Format: Paperback
Best-friends since childhood, Terrell Money and Percival Turner had big dreams to become mega preachers and head up their own church.
As adults, Terrell and Percival known as TJ and PC respectively achieved their dream and then some.

Both now married men they are respected leaders in the community.
With the ownership of One World Faith AME mega church that seats thousands and coveted awards such as Bishop of the Year bestowed upon them these men are sitting pretty.
Money is no object and TJ and PC make sure that everybody knows it!

TJ always took the leading role. Sometimes PC didn't always agree with TJ on certain things but he was content to follow along and cover up many of his best-friend's dirty deeds.
The story really heats up when PC starts feeling guilty about their not so Christian lifestyles and tries to right the wrongs; but Terrell "TJ" Money ain't having none of that...oh no!

This brings about a holy war like no other!!

This was a well rounded read for me. I enjoyed the story and couldn't believe the lengths that TJ would go to!!!! The author was not afraid to put the popular characters through the wringer and some didn't survive...I loved that.

This is certainly a recommended read.

Format: Paperback
Bishop Percival Turner (PC) and his associate pastor, Terrell Money (TJ), have been friends since they were children. Percival loves TJ like a brother and has openly shown TJ the extent of his love. Unfortunately, TJ hasn't done the same. While church is a business to many, Percival is different. He isn't playing the role of a preacher, he is a preacher.

TJ is not truly a man of GOD. TJ's real actions are proven as he's using church money to try to gain property that they need for a new development. Money's goal is to have the largest church without any regard for who will suffer behind his vindictive acts. How much more will PC encounter before his eyes are truly opened to his friend?

"Preacherman Blues" by Jihad is an excellent read. With each page you want more and more. My only complaint is that the sequel won't be released until 9/9/09.

Format: Paperback
The church would definitely say, "Bless this poor soul," in Jihad's new novel,"Preacherman's Blues."
Two friends since adolescence, Terrell TJ Money and Percival PC Turner, are visionaries when it comes to gathering the largest congregation possible to read the daily Word, but of course with a cost.
Only when dark secrets from both childhood friends rise from the pulpit in every form, shape and fashion, will one of the preachermen not want to take the fall and lose sight of their original vision, which is to rob the poor to give to the rich by building a mega church, and to make the most money possible.
Set in Atlanta, GA, the author introduces us to characters who are woven with the flair that ordinary people have come across in their daily lives: drug addict Deidre, who does not have time for turning to the next scripture in a holy book, but has time to turn something or someone else; Bishop PC Turner is thrown into an abyss of tests of faith while trying to find out just who is behind all of the mayhem he encounters when his life starts to go downhill in a matter of what seemed to me, minutes; Carmen, a woman whose friendship he adores no matter what their history consisted of, who is aware of the shady images of those around the Bishop, particularly Pastor Money.
The author used imagery related to the urban street life of non-followers of the church, which helped shape the mission of the main character. The aura of Preacherman's Blues was displayed in the same manner as either Cain and Abel or Judas, the disciple who betrayed Christ. The conflict seemed very authentic especially since the entire novel was based around testing one's faith and being able to continue the fight against those that glee over seeing one in their worst state ever. This was a good read for those going through a test of assurance.

I love every book that Jihad puts out, I have been a little late to the party when it comes to his books but I am never disappointed. The messages that are within his books are true to life. The only problem that I have with this book are the grammatical errors. I felt like I had a correction to make on every other page (I guess I'm just anal that way) but even with all the corrections that needed to be made in order for me to read straight through I felt that it was an excellent read and I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read!

Godly men, men of the cloth, childhood best friends...Mega-Preachers, one manipulative...one gullible. You have been formally introduced to Terrell `TJ' Money and Percival `PC' Turner and these two men have achieved their youthful dream of becomings superstar preachers. They have organized One World Faith, the largest church in the Southeast, gained riches galore, led people from their sinful lives, fed the hungry, provided shelter to the homeless, and lined their pockets with the almighty dollar bill while giving GOD all the glory.

Upon reaching their glorified status, jealousy comes forth and the division begins. PC begins to question decisions due to guilt brought on by his wife. When death claims PC's family, a devastated PC loses control and the downward spiral triggers his fall from grace. TJ masterminds and thrives off of PC's demise, stepping in and shamelessly robbing the poor. Turning the church into a lucrative business while he steals and launders the money for his private overseas accounts.

Jihad has masterfully penned another best seller with fascinating characters and credible plots and scenes. His creativity is captivating as well as intriguing and Jihad exhibits his exemplary skills as he explores the workings of the church business. Preacherman Blues introduces another facet to the questions that plague many as we watch many renowned shepherds sporting designer suits, looking like new money with each step as they boldly profess their conviction and their calling. Jihad challenges you as each anticipated chapter unfolds, and also leaves his infamous mark on the minds of his readers. You will never close a read of Jihad's without taking some sort of lesson with you. Manipulation, deception, murder, adultery, suspense, lust, all manner of sins of the flesh abound in Jihad's latest work of genius!! You continue to do that thang my brotha!!! Can't wait for the continuation! 4.5****
