Dan Keaton, is the primary owner and CEO of Keaton Manufacturing Company. The company has developed revolutionary high tech farm machinery, which has introduced major changes in farming methods. Keaton finds, however, that while he has been recognized as a very successful businessman, he is forced to realize he has been a failure as a husband and father. His family seems to be falling apart. George Caroco, his Vice-President of the Company's new, International Marketing Division, helps Keaton discover that Jesus Christ is alive and is able to change lives and circumstances. Keaton begins to discover this to be true, and finds his life undergoing exciting changes. Characters in the story experience a number of faith testing events, as they seek to expand the business to the Middle East, where poverty abounds, there is exploding population growth, and nations are in chaos. There are widespread political power plays, and threats of war ever present. Why would Keaton Manufacturing Company want to start business operations in such an area of the world as this? The story explains why. The story weaves magnificent adventures in the lives of the various characters as they face challenging and difficult situations. While it is a very heart warming and uplifting adventure story, it does raise questions and explores concepts that challenge long accepted ways of thinking about the Christian life and the church. It asks questions that demand answers, other than, "But, we have always done it this way." It dares to ask "What is the real meaning of life?" Through the characters, the story deliberately introduces thought provoking questions and issues, and also suggests positive alternative ways of looking at what the Christian life can and should be. It is the kind of story readers will likely want to read again a second time.
