The Judge by Randy Singer was an amazing book that displayed the truth of Christianity against other religions in a brilliant manner.

This narration style also gave the reader a glimpse into what the unknown opponent what was thinking and planning while also increasing the suspense since the reader still had no idea who this person was. As crazy as today's world is with what is not politically correct and things being taken away or changed, this book fits right in with that mindset.
This has always been my most favorite Randy Singer book! The point is, this character is willing to give up his family to stand for having a manger scene.
