I’ve really enjoyed the response to my novel, Incorporation. On the Peculiar Prophet blog I’ve posted the fun interview/review that Lillian Daniel did with me in the Christian Century as well as some of the responses to the book. I even used the book in my Introduction to Ordained Ministry class and the class felt it was a worthwhile read, a fitting introduction to the church as it is and ought to be.
This week, I received a letter which said,
I have just finished reading Incorporation and thoroughly enjoyed it. My husband is a pastor. Over the years there have been so many characters from your book in churches he has served. He even served with a “Simon” for man loooong years! I love your portrayal of the bishop who was such an ineffectual dolt in Simon’s eyes, but ended up very differently. Nice touch, Bishop Will!
