"When a New York Times Best-selling author teams up with a NASCAR driver to write a novel, it’s a literary match made in heaven."

Faster Pastor
by Sharyn McCrumb & Adam Edwards

Camber Berkley, a young stock car driver, wrecks his car on a winding mountain road, landing right in the midst of the funeral of an elderly NASCAR fan. As punishment for his spectacular car wreck, the local authorities of the small Tennessee town of Judas Grove give him a choice: serve three months in jail for reckless driving, or spend two weeks teaching the local ministers to drive stock cars, so that they can compete in race whose prize is the $2 million legacy left by that deceased NASCAR fan.

The ministers are a diverse group -- a priest just over from Ireland, who is complete stranger to auto racing; the local Pentecostal  (snake handling) minister who raced stock cars in his adolescence; the New Age woman who wants the money to fund an institute to study angels; the elderly Latin-quoting Lutheran; the cinematic Episcopalian… 


Will the best minister win? Heaven only knows.
