But even though their wealth and livelihood depends on slave ownership, their Christian consciences speak against the practice.When the Davidsons decide to follow their own moral judgment and God’s will by freeing their slaves, they face consequences they never could have anticipated. Risking their lives as an important link in the Underground Railroad helping runaway slaves escape to the Northern states, the Davidsons must rely on their wits—and God’s protection—to stay alive.ABOUT THE AUTHOR While studying at Humboldt State University in the early 70’s, Michael Phillips and his wife, Judy, established the One Way Bookshop—a small Christian bookstore catering mainly to other students. Now the bookstore is an important part of the Christian community in Humboldt County, and Phillips is one of the country’s most respected and prolific Christian authors.Phillips’ long publication history includes over twenty non-fiction books, including biographies of Victorian author George MacDonald and Olympic athlete-turned-Congressman Jim Ryun. But he’s best known for his fiction—and is considered one of the major founders of the Christian fiction genre. In the past two decades, Phillips has written more than sixty fiction titles, many of which have been best-sellers. Altogether, his fiction, nonfiction, and devotional writings have sold over seven million copies worldwide.
