About the Author

I grew up in Franklin Tennessee, just outside of Nashville. After graduating from Pepperdine University, I lived in Atlanta and Southern California, before eventually moving back home to Tennessee. I now live in Brentwood, Tennessee with my wife and black Lab. So far I have not had any prophetic dreams that came true. - Jeff Fulmer

I downloaded this book to my Kindle just before heading off on vacation. It appeared to be an interesting read, and I was not disappointed. It definitely held my attention from the beginning to the very end. I was thrilled to read true Christian fiction that finally was realistic and not sappy. It was challenging and inspiring. I hope and pray that Jeffrey Fulmer continues to write more stories of this genre.

Although I was raised in a mainstream church, while in college, I joined the ranks of the born again, evangelical, fundamentalists. I even became a Republican (much to the horror of my liberal, Methodist minister grandfather). After about 15 years of this type of indoctrination, I left an Easter service in tears, realizing that what I was being fed was destroying my spirit, rather than lifting it. It took some time, but I recovered from being "born again." I did a thorough analysis of my heart, mind and belief system and discovered I was truly a devout and sensible Christian who is also a very independent thinker, with a passion for social justice for all people. I believe this is what Jesus expects of me, too.

I met Jeff Fulmer, who is a really nice guy, so I was curious what kind of book he'd written. We shared being raised in very bible based households, which I think for myself is a good thing, even though I, like Jeff, have thoughts about and spiritual leanings which might not agree with many in the church of my childhood.

The books main character is very believable. The script and actions flow well. As the story is unfolding I'm smacked in the face with the very problems I see around me, problems which concern me deeply. Here it is in fiction form! Amazing. I haven't finished the book, but when I do, I'll be back with more analysis.

BTW, I never give an author a five star rating, unless the writing is so extraordinary caliber of a Faulkner or Dostoevsky! How rare those are, but I still appreciate some good reads and this is certainly one.

'Hometown Prophet' is an incisive book that speaks with prophetic clarity - using the 'Benny Hinn' sense charismatic prophecy as a literary device, but delivering the 'Cornel West' or' 'Walter Brueggemann' kind of prophecy as content! Non-preachy and complex, I think 'Hometown Prophet' is a great read.

Scripture distinguishes between the (fore)seer of future events, and the prophet, one who speaks "truth to power." Hometown Prophet Peter Quill operates mostly in the former category, accurately predicting events that will occur (admittedly because individuals, agencies, and organizations have not acted with justice and righteousness), though towards the close of the narrative he gets into some heavy-duty laying out of "if - then" alternatives. If you didn't already guess it, "Hometown" in the title is about *home* as in the place a person basically grew up; for personal and economic reasons, Protagonist Peter has returned home when he starts prophesying.

Author Jeff Fulmer sets the fictional story in heart of the Bible Belt Nashville, Tennessee, with church portions all centered in congregations that emphasize the more demonstratively eschatological gifts of the Spirit, practices those of us in the mainline typically don't give a thought - let alone a nod - to from day-to-day. Although "any similarities to actual persons is purely coincidental" prevails, the text references actual places and events that happened in some of those locales.

Hometown Prophet wasn't difficult to read, but I longed for more colorful descriptions, less predictable sentence structure, and [pages 218 and 264] I hope future editions will spell "publically" correctly... it's "publicly"!

The release of Hometown Prophet especially encourages me because I imagine a lot of conservative, evangelical (in the popular sense of "evangelical"), and pentecostal Christians will buy this book because the central character is one of them.

Jeff Fulmer weaves recent historical facts into a well-written work of fiction. Or is it fiction? I could not put this book down; read it in two evenings. Would love to see a film of this made by Ron Howard or Steven Spielberg. It is that good!

This is a timely book well written. It SO could have happened. I enjoyed reading this author's work and look forward to more. One might ask: "Why me?" The Holy Spirit might answer: "Why not?" The main character shows great courage in revealing his "gift". The story gives us much to think about and consider. Don't miss this book. You won't regret the time spent reading it.

This is a book for anyone who is willing to question his/her assumptions about reality. For "believers," it challenges the common assumptions that the religious right is "right" in rejecting scientific evidence about environmental/climate change, believing that poverty is the fault of the poor or that religious freedom should only apply to those who agree with us. For "intellectuals," the challenge is to revisit assumptions that believers don't think or that being good relieves one of the responsibility of being nice or caring.

The book is well-written, insightful and challenging! Get this book as soon as you can. You will not be able to put it down.

Okay, I may be a bit biased, but "Hometown Prophet" is a great read. My prophecy is that you will love it!
