Desmond Morehouse had long been a popular TV preacher. But now he was a crotchety old pastor who secretly would give anything to forget his haunting past. Anything, that is, except his iron-fisted self-will.

It began decades ago, on a dark and stormy night in World War II—a night of horror and death on the battlefield that left the Pastor burdened with fear, guilt and shame. In today's medical verbage he suffers from PTSD—Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Over the years, PTSD slowly ate away at his heart and robbed him of the joy of being a child of God. Now a fading television evangelist in his autumn years, his life has deteriorated into mounting frustrations and conflicts—within his ministry and with personal relationships.

As an ominous thunder storm rages through the night, Pastor Morehouse settles down to re-read a long-favored novel—Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.The rare vintage edition was a recent gift from Bert, a buddy from World War II who now is a bothersome reminder of that long ago night of horror.

The Pastor soon is overtaken by sleep, only to be awakened by a mysterious visitor named Jonathan. He has come to guide the pastor into a Dickensesque adventure through which the troubled old man is taken back in time to see himself through the eyes of those who loved him and were hurt by him, and to relive that horrible night of fear, guilt and shame. Through the ordeal the Pastor discovers the ancient truth about who he really is and why he behaves as he does.
