Grab a front-row seat to Fr. Martin's six months with the LAByrinth Theater Companynbsp;and see first-handnbsp;what it's like tonbsp;share the faith with a largely secular group of people . . . and discover, along with Martin, that the sacred and the secular aren't always that far apart.

The author is a Jesuit priest who is asked by the author of a play about Judas to act as a theological adviser to the production. The actors and playwright wrestle with the story of Judas and whether he should be considered as a villain or an object of sympathy, the author finds himself having deep spiritual discussions with them, sometimes filling them in on religious history, sometimes just being a kind ear for them to vent to. The result is a fascinating look at what goes on behind the scenes in a theatrical production, as well as a very human story of people wrestling with the Biblical story of Jesus.
