Publisher's Summary

Carl Weber is a New York Times best-selling author who’s made a name for himself with wildly entertaining works marked by his trademark wit and storytelling panache. In The Choir Director, Bishop T.K. Wilson is banking on dynamic new choir director Anthony Mackie to reverse the failing congregation’s fortunes. But while Anthony’s got more than enough chops to raise a heavenly chorus, he’s also got a weakness for the ladies that could make the Devil himself stand up and take notice.

Church Politics is no joke!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Choir Director to be better than the print version?

I cannot rate that because I never read the print version. The audio version was outstanding in many ways. First there were the characters, the insight to what really happens in the church pollitic and how those the congregation look up to to feed us God's Word are usually so mired in their own personal agendas that the content and context of God's word gets lost behind their misbehavior.

What other book might you compare The Choir Director to and why?

A book in print by Kimberla Lawson Roby where the Pastor engaged in some unsavory behavior. This one addressed the elephant in the room of Choir Directors almost always being gay. This one thank God was not portrayed as being gay however he did have his issues of infidelity and secrets.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The real flavor of how the ones who are in seats of power in the corporate church structure really conduct business. It gives a more expanded look at the mindset behind the actions of those involved from the Pastor on down to the janitor.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and it is a book that I listened to in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book. I would have loved for a more compassionate ending to the blackmailing friend of the Pastor by the Pastor's wife but such is life when even Christians do not really know who and whose we are.

Just OK.

Simplistic predictable storyline. The narrator performances helped to move the story along. I'll pass on other Webber books.

NOT VERY INTERESTING

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

BETTER STORY LINE, LESS DESCRIPTION OF SITUATION -- THIS STORY WAS DRAGGING AND WAS VERY PREDICABLE. LESS CORNY SCENARIO ..

Would you ever listen to anything by Carl Weber again?

YES, I NORMALLY LISTEN TO MR WEBER

would not recommend

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

someone who would be interested in pornographic literature woven into high drama.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Probably not a book by this particular author or in this genre.

How could the performance have been better?

It is probably difficult to elicit a good performance out of poorly written material.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

All of the above. It seems as if the book is titled in a particular way to draw christian readers into an extremely sordid tale.

Any additional comments?

If the choir director is the protagonist then there should be enough material to keep the story developed around his character minus the sordid drama of too many other characters.
