An Amazon Kindle ‘Christian Fiction’ Bestseller with over 500 “Five Star” reviews!
Elmo Jenkins is about to graduate from seminary with a masters degree in religious education and a minor in cynicism. When he lands an internship at a large metropolitan church, he quite literally stumbles his way through as he learns to baptize and bury, visit and marry the faithful flock. Think Ferris Bueller Goes to Church with a side of Holden Caulfield thrown in for good measure.
The cast of characters filling the pews at First Church keeps him on his toes and more than a little bewildered at times. The salty widow who serves up a homemade pie with a surprise ingredient. The quirky single adult with a heart as big as Elvis who deems himself quite the ladies man. The larger-than-life music minister who pulls more than a few punches along the way, and even an old church janitor with a few ancient secrets of his own.
Woven throughout Elmo’s adventures is a hundred-year-old mystery he’s determined to solve and even a chance at true love along the way. Elmo’s story pulls back the sacred curtain and allows the reader to examine the inner workings of a mega-church with all its warts and wonders. Ride along and watch as Elmo’s cynicism slowly transforms into hope.
McMillian’s Moody fast-paced novel will bring a smile to even the most backslidden amongst its readers. – OBT Bookz
