Calling by Joe Samuel Starnes
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Evoking visceral images such as a fire-and-brimstone preacher ranting and a deep-voiced DJ spinning country music and reading the local news of fish fries, car wrecks, and church bake sales, this tale digs beneath the surface of the Southern Baptist Church, commercial radio, and small-town manhood. Seated next to each other on a bus headed out of Las Vegas, Southern Baptist preacher and radio evangelist, Ezekiel Blizzard Jr, and country-western DJ, Timber Goodman, would not initially appear to be birds of the same feather. Yet as their ride through the desert progresses, and their hardscrabble stories of childhood, drinking, drug use, gambling, radio, religion, and even violence in the 'Christ-haunted South' unfold, they discover their unusual mutual quests for redemption.
