It Takes More Than Preaching
In this novel, Jon McKissock and his family arrive in the rural neighborhood of Five Forks in central North Carolina. After graduating from Duke Divinity School in 1956 and serving his first church, he is eager to begin his second appointment as a Methodist minister. His goal is to apply his own brand of religion there. Jodie is his loyal wife, and together they struggle to raise their sons as he juggles the demands of a heavy schedule of ministry with his passion for truth. Pastor McKissock deals with issues such as rape, incest, teenage sex, child abuse, racism and threats to his own family, and balances the delicate mix of spiritual leader and servant to his fellow man in a powerful way. The author, Benjamin Frazier, has written several books, lives in Asheboro and is a Randolph EMC member. E-book designed by Village Printing in Asheboro. Available on Kindle, 236 pages, $3.99.
