California has just divided into two separate states. Daniel Bellardi, a man of strong Christian values, would like the state of North California to take a hard stand against its seemingly uncontrollable social problems of drugs, crime, homosexuality, and pornography, so he decides to run for governor. His opponent is a staunch liberal who believes Bellardi's policies may threaten the individual freedoms of the people. The heated campaign turns dangerous as the lives of Bellardi and his family are threatened. Vote of Intolerance, Josh McDowell's first novel, is a suspenseful tale that points to ways Christians can impact society by upholding their morality.

McDowell (Josh McDowell's One Year Book of Family Devotions, Tyndale, 1997) and Stewart (Abundant Life in Christ, Tyndale, 1996) have set their thriller in the not-so-distant future, when the northern section of California has ceded into an independent state known as North California. Running on a Christian platform pledging to legislate crime and immorality out of existence, Daniel Bellardi is campaigning to become the state's first governor. Divorced mother Stevie Van Horne decides that Bellardi's ideas are what her family needs to bring them together again, so she moves north and begins to campaign for Bellardi. When the gubernatorial candidate receives death threats, Stevie investigates, only to find her own life in danger. If readers accept the idea that a state outlawing abortion, euthanasia, homosexual rights, and all pornography would be a utopia (or even possible), this book may work. Other readers may have a difficult time accepting the premise. Purchase with caution.
