Trinity Lutheran Church was burned to the ground by an arsonist. When Paul Keller was finally apprehended and imprisoned, one of his first visitors was Rick Rouse, pastor of the church he burned. Pastor Rouse said that he was compelled by Christ to visit Paul and offer him his personal forgiveness. That simple and profound act began a process of healing and transformation that included the entire congregation, victims of arson in the community, as well as Paul Keller and his family. Told in an interview format with Paul Keller and Pastor Rouse, this is a profoundly moving story that dramatically demonstrates the transforming power of forgiveness. (distributor’s description).
