In this compelling book, G. Lee Ramsey Jr.mines the riches of southern fiction and discovers a colorful assortment of ministers who arise out of the religious South. At once mystical and mischievous, these ministers haunt the margins of southern life while preaching a gospel that startles and compels. But their oddness is also their appeal--and part of their gift. For through these colorful portraits of Christian ministry, today's readers are challenged to think about what matters in ministry and to re-imagine ministry in ways that bring new life to the church and community. Throughout, Ramsey shows how ministers such as Roger Hagan in Will Campbell's The Conventionand Hazel Motes in Flannery O'Connor's Wise Bloodcan help show us the stumbling blocks to faithful ministry and steer clergy and congregations forward in today's world.

G. Lee Ramsey Jr.

G. Lee Ramsey Jr.is Marlon and Sheila Foster Professor of Pastoral Theology and Homiletics at Memphis Theological Seminary in Memphis, Tennessee. He is the author of Care-full Preaching: From Sermon to Caring Community and coauthor of Listening to Listeners: Homiletical Case Studies.
