Reading for Me

The Books I Have Read…..Just for Me

#15: Jesus Boy (Preston L. Allen)

on May 13, 2012

ImageSchool is out for summer, so that means I actually had time to read an actual book!  Jesus Boy told the story of the members of The Church of Our Blessed Redeemer Who Walked Upon the Waters church located in central Florida.  This congregation is filled with talented members who all struggle with their own frailty, immorality, and sinfulness.  Despite its title, the novel is NOT intended for a Christian audience.  Filled with humor and stereotype, Allen’s novel explores the charismatic church movement of the African-American community with a sharp — and often irreverent — tongue.

I’m glad I read the book, but don’t offer it as a recommendation for others.  2 out of 5 stars.
