God Prepares a Church for a Storm and Has Plenty of Fun Along the Way!

Xulon Press presents a fictional illustration of a common Christian mentality.


Author Jamison Charles invites readers to laugh along with the escapades of his characters in SAVED-ish: Sometimes it’s Hell Gettin’ to Heaven ($15.99, paperback, 9781662863073; $9.99, e-book, 9781662863080).


Sacred Ground Baptist Church offers its members a convenient form of Christianity: praise the Lord on Sunday mornings, then raise hell for the rest of the week.  So it’s a bit of a surprise for them when they get a new interim pastor who wants to change the order to things.  Everything that can go wrong does go wrong, but Brother Ben manages to demonstrate a level of Christ’s love the congregation had never known before.


Truth is, as this fictional look inside the lives of real Christians [shows], you don’t have to be perfect to be a Christian. You simply have to be present! Mentally, physically, and spiritually. Now I know it and this book shows it,said Charles.


Jamison Charles is an ordained minister and motivational speaker with an associate’s degree in theology.  He was incarcerated as a teen because he blindly followed his so-called friends straight to prison.  While there, he found a Friend who sticks closer than a brother.  Through Him, and Charles’ incredibly loving family, his childhood tragedy has become his manhood’s triumph.
