After attending Franklin High School in Tennessee, I graduated from Pepperdine University. I have worked at a broker-dealer, art gallery, talent agency, hotel resort, video production company, and in the public schools as a substitute teacher; to name a few. Currently, I am a real estate agent in the Brentwood area, just outside of Nashville, where I live with my wife and our black lab. So far, I have never had a prophetic dream that came true.

HOMETOWN PROPHET REVIEWS

“Can you ever go home again? What if you return to the church of your youth, only to find that you’ve changed? And what if you begin prophesying in the form of Benny Hinn or Rick Joyner, but with the prophetic content of a Martin Luther King, Jr. or Cornel West? This is the premise of the one of the most interesting and controversial spiritual novels I’ve read since The Shack.”

Mike Morrell, Zoecarnate


“This is Christian literature, and Fulmer’s liberal Christian stance shines, and while I appreciated that, I didn’t find the book the least bit overbearing or preachy. I can’t even really categorize it as controversial, because each of us already knows its truths in the depths of our hearts … whether we admit it or not. It’s more of a feel-good, love-your-neighbor journey. Whoever those neighbors are. And a fun read.”

Lee Harmon, The Dubious Disciple


“’What would you do if God chose to use you in an extraordinary way? Would you be faithful even if it involved a significant cost? What would happen if God began to speak against the popular conservative Christian social and political stands? The book doesn’t provide easy, pat answers, but is illuminating on the struggles that would be involved. I found myself caught up in the story and in the questions that it posed.”

Pastor Kevin Ruffcorn


“Fulmer has given us a thought-provoking narrative look at the state of Evangelicalism. Because Fulmer fills the story with events based on actual, recent Nashville happenings, Peter’s quest feels immediate and urgent. None of the villains are wholly evil, and none of the heroes totally pure. And so we find a world in which the old prophetic challenges to the religious establishment are as fresh as ever.”

JR Forasteros, JRForasteros.com


“Socially speaking, the book promotes ideas that I appreciate: care for the poor, care for the environment, and respect for other religions… It promotes moving the church beyond its own walls out into community, and it encourages individuals to take the personal responsibility of looking out for one’s neighbors. It also encourages persons to grow in their self-esteem as they begin to discover and use their God-given gifts (as Peter does throughout the book).”

Troy Simms, The Methoblog


“In this Pentecostal time of the Church, the Holy Spirit of Life, Renewal, and Reform calls all of us who follow Jesus to live and act in solidarity with the broken, the outcast, the underclass, and the unwanted. To become Hometown Prophets? Maybe so!”

Leah Sophia, Desert Spirit’s Fire!


“By presenting us with a story Fulmer invites us and involves us in a more exploratory journey, giving us space to consider issues and people, and perspectives sometimes overlooked. I’d want to recommend this to charismatics and non-charismatics, to evangelicals and to liberals, and to those who don’t know what they are. Perhaps as a result they’ll join with me in a prayer for a true restoration of prophecy to the church, not the sham we often see dressed up in its clothes.”

Jonathan Somerville, Took the Red Pill


“There is much more to this story than if the gift of prophecy is given to people in the 21st century. For instance, as you read this story you will bump into contemporary issues such as, how do we balance economic growth against the consequences to our environment? How do I weigh what I want or have against what others may need? Which is the higher value within the Christian faith – protecting the doctrines of the church or being compassionate to others?… Thought those questions were all fully answered by Jesus? Maybe we need to revisit them.”

Segue – Under the Mulberry


“I don’t read much Christian fiction… However, I had agreed to the review and my American work ethic overcame my dread. I sat down to slog my way through the book. A few hours later, it was far past my bedtime and I was half-way through the story. Fulmer surprised me. Hometown Prophet has an evangelistic bent, but without the cheese. While it deals with prophecy, it is not “yet another end times prediction book.” Fulmer creates believable characters who question themselves, their faith, and
their actions.”

Michael Caedmon Blog


“Hometown Prophet seeks to challenge the status quo and open our eyes to a wider vision of God’s love and mercy. That being said, this may not be everyone’s cup of (Southern sweet) tea… For me, this was a page turner that went by swiftly over the course of a couple of cigars. I also found myself getting misty eyed after certain passages. I would recommend this book for anyone coming from a charismatic/Pentecostal background and has questions about or are struggling with what they believe.”

Look Me in the Eye


”Hometown Prophet by Jeff Fulmer is a terrific read. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and find it well-written and fast paced. The story snags you right from the start and keeps you turning pages until the very end… Hometown Prophet also has enough twists and turns in its plot to keep you riveted.”

Lynne, Refreshing Insights


“I found this story to be extremely relevant and hard to put down, a really suspenseful page turner. Not only are the characters engaging and diverse, I found the message behind the story of what can happen when someone uses the gift of prophesy in a world desperate to know God is there and cares a refreshing change from the end times rapture scare rags we’ve been offered the last decade or so. Jeff Fulmer is a superb storyteller.”

Gene Smith, Woodwonder


“In some ways, one could say this book is a critique of the evangelical subculture, written from the balcony. It gave me a fresh perspective and good food for thought. Within the first few pages, the book drew me in, and I couldn’t put it down — a sign of good authorship. I stayed up late Sunday night, and ignored the Olympics, just to see how our hero, Peter, was going to land.”

Mark Wilson, Revitalize Your Church


“In this book Fulmer challenges us to pay attention to those around us, to love our neighbors as ourselves and to look for creative ways for God to use us (even if we never hear a prophetic word). People on the far right may be challenged and offended by elements of this story, but I think challenge is good. This is a fun read which I recommend.”

James Smith, Thoughts, Prayers & Songs


“In spite of my cynicism regarding a modern day dreaming prophet, this story was captivating and the book moved along quickly… What I appreciated most about the book was the way in which Peter was given a voice–and ultimately how he used that voice–to challenge beliefs and thoughts of those around him. Who doesn’t want to be able to do that at some point?”

Not All Who Wander Are Lost


“With plenty of action, a love story, and a climatic biblical throw-down in a church, I could easily see this book transformed into a movie… I recommend this book to Christians who believe that God’s grace extends to everybody or at least to those who are willing to be challenged in their beliefs.”

KC Jones, Hope is Real


“A very enjoyable and thought-provoking read. Jeff engages many contemporary issues through the lens of a fictional modern day prophet – which in itself raises a question. Does God still speak through dreams? How would you respond to the gift of prophecy in your town. The setting for Hometown Prophet is my current hometown – Franklin TN – an added delight.”
