Living with Fred by Brad Whittington

Mark Cloud is back in Fred, Texas but Fred is not the same and neither is Mark. He begins to ask troublesome questions. What would Jesus do if he was a teenage boy in a hick town? Would he play football and go deer hunting? What if his date humiliated him in front of the school? What if he was confronted with a lonely bootlegger? What if his newest disciple got roaring drunk? What if someone got away with murder? As his answers lead him further down the path of least expectance, Mark must choose between remaining faithful to his understanding of the gospel or appeasing the prejudices of those with the power to make his family pay for his decisions.

I absolutely loved this book. The characters are over-the-top and yet so REAL! How does he do that? Literary and hilarious and thought-provoking and just plain fun. And I despise the 1970's . . . I highly recommend the Fred books. Why are so many of the best writers now going indie? I don't know, but I will keep buying. This series is a treasure amid all the so-so stuff being published out there.

All Brad Whittington's books are very good. You can picture in your head the things he is talking about. He has a good sense of humor. And he seems knowledgeable about the subject matter of each book.
