The Man, His Woman, His Call, Chicago

Oh, I had heard about the trials and triumphs of the great and majestic city of Chicago. Can’t say I’d ever want to live there. I am a small-town guy myself. Maybe that is why He sent me and my family to lodge there temporarily as a test of my faith to learn, train and to teach. And yes sir, we were definitely tested. My wife struggled in the beginning, but she got on board quickly to help finish our call. Iron does sharpen iron and we’re a great team as you’ll no doubt see.  

So come join me, the newly ordained Pastor Jack Riley and my wife, Cynthia, as we navigate the streets and culture of Chi-town to do God’s bidding. I manage to keep my humor and wits about me as I am called to take over a failing church in the inner city. Circumstances can get a little trying as I am surrounded by a host of family issues and all that result from the human condition called life.

This book also covers a controversial topic, that is a real-life issue, but it is handled in a sensitive manner. It is a deep emotional filled ride, laced with humor and a glorious satisfying ending, proving that if each one can reach one, we would see the change. And as the Riley family learned, if He calls you elsewhere it is for your good and the good of others.
