Wendell Quinn is out of options. The Indianapolis high school he has been hired to turn around as principal has increasingly high percentages of gang violence, drug usage, teen pregnancy, student deaths, and low test scores.

After several years and many attempts to do help the struggling schools, Wendell decides to try an afterschool, voluntary Bible study. When he announces his idea, there are some murmurs, but no one stops him. A year later, the club has nearly quadrupled in size and numbers against the school have done a convincing about face. But then the wrong person realizes what is going on and decides to take his anger out on Principal Quinn. Book two in “The Baxter Family” series is an unexpected journey into America’s current fight for religious freedom and the ignorance of its people in regards to the topic.
