Wilson McCann is a high-powered CEO whose personal priorities were severely out of whack. He lost his company, his mother, his dog and the love of his life. Driven to his knees, he found God. Three years later, the nation's economic deterioration impacts his friends' livelihood, and the investors in his new company threaten to sell out. A national telecommunications firm vies with an unscrupulous hedge fund operator to acquire McCann's company, and McCann comes face-to-face with the need to commit totally to his faith and his company - to "sell out" to God and the beautiful woman God has sent to stand beside him. Set against the backdrop of greed-driven corporate espionage, the potential collapse of the nation's financial system, and misplaced priorities, Sell Out is the compelling story of a man seeking to know what it means to love God with all of his heart, soul, mind and strength.

He could feel her eyes on him. “I … couldn’t make … the … commitments she wanted and needed,” he said hesitantly. “You made a faith decision three years ago and now God is asking you for some additional commitments. Tachyons needs some commitments from you and from its investors now,” she said, her gaze not wavering. “At the right time, I’ll need some commitments too. I think that is what ‘selling out’ to something or someone is all about.”
