About the Book
Faye is a mother in the AME church. She has spent 40 years of her life working for the Lord. Chad is a white, conservative Christian radio talk show host. He enjoys riling up the masses about issues related to race, gender, class, and politics. Jeremiah is a popular, Christian tele-evangelist. The charismatic, African American pastor of a popular mega-church, he is celebrated for his knowledge of scripture. Rosa is a Hispanic, single mom. An English teacher in the Catholic school she grew up in, she is a survivor of domestic abuse. So what happens when these four very different people find themselves trapped in a historical church in North Philadelphia AFTER THE RAPTURE? More than left behind, the characters in THE UNLIKELY REMNANT are left to deal with the personal truths and tragic secrets that led to them missing God; all while wrestling with the prejudices that inevitably surface in their relationships with each other. Who will press in an d who will give up their soul forever?

The Unlikely Remnant by Tracey Michae’l Lewis is thought provoking and so appropriate for our time. Christians know we are living in the last days, and with the turmoil of weather incidents, racial profiling, straight out racism and killing, this book is right on time. I’ve read the Left Behind books a long time ago and The Unlikely Remnant puts its own spin on the rapture.

The book details four characters and their views on Christ and God as a whole. Many of us may not admit it, but we have someone in our family that represents every one of these characters. Some books are in your face raunchy, The Unlikely Remnant was in your face but in a Christian kind of way. Some may think I’m crazy, but with reality shows like The Real Housewives, Love and Hip Hop and all these other worthless and human demeaning shows, Tracey Michae’l Lewis should look into making this into a reality show.

This book is for everyone, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Catholic, Atheist or anyone. At the very least, it will create a conversation even for the non-believer. Kudos to Lewis!
