Who or what is causing the recent string of church fires? Can Joshua solve the mystery before it's too late?

Joshua is doing his best to live a normal life. He is a good son for his struggling mother and is the organist at his uncle's church in Philadelphia, PA. An unexpected death knocks at his family's door, forcing him to quickly grow up. However, a series of mysterious events and a string of church fires, not only threaten Joshua's reputation, but also his freedom and very life, as the local police and ATF decide to focus solely on him. Some believe the fires are being set by a very smart individual, while others believe it may be something supernatural occurring.

But, Joshua immediately puts his hope and trust in a newfound love named Lauren. But is Lauren exactly what God ordered, or is she deceiving him in who she really is? To complicate things even more, the community revival is fast approaching, and many lives are at stake. Joshua must throw away almost everything that he has ever learned to fully trust God before it's too late. Can Joshua solve the mystery and save himself, or must he sacrifice his love with Lauren and his freedom to save the many lives attending the community revival? He must choose between death and love or life and truth.
