Outlaw Marshal


While on vacation, I read Outlaw Marshal by Al and Joanna Lacy. (First installment of the Return of the Stranger Series)

It's a Christian Western -- an unusual blend reminding me of Louis L'Amour, The Lone Ranger, Mary Poppins, Matt Dillon (the Gunsmoke guy -- not the actor), Florence Nightingale, and Bob Jones.

John Brockman, the gun-slingin' Baptist Colorado Marshal, rides around helping poor folks in crisis, and quoting salvation Gospel verses.
I included Mary Poppins in the above list, because Marshal Brockman is "practically perfect in every way." The crowds "ooh and aw" as our hero rides off into the sunset. A little too syrupy for my taste, but a fun read nevertheless.
