Delightful novel. Pastor Gus is childless and age 50, haunted by the desire to leave a worthy Christian legacy behind when he dies. He doesn't want to be famous. He just wants to leave something that will help people for years after he leaves the scene. The trouble is that he doesn't know what that legacy should be. B.L. ZeBubb has other ideas. Having failed with Job, he plans to make good this time by seducing Pastor Gus into selling his soul. The good pastor's desire for a legacy should make an irresistible bait. The result is something like a blend of the book of Job with The Screwtape Letters, ironically comic, always accurate theologically, and continually interesting under Roger Bruner's accomplished hand. Excellent satire by an accomplished wordsmith.

Pastor Gus Gospello is a lovable pastor going through a mid-life crisis, happily married but childless, who wants more than anything to leave a legacy. It is that desire that opens him up to the temptation of striking a deal with the devil, aka B.L.ZeBubb. The Devil and Pastor Gus is a whimsical allegory on the Bible’s book of Job. It is filled with subtle and not so subtle humor while also engaging the reader with the significant subjects of temptation, faith, and forgiveness. It is a very enjoyable story that entertains and explores the spiritual realm in which we all live.
