Pastor Hezekiah Cleveland and First Lady Samantha are leaders of the New Testament Cathedral in Los Angeles, CA, a mega-church that is televised worldwide and boast a congregation of over 10,000 members.  The powerful couple is envied by many and their selfish motives are often played out in their own home.  Samantha wants very much to be the Pastor of New Testament Cathedral, but her unfaithful husband stands in her way.  Hezekiah is not living the holy life of a pastor.  He meets an advocate for the homeless who are protesting the building of a new, bigger and more expensive edifice for New Testament.  He doesn’t count on his relationship with the homeless advocate to grow into the scandalous affair that ensues; one that if his congregants get wind of, will surely destroy his leadership at New Testament. There is a varied cast of characters who each want the Clevelands out of the church for their own reasons.  As each executes their own agenda, a chain of events is set off that includes betrayal, infidelity and murder. 

COME SUNDAY MORNING, the debut offering of Terry Hill, is not Christian fiction, but more so a fiction story set in a church setting; although this type of behavior in churches is becoming more commonly known.  The book contained characters that were flawed and motivated by their own reasoning.  Both Hezekiah and Samantha's characters were strong in their convictions, which presented situations where the best decisions did not often prevail.  A very well-written page-turner, the book foretells of a sequel that I will definitely be picking up.
