    Jacob’s idyllic life is shattered when his young daughter is killed in a dreadful accident. Locked in a crisis of faith, he sets out to find God to ask why he allowed her death to occur. He wonders if God even exists, or which religion is the one path to reach him.To find answers, Jacob passes through the Ancient Gates of Abraham and wanders down the prejudiced roads in the Kingdom of Religious Confusion. He is confronted with the challenge of keeping an open mind as he meets the righteous, the devout, and the unbelievers. Jacob comes away from each meeting with a deeper understanding of individual choice. Despite this, he grows more confused with every encounter. Is God real? Or is God just a figment of imagination man needs to maintain sanity and provide a sense of purpose? Jacob learns to find the truth is difficult. What he discovers, however, is beyond what he ever imagined.
