Part Terry McMillan, part Jan Karon, author Vanessa Davis Griggs delivers the second book in her exciting Blessed Trinity Trilogy.

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 and a computer expert's obsession with cyber-porn, the church family is about to open the proverbial floodgates. And that's just the beginning. 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, Griggs once again shows the amazing power of redemption and faith in people's lives.

"Vanessa's rich stories of faith in action always hit the writing trifecta--they make you laugh, cry, and yearn for more. Her wonderfully realistic characters leap off the pages, compelling you to join them in one life-changing adventure after another."
--Angela Benson, National Bestselling Author

From the Back Cover:

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 additions 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 to show the amazing power that redemption and faith can have on people's lives.
