Description - Coaltown Jesus by Ron Koertge

When Jesus shows up in Walker s life, healing triumphs over heartbreak in Koertge s finest and funniest novel yet. Walker shouldn t have been so surprised to find Jesus standing in the middle of his bedroom. After all, he d prayed for whoever was up there to help him, and to help his mom, who hadn t stopped crying since Noah died two months ago. But since when have prayers actually been answered? And since when has Jesus been so . . . irreverent? But as astounding as Jesus sudden appearance is, it s going to take more than divine intervention for Walker to come to terms with his brother s sudden death. Why would God take seventeen-year-old Noah when half of the residents in his mom s nursing home were waiting to die? And why would he send Jesus to Coaltown, Illinois, to pick up the pieces? In a spare and often humorous text, renowned poet Ron Koertge tackles some of life s biggest questions and humanizes the divine savior in a way that highlights the divinity in all of us."
