FaithWords Ir-rev-rend: Christianity Without the Pretense, Faith Without the Facade

Whatever you may think about the "typical" pastor, throw it out. Do they make mistakes? Yes. Bad decisions? Yes. Commit sin and experience severed relationships? Yes and yes. Pastor Greg Surratt isn't perfect, and he unashamedly tells the stories in this memoir that have strengthened his faith. He writes that the choice to follow Christ is never clean, is often scary, is usually clothed in mystery, and is always an adventure.

some people, God appears in dark, dirty, lonely, or just plain odd places. Greg found God while huddled under a grand piano, hiding from overzealous friends and family trying to accost him during an altar call at a Pentecostal revival. So began a life of sharing stories of God's endlessly creative and often surprising work and seeing God's transforming power in unexpected ways. Despite years of vocational ministry, Greg never underestimates the power of divine/human encounters in some of the least "churchy" places on earth.

Humorous, insightful, and challenging, IR-REV-REND is a revealing and joyous look at real-life Christian living. As Greg himself affirms, if God can use his missteps and blunders, God can use anybody's.
