Item description for A Dozen People I Don't Want To See In Heaven by Frederick Swanson...

Are you a long-time Christian? Are you overly critical of others? Growing up in an evangelical church in the 1950's created the foundation for my faith. But the experience, or should I say, "the times", established an unfortunate mind-set: a most restrictive world view. Buttressed by an unequivocal sense of right and wrong, good and evil, saved and not saved, a critical spirit developed and grew in me. Throughout life I have battled against judging others, especially those I encounter in the evangelical community. The book contains twelve personalities that rubbed me "the wrong way." Though described as individuals, the dozen are actually composites. Some of the details, though minor, are purely fictional. In the final analysis this book is both a confessional and a quirky meditation on the nature of Grace. It challenges the reader, especially the long time believer to think again what Grace is. It is "Amazing" for it reaches out far beyond what we can comprehend

Reviews - What do customers think about A Dozen People I Don't Want To See In Heaven?

A good, short, Christian based read.  Aug 28, 2007

Enjoyed the book. Saw some people I have met and learned something about others I'm sure I'll see sooner or later. Would recommend.
Side-splitting -- and worth a look!  Jun 9, 2007
I howled with laughter as I turned the pages of Fred's thoughtful and witty prose. Disclaimer--I know the author. But I would have read the book anyway if someone had lent it to me. Pastors and church leaders will love recognizing a common problematic personality or parishioner in Swanson's dozen. [The names have been changed and each character is a composite of several people Fred has known.] But the best is saved for last as we get a taste of that quirky grace the sub-title promises. Enjoy!
Much to consider  May 10, 2007
For those of us who place great value on doctrine and the sufficiency of scripture, this little book serves well to remind us that I Corinthians Chapter 13 is also part of scripture. Don

Fun yet profound read with a welcomed twist  May 10, 2007
Short yet deep, this book is a must-read this summer! If you too struggle against being overly critical of others yet live in a church community where some of your "brothers and sisters in Christ" are the last people with whom you would like to live eternally... this is your book. This eloquent story is an honest and transparent look into the evangelical church community, how each of our actions shape and mold others' lives and how we all are in desperate need of God's grace.
Wonderful book  Apr 30, 2007
Funny and insightful. I highly recomend this book. Makes you examine your own life and actions.
