Faith and egos collide in the age of mass-market religion at Houston's Rock Baptist Church, "the Baptist Super Bowl.” A search committee has been formed to find a successor to Rock's legendary pastor, 81-year-old Philip Gottschall. Gottschall protects what he has spent a lifetime building by backing young Jeremiah Mears as his replacement, but as Jerry gains a foothold, Gottschall's grip on his pulpit becomes as firm as his faith. When Hugo, the pastor’s soundman, and Jerry discover their lives are astonishingly linked by past events, Gottschall fears their alliance and becomes haunted by "whisperings and secrets." As the struggle among this trinity of men climaxes, there is a sacrifice, a resurrection and, finally, salvation as God whispers to a listening heart.

Funny and sympathetic. Emblematic of the greater congregation, listening intently to messages from the booth, awed and overwhelmed by the two “great” men, flawed but still believing in salvation by grace.
