Hometown Prophet

This past weekend, I had the privilege of reading Hometown Prophet, a fascinating novel by Nashville author, Jeff Fulmer.

It's the story Peter Quill, an unemployed, aimless, young man who moves back home with his overbearing mother -- and begins to have vivid dreams that come true.  Quite a buzz follows, as Peter's dreams increase in number and scope, and events unfold just as he predicted.

When Peter's prophecies go a different direction than expected, challenging the bias of people in the community, he finds himself in a firestorm of controversy.

In some ways, one could say this book is a critique of the evangelical subculture, written from the balcony.  It gave me a fresh perspective and good food for thought.

Within the first few pages, the book drew me in, and I couldn't put it down -- a sign of good authorship.  .I stayed up late Sunday night, and ignored the Olympics, just to see how our hero, Peter, was going to land.
