Philip Andrews arrives on the mission field with outwardly impeccable credentials. He's a preacher's kid and a lifelong evangelical Protestant who has been recruited to teach the seventh and eighth grade children of missionaries in the Philippines. What none of the missionaries who welcome him to Ilusan know is that he's also been expelled from Bible college for his relationship with the daughter of a prominent evangelist. Despite his shoulder-length hair, which causes him to be mistaken for both a woman and Jesus before he's been at the mission center for twenty-four hours, Philip's easy-going charm and skill at speaking qevangelicaleseq soon win him a following, especially among the school children. But is Philip a bad seed, a wolf in sheep's clothing? Or is he an earnest seeker simply trying to find his way? Before this hilarious novel, which one evangelical literary agent said would never be published, reaches its shocking conclusion, every missionary at Ilusan and Philip himself will have to answer that question.n Wednesday, the first day of school, Philip was out of bed before 5:00 a.m. ai bet Bobby Sorenson hasna#39;t even thought about that wretched piano yet, a he grumbled. Mr. Bumbles ... He had slept fitfully all night. ... Once he found the room , he realized he either hadna#39;t pre- pared at all or had brought the wrong lesson plan.
