Benjamin Broadsweep by Lee Crawford

Life in a supposedly idyllic Rocky Mountain resort community is disrupted one summer for a small group of people involved with two churches, one the long established mainline First Presbyterian and the other a start-up fundamentalist Gospel Assembly Fellowship. Benjamin Broadsweep of First Presbyterian feels the need to try to sabotage the start-up project, but his clandestine pranks backfire. His efforts morph into a swirl of an unexpected but tricky friendship and multiple love affairs. Loneliness, shyness, clashes of values and worldviews, social and moral conventions, hidden motives, and deceptive, secretive actions drive and complicate these relationships. Several lively verbal exchanges expose the contrasts and contradictions between the three Protestant theologies represented: fundamentalist, mainline, and process. Sparks fly.
