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. 


“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

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
