Book Description:
Als Johannes an Ostern mit seiner Verlobten Gabriele seine Eltern besucht, kommt es zu Spannungen zwischen seinem Vater und Gabriele. Der Vater, Daniel Jürges, ist ein einflussreicher Priester und ein überzeugter Gegner der modernen Ansichten, die einen kritischen Standpunkt der Kirche gegenüber vertreten. Für den Vater ist klar, dass Johannes seinem Beispiel folgen und ebenfalls Prediger werden wird, während Gabriele fest davon überzeugt ist, dass Johannes das nicht will.
