It started with a simple request: to deliver the eulogy of Albert Lewis – an aging childhood rabbi. Then along came Henry Covington – a Christian pastor running a broken down church for the inner-city homeless. A rabbi, a pastor, and a writer with a lot of questions—sounds like the makings of a good book.
