In His Name: A Play In Three Acts“Some people can justify anything in His name, even murder!”Stephen believes he’s a Christian. He has no reason to doubt that he is. He works very hard to make sure that everything he does is sanctioned by God in the Bible. Even when he kills people, he assures himself that God has approved the reason and method of death. But in spite of all his spiritual precautions, he hits a pretty deep pothole in his road to purity. He runs afoul of the local crime family. To avoid the unpleasantness heading his way, he migrates from New York City to a small town where he believes he can just to blend in - which he does for a while. Here we meet Pastor Guy who heads up the church over the 99 Cent Store - 99 Cent Baptist - and a host of others. One of which is Maggie. Unhappy in her marriage, she’s drawn to Stephen, who has found himself drawn to her. Sure that she loves him and that God wants them to be together always, Stephen begins to make plans to accomplish what God wants and eliminate the one thing that stands between his having Maggie for his own - her husband John. And he knows just how God would want him to do it. Some people, like Stephen, can find the justification for just about any behavior in Scripture, and Stephen’s found just what he needs.But our play isnt completely shadowy and dark. We have a fun and compelling love story woven into this tapestry. As well as, stunning moments when God works deeply in the hearts of those He saves, one as urgent and timely as the thief on the cross.Youll love this play, either to produce it as a full production or as a readers theater, or just to immerse yourself in on a cold winters night before a glowing, warm fire. After all, without all that pesky description, plays read much like novels - and much faster.However you enjoy this work, though, when the last page turns and the last line is read, youll have traveled a sometimes dark, sometimes humorous, always entertaining road into the hearts of Gods people as you see God at work there.
