OVERVIEW

Virgil Osgood, a poorly educated man, is content to run the only service station in town. It’s not much on looks or convenience, but the service is friendly and excellent. Ambitious Cornelius Alexander comes to town intending to open a snazzy Zipco station across the street from Osgood. Reverend Eugene Caudill gently brings the Alexanders into his church. Then he must wade through the ill feelings of the two families in search of peace.

ASSESSMENT

Rating (1 to 5)

5 out of 5 stars

Suggested Audience

Both men and women will enjoy this book. It’s a stroll down memory lane for baby boomers. To those born later, it’s an eye-opening adventure into another time and culture. For homeschooling parents, this book is a painless way to introduce your class to the early sixties.

Christian Impact

This book demonstrates how to work for peace within a church, whether you are the pastor or one of the congregation. In a time when people church-hop rather than solve problems, and churches often settle for a false peace (no obvious fighting), this book is an important contribution to the life of the local church.

Other Notes

At times, you will grab the book with both hands, not only for surprises, but also for some outright shocks!
