Granted, Ms. Vanessa has been Blessed with a delightful imagination and I genuinely enjoyed her colorful characters; but I am of the old-school credo that believes stories should have a beginning (introduction to the characters), a middle (conflict), and, An End (climatic resolution of the conflict).
This story grabbed my interest and left me hanging, only to learn that I needed to read subsequent books to find out how these characters’ faired in their plights. Why not just put the entire story into one novel?
If this is a new-aged ploy to sell more books – I say “Bad idea!” I dare say that I’ll be on the lookout for this time-wasting trap in the future. I did LOVE the scripture beginning each chapter...SMILE!!! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 075821734X, Paperback)

From Vanessa Davis Griggs comes the second book in her Blessed Trinity Trilogy. Part Terry McMillan, part Jan Karon, Griggs delivers the story of a congregation hoping for heaven--while dealing with life right here on earth. . .

When Pastor George Landris, the dreadlock-wearing minister of the new mega-church, Followers of Jesus Faith Worship Center, urges his congregation to approach the altar and cast off their strongholds--also known as their weaknesses--it's the start of intense soul-searching for many.

From a married couple's twin addictions to gambling and gluttony, to a female member's adulterous affair, a computer expert's obsession with cyber-porn and a therapist's workaholism, the Pastor's church family is about to open the proverbial floodgates. And that's just the beginning. There's also the woman whose battle with mental illness hides a buried trauma, and the religious devotee who's so busy fearing the devil she's forgotten what faith is really about. The plot only thickens when the Pastor's wife lightens his load by helping him counsel--and finds herself at the center of a decades-long deception.

Insightful, witty, and always poignant, Vanessa Davis Griggs delivers another compelling novel, taking readers behind the scenes of mega-churches, and showing the amazing power that redemption and faith can have on people's lives.
