Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Teenage Steven and his father, Corey, take to the road with a Bible, an old army tent, and less than the best of intentions. Tired of being poor, Steven's father is certain that preaching the Word of the Lord is the easy way to fame and fortune. But just when they've got their act down pat and the money is rolling in, Steven and Corey begin to realize that what they'd originally thought of as aand#160;harmless lieand#160;is all about avarice and power and, ultimately, guilt.

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;

Each book includes a reader's guide.

Synopsis:

A highly unusual adventure about a father, a son, and their struggle to do what's right

Synopsis:

A stolen Bible from a cheap motel, an old army tent, and some phony preaching. That's all it takes to turn Cory's life of poverty into bags of money. His son, Steven, is at first embarrassed by the way his father dupes faithful country folks into giving him money, but eventually he learns to love the "hustle". How long can their desperate charade last? "A sincere and thoughtful story about spiritual growth".--The Bulletin.
