Description

A fresh new look for the best-selling series from America’s number-one inspirational novelist, Karen Kingsbury. Fans will enjoy a personal note from Karen and Gary Smalley as well as discussion questions for book group use. Revisit the Baxter family in all their life-changing events, or share the series with someone who hasn’t discovered it yet.

The Redemption series won Christian Retailing’s 2005 Retailer’s Choice Award for Best Series!

When Kari Baxter Jacobs finds out that her husband is involved in an adulterous relationship and wants a divorce, she decides she will love him and remain faithful to her marriage at all costs. This book shows how God can redeem seemingly hopeless relationships, and it illustrates one of Gary Smalley’s key messages: Love is a decision.

Redemption is the first book in the five-book Redemption series about the Baxter family—their fears and desires, their strengths and weaknesses, their losses and victories. Each book explores key relationship themes as well as the larger theme of redemption, both in characters’ spiritual lives and in their relationships.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 17, 2002 – The recent penchant for pairing prolific Christian novelists with well-known CBA nonfiction authors is cause for skepticism, and justifiably so in this first collaboration between Smalley, an author and speaker on family relationships, and novelist Kingsbury. "Good-looking" Indiana University professor Tim Jacobs has found his stereotypical midlife affair with his "achingly beautiful" student Angela Manning more than a passing distraction. His "gorgeous" wife, Kari, who models in her spare time, discovers the affair just as she finds she is pregnant. Even as Kari refuses to grant Tim a divorce, she learns that her high school sweetheart, football star and "hunk" Ryan Taylor, is still single and interested in picking up their romance where they left off. Tim hits the bottle, and things look grim for the couple. Not surprisingly, counseling plays a large role in the work Kari and Tim do to try and salvage their marriage. There is a fairly shameless plug for Smalley's Relationship Center in Branson, Mo., when Kari and Tim's pastor suggests they travel to a two-day "Marriage Intensive Seminar" in the Ozarks. (Readers are also invited to contact the center.) Minus the heavy doses of counseling references and descriptions of the characters' surpassing gorgeousness, Kingsbury's writing is much improved from Halfway to Forever. While she laudably avoids a neat wrapup, it's likely because there are six more books to come in the series. This novel functions largely as an encouraging self-help book rather than as a solid contribution to inspirational fiction.

Customer Reviews

This a must read series..

I love this book, the characters and the story was amazing. I couldn't put it down. Karen Kingsbury has become one of my favorite Christian authors. I love how she applies scripture and relationship with God in her story. I'll be starting book 2 in this series tonight...I can't wait.

LOVE IT!

I love this book! I couldn't put it down and can see my self retreading this in the future and the rest of the series! Definitely a huge fan!

Forgiveness and Family!!!

The first book in Karen Kingsbury's Baxter Family series will certainly have you wanting to read all the others back-to-back! I have never highlighted or made notes in a Fiction book before, but Karen's writing filled with encouraging words, scripture and life lessons makes all of her books go-to guides for years to come. This first book introduces you to the members of the Baxter Family and all their struggles, focusing mostly on Kari Baxter who has just learned her husband is having an affair. Despite advice from family, friends and a long-lost love, Kari decides to try and make the marriage work and forgive her husband. Such a testimony of family and the healing powers of forgiveness.
