Lutheran Pastor Also A Scotch Whisky Reviewer

Lutheran pastor also a Scotch whisky reviewer "The Angels' Portion: A Clergyman's Whisky Narrative" is a collection of Scotch whisky reviews that reads more like a collection of creative short stories. Isn't that out of the ordinary for a pastor? the Rev. Christopher Thoma said of how some people react when they find out he is a Scotch whisky aficionado, blogger and collector. Thoma, the pastor at Our Savior Evangelical Lutheran Church and School in Hartland Township, developed entries from his whisky review blog, www.Angelsportion.com, into a 380-page book, according to the Livingston Daily Press & Argus (http://bit.ly/1AdGqG4 ). Far from your typical booze reviews, Thoma's "tell stories, quote literature, dig into history," capture moments with his four children and wife Jennifer, sometimes come in the form of fan fiction, and "there is a lot of theology in there, too," he said. Each review is a narrative story built around "some kernel of inspiration," from his real-life experiences as a pastor, husband and father, to history and literature, to Indiana Jones.
