Publisher's Summary

What happens when the reality you face doesn't align with the narratives of "truth" you've trusted up to this point? What if the destination you thought you were headed toward is not manifesting the way you hoped? Is it possible to change course without disrupting the life you have built? Maybe the life you've built isn't what you feel calling you, but it's the life you know and makes you feel safe. Light Through a Rusty Roof is a captivating novel about life's wonderfully complex journey. Follow along as one man must wrestle with his identity as he experiences doubt, struggle, and growth. Can love conquer fear when it requires a leap of faith?

In this unfolding adventure, Rev. Peter's life is turned upside down. A Southern pastor in midlife, he finds himself facing a daily struggle with fatigue, disillusionment, doubt, and cynicism. His hopes shrink, relationships contract, dreams fall apart, and transformative faith shrivels into a small, old box of institutionalism. As he encounters "the Others", his experiences with them are...unexpected. And their reality is challenging everything he knows to be "true". The journey may save his faith—if it doesn't destroy him first! Can he find the courage to abandon his sense of stability, embrace new friends, and choose a new beginning?

Imagination and Hope for the future of the Church!

It's been a long time since a book engaged my imagination the way that Light Through a Rusty Roof did. The journey of love, hope and discovery taken by Rev. Peters is one that we all would be blessed to experience. I found myself yearning for the community lived out by "The Others" and wishing for a plate of collard greens and conversation with Ma Green. It's easy to feel really discouraged by the Church these days, and reading Light Through a Rusty Roof gave me hope for what could be, the Kingdom of God here and now lived out in the love shared between all humans and all of God's creation. Narrated beautifully by Boyd Barrett and written from the heart by author Roy Terry, this is a must read for folks feeling tired and worn out on "religion", but desiring and searching for the love of Christ seen and lived out in community.

There is hope!

I’m a United Methodist Church clergy person. Church has been the setting for both my deepest joy and my deepest pain. For those who share that both/and, for those who long for healing from spiritual trauma you’ve experienced and perhaps even caused … Light Through a Rusty Roof is a story of hope for you. The author, Rev Roy Terry makes space hear to be seen, heard, appreciated and included in a story that is bigger than ourselves, the story of love, the story of new beginning, the story of hope made known in the gospel of Jesus. You won’t regret spending time as Boyd Barrett narrates the beautifully life changing adventure of Rev Peters and “the Others.” It may just be the hope you need to hear to keep saying yes to Jesus and his church.

Great Read

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a delightful and insightful look at the ongoing movement of the Spirit. Truly a reminder that faith is a journey not a destination.
