Jason's life is changed forever when he receives a head injury in a car crash, an accident in which the driver, Jason's Christian friend Matt Tilson is killed. The rear seat passenger in the accident, Brian Talchek, receives only minor injuries, but he has the impression that Jason caused the accident by distracting the driver and grabbing hold of the steering wheel.
Just after the accident, Jason seems to find himself in a world of violent, other-worldly weather-blinding lights, ear-hammering thunder. He sees a great battle among the elements. A giant wave, molten like lava but black as soot, threatens to drown him until a flash of silvery lightning strikes the wave and vaporizes it into gray mists. The mists gather themselves into malignant fumes trying to strangle Jason, but a radiant, rainbow-colored wind sweeps away the fumes and offers a momentary glimpse of sky upon sky upon sky-blue, then twinkling twilight, then a flash of gold, then finally an ethereal hue that has never seen before.
In this visionary world, Jason sees a luminous figure with dazzling eyes whom he recognizes as his friend Matt, who lightly touches Jason on the forehead and then departs. Once Jason awakens in the hospital, he finds that his vision of some other world has changed his views about this world. When his family comes to visit, Jason does not seem surprised when his mother explains, somewhat awkwardly, that that 'Matt has gone to a better place. Jason's parents are separated, and there is a palpable tension in the air when his father and mother are together in the same room.
As he listens to his father boasting about his successes in the business world, Jason has an odd "spell," a startling vision of his father as if chiseled in stone, handsome as a marble statue, but just as hard. The next day a slovenly detective comes to the hospital to interrogate Jason, explaining that the young man faces both criminal charges of negligent homicide and civil charges of wrongful death from the Tilson family.
As they are talking, Jason has another of his visions; the detective's face turns flaccid and flabby, taking on a dark yellow shade; he even smells of stale mustard. Later, however, when Jason's coach comes to visit, he has a strange luminescence about him. Though he is physically unimpressive, Coach has a kindly, radiant quality about him, and it is he who first suggests that Jason's momentary visions may be glimpses of another dimension usually hidden to our senses.
As the novel continues, Jason's "spells" become for him a touchstone of people's moral and spiritual condition. He comes to understand that the vision he saw of his father was one of pride and that the detective suffers from a condition of chronic sloth. Later he will warn his sister about her high school friends, since he has a vision of them as bloated, human-sized ticks, gluttons for stimulation and novelty. When Jason's mother begins to question her own faith, Jason sees a blazing lance hurtling toward her. But she is protected at the last moment by an arc of pure light that shatters the fiery dart into a million jagged fragments.
Jason's mother calls her faith her "foundation" amid her family's troubles, but Jason adds emphatically that it is also her shield. Everyone begins to notice changes in Jason. His former self-centered, morally confused personality is being transformed day by day; he becomes someone who can "read" other people's spiritual struggles and who seeks to bring healing into their lives.
He can see that a veteran lawyer is consumed by greed, that Matt Tilson's father is being scorched by black flames of his own anger. Even when the time comes for Jason's trial for criminally negligent homicide , the young man tells his lawyer that he is less concerned with the legal principle of creating "reasonable doubt" in the jurors' minds than he is with the spiritual principle, "the truth shall make you free. But in the meantime he has developed a newfound integrity grounded in spiritual realities.
He has also become an instrument of healing in the lives of others-renewing his relationship with an old girlfriend he had wronged; bringing hope and fortitude to Matt Tilson's grieving parents; and helping his parents find a way to renew their strained marriage.
Though his "spells" seem to be receding as his head injury heals, Jason has one last vision at the end of the novel. Though sitting in a dimly lit conference room in the county courthouse, he sees his reunited parents and sister all laughing together, and he smiles to see that the room is all aglow.
