THE JOURNEY OF A MAN AND THREE WOMEN, FINDING FREEDOM IN THE TRINITY. Backslide "I always held Pastors to such high standards. To me they were the closest thing to GOD. I have actually left churches for mistakes that Pastors had made. How hypercritical of me. After reading the book Backslide my thoughts have changed. The first think I realized is that Pastors are human. They have the same trials and tribulations if not more than the congregation they minister o. I appreciate the authors honesty and willingness to share life experiences to educate others. Backslide is a definite read." - Tanisha Bagley, author of "The Price of Love" "Culturally literate, morally sophisticated, socially compassionate and poitically conscious, Reverend Carl Kenney has long proven himself to be a man of the people and of the spirit. Reverend Kenney is a constant reminder that there are no boundaries to the spiritual worlds we are all destined to inhabit." - Mark Anthony Neal, author of "New Black Man: Rethinking Black Masculinity" "This book is a truly emotional piece of fiction. It is a story comes from some very real places. Shinning a bright light on some very dark corners, A raw piece of art imitating life." - YahZarah ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Affectionately known as "Kenney the voice of many", Carl grew up in Columbia, Missouri.
