Whatever you may think about the ‘typical’ pastor, throw it out. Do they make mistakes, bad decisions, commit sin and experience severed relationships? Yes to all of those and Greg Surratt isn’t perfect as he proves in the stories 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. For some people, God appears in dark, dirty, lonely, or plain odd places – he found God while under a grand piano and 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 ministry, Greg never underestimates the power of divine/human encounters in some of the least ‘churchy’ places on earth. Humorous, insightful and challenging, this 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
