Sinossi

A mismatched team of seven hit the road in an Econoline church van on a mission to find a new pastor. They don't agree on much other than the stops at Hardee's for coffee and a biscuit. But they stick to the call, trying to slip undetected into worship services across the Southeast—all in hopes of stealing a preacher for their congregation.

Each member is wrestling to balance their own busy life and personal struggles. And they're trying to keep their issues to themselves. Forced to spend countless hours together, these very different personalities from different generations begin to bond. And their lives are profoundly changed as they love and support each other through the difficulties in each of their lives.

4.0 su 5 stelle Take a Trip 18 gennaio 2015
Di James Horlan - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
The Search Committee definitely has the feel of a first novel, in that it's gentle and sweet (most of the time), but also that it meanders. It's about a seven person committee searching for a new pastor for their church. They take what seems like a couple of Sundays each month and visit churches somewhat nearby to their rural North Carolina location.

Each of the committee members is touched on, and we get their backstory. Early on it becomes clear that grocery store assistant manager Travis is the most visible character, and this is probably not to the novel's benefit. Travis is a decent guy, but is dull to the point of distraction, and his inner monologue didn't deserve quite so much attention. I'm sure he's a great manager and churchgoer, but that doesn't mean I'd want to read a novel about him. Dot, the lead female of the group, has her own issues, and her big scene is such that you're not sure if you want to laugh at her or cry with her. Bill was the one that affected me most, after a tragedy unexpectedly rocks his world. He was the most real of the characters, though physicist turned teacher Matt comes close, even if we needed more pages about him than we got to develop it.

The trips themselves were little more than causes for conversations among the members, while the pastors they visit do give out some interesting sermons/advice. Like I said earlier, it's a gentle book for the most part, there's little dynamism here.....and I found that I didn't need it. One doesn't need the world threatened every time after all. Good for Tim Owens for writing this in the first place, he sounds like a settled man giving this a try later in life, and he pulls it off.

4.0 su 5 stelle Search Committee Members and Pastors Would Enjoy This Novel. 31 agosto 2016
Di Rev. Judith A. Meier - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I was totally pulled into this story of the members of the search committee commissioned with the task of finding the perfect pastor for their small southern congregation. I am a retired intentional interim minister. I am familiar with the tasks of a search committee and with the unpredictability with which they may act. I really didn't know what to expect as I got into this first novel. The author dealt with a number of issues facing the modern congregation, and he also offered some predictable resolutions. It was a fun read - I couldn't wait to get back to it each evening. - but it's not heavy, theological stuff. I think that for pure enjoyment and some food for thought, this book should be recommended for every person tapped to serve on a search committee. Ministers, whether settled, interim, or in search of a call, ought to enjoy The Search Committee.

I enjoyed the trips the search committee took to check out preachers to "steal" one for their congregation. There were some humorous situations and good characterization of the different personalities involved in the search. The other chapters, about the private lives of the committee members, were inconsistent. Some I really liked, and some I wondered why the people did what they did and why they didn't put their faith into practice--praying or going to the Word for answers to their problems. Of course, all of us fail to depend on God and lean on our own understanding sometimes, but if these people were devout enough to be choosing the spiritual leader for their congregation, it seems there would have been more prayer and Scripture in their individual lives

This book is a story about life in a small town but it could happen anywhere. They were searching for a new pastor but many on the committee were searching for much more.
This book is well written and has people you know in it....or maybe you are in it.

I downloaded this title when it was a free Kindle offering, but was pleased when our book club selected it as our September title. What I found as I read was far different from what I expected, which is not always a bad thing; in this case, however, I could not get into this book.

There are too many characters to keep straight. The women all blended together for me; there wasn't enough about each of them to keep them distinct. Not only that, but the characters are largely unlikeable people. While I realize there should be flaws or they aren't believable, this was just taking it too far. Added to the fact that these characters are portrayed as "typical Christians," and it almost becomes offensive. Yes, we are flawed and struggle with sin. But these were the best folks the church could come up with to find their new pastor?

Multiple times I almost gave up. At one point the book references a play that is largely pointless as characters wait around for a player who never shows up. That's how this novel felt to me. There didn't seem to be much plot and it wasn't until chapter 25 or so that I even became invested in the story. If it hadn't have been our book club book, I would have given up on it long before that point. This was just a miss in almost every way for me, despite the one or two moments I thought we might be getting somewhere.
