Josh Mason is the pastor of a small, rural Baptist church. He’s content with his quiet life of serving his church and community, enjoying time with his wife and son, and contemplating scripture. Then vagabond Dave Johnson challenges Josh to a test of spiritual warfare. In a very short time, Josh questions his sincerity as a follower of Jesus, realizes he and his wife have a secret that has risky consequences, and understands he needs to mature more in his faith.
As Josh and Dave push each other in Spiritual warfare, they touch on Christian theology, biblical authority, pastor and church criticism, contemporary issues, and sincere discipleship. And one of them rediscovers the heart of faith in Christ.
