Follow the story of a woman’s road to
redemption after an affair with a church  minister.

“The Last Pew: Journeying Back to God’s Will After an Affair” is the account of a young single Christianwoman who lived most of her life being pure, wholesome, spiritual and obedient. Upon moving to a new city and beginning her career as an educator, she encounters a young unhappily married man who also happens to be a minister at a local Baptist church. Throughout a two-year period of them working together, she is courted; they fall in love and commit to a life and relationship of immorality and sin.

The narrative essentially tells the love story of the two, showing how two people who know God intimately, and have been doing His will for so long, can eventually walk down a path of spiritual destruction.

It illustrates the reasons that enabled the young woman’s spiritual judgment to decline in order for this relationship to take place and the spiritual steps she had to take in order to be freed from the affair. The story clearly shows the power of God’s grace, mercy, forgiveness and the true capacity of prayer and fasting.

“The Last Pew” is a significant story because it is an account of adultery that certainly is a muzzled issue within the Christian community. It is an honest, transparent and appropriate narrative written with the hopes of providing its reader with a different take of who “the other woman” is.

It proves that “the other woman” can be a woman of God who got lost while on her walk with Christ. At its core, “The Last Pew” is a story of redemption and finding purpose after sin. The title symbolizes how far the narrator was from God’s altar and His will, but the story is a reminder that God’s love can always allow for any lost soul to move back to the front of His altar.

The ending serves as a workbook for struggling women coming out of their affair. There is a chapter devoted to points and scriptures to guide women through the process of their healing. The book closes with an open letter to any woman who has had to deal with infidelity within her own marriage.

A riveting testimony and a biblical based workbook, this is a resource for all women. Though adultery is a silent story within the church, it certainly is a reality for many Christians, making this a conversation that needs to be had.

Whether the person reading this story is a woman trying to come out of an affair, a wife trying to heal from learning about an extra-marital affair or a man of God that is caught in the middle, this book will minister.
