Format: Paperback
Mike Robertson amused his parents when at the age of twelve he inquired about the Bible and told them he wanted to preach. They indulged his request thinking it was just a passing fancy. When at fifteen he started preaching at the church of his minister friend, they were astounded at his abilities and equally shocked when approached for permission to allow Mike to travel and preach at tent revivals. It was on this circuit Mike met Janice and their romance ensued. He was fifteen; she was nineteen. He was white; she was black. Despite the racial climate of 1970s Texas, their parents gave permission for them to marry.

Mike's true calling was the ministry and he had accepted positions at several churches as he grew as a minister. Some churches were accepting of the young energetic preacher with a black wife; others were not. His pastor suggests he move to Dallas where the people will be more receptive of his interracial marriage. The move to Dallas was good for them as their ministry, family and love grew. With that growth, it did not take long for Mike to become the pastor of a mega-church. With this increased responsibility, the presence of lust, greed and threats from haters arose.

FOOL'S HEAVEN is a true and gritty depiction of the reality of life behind the pulpit. Pollard does an excellent job developing Mike and Janice's characters. They are likeable, yet real individuals trying to live and love right. Despite the opposition of being an interracial couple in the south, their industrious attitude, love for each other and for God carries them through. A great read.

Format: Kindle Edition
An enertaining look into the life of a megachurch pastor specifically tied to Dallas and East Texas. This book followed the life of a child led to be a pastor by the lure of the toys of wealth. It actually stepped back a generation or two then followed him all the way to retiremement. With many twist and turns this book may have actually made a nice trilogy (the lawsuit against "religion" could have been a book in itself). The writing style was a bit amateurish and inconsisent as some details were surprisingly glossed over when elaboration would have been nice and at other times some subplots were expolited beyond necessity. The author did seem knowledgeable about the daily life of a wealthy, megachurch pastor which will help outsiders feel comfortable getting to know the main characters. Understanding this book was a work of fiction, I did find the evangelical idea of redemption and forgiveness (without true repentance) un-christian. But that may have been the authors intent. Happy reading!
