Another theological novel in the series that began with A Journey in Grace. This volume continues the story of Ira Pointer, this time instructing a study group at seminary about a new revival which has begun on campus. Is it for real? Or is it fanaticism? Controversy swirls around the events as a careful theological analysis is done concerning the movement and its practices.
One of Ira’s students at the seminary challenges him to attend a new kind of revival, full of great excitement and emotion. A study group at the seminary begins to probe the theological basis behind the movement. An old friend reappears in Ira’s life, in the role of the leading evangelist of this fresh emotional explosion.
As controversy stirs on campus, Ira begins to get pressured to resign from the faculty, as some strenuously object to his insistence on a theological analysis of the movement and its practices.
The power and providence of God delivers Ira from this situation, averting both serious vocational and bodily tragedy, as he waits, trusting God to move and glorify His name in a set of almost impossible circumstances. Dink stands with him through the whole journey, and when it is over, a threat for the future still lingers, bug God has clearly given them victory in the struggle to stand for truth.
