Sometimes the person you most need is the one least like
Kathryn Davies is a bright young woman from a prominent Phoenix
family. But after making a leap of faith at a Christian music fest,
dropping out of med school, and moving to inner city Chicago, her
family all but disowns her.
When Kat discovers SouledOut Community Church, she longs to
become a part of the multicultural church family. But her tendency
to immediately say whatever she''s thinking steps on the toes of
nearly everyone she meets-especially Avis Douglass.
Avis has a strong faith, is the principal of one of Chicago''s
highest performing elementary schools, and is a founding member of
SouledOut. But the country''s economic downturn has thrown both her
and her husband''s jobs in question. And Avis hasn''t heard from
her youngest daughter in months-an estrangement that gnaws at her
every day. Where is God in this?
Kat''s flamboyant zeal for living a "radical" Christian life is
a stark contrast to Avis''s more reserved faith. But in God''s
timing, the two women discover they need each other in ways neither
of them expected.
