A Call to be an Imitator and a Career as an Impersonator
John Morgan, a presidential impersonator shares experiences from his life as a George W. Bush look alike. With a flare for comedy tells his story. John suddenly found himself in the limelight during George Bush's campaign for the presidency. After weeks, and months of disciplined study of Bush's voice, facial expressions, stance, speeches, and personal philosophy, John was ready for his first professional assignment.
Since that beginning in January 2005 John has traveled as “the face" of President George W. Bush. He has appeared at corporate and faith-based comedic events. He uses a Texas drawl to introduce himself to his audience in a show that combines humorous impressions of the president, parody songs, and concludes with a message of hope.
Throughout the book John relates his professional experiences in his role of impersonating George W. Bush. He also includes a related personal story as he unfolds his testimony as a follower and imitator of Jesus Christ. He draws from the scriptures to illustrate the parallel to his two roles, impersonator and imitator.
The questions for reflections included meaningful and thought provoking. I found the action steps practical and enjoyed the sections provided for devotional journalling. I felt this opened another valuable dimension to the book for group study and discussion.
John Morgan and Vince Wilcox collaborated to create this entertaining, inspirational story, a combination of a career and a calling. Vince's strong writing and John's clear message make this an important and timely book in a year when our allegiance to Christ will impact our future and the future of our country.
