I have long been a fan of novels published by Urban Christian “The Finest In Christian Fiction” but I had not read any new titles in a while. Low and behold I was browsing through the aisle of the book store and I spotted a new title, A Man’s Worth by Nikita Lynnette Nichols. What stood out to me about this book was the fact that the main character was a young, unmarried Christian black man, rather than a black woman.
Most of the titles by Urban Christian fiction center around female characters who are struggling with love, religion, self-identity, or all of the above. In this title, however, the lead character is Randall Loomis. He is a highly religiously devoted, gainfully employed, attractive black man who is secure in his religious beliefs. So, what could make him fall of the wagon? Yep, you guessed it! A woman. She’ snot just any woman- Randall falls head over heels for Amaryllis, a woman with a face and body as beautiful as her name, but a lost soul that threatens to make Randall loose his religion.
If you are looking for a thought-provoking title that discusses the impact of love on our relationship with God, and especially from a man’s persepective, this is title for you! You can find more information on the novel at www.urbanchristian.net or purchase it on Amazon.com.
