Review Text

There was once an unlikely minister, improbably named Cletus Kinchelow, who brought his career to a logical climax by being committed to an asylum for the insane. The Reverend Kinchelow was led to this end by a most un-Christian penchant for seeing things that did not exist: churches that were not churches at all, but self-serving bureaucracies staffed by anointed time-servers with mellifluous tongues and sweet-smelling hands; theological brainwashing centers disguised as denominational "colleges"; conflicts between conscience and authority; a species of Protestant triumphalism in its meridional and most virulent manifestation. Every right-thinking Christian knows, of course, that such things are impossible; and so, they appropriately become the fictive fabric from which Mr. Freeman weaves an account, part hilarity and part horror, of the misadventures of the unfortunate Kinchelow. Since the tale is woven out of whole Cloth, no one can possibly take umbrage, although one may occasionally, and unaccountably, experience a little self-recognition. A delightful and provocative little book. (Kirkus Reviews)
