Bishop Eddie Long’s Son Edward Long Releases Book ‘Son of a Bishop,’ Appears on YouTube’s Unwine With Tasha K…

Hello World,

So a lot went down when I was in the motherly way and I missed some things…but I’m trying to catch up!

I noticed through my analytics that a post I did on Bishop Eddie Long’s son Edward Long back in 2019(Bishop Eddie Long’s Son Edward Long Carves Out Radio Career Following Dr. Jamal Bryant Becoming New Birth Missionary Baptist Church’s Pastor… has been receiving a lot of attention lately so I Googled his name to determine why…After a few minutes, I realized why people were suddenly coming to After the Altar  Call to learn more about Edward Long…He was interviewed by Tasha K on her YouTube channel Unwine With Tasha K.  in April. (Yes, Cardi B.’s Tasha K…) I have yet to listen to the whole interview, but I plan to do so when I have time…

However, I missed that Edward Long released a book “Son of a Bishop” back in January…Below is the description of the book…

ED Long, Jr. is a true prodigy, whose multi-dimensional talents and alluring personality make him the eye-catching 3rd generation global minister, award winning music artist and intrepreneurial multimedia producer. ED is also son of Grammy award winning, Telly award winning, Trumpet award winning author & trailblazing pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, Bishop Eddie Lee Long. ED Long, Jr. shares heartfelt memoirs concerning he and his father, Bishop Eddie Lee Long, to aid parents in connecting with their offsprings and to empower the next generation with tools for developing their voice while embracing the responsibility of inherent legacy.

QUESTIONNAIRE

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a preacher’s kid?

Are you looking for help on how to develop your own personality while being under

the umbrella of influential parents?

Are your parents leading or serving in a ministry?

Do you need help navigating the nuisances of balancing your personal growth and

development with the calling or pressures of ministry?

Are you pastoring or leading a ministry while also parenting?

Are you struggling to relate to your son or daughter?

Are you looking for insight on how to help them to live a normal life while ensuring that they develop a relationship with Jesus Christ and their own calling?

Apparently, “Son of a Bishop” was endorsed by Bishop Paul S Morton Sr….See that endorsement below…

“He (ED) is getting into what it’s all about being the son of a bishop. I was a son of a bishop, so I know the privileges, but I also knew the pressure. You need this book, it is going to bless you. Many of you are in leadership, you need this for yourself, you need this for your children so that they will be able to relate as son or daughter of leadership.” – Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr.

Looks like he recently held a book signing…

Apparently, yesterday he raised money to support pancreatic cancer as his father suffered from this disease…

And the happiest news of this post is that Edward Long and his wife are expecting a baby as a baby shower was recently held according to his social media…See the picture below…I see his mother Mrs. Vanessa Long is in the picture as well…

I won’t rehash the allegations against Bishop Eddie Long in this post, but we all know what they were. And I’m not downplaying the allegations either…They were what they were…That being said, as a pastor’s daughter, I empathize with Edward Long the most. I’m glad that he is finding a way to reconcile his relationship with his deceased father and he is moving forward with his life…

WRATH: A SEVEN DEADLY SINS STORY

Saturday, April 16 at 8/7c

After single lawyer Chastity Jeffries (Michelle Williams) meets Xavier Collins (Antonio Cupo), he seems to be everything she is looking for in a partner—handsome, smart and a lawyer as well. As his affection turns to obsession, Chastity realizes that she has been swept up by Xavier’s passion and abandoned her principles. When Xavier’s jealousy and wrath lead to suspicious actions and dangerous threats, Chastity confides in her mother Sarah (Tina Knowles-Lawson) and turns to her former childhood boyfriend Roger Thompkins (Romeo Miller). But in the end, it is Chastity that will have to fight to save herself.

 

GREED: A SEVEN DEADLY SINS STORY

Saturday, April 23 at 8/7c

Interior decorator Zuri Maxwell (Monique Coleman) had it all – a career she adored, loving family and friends, and a good man in her life, artist Stephon Gardner (Nathan Witte). But greed threatens to destroy everything when Zuri meets handsome benefactor and entrepreneur Godfrey Anderson (Eric Benét) and his fabulously wealthy aunt Miss Viv (LisaRaye McCoy). They have everything Zuri thinks she wants. As Godfrey romances her, she compromises the values and morals that should guide her in an effort to be part of the moneyed world she so desperately wants to be part of.

And if you’re a fast reader, you still have time to read both books Wrath & Greed before the movies air!

Aside: I hope I won’t embarrass Victoria by mentioning this but she along with many other friends and loved ones contributed to my baby shower gift registry. I don’t mean to single out her contribution but since this post is about her books, her generous contribution, in particular, helped us buy our cribs for our twin girls! So please support this generous author 🙂
