We pick up with the spellbinding Through Gates of Fire series with volume 2: Hovering Presence.
Dr. Flash Bastion, a once prominent member of the Christian world, has fallen sharply from the consciousness of man via dubious means. Flash wanders aimlessly and determines that if God is finished with him, then he is finished with God. After an encounter with death itself, Flash decides it is time to get back on his feet, to attempt a glorious return to his garden of delight.
