The Pastor Strays, But Churchgoing Readers Pay - For More Than A Million Books
"As much as [Roby's] novels traffic in Mr. Black's sins -- living large and cheating on two wives while presenting himself as the symbol of moral authority -- they also depict in knowledgeable and even tender ways black Christianity's deep sense of community and a fabric of meaningful ritual. It is precisely because Mr. Black serves so valuable a tradition that his failings hit with such impact." The New York Times 10/04/13
