Read full description of the books A Renaissance Redneck In A Mega-Church Pulpit:From bellbottoms and Bible camp to a career center stage, this beautifully written, heartfelt memoir, in the style of Mark Twain, is both a coming of age and American success story.
The first person in his family ever to graduate high school, Elrod made the unprecedented decision to leave his redneck region behind—the coalmines and poverty of Appalachia—and seek, instead, something more from life. Early musical success enabled him to explore the world in renaissance meccas such as Paris, Rome, Florence, and Barcelona. He also served as the Music and Arts Pastor at two of the most influential American mega-churches. Still, with each new accomplishment, he felt even more unfulfilled.
After three decades of performing for tens of thousands, a growing disillusionment with the church, and life-altering circumstances, he stepped off stage. Returning home to pick up the pieces of a shattered life, he discovered what had been missing all along.
Hilarious and irreverent, the characters and tales are as unforgettable as they are entertaining. So pull up an easy chair, grab a glass of wine, a shot of moonshine—or if you’re Baptist—some sweet tea, and get ready to laugh out loud and perhaps shed an empathic tear.
Read information about the authorRandy Elrod is described by his friends as a Renaissance man. A dreamer, artist, writer, mentor and teacher, he enjoys traveling the world, the sacraments of food and wine, and the culinary arts. He loves reading and favorite authors include Ayn Rand, Frederick Buechner, Madeline L'Engle and David McCullough.
He enjoys painting nature and the beauty of the female figure with watercolors and recently served as the artist-in-residence at O'More College of Design in Franklin. Randy revels in the sensory overload of climbing America's highest mountains. He also once navigated the Uganik River with only a tent and raft in grizzly country for a week in the wilderness of Kodiak Island, Alaska. He has completed twenty-three full marathons (yes, 26.2 miles each).
A self-taught artist, Randy began painting in the winter of 2002 at the age of forty-two. A lifelong love affair with graphite sketching provides the foundation for the watercolors and anchors his distinctive style.

All profits benefit his charity, Creative Community, Inc, a non-profit that teams real-world master teachers as mentors for aspiring artists of all genres. (www.kalein.org)
