In Open Secrets, Lischer tells not only his own story but also the story of New Cana and its inhabitants. With charm, openness, and humor, he brings to life the clash of cultures and personalities that marks his pastoral tenure, including his own doubts, as well as those of his parishioners, that a twenty-eight-year-old suburban-raised liberal can deal with the troubled marriages, alcoholism, teen sex, inadequate farm subsides, and other concerns if the conservative, tightly knit community. But the inhabitants of New Cana - lovable, deeply flawed, imperfect people who stick together - open their arms to him in their own way, and the result is a colorful, poignant comedy of small-town life and all it has to offer.
