The people portrayed here are the kind who might be encountered by any journeyman pastor or priest. The Superior who ran afoul of the institution. The old man who found inspiration in a courageous Vietnam veteran. The ex-football coach no longer able to speak; and the young seminarian forced to work for a mercenary parish pastor.

About the author (2004)

Forrest Johnson was born in Chicago, Illinois. He has served as a pastor of churches in the Middle West, New England, and Texas. He began writing poetry, essays, and stories while in the Navy during world War II. In addition to his work in the church, he has been an actor, television and radio commentator, and a practicing politician. The stories in this collection have been called Chekhovian by some readers as they seek to probe the heights and depths of human experience, as seen through the eyes of a journeyman parson. Mr. Johnson works and writes on a small ranch in western New Mexico.
