Don’t Tell The Rabbi
Book I
THREE FRIENDS AND AN OLD LADY

“SO, WHAT YOU’VE GOT IS ME, BABY. JUST ME TO TELL YOU what happened inImage Beulah, SC, the year the rabbi found out. But before I get into all that, I should tell you who you’re lookin’ at. I’m not very big for a pastor’s wife and I have red hair. The church won’t let me do anything—it’s Baptist—so I mainly get into trouble and try not to. When I say “red,” that’s a euphemism. My hair looks more like some random October maple—and I don’t allow ‘ginger’ …” And so it begins. A wild and inspirational romp in the small town South. An inside look at the relationship (with commentary) between a rabbi, a minister, and an English professor … and what the rabbi discovers long after the whole town is buzzing. If this was a stage play (and it should be) it would be a Tony Award contender! Join the rabbi and friends on this hilarious, inspirational, revealing ride of spiritual enlightenment. Don’t Tell the Rabbi is a book you’ll want to share with friends. (click here to sample this book)

Level Paths

~a two minute read I've just gone back to a couple of movies from several years ago. This time they were even better, I picked up on a few things I'd missed. One was this: The movies were done by Level Path Productions. I like credits and notice details--the logo of...

What Jesus Says Next

At the well in Sychar, the conversation between Jesus and the Samaritan woman he’s asked for a drink begins to take on the feel of drama. I find it amazing that when Jesus talks to individuals, including this woman, he often gets right to the nub, the issues in their...

What Does She Want?

This woman of Sychar clearly wants more than the water she came for. If not more, she could just bring up the bucket, fill her jug, and go back home—before the day gets hotter or somebody else shows up. There and back is her usual routine. She’s not at the well to...

The Love Chapter

To remind myself of John’s amazing statement “God is love” (I John 4: 8) is to open a topic the size of the ocean. Or to put it another way, imagine a stack of books as high as Mt. Everest. If they all talk about who God is and what love is, they'd make such a stack....

The Love of Jesus

Of all the children’s songs kids learn in Sunday school or summer Bible school, “Jesus Loves me” may be the best known—"Yes, Jesus loves me, the Bible tells me so." There's and a second verse, not as familiar: “Jesus loves me and he died / Heaven’s gates to open wide,...
