“Brings to mind the work of Donald Miller, mixed with the vulnerability of NPR’s ‘This American Life.’ Pemberton is a thinking Christian who does not shy away from thought provoking questions about faith. A writer to watch.”
–Michael Morris, Author of Man in the Blue Moon, Slow Way Home, and A Place Called Wiregrass
