Fifty-Three Weeks by Dale Stohre
What do you do when you discover the thing you need most . . . but it could tear your life apart?
Noel Garraty is living his best life. After a successful career in finance made him rich and cultivated his taste for the good life, he found himself drawn to a path in the ministry. Now with a beautiful family, comfort, and success in an idyllic Midwestern town, he has everything he ever asked for.
But his picture-perfect life is shaken to the core when he is dragged into a forgotten world that neither he nor his community are eager to embrace. And when his leadership is threatened–and his entrepreneurial instincts kick in—he crafts an outrageous, out-of-the-box vision that might be the only way to save his church and his community . . . if it doesn’t ruin him first.
Fifty-Three Weeks is a compelling and heartfelt spiritual journey that will challenge your faith in all the right places. Noel’s life may not turn out as he’d hoped, but there’s hope for others the world considers hopeless, and even the hardest of hearts may be softened in the process.
