The Trial of Faith

Prior to the court, a family friend joins the Johnsons in a series of theological discussions where John attempts to explain the basis of his unorthodoxy.  In the face of doctrinal conflict, the friend finds that his “correlated” Church view is not easily defended against the force of John’s penetrating arguments.
