Big disappointment Sep 19, 2007
After Signs and Wonders I was expecting something better. I understand the author wanted to show the downward side of community but the thing was there was little if any true Christian behavior among these people. Certainly there was no leadership from their pastor. I realize he was sort of burned out but it seemed he wasn't in the habit of calling them back from unChristian talk and/or behavior. Disappointing to say the least.
I'm hooked on Harmony Apr 11, 2007
This was the first Harmony book I read by P. Gulley and now I am hooked on them! I try not to laugh out loud in public, but people wonder why I am smiling so much. I want to read them all.
This book lets you feel Gods presents. Jan 12, 2007

Sam has a crisis of faith Nov 13, 2006
Sam Gardner is totally disillusioned with his Quaker church in Harmony, Indiana. The elders want to use the church's money for a gymnasium instead of helping the poor and needy. On top of that, Sam is gradually losing his faith in God. Despite his admission of unbelief to the elders of the church, they decide to keep him on as pastor. Meanwhile one of the devout couples of the church win the lottery and wrestle with the question as to whether they should accept the money. Another family is bereft when the mother in the home deserts them in order to run off with another man. Author Philip Gulley takes these plot threads and gently weaves them into a gentle and amusing tapestry of the lives of a group of Quakers is central Indiana. He pokes fun at religious institutions and people, but does so with a gentle and loving spirit. For those who enjoy tales of small towns and the people who live there, this is a recommended series.
