Overview

Hope Church—its clergy and its people—are quite a congregation, an unforgettable cast of saints and sinners. While serving a heavenly realm, they also have their feet plainly planted in the muck and mire of the real world. Here is an Easter story of ordinary folk caught in the gracious grasp of an extraordinary God. In this rollicking, hilarious, sometimes pathetic, fast-paced, and always entertaining journey through a month of Sundays at Hope Church, we meet a wild cast of characters in church people surprised to be the body of Christ. Sex, violence, greed, grunge, lust, and lies—all in church! Saints and sinners all, caught within the embrace of a God who refuses to make proper distinctions.

I wasn't sure what to expect in picking up this book. I am not a theologian and do not attend church on a regular basis. But was surprised and enlightened by this incredible story of a mainline church that could be found anywhere in this country. Everyone who has been associated with a church, especially as a member of a congregation, should read this funny and quirky story. You will enjoy this novel and look forward (as I do) for another Novel by Willimon.
