Here the Gordons probe the trials and challenges a minister and his congregation must face as events force their church into a harsh confrontation with a new and vital commitment to the community. Around one devout man stand a number of people whose futures, inadvertently, depend on him. There is Peggy, a beautiful teenage girl, whose problems drive her from her parent's home; Sam Johnson, a black minister in need of a meeting place when his own church burns down; Walter, a young man who has ""lost Jesus"" and experiences a compulsion to kill; and the pastor's daughter, Sue, who rebels against the Establishment.
