Software tycoon Michael Zimmerman is an accomplished and respected man whose good deeds outweigh the bad. He is also a workaholic with an enormous ego and a complete lack of any spiritual beliefs.
Following a fatal heart attack, Michael reaches the Hereafter where he is shocked to confront the Almighty in The Redemption Zone, a “spiritual fork in the road” between Heaven and Hell. There Michael learns his lack of faith denies him direct entry into Heaven.
However, God is merciful and gives Michael a final chance to redeem himself. If he can return to earth, locate a chosen non-believer and restore their faith in God within two months, he’ll earn his salvation; otherwise, his soul will be forever damned.
After Michael rejoins the living, he is shocked when he learns his new identity and the location from where he’ll begin his mission. To complicate matters, God informs him that in addition to his assignment, he will have to hold down the most unlikely of jobs to support himself in his new meager surroundings.
Michael struggles to adapt to his new vocation and modest lifestyle while failing repeatedly in his search for his non-believer, a search that takes him from the back alleys of the homeless to the mansions of the super-rich.
Once he finally locates his designated soul, he is stunned to learn he has played a significant part in this individual’s tragic fall from a blessed life to one in which God has no part.
When his non-believer relates to Michael the scenario that could restore his faith, Michael realizes he will need all of his own newly found faith and a major miracle to make these improbable events occur before his deadline and both their souls are lost.
More than just the story of one man’s quest for redemption, The Redemption Zone is a testament to the power of faith and love, and confirmation that miracles still happen.
