Jack Teeter

Author Jack Teeterabout this book: I once coached and taught at beautifully scenic Hiwassee College in Madisonville, Tennessee. The campus was a place of solice as well as learning. This book is dedicated to the wonderful young men and women (and faculty members) who went to this college. "Jake's Preacher gig" is a two-part story that focuses on characters from three separate families, tracking the daily life of the principle character, Reverend Jake Millsaps. The story takes place at picturesque but fictitious Hyacinth College in Plant City, in East Tennessee. The time period is the 1989-1990 school year.

One of Jake's primary duties is to develop a drug intervention program to combat the college's flagging enrollment. The point of view of this tale is unique: we see all action though the eyes of a group of stumbling demons. Our demons do not dispense curses, nor do they commit any physical mayhem. They exist only in the spiritual dimension and use their powers of suggestion to try to influence events in Jake's day-to-day life. Their purpose is to encourage chaos to undermine Jake's effectiveness as campus pastor.
