I've recently released an exciting new book entitled The Black Church – Where Women Pray and Men Prey which contains dozens of real-life stories of sexual abuse by Pastors, Ministers, Bishops, and church members. It also presents astute observations about the many different types of mental and financial games being run on women in Black churches across the nation.
Based on the shocking 2010 blog post that had CNN, Al Sharpton, Michael Baisden, Michael Eric Dyson, Al Joyner and all of Black America in an uproar: The Black Church: How Black Churches Keep African American Women Si... we move forward with an even more uncomfortable examination of Christian religion in the black community, non-biblical tenets of the prosperity gospel, and the games played by unscrupulous black preachers.
It's a solid page turner, but not everyone will have the stomach for it. Some women are afraid of what they might find when they pull back the curtain, and aren't willing to question their blind faith in the men of their church. Neither are some able to understand that they must stop worshiping their pastors because these men are NOT God.
However, for those women brave enough to question their religious leaders, willing to take a look at what is going on at their churches, and strong enough to demand protection from predatory men for women and children within the walls of the House of God, this book is right on time. And for the black women and children that have personally experienced the travesties of which the author writes, the book validates their reality and gives them a voice.
