Overview

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 rebellious sixteen-year old 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. Award-winning authors, Bodie and Brock Thoene, have written an emotional and authentic drama based on a screenplay by Andrew Librizzi and now a major motion picture.

The megaseller Thoene team shift from historical to contemporary as they turn a screenplay into a novel that accompanies the forthcoming Pathlight Entertainment film by the same name. The tear-jerking, heartwarming tale pits troubled teenager Anne Wells against her father, Adam, a former preaching prodigy now desperate to lead a small Texas church and, perhaps, revive his career. Throw in more ingredients—peacemaking mom Maurene, caught in the middle; 16-year-old Stephen Miller, who sees more than Anne’s angry exterior; a former senator with national aspirations; a mysterious stranger from the past; a troubled boy whose anger turns deadly—and readers will find a novel that’s entertaining and challenging. When tragedy occurs, all the characters must examine their hearts for true motives and new understanding. Predictably—it’s a holiday film, after all—long-buried secrets are revealed, and hearts are broken and remolded to become whole again. The Thoenes have created a tale sure to draw readers eager for drama and escape. (Jan.)
