In this fully stocked 246-page novel two beloved favorites come together—Jesus and Walmart. Fueled by Pastor Malachi Marble’s fall from faith, which tumbles him into the late night world of Walmart.
Author Rick Leland spent fourteen months working as a Walmart Overnight Stocker doing research for the book. Well, not purely for research.
“Actually I needed the money to live on,” Leland said. “But I knew God was working something out in my life, as inspiration for Jesus at Walmart emerged even before my first night’s work was over.”
Walk past the greeter; into the heart of Walmart with Malachi Marble. Grab a shopping cart. You’ll need something to hang onto during this trip to Walmart like no other.
And when you exit Jesus at Walmart, expect to leave a changed person

Rick Leland writes from his home in South Haven, MI.
With over a decade of professional writing experience and hundreds of published works, Jesus at Walmart was his first trilogy. And his latest book is the true story An Amish Awakening.
He holds a degree in Christian Ministry through Indiana Christian University and trained for two years with Christian Writers Guild.
When not writing, Rick can often be found building things. And when he’s not doing that, spending time with his grandchildren and playing the mandolin are two activities which give him great pleasure.
And sometimes he gets to do both at the same time. When playing in a band he affectionately calls the Sammy Schrock Band (named after his great grandfather). The band is comprised of his granddaughter Magaly, Nancy-his wife, and himself. He says, “We’re kind of entry level—like eighth graders. Still it’s a blast. And you have to start somewhere.” The Sammy Schrock Band performs mainly original worship songs, but they do have a nice version of No Longer Slaves (I Am a Child of God) in their rotation.
Rick attends to his fitness by running on the beach or trails and participating in an occasional mud run.
While all of these activities are eclipsed by going for a walk on the shores of Lake Michigan with his wife of nearly 35 years–Nancy. He says, “God has blessed us to be able to live five-blocks from the beach in South Haven, Michigan.”
