Beyond The Farthest Star book giveaway #2

A twist of fate brings the national spotlight to a forgotten Texas town and a once famous preacher has an opportunity to regain his former glory or seize one last chance to restore his fractured family. Narrated by his fifteen-year-old daughter, we watch as Adam Wells, a minister driven by the prospect of achieving greatness as the next nationally-syndicated TV Evangelist lays down his opportunity at “celebrity” and even his own life in order to become something even greater... A loving husband and father to his wife and daughter.

That is the premise of  Beyond The Farthest Star ...both the film, and the novel that has been adapted by Brock and Bodie Thoene.  The reviews have been overwhelmingly in favor of the book, and I know that is has certainly whet my appetite to see these characters come to life on the big screen later this year. Although the Thoene's books are frequently historical fiction, I do love this contemporary novel that is based on the screenplay by Andrew Librizzi. There are many scarred and hurting people in this book, but the message of hope is truly inspiring.
 Check out the audio of the first chapter, read by Bodie Thoene:



 This Zondervan novel in E-Book, Paperback and Audio versions are available at all major online sources and major booksellers, including Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Christian Book Distributors
