Annie and Cal McFay live a normal life with their eight-year-old daughter Avi in Steadfast, Kansas. Until another man comes into Annie's life - Jesus Christ. She tries to explain to Cal and Avi the difference Jesus has made in everything, but Cal isn't willing to "give in" to God and change his way of life. He gives Annie the ultimatum: Choose Jesus or me. Then the family is taken hostage by thieves. Negotiations get desperate. Annie can't let Cal risk his life for them, not when his salvation is uncertain. The situation comes to a climax, and the whole town of Steadfast is left to make sense of the ultimate sacrifice...

Steadfast, Kansas, Population: 3,386

Annie McFay is a waitress with a calling far beyond burgers and fries. jered Manson is a runaway whose dad doesn't support his musical ambition.

New Ways clash with the old. Annie's newfound faith should make her happy, but her husband sees it as a threat to their marriage. Jered is trying out a new friendship - a dangerous one. And his actions may jeopardize lives besides his own.

When Annie and Jered come face-to-face in one desperate moment, their spiritual choices become harsh reality. Threatened with disaster, the entire town of Steadfast must band together to save them. Will the power of prayer be enough?

From Booklist:

Moser's The Ultimatum is the story of teenager Jered Manson, who flees from his dead-end life in Steadfast, Kansas, to Kansas City. He's reduced to living out of dumpsters until a slick burglar named Jinko takes him in. Meanwhile, back in Steadfast, a waitress named Annie McFay gets saved, and her ne'er-do-well husband, Cal, gives her an ultimatum: it's Jesus or me. But it seems one of Cal's schemes-completing a collection of Barber half-dollars-is about to pay off. Anyhow it catches the interest of Jinko, who with Jered kidnaps the McFays in their Steadfast home and demands the Barbers. All is resolved in scenes that bring out the entire town in this likable if predictable tale. John Mort
