About the book
In vivid, lyrical, and often elegiac prose, Bolivar Heights weaves a tale of intrigue through a series of stories and anecdotes told by a master spinner of yarns. Leighton Kramer is an anointed writer and powerful preacher. Wilene Rosa, instructor (retired) from Bible Missionary Institute, taught Leighton for several years during his time at seminary and considered him one of the most graceful young men she ever saw in the pulpit where he used unique illustrations and recounted them with drama, pathos, and power. Bolivar Heights is Leighton at his best and propels the reader to discover some of the grim realities and challenges of the ecclesiastical world as seen and chronicled through the lens of one man’s spiritual journey through them.
Characterized by simplicity in style, clearness of expression, beauty of diction, and strength of thought, Bolivar Heights is marked by an evangelical spirit and Scriptural soundness. By skillfully telling this story, Kramer brings the character, Clay Keane, and others to life in a most profound and intimate way, all the while weaving a tale in which love overcomes fear, hope overcomes despair, and the incredible human spirit rises up to embrace spiritual renewal, revival, and reconciliation in the face of devastating loss and personal destruction.
