The Undershepherd
6 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

This movie tells the truth of many of our churches today. This movie should be a training film for all churches who are seeking a new pastor. All churches do not have this problem, but many churches do and their problems are swept under the rug. I applaud Russ Parr in boldly opening up a discussion about drama in the church. Isaiah Washington does not disappoint as usual - his arrogance is true to form, representing many of the young ministers today who seek nothing but power, fame and fortune, at any cost. Sadly, today's young ministers seemingly have forgotten their mission should be preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and reaching the unsaved. Vanessa Bell Calloway's character represents the powerful voice that women should have in church today. In the black Baptist Church, women are ostracized regarding leadership capacities (Trustees and Deaconess). Vanessa was magnificent. Is this movie available for purchase?
