It is a final chapter in the good vs amoral society which has been turned on it's top by less than zero-population growth practices and genetic engineering.

These are wonderful characters that live and breathe on the pages and you care deeply for them.

Dr. James Dobson and Kurt Bruner in their new book, “Godless” Book Three in the Fatherless series published by FaithWords brings us back into the life of Julia Davidson.

From the back cover: 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.”

In Fatherless and Childless, Dr. James Dobson and Kurt Bruner depicted a time in which present-day trends come to sinister fruition. This eagerly awaited conclusion vividly imagines what happens when God’s image on earth is exchanged for the horrors of a GODLESS world.

Compromise! It is a dirty word.

Fatherless, Childless, and now Godless. James Dobson and Kurt Bruner have looked at demographic trends and the state of morals and religion in the United States and don't much like what they see. Godless continues the story in this third book in the series. The story picks up nicely, catching us up with the lives of the characters we got to know in the first two books. Their lives intertwine, and political and social forces continue to combine efforts in the drive to devalue human life.

That theme, the value of human life, looms over this whole series. With low birth rates and a failing economy, public sentiment leans more and more toward transitions--individuals volunteering for what amounts to assisted suicide--as a means to save the economy. Troy and Kevin continue to promote the "Bright Spots" initiative, in support of the fact that the most successful economic regions are those with the highest birth rates and lowest rates of volunteering for transitions.

They recruit a pastor to gather clergy support for their movement, but very few pastors will speak publicly denouncing transitions. In this future, three or four decades out, gay marriage is a done deal; the voices supporting traditional marriage had been silenced into irrelevance. The question of legal abortion had long been settled. Dobson and Bruner give a stark warning: religious leaders must take the lead in stemming the cultural tides that threaten to sweep away traditional Christian values.

Godless is both thought-provoking and well-plotted. Dobson and Bruner make a great team. Godless would be a worthy finish for a trilogy, but they do leave the door open for future stories. Back in the present day, I hope the lessons of Godless can be learned by warning and example rather than by this fiction coming true.

Does a wonderful job of capturing the reader's attention and keeping the reader engaged. It's refreshing to read a book that praises God's standard for life, family, and the church.

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.
