What kind of preacher is a good-natured practical jokester one moment and a monofocused, passionate soul-winner the next?

This book of anecdotes from the life of popular South Texas pastor Joe E. Brumbelow shoots down the image of the straight-laced, stereotypical clergyman and shows the serious and funny sides of a minister, husband, father, outdoorsman, and friend.

The author—Brumbelow's middle son, David—shares vignettes, observations, and sermon illustrations that will intrigue pastors and ardent churchgoers as well as those who never have set foot inside of a place of worship.

The stories are to-the-point, easy reading. If one tale doesn't capture your imagination, hang on for the next!

Although this one-of-a-kind pastor was felled by a tragic fishing accident, David's useful portrait enables even those who did not know his dad to be blessed by Joe's life and ministry.

Author David Brumbelow is pastor of Northside Baptist Church in Highlands, TX. Besides being in the ministry, he follows in his father's footsteps by enjoying gardening, hunting, fishing, and canoeing.

Take a look at what others are saying this marvelously entertaining yet powerful life story of a much-loved pastor:

"Dear David, Thank you, my friend, for the finished product —The Wit and Wisdom of Pastor Joe Brumbelow. I spent much time this morning reading, smiling, amen-ing, and just nodding my head.

”I laughed, I wept, I praised God repeatedly in its reading. I think you will too! This is the kind of book you can sit down and read from ‘kiver to kiver’ (and many will, too engrossed to put it down), but at the same time it is the kind you can read a little, quit, pick it up later and not miss a beat. Or you could pick it up and start reading any place: front, back or middle. We heartily recommend it!”—Dr. R. L. Sumner, The Biblical Evangelist, North Carolina.
