Renowned Author Coming to the Lone Star State...
By Sandra Dukes
"Because you never know what happens...when the church doors close!"


Renowned Author Dr. Joseph Howard of Surprise, Arizona will be on tour. He wrote “Battered Clergy; from Victim to Victor” in 2006 which won a Power Award (Dayton, OH 2007) for new inspirational piece. The novel, “Battered Clergy,” also won the Novels to Film Competition in Chicago, Illinois (2008) for feature-length film. This same book/movie is being revised into a stage play scheduled for its first performance in Dallas, Texas in June 2010.

Battered Clergy is a story of a soft spoken, middle-aged minister, Pastor Gee, with a powerful and anointed gift to preach the gospel. Despite his abusive childhood, he has overcome great odds and now leads a church who has just suffered the loss of their pastor and first l ady. The plot thickens with the introduction of Pastor Gee’s wife, First Lady Cynthia Hayes. Her controlling and conniving ways lead her to an affair with a church member and she will stop at nothing to have her way; even if it means removing her devoted husband out of the picture by any means necessary.
