John 3:16 by Nancy Moser

Nancy and Sister
Five people looking for a reason to keep living are about to find it in the last place they expect... In my usual "big cast" style comes a story of what happens when one man puts his faith on the line and holds up a John 3:16 sign at a sporting event. Roman Paulson's life revolves around his son, Billy, a University of Nebraska football hero with a promising life ahead of him. But when Billy's coach encroaches on Roman's relationship with his son, Roman fears he'll lose Billy forever. Roman isn't the only one whose world turns upside down. He's one of five unsuspecting people whose lives intersect on a bright fall day.

I have previously read and reviewed Nancy Moser's Washington's Lady here. If I had to pick a favorite between these two books, it would definitely be Washington's Lady, simply because it contains the things I love best in a book - especially some good history. 
However, that being said, I did enjoy John 3:16.  It was interesting to see how all these various peoples' lives were somehow intertwined and how they were all effected in various ways by this verse.  Some started out the book running away from God, others were living good Christian lives.  All were somehow connected, not only by the verse, but through various avenues.  This book definitely took some thought to write!  I was impressed with all the various personalities that were represented - it was easy to keep them all straight and seperate from one another.  They were each well-described, so that I could actually visualize each one as I was reading about them. 
This book would make a great gift for your non-Christian, possibly seeking, friend.
