Doug Mendenhall has learned how to ask good questions: Where would God go for a vacation What if the devil had to update his hymnal Who says the prodigal son didn t have fun Which NFL team is # 1 in the Bible How do you pray for the Easter bunny Since the summer of 2000 Doug has written a weekly newspaper column with two goals in mind. First, to help experienced Christians rediscover old jewels of truth from a new angle, so that they shine brightly even in jaded eyes. Second, to avoid using churchy words and a preachy tone of voice. Doug?'s wife says he?'s just weird. Maybe she?'s right, but Doug doesn t see why writing about something as awe-inspiring as divinity, humanity and eternity should be placid, predictable or tepid. This book contains 77 of his favorite Soul Food columns from the first five years. I hope they feed your soul, he says, even if they give you a touch of heartburn from that extra pinch of spice. Everyone will enjoy this collection of Christian parables, stories and musings sprinkled with humor and leavened with a love for the Word.
