Lead Us Not Into TEMPTATION

Adult
Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Religious fanaticism in Arkansas hill country in 1969 leads to chaos. A family’s ties are tested but survive. A commune devoted to the Gospels and love is betrayed and forced to move on. A hate monger’s plan is foiled but not ended. The early stages of media fed religious intolerance are shown through vivid action. A comic but serious mix of love, sex, and religion is present throughout. More

About Kenneth Wilkerson

I'm an angry old man and have been writing creatively since childhood, but I'm just now starting to publish my work. My father was a Baptist evangelist; my mother grew up on an Ozarks farm. My wife is an artist from Colombia. I hold a Ph.D. from the University of Florida in Rhetoric and Public Address and have taught in SUNY and University of MD universities. Published articles of mine mainly concern Ancient Greek literature and philosophy. Two of my plays have been produced; both are philosophical farces. I'm formatting another novel (Saved) for publication as a Smashwords edition. That will be followed by a collection of stories (Some Bites from the Apple). I've just completed a screenplay (Murder is no Sin) that is in the hands of an agent in Hollywood. I will be at work on other screenplays and novels as long as I can write coherently.

Review by: James Twiggs on June 22, 2012 :
A fine novel, set in rural Arkansas at the end of the sixties, with a rich cast of characters and overlapping plot lines, all of them engaging. Mr. Wilkerson knows his places and his people very well. Authentic, well-written, funny and often hilarious, this is a book that pleases on many levels. I recommend it highly. --James Twiggs
