Customer Reviews

  Looking out at the pews and people there. , 08/25/2011
Reviewer: Dr. Reid Huntley
A Canterbury Tales-like collection of characters from an interesting, intelligent church in a suburb of Dallas, TX. Each character is a little different, with his/her own unique traits, such as Chaucer describes in his "Prologue" to his 14th c. masterpiece. In the genre of "Characters" or "Characters Portrayed," Irving's vignettes poignantly open for our observation and appreciation a treasure-trove of parishioners who peopled his Disciples of Christ (Christian) Church in Texas over his 28 years there. One gets the sense of a compassionate and gifted pastor, with a developed sense of humor and power of graphic description. With each chapter, I looked forward to the next. The text is enhanced by his wife's black and white sketches of objects found in a church or that typify his personalities (boots, palette with brush, wheel chair) or my favorite: his own 1929 Ford A-Model Roadster with a rumble seat, in which car he did his pastoral visitation.
