Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0758203764, Hardcover)

As the Bible thumpin', don't-you-dare-sass-me Sister Betty, Pat G'Orge Walker performs at churches, universities, writers' conferences, and on Chicago's WYCA radio. Now, she brings Sister Betty and her adventures to a wider audience with this uplifting collection of tales and spiritual teachings. WHEN GOD CALLS, SISTER BETTY ANSWERS Sister Betty always wore a big cross hung around her tiny wrinkled neck, carried a much too big Bible, and constantly smiled for no apparent reason. The children had heard that no matter what the situation was, she would just clasp her petite hands together, look up toward heaven, and give you a smile. Sometimes while laying her hands on your head and praying, her false teeth would fall forward. Before they hit the floor she would snatch up the teeth by their metal hook. She'd put them in her pocket and keep right on smiling, showing her pink rubbery gums. Every so often, she mumbled some words that she claimed only her and God understood, but would benefit whomever she prayed for... Sister Betty hasn't been the same since God called her on the phone back in 84. A devoted member of Ain't Nobody Right But Us--All Others Goin' to Hell Church, she's always looking out for the welfare of her fellow congregants--and it's a big job, considering they're none too good at looking out for themselves--or each other. Still, doing God's will is all in a day's work for Sister Betty--and seven of her most hilarious and inspirational adventures are gathered in SISTER BETTY! GOD'S CALLING YOU, AGAIN! a soulful treat from Pat G'Orge Walker for fans of God, gospel, and good times. As irrepressible as Sister Betty herself, Pat G'Orge Walker celebrates the gospel heritage andabiding faith of African Americans with her creation of an unforgettable character, and her delightful comic sketches of modern life.
