But how God eventually forgives, and turns the tragediesMoreAdvocate exposes the most delicate of subjects, that of an immoral preacher, and shows the fallout from his sin in his own life as well as in the lives of those strewn behind him in his wake. But how God eventually forgives, and turns the tragedies into triumphs, is a story that will touch millions and will stand the test of time. Both the story and the writing are gripping.The Reverend Daniel Howard Sutterhall has a secret. Actually, he’s had numerous secrets—brunets, several blonds, and a red head. But when he is caught in the act with the church secretary by several teens in his current church, he resorts to an Academy-award-winning performance to duck the heat. He turns the tables on the teens, accusing them of the very thing they found him doing. His theatrics convince parents and church members alike, eventually placing the teenagers under such pressure that the young woman commits suicide (or so it would appear) over being wrongly accused, and the boy is killed in a drunken car wreck while fleeing from the police.The preacher seems to have gotten away with the sham until Johnny Chandler comes home from college for the funeral of his kid brother. While home John learns the truth, tracks down the preacher, and pummels him in the parsonage driveway. But Johnny derives little satisfaction from beating the pastor. In church the following Sunday John exposes the preacher and vows to get even with preachers, Christianity, and even God himself over his brothers death. He openly calls on Satan for help to achieve this goal. But this is only the beginning!
