Roy D. Perkins, who resides in Southern New England and enjoys target shooting and spending time with his family, has completed his new book “Douglas and the Reluctant Pastor: The Hell Dog and His Sidekick”: a fascinating and gripping tale that centers around a supernatural dog sent to turn his master into the best pastor possible.

“This is the story of Pastor Micah Whitfield and his omnipotent and omniscient treeing walker coonhound named Douglas,” writes Perkins. “Micah will gradually discover that Douglas has supernatural powers as endowed to him by the Almighty. Douglas is on a mission from the Almighty. He is to guide and mold Pastor Micah into a fit hellfire-and-brimstone pastor. Douglas has his work cut out for him as Micah is very reluctant to perform his pastoral duties. Douglas is the real pastor of the church. Douglas writes the sermons, leads communion services, leads Bible studies, and does most of all the Christian counseling as Micah is inept at all of them. In exchange, Douglas is rewarded with porterhouse steaks and cheesecake.

“Eventually, Douglas becomes known as the Hell Dog. He frequently gives guided tours of hell. Occasionally, he gives a tour of the heavenly realm or Reprobate City. As Douglas and Micah become inseparable, the reader discovers that this ‘perfect canine’ has some flaws. He frequently gets Micah into trouble in the church, on vacation, and during their demonstrations and marches on the capital city and Washington City. Micah is always getting arrested. Douglas is always there to break him out of jail. They frequently become fugitives from injustice. On the other hand, Douglas sometimes does some pro bono work for the police department. He wears a badge that says, ‘Deputized Outlaw.’

“Just before vacation, Micah is impeached by the congregation. Douglas gives a long-winded dissertation about salvation and the Almighty. He even takes the entire congregation on a tour of hell. When he is done, Micah has the congregation on his side. This lays the groundwork for putting words into action. The entire congregation is in a ‘demonstration mode.’”

Published by Page Publishing, Roy D. Perkins’s stunning tale will take readers on an exciting journey as they follow along on the escapades of Douglas and Micah.
