Take a Stand is an interesting read written by Nancy Bandusky about the loss of religious freedom in the US. The story really gets going after an openly gay man is killed by a man who claims he was only doing God’s work. The killer says he was motivated by his pastor and by reading the Bible. Soon after, Bibles are outlawed and only churches approved by the government can meet.
The question for the characters is do they take a stand or not. Many had observed how Christianity was becoming watered-down; many were disturbed by increasing hostility towards their faith. But most of them did not know what to do.
This is a timely novel, based on recent events in our country. And the question this book raises is a good one for all believers: how do we respond to the erosion of our religious freedom? Do we take a stand or not?
