Jesus Boy by Preston L. AllenI absolutely loved this book! Preston Allen wrote a purely classic novel with this story. Church going folk will especially enjoy this novel as well. Many of cultures and issues within the African American church appear within the story. This book also has a similar theme as James Baldwins classic first novel, Go Tell It on The Mountain. In which, he writes about a young Black man growing up in a holy roller church while dealing with the pressures of the secular world.
Jesus Boy is definitely worth the read and will not disappoint.

By: Preston L. Surely no one does church sexy like Allen. It would be easy for Jesus Boy to become fluffy satire but Allen keeps his characters real.

Jesus and the Word
Inspired by a visit to Etruscan tombs, Lawrence reimagines the resurrection of Christ as a man who comes to appreciate his physicality. The premise of the book — that Jesus was a human being prone to human temptations — caused an outcry in some Christian circles. Man in White , Johnny Cash. Issues of redemption and morality often crop up in the songs of Johnny Cash. In , the Man in Black expanded on these preoccupations in his only novel, Man in White. Retelling the story of Saul on the road to Damascus as he changes his ways and becomes an apostle of Christ, Cash saw resonances with his own life and career.
