Brown is a Christian psychotherapist and the founder of Bridgework Ministries, which ministers to victims of violent crime. Her offbeat little book offers 52 devotions that take their cues from the likes of Saturday Night Fever, Deliverance, and The Velveteen Rabbit. While the text does not have tremendous depth, Brown shows an unusual ability to blend a sense of humor, popular culture, and a mainstream Christian theology. For most collections.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
“Just as Jesus reached people with plain talk and practical stories, Sandra Brown uses the same approach…with cultural icons, catch phrases and humor, she coaxes them to “lower the shields” and allow the Holy Spirit to “beam down” to fill needy hearts.”

Dr. Kathie Erwin, Author and Christian Clinical Psychotherapist

“Sandra Brown moves us baby boomers from the swinging 60’s to the front porch swing. She takes us back to a familiar time and shows us what we have always needed; a personal relationship with our Savior. It was a wonderful comfortable journey and I loved it!”

Vicky Jones, Ph.D., Professor/Lecturer

“Wow! What a fun, engaging book! Once you start reading this book, you won’t want to put it down…[Sandy] helps us to find deep Christian insight from our rock ‘n roll, Americana, TV generation, real-life experiences…Sandy gets us out of our church pews and takes us on a magic carpet ride to revisit the 60’s and 70’s, but this time connecting lasting, eternal Christian insights from those mutually shared experiences…As a songwriter, my goal is to write lyrics that are simple, yet convey a message that is profound. You will find “The Moody Pews” simply profound!”

Ric Blair, Christian Music Artist

“Sandy has written a witty, sensitive and relevant devotional that will not only be enjoyed by we ‘children of the 60’s and 70’s’, but it will speak to the hearts of all people – believers and seekers. Who would’ve thought that Woody Allen, Dr. Seuss, and Rocky Raccoon would all somehow speak Truth to me? ...”

Randy Evans, Senior Pastor
