Well before the "radical concept" of The Shack, Clayton Sullivan had the genre pegged.

This book, which I read some time ago, was written by a former minister whose church my mother attended. It is a great portrayal of some churches with which I was familiar in the deep south. Funny and very typical of the era it portrays. Read it for a good laugh and insights to the society.

This book made me laugh out loud more times than I can count. And in the end it made me cry because the writer was so absolutely right! Unfortunately, I lent my copy to a friend who lent it to a friend -- and now no one knows where it is. I want it back because it's the kind of book you read over and over, and catch new levels of meaning in each reading...and you can finish it in one sitting -- rare indeed!

Jesus and The Sweet Pilgrim Baptist Church, set in Mississippi in 1964, touches on the issues of redemption, race, religion and income inequality which could be ripped from today's headlines. Fun and thought provoking.

A great read for fun. Good for kids. The book has a great, but predictable ending. A good moral lesson. I recommend it. Great to read out loud.

This is a wonderful story, and one which will make you think about consequences. The last scene is unforgettable.

Jesus comes to the congregation at the Sweet Pilgrim in a most unusual form. The book is very entertaining and, at the same time, very inspirational. A good quick read.
The interesting cover is what first got me about this book. Very Inviting. I find this tale to be innovative, beautiful, uplifting and sad. It's a fast read and you're getting a heck of a deal when purchasing through Amazon.
