Seminary failed to train LaRuth to help her boss lead a revival for people rattled by earthquake predictions and fervent to support Desert Shield. A former Hot Springs bathhouse masseuse accustomed to “visualizing world peace,” she cringes at Jack’s charismatic marketing of faith and resists welcoming his old friend Lila, who’s bent on saving everyone for the Rapture. Reluctant to rig a giant American flag and run the mist machine, LaRuth sends up jokes rather than prayers. Unexpectedly invited to serve as a “hands on healer,” she’s shocked to see her faith in romance, thought forever lost, restored.
