This is the feel-good novel of the century. From the Beatles, Central Park, and Cleveland to a TV evangelist and the Oval Office, this remarkable story hits home with real questions about current technology and the men who control it.

A covert CIA operation has achieved the unthinkable—is it part of a divine plan set in motion two thousand years ago?

This is the question a floundering priest must ask as he is catapulted into an event that will impact the course of history. Journals left after confession are proof enough, but when the FBI breaks into the church office, he takes the evidence and goes underground.

Simultaneously, scientists discover an object forming in deep space. Its behavior follows no known laws of physics. Nicknamed The Ghost by CNN, it has the ability to disappear and then reappear light-years away. Only a select group of astronomers know that it is on a collision course with Earth. The President’s Chief of Staff is the only person to have knowledge of both situations and soon realizes the presence of Christ and the detection of The Ghost are parts of the same event.
