Vic Mathews teaches a remedial class at the Blessed Edith Semple School in Scotland. Some at the school are trying to discover the two more miracles that would promote the late Edith Semple to sainthood; Mathews, a non-believer, wishes the school would concentrate on teaching the children. He becomes confused, however, when he is involved in possibly miraculous events himself! Written by

This comedy had positive reviews. I suppose I, too, would have to rate it positively. But I was saddened to see it dealt more with this teacher and his students than the idea of faith. The teacher is not a very strong believer, and it would have been good to have more conflict there, and maybe even a little thoughtful debate (without making it heavy and therefore no more a comedy).
For what it is worth, the title "Heavenly Pursuits" is the better title. Now it seems to be going by "Gospel According to Vic", but that is not nearly as clever and should be removed.
