A storm of rebellion is gathering, and its dark clouds overshadow Yale College.

First-year student Asa Rush isn't surprised that he's one of a handful of Christians on campus. After all, he's been recruited by President Timothy Dwight to help bring revival to the school. Once a bastion of faith, Yale is now a hotbed of atheism, following on the tails of the popular French revolution.

But fellow student Eli Cooper is determined to make Asa's life miserable -- especially when both men fall in love with the sensuous, wealthy, and mysterious Annabelle Byrd. Just when Asa thinks things can't get worse, Dr. Dwight charges Asa with a shocking commission that shakes him to the core.

As America, barely two decades old, faces its first divisive presidential election, voters arm themselves in anticipation of the outcome. Asa and Eli are caught in the eye of the storm. Is the battle political or spiritual? Will the nation choose revolution or revival? And when the winds subside, who will be left standing?

Inspired by actual revival events, this third book in a series of four explores the personal and spiritual upheaval that occurs when the Holy Spirit stirs the waters of our souls.
