"I'm going to try it. Deacon Jones says I can have the right to run both things for ten dollars, and Uncle Nathan is going to lend me money enough to get the stock." "What scheme have you got in your head now, Teddy Hargreaves?" and Mrs. Fernald looked over her spectacles at the son of her widowed sister, who was literally breathless in his excitement. "I'm going to run a cane an' knife board at the Peach Bottom fair, and try to make money enough to pay the debt mother owes on the place." "You're crazy-mad as a March hare! The idea of a child like you setting yourself up to earn three or four hundred dollars, when your father worked all his life and couldn't get so much together."
Following in the grand tradition of Alexander Pope and Jonathan Swift, author Jim Foreman employs satire and poetry to explore and illuminate one of the greatest-and most important-social issues of all time: the foolish wisdom of following Christ in today's world.
Foreman introduces readers to his protagonist, Feathering. This modern-day fool for Christ begins his adventures by telling how God called him to share his faith through humor, directing Feathering to engage people and expose the many misinterpreted beliefs that undergird American society, all while unveiling Feathering's own foibles and presuppositions.
Feathering encounters a wide range of characters, each one representing a major theme in American life. As he meets the commercialized rancor of a TV news anchor, the hypocrisies of the man of the cloth, the image-laden movie star, and the rule-imposing federal judge, Feathering engages each one with childlike questioning, emitting flashes of spontaneous insight and wonder.
An epic and rollicking poem about the mysteries of faith, the foolishness of the world, and the wisdom of God, Adventures of a Fool for Christ will open your mind and heart to new ways of experiencing the presence of Jesus and appreciating the goodness of the Lord.
