Riassunto: Welcome to the Eternal Church of the Believer, where devout workers operate state-of-the-art computer equipment to solicit and process the thousands of dollars that pour in daily . . . where hundreds of prayers are offered by armies of believers . . . where some people give much more than they should.
Its home is Meadows Center, some very expensive real estate on the outskirts of a sleepy Southern town, a jealously guarded complex of offices, houses, schools, and, of course, churches.
Meet John Tinker Meadows, who heads the church now that his father is secretly dying . . . the Reverend Joe Deets, who lusts after very young women . . . Walter Macy, pompous and self-righteous, who blackmails his way to his secret ambition . . . the Reverend Mary Margaret Meadows, a powerhouse in her own right. And pity poor Roy Owen, an outsider who comes to Meadows Center on a desperate search for his wife, the journalist who vanished after asking some hard questions about the inner workings of the Eternal Church of the Believer . . . .
"Brilliantly done." -- The New York Times Book Review
Sinossi: In ONE MORE SUNDAY, John D. MacDonald turns a skeptical eye toward the practices of corporate religion. Meadows Center is a sprawling, heavily-guarded community of homes, commerce and worship. It also provides a base of operation for the Eternal Church of the Believer.
MacDonald has no quarrel with religion, organized or not. But he is quick to label quackery for what it is.
"To diggers a thousand years from now...the works of John D. MacDonald would be a treasure on the order of the tomb of Tutankhamen." --Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
