Listeners who love to laugh should rush out and get this title! Lizan Mitchell is amazing as she recounts the tale of the Nobody Else Right But Us, Everybody Else Going to Hell Church in tiny Pelzer, South Carolina. Whether she’s portraying Ma Seal's grandchildren or former hypocrite Sister Betty, Mitchell nails the characters, their humor, and the lessons woven in. A bishop who hasn't read the Bible, a greedy pastor, a prideful deacon, and plotting Mother Pray Onn round out a hilarious cast of characters. Don't miss the fun when leaders attempt to add a drive-through to the church and a member offers shouting lessons "for appearances' sake." G'Orge-Walker concludes each chapter with scripture to guide those who wish to avoid the wicked ways of her characters. J.J.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2009]
