"A lively mix of church politics and bedroom follies." --Publishers Weekly

New York Times bestselling author Carl Weber takes readers back to church--where preaching isn't always enough. . .

Bishop T.K. Wilson has done all he can to make First Jamaica Ministries a success. But with his last choir director getting caught in a scandal, attendance and cash flow are down. To fill the pews and collection plates, Bishop is counting on a new choir director, the charismatic Aaron Mackie, to revive the church.

Aaron has been waiting his entire life to prove he has what it takes to be a big-time choir director. But his ways around women, past and present, could cost him more than his job. Soon, the Bishop is dealing with in-fighting, jealousies, and personal vendettas. But a final piece of the puzzle has yet to be revealed: Someone has been robbing the church blind. Someone whose connection to the Bishop is far too close for comfort. . .

"A masterfully written gem." --RT Book Reviews

"Faith, hope, and fornication constitute the theme of this lusty tale." --Booklist (starred review)

From Publishers Weekly:

Juicy scandals rock Bishop T.K. Wilson's First Jamaica Ministries Church in Queens, New York City, in Weber's latest church series eyebrow-raiser. Monique, Bishop's first lady, and her fellow megachurch members are shocked when Jackie Robinson Moss, their choir director, is revealed to be gay and a seducer of many "straight" churchgoers, causing a drop in church membership and cash-flow problems. Wilson recruits (blackmails?) Aaron Mackie, a hot, gifted Virginia choir director, to set things right. Aaron attracts the wild and crazy Simone Wilcox, self-obsessed chairwoman of the board of trustees running Jamaica Ministries who's been pilfering from the church's accounts along with a duplicitous deacon. Aaron, however, is more interested in Tia Gregory, the church's much nicer secretary/rape counselor. After a church member commits suicide, secrets are exposed that could destroy the church and various relationships as Weber (Up to No Good) successfully explores the multiple megaproblems challenging this church family and scores again with a lively mix of church politics and bedroom follies.

Book Description Kensington Publishing, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. New York Times bestselling author Carl Weber takes readers back to church, where preaching isn't always enough, nothing goes better with the Word than a song-and it's time for some hard-earned lessons in love, brotherhood, and betrayal.Bishop T.K. Wilson has done all he can to make First Jamaica Ministries a success. But with his last choir director getting caught in a scandal, attendance and cash flow are down. To fill the pews and collection plates, Bishop is counting on a new choir director, the charismatic Aaron Mackie, to revive the church. Aaron has been waiting his entire life to prove he has what it takes to be a big-time choir director. But his ways around women, past and present, could cost him more than his job. Simone Wilcox is smart, sexy-and a highly respected church trustee. She's got her eye on the new choir director, with the intention of having a lot more on him, and no one is getting in her way. First Lady Monique Wilson does and says what she wants, regardless of church politics. Despite her shortcomings and a past rumored to include a long list of men, she'll do just about anything to protect the Bishop. You'd think the Bishop was being tested enough, with choir in-fighting, romantic jealousies, and personal vendettas. But a final piece of the puzzle has yet to be revealed: Someone has been robbing the church blind. Someone whose connection to the Bishop is far too close for comfort. . . .Praise For The Church SeriesUp To No Good"This page-turning drama keeps readers in suspense until the very last page." -Upscale MagazineThe First Lady"Weber gives us a front-row pew seat to all the action going down." -Essence(R)So You Call Yourself A Man"A delightful and entertaining book." -Black Issues Book ReviewThe Preacher's Son"Weber spins a lively, revelation-packed tale deepened by genuine emotion, convincing detail and smart dialogue." -Publishers Weekly Prologue It was Father's Day at First Jamaica Ministries, the largest church in Queens, New York, and the pews were filled to capacity with those honoring the men in their lives. Bishop T. K. Wilson, the pastor of the church, was in top form as he pranced around the pulpit, preaching on what it truly means to be a father and a man in this upside-down world of ours. His sermon was so powerful and his words so inspiring that he brought grown men to tears and had some of the more animated women jumping out of their seats and fainting in the aisles. He touched on the responsibilities of being a husband and a father. What made his sermon so special was that he tied it all into the word of God so well that even the children had no problem understanding it. When he finished his sermon, everyone in the building felt enlightened, but the celebration was far from over because when the bishop sat down, the choir stood up and the collection plate went around. Halfway through the first song, everyone in the church was on their feet, singing, clapping, and paying tithes. "Hallelujah!" the bishop said as the choir finished their third selection and sat down. "Wasn't that wonderful? Praise God! Thank you, Jesus. There is nothing like having a good song with the Word. Can the church say amen?" "Amen!" the congregation shouted back in unison. "Now, as most of you know from my sermon, today is Father's Day, the day we're supposed to honor our fathers and husbands." He held on to the microphone as he paced from one end of the pulpit to the other. "I know some of you are ready to go home and barbecue with Dad, maybe go to the beach with him, maybe even just sit in front of the TV and watch the game with him, but before you leave, there is one order of business that we have to take care of." Bishop Wilson returned to the center of the pulpit and placed the microphone back in. Seller Inventory # APC9780758231857

Book Description Dafina Books. Paperback. Condition: New. 336 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.1in. x 1.1in.New York Times bestselling author Carl Weber takes readers back to church, where preaching isnt always enough, nothing goes better with the Word than a song--and its time for some hard-earned lessons in love, brotherhood, and betrayal. Bishop T. K. Wilson has done all he can to make First Jamaica Ministries a success. But with his last choir director getting caught in a scandal, attendance and cash flow are down. To fill the pews and collection plates, the Bishop is counting on a new choir director, the charismatic Anthony Mackie, to revive the church. Anthony Mackie has been waiting his entire life for the opportunity to prove he has what it takes to be a big-time choir director like Kirk Franklin. But while Anthony is more than up to the challenge, his ways around women, both past and present, could cost him more than his job. Savannah Dickens is just one of the women whos caught Anthonys attention. The choir needs a soloist, and Savannah, a beautiful singer who once topped the charts, also needs the church. She has a voice that could break any mans heart, but now she just wants to be left alone to reclaim her faith. First Lady Monique Wilson is far from being the typical first lady. She does and says what she wants, and doesnt subscribe to church politics. Despite her shortcomings and a past rumored to include a long list of men, shes willing to do just about anything to protect the Bishop. The members of First Jamaica Ministries are also keeping the Bishop busy with choir in-fighting, romantic jealousies, and personal vendettas. Youd think the Bishop was being tested enough, but a final piece of the puzzle has yet to be revealed: Someone has been robbing the church blind. Someone whose connection to the Bishop is far too close for comfort. . . . This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
