I didn't realize that there was a movie on this book until I started reading it and saw the similarities in the characters. Some of these characters were hard to swallow, especially the pastor.
He was such a failure when it came to his family and his wife enabled him in the failed venture. Jan 06, Nardsbaby Reader rated it it was amazing. No one sin is greater than the next Simon Jackson, pastor of Zion Hill located in Houston, Texas is a regal and revered man. Well that is at church at least. His home life is complicated. He can't seem to understand his oldest son, and only daughter. He's turned them over to God. His concern now is his middle child. The one he refers to as his prodigal child.
His wife has been the only woman he's been with.

It wasn't like he didn't have opportunities, but he honored God. He just wished that Loretta could see that there grown children needed to sink or swim. Loretta Jackson, first lady and school teacher. She's been called a many names.

Mainly she was devoted to her husband and her family. Though she didn't have much to say Loretta is the glue that holds her dysfunctional family together. She didn't dare argue with Simon about the children. Instead she tries to make up for him. It is Loretta's hope that her family eventually realize that they need one another.
And no matter how they may feel they are all the others have. David the oldest child had always been a problem child. Nothing major, he was a C student fun loving kid. Only problem David couldn't seem to adjust to, was not having his father's acceptance.
Once he had a college scholarship and played football. Now things were so different. His family at times tried to help him. Jonathan the middle child has always done precisely what it was his father wanted. A college graduate with a Divinity degree. Jonathan is struggling with the weight of the world on his shoulders. There is no easy way for Jon to divulge his secrets to his father.
Not if he wants to maintain Daddy's love.
Rachel this baby girl gives new meaning to what it is to be a preacher's kid, as well as a drama filled baby mama. She doesn't have just one child out of wedlock, but two children, with two different men. Sister girl is still a partier! Yet she wonders why she can't make it to praise God on time! It promises to keep you perched on the edge of your seat trying to read what is going to happen next. I tell you at times I was like this is some crap. At other times I was laughing aloud.

It's filled with a family struggling with demons and as they bond the burden appears to get lighter. Those of you who haven't opened this book from fear that it's "religion" TRUST this book has a lot to offer. God is an awesome God! We may not understand God's motives, but He knows what's best for us!
View 2 comments. Jul 08, Carmen Blalock rated it it was amazing. In his time there he has increased the membership from 50 to over and he has been profiled in the newspaper 26 times for accomplishments and programs at the church. Zion Hill is the perfect family for him since his own family is far from that! Loretta Jackson is Simon's loyal and faithful wife and mother of his 3 children who understands his love of the Lord and the work that needs to be done in order to brings others to the Lord.
Loretta's biggest struggle is making her children see how important their father's work is.
David is the oldest son of Simon and Loretta who had a promising career in pro football until a career ending injury put an end to his dreams of being successful and sent him on a downward spiral that caused a division in the Jackson family. Rachel, the only daughter is 19 and a mother of 2 who doesn't see why her father has such a big issue with her being unmarried, with 2 different fathers and partying all the time. It is one thing to be promiscuous but to flaunt it and be disrespectful in church, Reverend Jackson is not going for that!
Jonathan, the middle child and Simon's pride and joy has returned from college, receiving his degree and is in line to become the next pastor of Zion Hill - according to Simon. Jonathan has some important issues to talk over with his father and hopes that his father will still love him the same.
When major changes hit the Jackson family will the family be able to pull together and work it all out or will they fall apart for good. Let the Church Say Amen was an excellent book with a strong storyline that keeps you wanting more!
ReShonda has shown us time and time again that she has staying power and I look forward to the next installment in this series. Simon Jackson ha fulfilled his dream of becoming a pastor. Tending to sheep at Zion Hill church has taken over his life that he fails to see his family has gone astray from lack of attention. With two kids all she cares about is chasing after her first love and will do nothing to stop until she gets him but little do she know that all she need was her fathers.
