BOOK DESCRIPTION: Newly ordained, Michael Spurlock’s first assignment is to pastor All Saints, a struggling church with twenty-five devoted members and a mortgage well beyond its means. The best option appears to be closing the church and selling the property. But when All Saints hesitantly risks welcoming a community of Karen refugees from Burma, the coming together of two groups from opposite sides of the planet into one community under God ultimately becomes the salvation of both and the true miracle of All Saints. Discover the true story that inspired the Sony Affirm movie.

The missionary kid boarding school I attended in the Venezuelan Andes put great emphasis on proper composition (we were doing term papers with footnotes in junior high), and we spent far too much time writing to ever daydream about it. I was newspaper editor and yearbook copy editor in high school. In college I did some short stories, then as a young missionary, my writing was mainly prayer letters and ministry material.

But in a country where political and religious injustice runs rampant, the cost of either may be higher than they realize. Will any one of them be willing to pay the ultimate price?
