ABOUT THE BOOK
Riverton Town Chronicles begins with the news that Patrick Thompson, an ambitious but inexperienced young minister, has just been elected as the new pastor of Riverton Community Church, a small country church located in a rural town in the mountains of northern Georgia. The story follows the zany adventures (misadventures would be a more accurate description) Patrick, his devoted wife, Julia, and their four children encounter during the first six months of this heavenly assignment. To say the family’s journey into uncharted waters was not exactly smooth sailing would be like saying Noah’s flood was a passing shower. The story is told through the observant eyes of John Samuel, the Thompson’s nine-year old son. Young John Samuel views the events around him with an amusing blend of boyish innocence and clever insight. For example, he reflects upon his devout parents’ embarrassing tradition of naming their offspring and even the family pets with Biblical names. He laments, “I shudder to think what would happen if our family grew any larger. I would likely have siblings branded throughout their lives with the likes of Titus Zechariah or Jezebel Magdalene. Suffice it to say the salutation on our Christmas cards could easily be mistaken for the Table of Contents of the Holy Bible.”
