Growing up with his alcoholic, hypocritical father was not easy for young Jesse Hodge. His hatred of his father spread to his view of God, and because of this, he wanted nothing to do with God! Jesse first encounters unconditional love from a man named George on the same day he notices pretty teenager Kate. After marrying and having a son, Jesse continues to rebel against God, living a life of alcoholism, infidelity, gambling and fighting. Helped by the living testimonies of his friend George and his daughter Ernestine, as well as by his boss, Gideon, Jesse begins to see the love of Jesus which he doesn’t understand and still spurns. Suffering two major crises in his life, Jesse is angered and bewildered. What kind of God is this? Yet he observes how the believers he knows react, and he doesn’t comprehend their actions. All the while Jesse is resisting, God is pursuing him, faithfully at work in his confused, rebellious mind and heart. No one believes that Jesse will ever come to Christ.
