The story, as told in The BOOK, tells the tale of the Reverend Peter Simon Christianson who sets out on a mission from God to make disciples of all nations. He is on his way north on Christmas Eve when a blizzard and an accident strands him in the Vermont woods. He makes his way to a mysterious cottage where he is taken in by Doctor Ball, an equally mysterious old man. While waiting for the storm to end, Peter and his host engage in friendly debate over questions such as the existence of God with Peter defending the faith and Doctor Ball acting as Devils Advocate.

In the process, Peter meets Abaddon, the Angel of Death who is to be his nemesis throughout the book, challenging his faith. Peter eventually finds his way to the church and to his new life as a country pastor where he encounters other mysterious characters: Mother Ash, the old pastors widow- Phineas Uriah Du, the little man with the big brain- Aradia Dawkins, the beautiful and brilliant musician- Little Zoe Potter, the child of grace and beauty- and the Burke Family, Big Joe, Mary, and their son Billy soon to be deployed to the Middle East.

A provocative supporting cast feature: Mark McGuire, an Irish Catholic priest- Jacobus Ben David, a Jewish rabbi- Abu Bakr, a Muslim imam- Yitzhak Goldman, a young physician- Felix Mendelsohn (yeah, really)- a post-doc researcher- Doctor Hayward, a crusading professor- and, a gaggle of church/synagogue/mosque ladies- not to mention two guppies named Adam and Eve. Follow the adventures of the Reverend Peter Simon Christianson through twelve seasons and one hundred and ten episodes as he pursues his dream to make disciples of all nations and as he encounters the perils of dreaming.
