    "Roby succeeds with Casting The First Stone"

    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.

    "What a great book"

    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!

    Story
    "Shocker"
    Where does Casting the First Stone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tanya because I was rooting for her.


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Clay – was your favorite?

    Tanya Black


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Casting the First Stone


    Any additional comments?

    Great sereies!

    Story
    "Preachers are still - Just men"
    What made the experience of listening to Casting the First Stone the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    When Curtis gets what he deserves in the end


    If you could take any character from Casting the First Stone out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Alicia, because she was the only one that wasn't deceitful


    Any additional comments?

    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.
    Great Book.

    Story
    "roby did a great job with this book"
    What did you love best about Casting the First Stone?

    the climax in the church.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What does Caroline Clay bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the 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!


    If you could rename Casting the First Stone, what would you call it?

    CURTIS, THE KINGFISH WITH THE DOUBLE STANDARD


    Any additional comments?

    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.
