Synopsis: The message was unexpected but instantly recognizable. A voice resonated from a distance and somehow from within. Against all earthly logic, it carried a divine command. And five very different people knew they were summoned to obey.Their obedience was demanding, but not particularly grand. Only later would a pattern emerge, challenging the cultural direction of the nation. They realize that one small personal response unveiled a new realm of moral responsibility. This affirmation of everyday hope captures the attention of millions.But power and money are at stake. Malicious elements align themselves to counter the trend. To succeed they must also undermine its source, casting doubt on the idea that God speaks to people today.The public debate and media frenzy place an unprecedented spotlight on knowing and doing God’s will. The five who heard and obeyed God’s voice encounter threats. Had God indeed imparted wisdom on selected individuals? Is this sweep of events part of his divine purpose?The movement may herald a profound renewal—one that some are calling The Turning.
