Tanya Black had deeply believed in her husband's call to
preach. And when he asked her to marry him she'd felt
blessed to be part of such a future. Sitting in the second
row of his Chicago church only a few years later, she is
unable to bear listening to his sermons or understand what
happened to their shared dream.
Blackboard bestselling author Kimberla Lawson Roby takes on
one of the most controversial issues in America: corruption
and temptation within church leadership. An electrifying
read, CASTING THE FIRST STONE goes behind the scenes of a
fictional Chicago church and its struggle to keep faith and
commitment alive in the face of ambition.
This is the third novel of this author whose previous books
have won her dedicated fans and a connection to readers
coast-to-coast. Her works bring to life Black women whose
lives are complex with jobs, children, spouses and lovers -
in short the kind of lives her readers themselves live.
Giving voice to the women who share their concerns with her
has always been Roby's aim in each novel she has written.
CASTING THE FIRST STONE listens in on the heart of a woman
torn between loving who her husband was and hating who he
has become. Roby weaves a fast-paced story about faith's
challenges in a world made up of material desires and other
physical temptations. Taken right from the headlines, Roby's
cautionary tale looks at the other side of church politics
and the emotional toll it takes.
