Kenneth Keller is a young minister with a loving wife and a young son, but his life and ministry have become prey to a predator that is determined to hunt him down and render him useless as a Christian, let alone as a minister. The predator? His past.
Stalked mercilessly by the haunting memories of an alcoholic and abusive father and a church that abandoned his family in their time of greatest need, Crickets of the Silver Queen is the story of a man suffering a crisis in his faith triggered by the death of a child in his church. As he is called upon to minister to the family and conduct the funeral, God challenges him to deal with the unresolved issues of his past.
Forced against his will to deal with them by a series of divinely orchestrated circumstances, Rev. Keller returns to his childhood home to lay to rest the ghosts from his past that continue to cripple him. Set amid the beautiful surroundings of rural North and South Carolina, this story illustrates how God always answers our prayers and will reach across the years and seemingly hopeless circulstances with His perfect plans to prosper and not to harm, to provide hope and a future. It is a story dedicated to everyone who has ever struggled with oppressive guilt and unanswered prayer. It is a moving tribute to God's never ending, never failing, and relentless love for His children.
