Ordained by the Streets by E.N. JOY

What's hot for e-readers?

About the Book

“While half the women in the neighborhood got dressed up in their Sunday’s best to go worship an invisible man, the real live men of flesh they laid down with every night was giving my mother praise. And although they weren’t putting ten percent of their earnings in some shiny collection plate, they were doing pretty good filling up my mom’s Crowne Royal bag that laid on her nightstand, next to her bed.”

Ordained By The Streets introduces you to Poppa, or rather, Poppa introduces you to himself. A self-proclaimed street preacher, Poppa’s credentials and credibility don’t come from the church house or a preacher man; it comes straight from where it counts…the streets.

More than eyes have seen or ears have heard, Poppa never becomes jaded by the lives and stories he encounters in his position on the streets. In this urban tract, Poppa encounters a girl whose mind he sets out to manipulate. After all, that’s what he does. But in this girl, Poppa just might have met his match.

When this girl bares her soul to Poppa with details of her life, he has no idea just how much her story is going to change his life…forever.

Book Review
From the very first words "I'm Saved," E.N. Joy creates a tale that will have you hooked until the very end. Ordained by The Streets (The Street Preacher) is a Christian fiction book unlike any others that I have read before. It mixes the bible and religious values with gritty life on the streets. It takes you into the lives of pimps, prostitutes, and runaways.

In the beginning, Poppa is introduced to a 17 year old runaway and that introduction changes his life. This girl is not like any other girl that he has met. She has endured more than most people in her short life and through it all she never gives up her faith. She is a strong willed person with one goal in mind. She is willing to do whatever it takes to survive but in the course of it all she holds on to her beliefs.

All that Poppa learned about peoples character and how to manipulate people, he learned in the church. Things that you never would expect for a person of poppa's standings to use, he used to his advantage. He was the Sheppard leading the sheep to his flock.

Ordained by The Streets (The Street Preacher) is a story about hope, faith and redemption. I strongly recommend this book. If you are looking for a fast and moving read this is the book for you. I completed this book in one day. I am looking forward the next book in the Street Preacher series.
