternity. After reading the first two books of the series, I had to complete it by reading Godless. This book confronts the chilling implications of Dostoyevsky's claim that without God all things are permissible.
As I started reading Godless, I reacquainted myself with the characters that I have learned to love from the previous two books. Some characters were mentioned but Didn't play a major role in this installment - I am thinking of Julia's sister and nephew - and it made me wonder what happened to them since the last book. However, as I read I have discovered new characters that were worthy to discover like the elders parents of Kevin Tolbert or Ellie Baxter.
Once again the authors were able to keep me on the edge and grab my attention through the book. I enjoyed reading the conclusion of the series but at the same time it kept me wanting for more. With the events happening at the end of the book, I can't help but wonder if Kevin Tolbert will end up being chosen to become the next president of the country. He does have the charisma and possess numerous ideas to help the economy.
These books emphasis the importance of human life no matter if you are an elderly or someone will special needs. The series projects what will happen three decades in the future when choices by the population come to a point where the economy flips - rapidly aging population and too few young people. Not so long ago, it wasn't a surprise to see big families everywhere. My in-laws have respectively 12 and 11 siblings each. Nowadays, it a surmise to see family with 4 kids like my own. I personally know many other families with more children than ours. In a way in am a Bright Spot (to understand this expression, you will have to read the series or go to http://KurtBruner.com) and I am proud of being a mom of the four gifts that God has given me. I look forward what he has in store for each and every one of them.
If you are still looking for a series to read this summer and want it to be something that will also challenge you in your belief, I strongly suggest that you check out this series of novels written by Dr. James Dobson and Kurt Bruner.
