The Fighting Preacher by T. C. Christensen

$19.99
When Willard and Rebecca Bean are called as missionaries in 1915 to work the Smith family farm in Palmyra, they are welcomed with death threats and a bounty on their heads. But Willard, a former world middle-weight boxing champ, isn't about to take any guff. Though a staunch Christian, he doesn't really believe in "turning the other cheek" and is more than willing to defend his faith and family with his fists. But Willard feels inspired to try a new approach to taking on the unwelcoming town. This is a moving David vs. Goliath story that will make you laugh, cry, and cheer for the underdog.
