Amazon.com description: Product Description: As the Bible thumpin', don't-you-dare-sass-me Sister Betty, Pat G'Orge Walker performs at churches, universities, writers' conferences, and on Chicago's WYCA radio. Now, she brings Sister Betty and her adventures to a wider audience with this uplifting collection of tales and spiritual teachings, straight from Pelzer, South Carolina and the Ain't Nobody Else Right But Us--All Others Goin' to Hell Church.

When God Calls, Sister Betty Answers

It was back on a Wednesday afternoon in 1984 when Sister Betty got a telephone call from God--and what He told her is the topic of the hilarious title story in this new collection. Introducing Sister Betty and her friends--snuff-taking, big-hearted Ma Cile, her two grandkids from up North, Lil Bit and June Bug, and neighbors including the gorgeous, red-haired Sister Connie Fuse--each of these seven tales serves up lessons about love and life, with a big helping of humor.

Rascals and reprobates such as flirtatious Deacon Laid Handz, man-hungry spinster Sister Carrie Onn, jealous choir director Brother Mythang, and scheming Reverend Knott Enuff Money hold a mirror up to everyone's shortcomings. The landmarks of the little town of Pelzer, such as the Homeboyz All-Nite-All-Day parking lot, provide comic relief. And yet for all the lightheartedness, each story ends with an important message about the gifts of God and the strength found in black church traditions.

As irrepressible as Sister Betty herself, Pat G'Orge Walker celebrates the gospel heritage and abiding faith of African Americans with her creation of an unforgettable character and her delightful comic sketches of modern life. Reading even one guarantees to bring a burst of laughter--and the sunshine of God's word--into your day.

Includes A Teaser Chapter For Pat G'orge Walker's New Book, Mother Eternal Ann Everlasting Is Dead
