The Reverend Philip Lambe has reached middle-age and has become too comfortable in his quiet, rural parish.

Plagued by doubts, he faces a crisis of conscience and so decides that the challenge of a new parish, and all its problems, may help to revitalise his calling to the church. But the inner-city Midlands parish the Bishop offers proves to be more of a test than he had ever anticipated.
