What Would YOU Do If You Found Out You Were Living A Lie...?
With a well-earned reputation for being rebellious, scandalous, and impossible to work with, Father Donovan has a knack for causing trouble; however, when he finally gets a church of his own, he truly believes that his life is about to change - little does he know, that change won't come quite the way he thinks it will. When he learns a deeply disturbing secret about his much-treasured faith, Father Donovan soon finds himself sinking deeper and deeper into a tumultuous spiritual turmoil of his own creation - forcing him to make a difficult decision when faced with the devastating truth behind the lie that he's been calling his life...Was this review helpful?

Equally disturbing and riveting, The Silent Pulpit is a genuinely compelling read. Though only 30 pages in length, author Donald Allen Kirch's gripping tale of evil unmasked does a remarkable job of evoking pure feelings of sheer terror in the reader. As you follow Father Donovan along on his eye-opening spiritual journey, you can't help wondering just how you, too, would react in light of the mind-blowing discovery that he ultimately makes. Successfully invoking higher levels of deep, disturbing thought, The Silent Pulpit stands out both for its thought-provoking boldness and palpable horror. A recommended read.

By Donald Allen Kirch
A priest gives himself to God, marrying the church and devoting himself to the word of the lord, but in Donald Allen Kirch's novella, "The Silent Pulpit" we are forced to contemplate the cost of such devotion. Author Donald Allen Kirch, who so masterfully created Still Waters, Manchester House, The Christ Project and The Misadentures of Ka-Ron the Knight brings readers "The Silent Pulpit: A Novella" with the same unbelievable detail, horror and historical fact that make each of his novels absolutely brilliant.
Father Donovan enters his new parish hoping to turn around a lost and forgotten church. He confronts the decrepit church with hope, although his gut tells him otherwise. Each day brings another mystery and soon the unexplainable becomes just too much. Father Donovan is faced with a world of horror, which turns everything he believes in into complete and utter terror.
Donald Allen Kirch is an expert at his craft. His historical knowledge and ability to create outstanding prose, with detail that takes you" to the place, to the person and to the circumstance", in truly unmatched. In "The Silent Pulpit" readers are given a shortened version of the greatness of his work, in the form of a novella rather than a full -length novel. Read this story and I promise you'll find yourself purchasing the rest of the Donald Allen Kirch library.

Seriously! Pray that you don't!
This book is an awesome, wonderfully detailed and equally scary, frightening short story. My Nook said it was 32 pages and I wished it was longer but it was a novella! Father Donavan finally gets his own church and finds himself at the doors to Saint Marcus church. But once he walks in those doors, life as he knew it will all change. This book will remind you of how scary the devil can be and that even "men of the cloth" face temptations. If this story would of been longer it would of had me reading it in the daylight! Well done Don! I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read something that will give you goosebumps!
