The Search Committee

The Search Committee
Tim Owens

The story involves seven people who have been chosen to pick a new pastor for their church. They drive to each church and go in one by one so the church doesn't know they are evaluating the pastor. Each person has a chance to tell their story and why they are in this small southern town.

The story flowed smoothly, but at times slowly as the church committee searches for a pastor that will help their church grow. It was hard for me to keep track of all of the different lives and what was happening to each person. But the characters were fun and real to life. I enjoyed listening to them talk about some of the towns they visited or went through since I've lived in or near quite a few of them.

As they visited each church the author has the pastor give a sermon so the search committee can evaluate him. Some of the sermons were really good. This book is worth a read just for those sermons alone. But it also has an amazing ending about why we are here and what our purpose in life is all about. All in all, despite the slow start, it was a great book and I am glad that I read it.

I received this book free of charge from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review.
