July Book of the Month-- Playing God by Michelle
Hope deferred makes the heart sick. After seven years as a counselor, the once idealistic Tamara
Roberts has absorbed so much of the loss, doubts, and trials of her clients that she begins to question how God can let so
much hurt happen in the lives of good people. Corinne Collins husband, a respected religious leader, is unfaithful with another
man; Lydia Deveraux tries to take matters into her own hands to settle the score between her and her famous but absent producer
husband; Jamilah, Tamara's best friend, is trying to save a young girl neglected by her mother. In contrast, Felicia Sample
(featured in The Last Ten Percent) is married, saved, and feeling blessed after a past of indecision and mistakes.
This riveting novel with intersecting story lines will remind readers that God is loving, all
knowing, merciful, and the One completely in control if only we'll believe and wait for His victory.
