Danny and his brother, Sam, move to the suburb of St. Patrick's. Although they have ties with the local church, it is a group of so-called rogues at the local pub who really help them change their views and beliefs about the church. This band of misfits trespass on Parliament property, get fired from their jobs as mall Santas, let loose wild animals at the zoo, and streak at the city's Christmas pageant, putting them either in trouble with the law or at the forefront of exploring Christianity's deepest questions. These rogues make Danny and Sam consider whether the church and the pub, as well as the communion cup and the beer mug are interchangeable concepts.
St. Patrick's Church is a thought-provoking theological book in narrative form. It brings up conversation about Christian community, eschatology, denominationalism, and inter-faith dialogue and tolerance. Be prepared! Darren Mark Wright explores these issues in such a way that most theologically uninterested people can find their feet and be challenged to the core in this fascinating novel.
