Open Secrets by Richard Lischner
Available online at B&N and Amazon
Fresh out of divinity school and bursting with enthusiasm, Richard Lischer found himself assigned to
a small conservative church in an economically depressed town in southern Illinois. It’s an awkward
marriage at best--a young man with a Ph.D. in theology, full of ideas and ambitions, determined to
improve his parish and bring it into the twenty-first century, and a community that is
“as tightly sealed as a jar of home-canned pickles.”
In Open Secrets, Lischer tells not only his own story but also the story of New Cana
and its inhabitants. With charm, openness, and humor, Lischer brings to life the clash of
cultures and personalities that marks his pastoral tenure, including his own doubts, as well as
those of his parishioners, that a twenty-eight-year-old suburban-raised liberal can deal with the troubled marriages, alcoholism, teen sex, inadequate farm subsidies, and other concerns of the conservative,
tightly knit community. But the inhabitants of New Cana--lovable, deeply flawed, imperfect people
who stick together--open their arms to him in their own way, and the result is a colorful,
poignant comedy of small-town life and all it has to offer.
