Overview

Jonah Thompson, seventy plus, tired but not yet retired, widowed but not alone, competent but not quite sane. See what happens when an aging pastor flies over the cuckoo's nest. The crazier he becomes, the more profound is his life.

What readers are saying,

"Very few storytellers are the storyteller that David Jones is. He spins a tale to make a point and, in doing so, reveals truth through laughter. The tale becomes the memory tool so that the 'ah-ha' moments become imprinted on your mind and can be retrieved for future inspiration."

"This novella, written with David's wonderful style lets us into the mind of an elderly minister who has descended into his own mental "days in the wilderness" after the death of his wife. We follow him through his pain, onto a literal rooftop that restores him to his sense of mission."

David Jones grew up in the shadow of a textile mill in South Carolina where his father worked as the plant manager. In the mill village he learned about hard work, league softball, church picnics, neighborhood hospitality, and front porch story tellers. At age nineteen, David got his first job running a church youth program and took his father's work ethic and sense of the southern parish into the pastorate. Along the way, he met Carrie Richards from Ada, Michigan and convinced her to give up cold winters for hot summers and join him on the coast of South Carolina. They recently celebrated their twentieth wedding anniversary. Today, they live outside Nashville, TN with their three children: Cayla, Abbie, and Nathan.
