Gabriel Black is sentenced to prison for a murder he did not commit. In a twisted expression of honor, he takes responsibility for the action of a women he loves and pays with his freedom. Black stumbles upon a "proof" of God, one involving the solving of somebody's cancer. He decides a better "proof" of God would be to verify His existence in a place like the prison he's in--disgusting, violent, hopeless. Gabriel creates a file where he stores any evidence of the divine he comes across no matter how unseemly. In brutal, honest language, The God File recounts the dark comedy of one man's search for meaning. PRAISE FOR THE GOD FILE “This novel is so thought provoking and real and beautiful that I believe it has changed me forever” —Silas House, author of Clay's Quilt and A Parchment of Leaves “A strong portrait of a man of nobility at odds with circumstances...” —Kirkus Reviews 2002 Fiction Book of the Year--Independent Publisher Book Awards PRAISE FOR FRANK TURNER HOLLON “The Point of Fracture [is] easily Hollon’s most accomplished, probably his best, novel to date...absolutely astonishing.” —Anniston Star, of The Point of Fracture “Pack[s] in so much depth...a testament to the author’s ability to spin layers of meaning in deceptively simple prose.” —Baltimore Sun, of The Wait

Alabama Attorney Frank Hollon has obviously seen the hopelessness of prison life. His main character, Gabriel Black, searches for hope in a hopeless situation. A hopeless situation that he put himself into. I found myself unable to put the book down. I wanted to lightly read this book, but found the reading sometimes so intense I couldn't focus on anything but the book. I must admit I thought the book would have a more spiritual side than it did based on the title. While my expectations were high for a spirit filled book, I must admit I was not disappointed. Frank manages to help Gabriel and others find hope in hopeless situations. When you finish reading this book you'll find yourself questioning your faith, however weak or strong that faith may be!

'The God File' is a an excellent book that keeps the reader captivated from beginning to end. The Author has a gift for injecting the reader into the main character. The story takes the reader on a fascinating thought provoking journey to determine if God actually exists. It is a story told with brutal honesty. As with Frank Turner Hollen's first book 'The Pains of April', I was left with a lesson in humility. Today after reading 'The God File' I came up with my own conclusion about the existence of God. In the process, my own life had a new perspective. I rediscovered my own priorities.
