A powerful portrayal of a modern-day pastor's dance with earthly desires--and the faith that makes him whole, inspired by the Biblical tale of Samson and Delilah.

Samson Taylor is a man of God--and most definitely no saint. The handsome, charismatic new assistant pastor at a thriving North Carolina church is controlled by his lust for beautiful women, a weakness that puts his marriage, his friendships, and his job at risk. Samson loves God and tries harder than ever to keep his temptations in check. Then he meets Delinda. . . . Falling into a dangerous affair with the irresistibly sexy wife of an NBA star is the worst mistake of his life--one with tragic consequences. Now, as he journeys back from the depths of despair and loss, Samson sees himself and others in a new light. God will forgive Samson's past. But can Samson forgive himself?
