Each sermon is in the form of a story. "Brownlee's insightful biblical scholarship finds a graceful helpmate in his ability to tell compelling stories. His fresh approach to storytelling is much needed today, and I predict a wide readership for his book, and as a result, a breath of fresh air in the church." C. William Nichols General Minister and President Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) "He develops his stories' characters until they become recognizable friends and acquaintances. His characters speak in an idiom and with a rhythm, which sounds like it is from down the street or even from the next room." Peter M. Morgan Center for Congregational Vitality Division of Homeland Ministries Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) "Brownlee's ability to discern the gospel in the stuff of everyday life is a gift, which he shares joyfully with his readers." William B. Allen Regional Minister Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in West Virginia Jack Brownlee, Moundsville, West Virginia, is pastor of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Parkersburg.

Reviews - What do customers think about Excuse Me, Did You Know Him??
Gifted Storyteller Jul 18, 2003
While this book is not a novel so to speak I found the stories or sermons to be very interesting. He offered a unique view to popular Bible tales that brought a whole new perspective to the story. Not being a minister myslef the suggestions for use of the sermons in worship were not useful but the sugesstions for Bible verses were. Jack was trully gifted in the art of storytelling, may he rest in peace. With loving memory of Jack Brownlee Sept 26, 1950- July 4, 2003.
Not for me May 2, 2000
It could be okay for some peaple but not for me. It's at a verylow price so I could get it for my uncle (a minister). I think it'sgood you have it available becuase usually you wouldn't find a booklike this at such a cool book store! Thankyou for reading my review.
