"A Million Blessings" by Angela Benson, Marilynn Griffith, and Tia McCollors

How would your life be affected if you won the lottery? Would it solve all of your problems or just bring you more?


A Million Blessings is a book of three short stories that examine those questions. Playing the lottery is a contentious issue in the Christian church and for three people they're going to find out why.


In Showers of Blessing by Angela Benson Andrew Gooden is an assistant pastor who is down on his luck. Addicted to gambling, he is just about to lose everything. But a winning lottery ticket saves him. Will he be able to use his winnings to build his dream church, or will his addiction consume him even more?


In Second Chance Blessings by Marilynn Griffith pro football player Craig Richards is dealing with an injury that has caused him to lose everything, including his wife. After moving back home he begins to put together a new life for himself, until a second shot at fame comes calling. Will he risk everything for fame and fortune?


In A Knight in Pink Armor by Tia McCollors Dara Knight has decided to use her multimillion dollar windfall to make a difference in a poverty-stricken community. But just when she thinks everything is going to turn out well a neighbourhood gang sets out to destroy all she is working for. Will she stick to her motives or or will she be run out of town?


Benson, Griffith and McCollors are all fabulous, established Urban Christian writers. Putting these three authors together into one book is a great way to introduce readers to the genre. If you're not familiar with Urban Christian this book is a great place to start. If you are a fan of the genre, you will love seeing three great authors together in one book.

  1. I don't read much Christian fiction, so I'm curious, what does urban Christian writing mean? Urban as in set in the city? It's also interesting to me that playing the lottery is an issue in some Christian churches. A Knight in Pink Armor has a fun title and sounds like a great read :)

    And thank you for joining the poc reading challenge! I look forward to being able to find some more poc Christian fiction through your blog.
