Reviews - What do our customers think?
from The Church & Library Synagogue Association  Mar 27, 2002
"Move over Garrison Keillor! Here comes T. Wyatt Watkins as the newly ordained, Baptist preacher to the rural Ashgrove Church.

I recommend Watkins' book to lovers of the Lake Wobegon stories. It is a nice twist that will have you in stitches at parts, or touched so deeply at others. In other words, this is Ashgrove Baptist Church, where the holy, ridiculous, sublime, and unexpected come together to create a charming community."
- Mary Lou Henneman, Boardman, OH

from Publishers Weekly  Mar 27, 2002
"Watkins, current pastor of Emerson Avenue Baptist Church in Indianapolis, IN, recounts humorous experiences from his first pastorate, at Ashgrove Baptist Church in Kentucky. Watkins's stories are a blend of truth and fable, fact and fiction. Some of them occurred just as he records them, and others, to the best of his recollection, never happened at all. Each chapter tells a story; in one, the author recalls how Dale, an AIDS victim, sought solace in the church as a place to die. In another touching story, he recounts the tale of how a little girl found comfort and friendship in the plastic Jesus in the manger erected by the church. Among others Watkins encounters are a Cambodian Kubota driver and a Chihuahua named Peekaboo. By turns funny and moving, these stories reveal moments of grace in unexpected places and lives."

from The Indianapolis Star  Mar 27, 2002
" . . . Indianapolis pastor captures humor and God's mercy in the daily life of the church."
excerpted from The Indianapolis Star, May 1, 1999
 
Remembrances of times past  Nov 3, 2000
Besides being a delightful story of a pastor's first ministry, it is a rich look at people, their culture and their relationship to God and His Son, and the effect on the growing of a new preacher. The characters are pictures of the folks in my small home town in Arkansas years ago---their actions and responses to the everyday happenings in their lives. The relationship of the people in this book to their pastor in their times of sadness and joy is readily passed on to the reader.
