Pastor Parker Saint’s ministry empire is based on his catch phrase, “God is awesome, and so are you.” With a regular TV show and a new book about to be released, everything is going smoothly.
However, an incident with an airline employee causes Parker legal trouble, and he makes a deal with the prosecutor to work with Detective Paul Ketcham from the Grand Rapids Police Department. Parker is a special consultant on a serial murder case. The story becomes more complicated when a demon-possessed villain continues to kill.
There is humor and wisdom woven into the story. Parker is a flawed but likeable character with plenty of quirks. One of my favorite scenes is when Parker witnesses his first autopsy. In addition, the story highlights some of the absurdities of the prosperity gospel when Parker begins to realize he’s on the wrong path in his ministry.
Because of the humor, wisdom, and suspense in this novel, I highly recommend Playing Saint.
