The Singing Junk-Man
Stories of Faith and Hope and Humor
Truman H. Brunk

Summary: Following his well-received first book, That Amazing Junk-Man (DreamSeeker Books, 2007, honored by Mennonite Weekly Review serialization), this sequel continues to pass on Brunk’s life and ministry. A natural story-teller, Brunk draws upon a lifetime of personal experiences with many age groups, and people from a wide variety of backgrounds. These are stories of humor, grace, and hope.

“Hankering for a double shot of inspiration in these troubled times? You’ll resonate to these heartfelt reports of common people doing uncommon things and, in the process, offering living proof that ‘God doesn’t make junk.’”
Jim Bishop, Columnist; Public Information Officer, Eastern Mennonite University

The Singing Junk-Man records anecdotes from Brunk’s life and thoughts growing out of his forty-plus years of pastoring and mentoring. Read how his own God-encounters propelled him to reach out and influence others.” —Barbara Borntrager, Author, A Mother Held Hostage

Praise for the first Junk-Man book

 “Some of Brunk’s stories are part Garrison Keillor and part Mark Twain. Filled with pathos, humor, and the Holy Spirit, these parables will enrich the lives of his readers.” —Gerald W Kaufman, L. Marlene Kaufman, Counselors and Authors

“In these narratives—and in the presence of the seasoned pastor recounting them—we discover that the wall between this world and the heavenly realm is incredibly thin.” —Wendy Miller, Author, Jesus our Spiritual Director

“These delightful reflections reveal the heart and mind of a beloved pastor who has mentored thousands of students, leaders, and congregational members.” —Loren Swartzendruber, President, Eastern Mennonite University

Market: Anyone interested in simple, moving, and often humorous interweavings of a pastor’s stories and life experiences with lessons from Scripture; readers who enjoyed That Amazing Junk-Man.
