The Debt features Emma Howard, wife of Abel, who's the head of a growing TV ministry. Because the PTL Club remains a vivid memory, the squeaky clean Abel is almost paranoid about scandal. So when Emma gets a call from "Christopher" and then makes a confession, Abel's thinking blackmail. Christopher is the son Emma gave up for adoption long ago in a series of unsavory events, and he does pose a threat. He's a minister himself, called to one-on-one witness in bars and homeless shelters, and a kind of living rebuke not only to Emma's youth but to the remoteness of Abel's TV show. The well-known Hunt's latest may not be of much interest beyond church circles, but she poses her issues--that is, the simple message of Christ versus slick technology--effectively.
