Michael White. Drawing on the wisdom gleaned from thriving mega-churches and innovative business leaders while anchoring their vision in the Eucharistic center of Catholic faith, Fr. Michael White and lay associate Tom Corcoran present the compelling and inspiring story to how they brought their parish back to life. When their parish reached a breaking point, White and Corcoran asked themselves how they could make the Church matter to Catholics, and they realized the answer was at the heart of the Gospel.
Their faithful response not only tripled their weekend mass attendance, but also yielded increased giving, flourishing ministries, and a vibrant, solidly Catholic spiritual revival. White and Corcoran invite all Catholic leaders to share the vision, borrow their strategies, and rebuild their own parishes. They offer a wealth of guidance for anyone with the courage to hear them.

He tends to put too many characters in his stories and it is hard to keep track. But, it is enjoyable along the way. Bad language unnecessary. I love Tom Corcoran's writing and Alex Rutledge a mans man with a cool car, the setting in the Keys is so cool. The story kept me reading every night to find a surprise ending, I can never figure out who the bad guy is. The way he paints a picture of everything he sees makes me feel like I'm there, that's the mark of a good writer.
Corcoran puts you in the middle of Key West. You have to have been there or you won't really get it when the main character, Alex Rutledge, gets into situations all around town and the neighboring keys. Kept me guessing until the end. Other folks might guess the "who" early on, but I don't try to attempt such things.
Just sit back and enjoy the ride. That's what works best for me. The book has a fast paced plot that keeps you interested all the way through the book.
The writer uses real places and locations in Key West. Jim Holtzinger. Good reading plus it's set in Key West. As usual, good Key west color, good writing and plotting that is more focused. Alex is less of an observer this time and the reader benefits. One wonders about the time line. In the books months pass, while here years go by. See all 25 reviews.
