Cautions: action violence, emotional intensity, and brief allusions to adultery and fornication

The story moves through tragedy, comedy, personal obstacles, police action and a clear presentation of the gospel, to give an entertaining and inspiring picture of the transition from “good enough” to biblical fatherhood.
