A young professor of religion and philosophy is called to a prophetic ministry on his campus. A prophet is someone who has a unique and distinct message, one who sees into a situation with startling clarity. One who suddenly and unmistakably knows the truth and its implications. One who must speak out in a way that will forever change the reality of the situation. One who speaks truth to power and pays the price. He is forced to make the most difficult decisions of his life. He is challenged to defend the values for which he stands that he has taught to generations of students.
