This is a collection of thirty-one beautifully written and wonderfully moving sermon-length reflections that read more like stories from Lake Wobegone. Wood weaves together history, legends, and references to popular culture seamlessly with biblical passages to create reflections that are both inspirational and educational.
"A modern Scheherezade, this gifted United Methodist preacher unspools a series of compelling stroies as he seeks to draw out the presence of God in the historical, the legendary, the ordinary, and the bizarre events of human life. . . . This debut collection has the potential to be a book for all seasons." --"Publisher's Weekly"
