Karen Kingsbury is truly one of the best christian fiction writers around today, although Francine Rivers is up there to.

'Take Three' will not disappoint fans. In her usual stylish manner she beds difficult and tough life issues into an engaging storyline. I'm sure fans will find this a real page turner if you can excuse the cliche and be left inspired. Some more great christian fiction of note at the moment are 'Godstone' and 'A skeleton in God's closet'.

Godstone - The Kairos Boxes

A Skeleton In God's Closet

I have never been dissapointed by one of Karen's books. I love how God uses her to speak to others through her books. Her stories are always gripping and always encouraging! Can't wait to read Take Four!

If you've read any of Karen's books about the Baxter family, or any of the the other above the line series, then you'll love this. To me her stories always deal with real life issues and I love how the characters are always on a journey to walk in faithfulness, yet they are not fake. Reading about Andi's struggles, pregnancy, depression, and thoughts toward abortion were gripping. I love how her stories show the love and faithfulness of a God who loves us more than we could ever imagine.

I no longer care for any book by this author as her books are constantly almost the same story just from another characters perspective she writes them so quickly that she seems not to have time to actually think up new plots

Any book by Karen is worth the time you spend reading it! March 25 2010
By hoodie - Published on Amazon.com

I'm pretty sure that anybody who has ever read a Karen Kingsbury book isn't here looking at this review--we already know how good she is, no matter what she writes. But for those of you who have heard of Take Three and are wondering about it, it is the 3rd in her Above the Line series. Some of the characters were introduced in other series' by Karen. I would recommend starting with the Redemption series to come to know these characters. After that, you will know them as family. Karen has a way of writing that makes you want to meet these people and be a part of their lives. When she writes a series, you can hardly wait for the next book--you want to know how everybody is doing. She addresses issues in the lives of her characters that we all face at different times in our lives--and she brings out the truth of what a difference God can make in your life. She brings home the message that it's not so much what happens in your life, it's how you handle the happenings. With God all things are possible. God has gifted Karen Kingsbury--her writing is her ministry,not her job!

Good book for the most part May 11 2010
By Marie Rostova - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Take Three was a good book, for the most part, when it came to story arc. It lacked, however, in that it tried to include so many story lines and because it would jump from character to character and introduce "new" (though not really new, old ones brought back) characters and story lines and scenes right in the middle of the book. This made the book feel sort of jumbled and confusing. I think Kingsbury writes her best books when her focus is on one or two characters and she follows them closely through the whole book instead of jumping around to tons of different people. She also dropped a character or two in the beginning of the book and there wasn't any update on them later. I found myself skim reading and skipping paragraphs so that I could find out what was happening to the characters.

Also, did anyone else notice that the author likes to end most all of her chapters with one power packed sentence? Try it - go look at the end of every chapter of your book and notice how many times it happens. Haha, somewhere near the middle of the book I read one and thought "wait.. she does an awful lot of these.." and went and checked. :) Interesting stuff.

I don't want to sound totally down on the book - it was an okay book (it just could have been better). :)

I received Take Three in yesterday, two days after it came out and I have already read over half of it. I can't wait to read the rest! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Karen Kingsbury!

Take a look at her website ([...]) to get a complete list of her books. They are so awesome. She loves God and HE is glorified through everything that she writes!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Take Three March 25 2010
By Robert Copeland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Karen Kingsbury's Take Three was much needed. Abortion. Adoption. Discernment. Family priorities. Discovery. Karen Kingsbury is so gifted with presentig the "tough stuff" with absolute love and truth. I was eager to get the book when it hit the stands and I embraced each moment with the characters. I have been following Bailey and Cody's spiritual maturity and submission to God's will for their lives since the "Baxter" series. Now, I am eager to find where these much loved characters develop in the next novel, Take Four.
