This intriguing book chronicles much of the author's life, but he insists that this no a autobiography. Rather, it is the story of God's work in the life of one particular sinner.
The details of Dr. Parrott's early days in ministry are heartwarming and often hilarious. God called a headstrong young Texan born in the midst of the Great Depression-- a sheet metal worker who had never even read the Bible--- to preach! In this book readers will find humorous recollections of Dr. Parrott's early pastoring efforts, despite a wandering cat with a poor sense of timing, a defective potbellied stove in a country church , and a rat whose untimely death inside the parsonage sofa caused a furor in the congregation.
Readers will also find the failures and triumphs of a life lived in service to God as a pastor under appointment in the United Methodist Church.
