Rev. William Carter, Jr. wants you to eat your Ps. No not the vegetable, but in the words of Bishop Gilbert L. Evans: “every Christian must Praise, Purging, Prayers, Promises, Persecution, Proverbs, and Purpose.”
William Carter, Jr. takes you on an eclectic journey through his religious upbringing. His Methodist father and Pentecostal/Holiness mother exposed him to every facet of their religious beliefs and let him choose. What could have been a recipe for disaster turned out to be a formula for omnidirectional wisdom. Eat Your Ps details the bridges Carter built that meticulously connect Christians of every denomination to seven core essentials they must focus on to thrive.
“One of the main reasons I wrote the book is because churches have allowed denominational differences to divide our religious communities,” said Carter, Jr. “Because Christianity is becoming less popular in today’s society, I feel that we should refocus on the things that matter most which are the things that unite us so that we can stand together as a united front. The principles discussed in the book help accomplish this.”
Author Carter has an impressive platform, as he is no novice to the Arts. This Dove Award nominated songwriter, currently on the billboard charts, and senior pastor of a thriving congregation is a well-known icon within both his international church organization and the Gospel music industry. With a foreword by the president of the American Baptist College and an endorsement from Oprah’s Dad, Eat Your Ps is poised to take the literary world by storm.
This gap-bridging book shuns the aspects of denominational-ism that have separated Christians. Alternatively, it explores the seven fundamental spiritual super-foods every Christian must ingest to be effective and relevant within this ever-changing society.
Archbishop Wayne Felton of The Holy Christian Cathedral called Eat Your Ps a disciple-worthy tool for trans-generational and trans-denominational audiences.
According to Felton, Eat Your Ps is “a profoundly engaging, intelligently arranged, and marvelously adept mine of wisdom.”
“Comparing the Christian life to eating a variety of peas may seem a bit unorthodox until you dig into the pages and see the purpose and wisdom of the analogy,” said Crystal Bowman, best-selling, award winning author of more than 100 books including Our Daily Bread for Kids, Does God Take Naps? and M is for Manger. “Whether you are Baptist, Pentecostal, Presbyterian, or another denomination, the biblical principles creatively outlined in this book will deepen your spiritual journey.”
