Poultry in the Pulpit: Further Revelations of the Vet in the Vestry

Alexander Cameron, Author St. Martin's Press $16.95 (213p) ISBN 978-0-312-05188-4
The vet-turned-minister began his second career in the late 1950s in a small church in rural Scotland. Here recounting his move to a city on the northwest coast, Cameron writes about his family and friends, neighbors and parishioners, with occasional flashbacks to his veterinary practice. He describes his efforts to rehabilitate a family of criminals with limited results. Cameron gives brief sketches of some remarkable elderly people he has known, and tells us about his work week. In this memoir, the vet has faded and the minister has the major role. Readers who seek inspiration and fortification of Christian belief will find it here. (Dec.)
