by Karen Kingsbury and Gary Smalley
When Kari Baxter Jacobs finds that her husband is involved in an adulterous relationship and wants a divorce, she decides to love him and remain faithful to their marriage no matter what. This book shows how seemingly hopeless relationships can be redeemed, and illustrates that love is a decision. "Redemption" is the first book in the five-book Redemption series that Gary and Karen will write about the Baxter family. Each book explores key relationship themes as well as the larger theme of redemption, both in characters' spiritual lives and in their relationships. Each book includes study questions for individual and small-group use. The Redemption series won "Christian Retailing"'s 2005 Retailer's Choice Award for Best Series.
