Rev. C. Floyd Emerson shares stories about dealing with joys
hurts when faith is stretched to breaking point
In “Preaching from Over the Hill” (published by Xlibris), Rev. C. Floyd Emerson tells his stories and shares his ideas about how people, some with profound faith, some with debilitating doubts, deal with their joys and sorrows.
The book is about the Christian ministry, but according to Emerson, it is not a “how to do it” book, it is a “how I did it for over 50 years” book. Ministry deals with people, issues, doctrine and scripture. While preaching, sometimes he gets it right and sometimes not so much. Ministry can be heartwarming and it can be heartbreaking. The book talks about both. The overall theme is a statement of the author’s faith.
“Mankind’s struggle with obedience and faith is relevant to every society, going all the way back to Adam and Eve and the apple,” Emerson on his book’s relevance in today’s society.
Emerson hopes that readers will feel blessed after taking in the message of the book. “If they can see their own faith and their own struggles in a new light, that will satisfy me,” Emerson concludes.
