Synopsis: Heaven Help Us! is a wildly funny yet deeply serious novel. While revealing the outrageous going on inside churches and synagogues in the name of God, Herbert Tarr shows what religion can be when people unit to help heaven.
Heaven Help Us! is also about Gideon Abel – a young, handsome and amazingly unmarried rabbi who comes to his first pulpit determined to show his unwilling congregation the way to religion. But the congregation seems to be concerned with everything but religion – or getting it.
Gideon’s strongest ally is the Reverend Vernon Rutherford pf nearby St. James Episcopal Church. Both men find that it is no easy task to be a prophet on the payroll, especially since a clergyman is the only professional whose clients can gang up at the end of the year and cancel him.
