God and Satan have made a wager. Now it's up to Michael Steele to determine a winner.
Michael T. Steele has been nominated for an Academy Award®, but his most compelling performance has just begun. He has been cast unaware as the lead character in a supernatural drama between good and evil, heaven and hell.
Claiming that the Sermon on the Mount is an impossible standard, Satan has chosen Steele to prove his point in a wager with God. God agrees to the choice, insisting that Michael can live out the truths of Matthew 5, 6, and 7 in the ten days before the award ceremonies.
The Wager follows Steele as he copes with his career, his crumbling marriage, and his struggles with his faith"not to mention a few diabolical tricks and temptations by Satan and some guidance and encouragement from heaven. All this as Steele probes the depth of the Sermon on the Mount and how one man might follow it.
Part fiction, part Bible study, The Wager is a powerful parable examining the Sermon on the Mount and how to live it in today's world.
