This Is the Church... is a powerful, entertaining novel about the trials and triumphs of Our Father's Evangelical Church of Monument, California. The town's namesake is a 100-foot, Mount Rushmore-like carving of the left half of Rudolph Valentino's face from his 1921 movie, The Sheik. The main character is Ian Block, son and grandson of present and former deacons at the church. Ian tells of his very first impressions of the church, starting in the second grade, and its impact on his young life. He is greatly influenced by his fifth- and sixth-grade Sunday school teacher, the portly "Synopsis" Sid Barrington. As Ian grows up, he discovers that his adult foundation is in fact the lessons learned from his Sunday school days, especially those from Sid Barrington. From church splits to first kiss, from solving the mystery of his grandfather's defection from the church to coming to grips with mid-life, This Is the Church... touches on the life lessons flung at anyone who has ever been involved with a local church: friendships, loyalty, accountability, racism, sexuality, marriage, politics, tithing, and evangelism. This Is the Church... is also a heartfelt tribute to the backbone of the local church-the Sunday school-and to everyone who has even been, or ever will be, a committed Sunday school teacher-heroes and heroines of the twenty-first century.
