I cant explain how much i loved the book, the story was very well written, and the cast was excellent. I wish that the other 2 books following were on audio cd, because i would have definitly purchased those, but i have read book 4 and 5 and wasnt disappointed!!!
I highly recommend Ms robys' books
Kimberla Lawson Roby explores the lives of the church leaders who struggle with their emotions and reactions and the impact of their choices on those closest to them (family and church members). She shows the reader the differences between those who stand in scripture, and those who live as hypocrites, and how what is in the dark finally comes to light. The author vividly paints the emotions of each character who is casting the first stone. A very good and interesting read.
My niece recommended I listen to this book, and I usually listen to murder, mystery, etc. This book kept me listening for hours at a time and I was surprised by the beginning, middle and end! The ending was superb because it opens your eyes to one's own spirituality and relationship with God, family and friends. This book is definitely a must read/listen regardless of what genre you prefer to listen to...it will keep you on your toes at all times. GREAT BOOK!
Easy read and a wonderfull twist at the end. I listened to this book twice and was able to enjoy it a second time around!
I couldn't believe how the Rev Curtis Black flipped the script on Tanya. I do worry that this book gives ALL pastors/reverends a bad rep, but the fact is most already have one! This book is juicy with drama! I'm hooked and have been rapidly listening to one after another!
Tanya because I was rooting for her.
Casting the First Stone
I love the fact that there were real scenerios to be dealt with. Things that happen in the real word that pastors/1st Ladys face every day..
Tanya, I loved how real she was a true Black women of character she fough for her marriage and dealth with the issue alone and kept it away from her daughter. And fought in a righteous way not sinful way.
When Tanya made up her mind to leave and move on with her life for the best for her daughter and self
The same as the Book Title
The story line kept you wanting to listen for more. Pastors does have a responsible to watch over your soul, but you have a greater responsible to also keep you soul in line with what God has for you. Church people has got to start living so that others can come to Christ.
When Curtis gets what he deserves in the end
Alicia, because she was the only one that wasn't deceitful
This book should teach you that you shouldn't put all your trust in man and that you should follow the Preacher as he follows Christ. No person is exempt from Sin.
AUDIBLE MAKES READING POSSIBLE AND EASY FOR ME...I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. I WISH THEY HAD ALL THE BOOKS I WANT I WOULD SNAP THEM UP!
the climax in the church.
i have read several roby books. i like them all but they lack depth. this book had a little more depth that i don't want to say. as i don't want to give away things to first time readers of this book.
well, i would be skipping lines and my eyes would give up after one paragraph (i have an eye problem : - D. being read to is really a nice experience. it is very difficult for those of us who have visual problems. i would not be reading anything. THANK YOU AUDIBLE!
CURTIS, THE KINGFISH WITH THE DOUBLE STANDARD
i have enjoyed roby books but had decided that this would be the last as i wanted more depth. but i enjoyed this one so much i have changed my mind. i will buy another title by roby.
I would recommend this audiobook. Storyline keeps your interest.
It keeps you looking forward to the next section.
