Publisher's Summary

His business doubles when he advertises in the Christian business directory, and he begins to think he could really cash in by planting a church. But when the church takes off, Ryan is in over his head. (Also features Z+ bonus materials; including, author interview, added content, fun facts, and more.)

Critic Reviews

"Screenwriter Stennett offers a satirical look at a non-Christian's ascent to pastor of a megachurch in this engaging, highly readable novel....Is Ryan in over his head? Interesting narration and Dave Barryesque footnotes make this humorous entertainment with a faith-based message." ( Publishers Weekly)

Not Sure

I'm not sure if I really loved this book, or not. I'm not sure if it was meant to be a satire, or ??? It probably made me laugh more than it should have. What I do know is, it made me think about my faith, and what and who I believe in. I would definitely reccomend it to friends.

Not Funny, Ham Fisted, Disapointing

This book was quite disappointing. I was hoping for a humor filled book (and even a little smattering of Christianity would have been fine if it adds to the story)
Instead, (though the plot could have been interesting and funny and poignant) "The Almost True Story of Ryan Fisher" plot is a mere afterthought and was annoyingly ham fisted and clumsy in testifying about the bible, bible study, how everyone is happy going to church, etc.
