Rodney Simplessohn has an accident at church one day and can suddenly see the entire realm of the spirit world, including his own guardian angel. Rodney has to come to grips with his newfound vision and learn more about the spiritual world before Satan shows up to tempt him with cupcakes, drugs, and women. If he can’t resist the devil’s attacks, Rodney will end up losing his faith and Satan will win his wager with God.
Rodney doesn’t have much going for him: no looks, no charm, no athletic ability or grace, no real knowledge of the Bible. But he does have an honest heart, a love of God, and some faith-filled friends who can pull him through the greatest challenge of his life.
