John Frady’s new mystery novel “Bad Preacher” (published by WestBow Press) explores the question of why good people choose to do questionable things through the character of Pastor Brad Johnson.

“I think we all struggle with this topic, but I certainly have personal experience with it,” Frady says. “I began thinking about this project when I found a $100 bill on the floor of the worship center of the church where I serve. I found another staff member and we put it in the offering box together, but it caused me to wonder what would have happened had I not made that decision.”

Making a mistake at the worst possible moment is what gets Pastor Brad into trouble. Offerings were down, and tensions were up. Somehow, someone was draining church funds. The deacons were upset, and the congregation was worried. After one service, Pastor Brad finds cash on the floor of his office and puts it in his Bible for safekeeping. Little does he know that his actions will set into a motion a course of events where he will be accused of theft, gambling, adultery and drug use. To prove his innocence, Pastor Brad vows to uncover the mystery of the missing church offering.
