“It Was Good That I Had Been Afflicted: Will the Power of Forgiveness Prevail?”: a true story of healing, is the creation of published author Bishop Cornelius E. Anderson, Jr., a pastor in Charlotte, North Carolina. He is a married grandfather and proud native of San Antonio, Texas, despite being born in Washington, D.C.

Bishop Anderson, Jr writes, “As a PK, believe me when I say I have had my share of hurt as a child growing up. It still baffles me as to why ‘the saints’ always targeted the pastors’ children. I can remember having to stand before my father on many occasions and try to defend myself against something one of the church members said against me. My father would make the statement, ‘So you’re calling them a liar?’ Even when I was right, I was wrong. How many pastors’ children refuse to go to any church today because of how they were treated as children growing up in church? This is not limited to PKs only but any leader in ministry who had children growing up in church. However, out of all that I experienced as a child growing up in church, you would have to wrap all the past pains up in a nice bundle, and they still did not compare to what I was faced with in my most recent experienced. … Do I allow it to destroy me emotionally and physically, or do I seek healing and become victorious?”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Bishop Cornelius E. Anderson, Jr’s new book is an insightful road to recovery and forgiveness parceled up in a personal chronicle of an overlooked brand of pain propagated within the church from those claiming to care.

Bishop Anderson, Jr bares all with a compassionate wisdom, ultimately recasting his painful history in a new light and bringing forth not just personal healing and peace of mind, but also calm understanding and Christlike forgiveness for those who have let him down.
