Abstract:

Jordan Riley has made it his life's mission to battle public acknowledgement and exercise of religion. However, when he comes back to Bethany to tear down a controversial Jesus statue in a public park, he finds himself reliving his faith-filled past and the childhood trauma that drove him from God. When the leading voice of the opposing townspeople turns out to be his former best friend Faith Evans, Jordan struggles between his current doubts and the God he once trusted.

After suffering the loss of his mother and separation from his sister, Jordan Riley fills the holes in his soul with anger. Rejecting the God he leaned on as a youth, Jordan sues his hometown to have a statue of Jesus removed from a public place. The conflict causes him to cross paths with a spirited newscaster named Faith, who opposes Jordan's suit in surprising ways.
