Ted Swartz, formerly of comedy duo Ted & Lee, is known for blending Bible stories with comedy and poignancy, and pushing the envelope on issues of faith and social justice. But who is Ted Swartz?

Follow along in this engaging memoir as Swartz finds his way as a middle child in a Mennonite home in eastern Pennsylvania, to his early work in the family butcher shop, to uprooting his young family to attend seminary, to leaving behind the path of a pastor and embracing life as a writer and actor, and his own struggle in coming to terms with Lee Eshleman's death and finding the will to continue his work without Lee

Swartz's engaging humor blends with his own stories of triumph and tragedy, and helps readers understand their own sense of place and how they're shaped by those around them.
