Title: TRESPASSERS WILL BE BAPTIZED
Author: Elizabeth Emerson Hancock
Publisher: Center Street
Elizabeth grew up Southern and Baptist in Eastern Kentucky. Since her father was a Southern Baptist preacher, her world revolved around church, missions, revivals, and of course, the Kentucky Wildcats.
Being typical kids, Elizabeth and her sister, Meg, managed to get into situations that could embarrass the most easy going of parents. But since her father was a pastor, the misadventures were worse than embarrassing. She was caught stealing Guess jeans from a donation box, and hawking a backyard swimming pool for baptisms during the neighborhood’s annual garage sale.
Some of the stories told in TRESPASSERS WILL BE BAPTIZED are laugh out loud funny. Punctuated with pictures scattered throughout the book, the stories are sure to please even the most serious. If you love to look at the humor in things, you won’t want to miss TRESPASSERS WILL BE BAPTIZED.
