Outside the Eso Won bookstore in Baldwin Hills, women hid under their flowered hats for close to five hours, determined to outlast the heat wave and be first to meet T.D. Jakes.

After a shocker of a prologue, "Woman, Thou Art Loosed" cuts to a preacher visiting a young woman on death row in an unnamed prison. The minister is the real thing, Bishop T.D. Jakes, and three years ago Time magazine put him on its cover as "America's best preacher." This powerful picture, which Stan Foster adapted from Jakes' novel, is the real thing too, showing just how rape can damage a child for life.
