A new and rather naive pastor, Dan Matthews accepts his church call with great anticipation. But he quickly runs into deeply rooted problems: judgments, party spirit, church politics and hidden agendas. Some problems come from well-intentioned people who don’t know better; others stem from selfishness and evil motives. In both situations, as Dan obeys the life and teachings of Jesus, the consequences are severe. Dan Matthews believed he had a calling from God. Faced with the loathsome hypocrisy in his church, what will become of him and those he befriends? How does a beautiful young nurse who seems to have no heart for the church fit into a pastor’s life?
