Faces in the Crowd, 2002, is Tom Kelly's 7th book. Tom had this to say about Faces on the original dust cover.
"When the time comes for the Search Committee of any church to interview candidates for the position of Pastor, there are two very divergent schools of thought that generally arise concerning the degree of familiarity any candidate has with the various forms of sin.
One school prefers a young man of spotless integrity and wholly unblemished purity, a man whose experience of sin comes either through word of mouth or whatever ecumenical documentation he was able to gather from records available in the seminary.
The reverse opinion tends to side more with the prayer apocryphally supposed to have been uttered by St. Augustine, when he petitioned the Lord to grand him the virtue of Chastity-but not right this minute.
The latter groups feel that the leader should have some solid background in the commissin of sin before he reforms. When he instructs his congregation in the various methods used to recognize the numerous occasions of sin and the subsequent steps to be taken to withstand temptation, they feel more comfortable when listening to a man who has clearly been there.
The author of this book most definitely must be included in the second of the two sets of circumstances listed above, because when it comes to those sins committed while in the pursuit of turkeys, there is hardly a person now alive who has more experience than he.
Back in the days when there were only three states in the entire United States with spring turkey seasons, Mississippi, Arkansas and Alabama, and two of those states, Mississippi and Arkansoa had seasons thate were only two weeks long, it is highly problble that there were no more than 1500 Spring turkey hunters in the entire world.
The author's experience dates from that time. He is a veteran of that very group.
The opinions offered in this book, therefore, are truly steeped in antiquity."
