I love Garrison Keillor. I prefer to listen to his books rather than read them as he is a great story teller. I love his "down home" philosophy and identify with his stories as I am a midwesterner and Lutheran to boot. I think he portrays the people of this region faithfully and
spot on.
For a lighthearted look at religious life as well as other topics, look no further than this edition of Prairie Home Companion. Garrison Keillor treats us to song and story as he explains “Lutheranism” including such topics as the Lutheran Tour vacations (you don’t want to enjoy them too much) to what makes a potato salad “Lutheran.” Filled with good humor, this entertaining collection should not be missed. You don’t need to be Lutheran to appreciate this compilation of humorous songs and skits.
I listened to this on CD, so it was like listening to 'Prairie Home Companion.' The segments of the book were taken from the show. There was even some music. Church people are a lot alike -- in Minnesota,
Texas, and Florida. It's always fun to hear Keillor's warm, but honest, perspective.
This was rather enjoyable and my first experience with Prairie Home Companion. It's also quite short with makes it a fun road trip listen.
Keillor’s voice has been entertaining audiences for decades. This new collection of humorous essays was nominated for the Audie Award in 2010
Loved it! Garrison Keillor at his best. I am so booking a vacation with the Lutheran Travel Agency.
Perfect fun listen while driving. A lil music, funny stories, so enjoyable.
