Three believers versus one sceptic.
At stake: Life versus Death.
Who will persuade a die-hard atheist to choose Life?
An innocent small girl? A conscientious pastor? A knowledgeable angel?
Sadly, even multiple demonstrations of God's mighty hand in the world aren't enough for this particular sceptic. He wants 'signs', proof, evidence...with which he is patiently presented. But will even these links between prophecy and fulfilment be enough to convince him of the truth?
Both the minimal but meaningful words and the strikingly symbolic and crisply character-referenced drawings are intended for maximum impact.
So whether you pause to ponder on individual pages, or journey through the book to its profound conclusion, you will find yourself exploring universal truths, or, at the very least, questioning what you really believe, and why.
