Overview

Dr. Coleman Matthews is the pastor of a large, predominantly white church in Mobile, Alabama. Hanging on by a thread emotionally, Coleman reluctantly seeks psychotherapy to try to overcome the depression he has been trying to deny for months. At the same time, he finds himself embroiled in the greatest crisis of his ministry when he plans to hire the first African American minister in his church's long history. Faced with opposition by an administrator, the heavy handed tactics of a well-to-do church member, and the looming threat of a church split, Coleman must somehow find the courage to follow through on what he believes to be right. As the story unfolds, the reader will gain access to an intimate portrait of the life of a Southern Baptist pastor as he takes on a daunting challenge and struggles to stay true to his calling.
