If you've explored my website, you've probably noticed the recordings I've made at my church's nursing home ministry. I decided to try something a little different at the 11/30 service. I made a video of my song rather than an audio-only recording. I'll stick this on the nursing home page in a few weeks, but for now I'm putting it here in the hopes you'll spot it and want to check it out.
The Devil and Pastor Gus is a suspenseful and—at times—quite humorous satire.
Martin Luther is quoted as saying, "The best way to drive out the devil, if he will not yield to texts of Scripture, is to jeer and flout him, for he cannot bear scorn."
And that's the purpose of The Devil & Pastor Gus: to ridicule the Devil in a way I hope is both entertaining and thought-provoking"

Here are several of the most recent reviews:
Pastor Gus manages to make every possible mistake as he wheels and deals with the devil. Yet our Father's grace prevailed. Don't try this at home--tell demons to go in Yeshua's name (or Jesus if you prefer.)
I was unsure about how I felt about this story at first, but the more I read the more I was drawn in. This is a good example of not only the devil's pride, but our own as well. The characters were real and believable. I love reading books that, after reading, teach or inspire growing in my relationship with God. This book enforced my knowledge of God's unending love and acceptance, no matter what we do.
I was hooked by the title and review. There were many times I quit reading for a time because I was thinking that talking with the devil was not a good idea. Very interesting and thought provoking. Makes you examine what you believe. Would recommend it to mature readers.
