The author of Church Folk once again takes us on a hilarious journey into the inner sanctums of African American church life. In 1970s St. Louis, members of the Gethsemane Missionary Baptist Church prepare to celebrate its 100th year anniversary. However, with the unexpected death of its pastor, the church faces a terrible dilemma: finding a new pastor not only in time to prepare for the church centennial, but also in time to ensure the survival of the church itself! It seems as though everyone has a strong opinion about who the new pastor should be. Bowen weaves the hilarious stories of several church members as they plan, plot, and connive ways for their favorite candidate to win the pastorship. Will they be able to sort out their differences before the anniversary? God only knows....
