Jesus promised, "I will be with you always, even unto the end of the world." Should it surprise us that Jesus would make it to the Three Rivers City and live among us, in word, spirit and truth? And, the gospels tell us, 'He went about everywhere doing good.' - that means in your home town, too. A.Christian van Gorder takes the "cookies" of faith and puts them on a shelf where anyone can reach them and delight in their sweetness.

Great book, thought provoking, funny and a delight to read
By John T S
I purchased Pittsburgh Jesus from Amazon, and I read it over several nights before I went to bed. The book was well written and it took me on a trip through late twentieth century American history. It was a delight to read, the words and language flowed well, and it invoked a myriad of feelings in me. The book made me happy, and I looked forward to reading each night.
I loved where it read, "He thought everyone in the Steeler Nation should make the pilgrimage to Pittsburgh at least once in their lifetimes if they were physically able and could afford it." It reminded me so much of a Muslim journeying to Mecca or Christians making their way to Jerusalem.
Pittsburgh Jesus is a modern tale through legendary football fanaticism, American culture and even racism; I highly recommend it to everyone. Great book!
