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. A Pentecostal minister with a 16,000-member church in Dallas and a television program, "Get Ready With T.D. Jakes," that reaches nearly 3 million viewers worldwide, Jakes recently launched a third career as an author. "The Lady, Her Lover and Her Lord" (Putnam) is his 14th book in five years.

Is America ready for another R-rated Jesus flick? Bishop T.D. Jakes, an evangelist who is frequently mentioned as a leading contender to replace Billy Graham as America's preacher, is betting on it in a new film that includes intense scenes of child rape, drug use, domestic violence and murder.

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.

Digital podcasts and streaming video might bring Christian audiences inspirational messages in the future, but they aren't bringing in the cash that broadcast ministries need to weather a painful economy. To make ends meet, religious broadcasters are tightening their belts and going back to basics. That means sticking with time-tested formulas, postponing innovations and counting on loyal (largely senior) audiences to keep donating even when it hurts.

For years, the motto of the Essence Music Festival has been "party with a purpose." This year may be the one year where the purpose overshadows the party. Forced to relocate from its longtime home in New Orleans to Houston due to Hurricane Katrina, this year's event, which kicks off today and ends Monday, promises the usual array of top celebrity performers, including Jamie Foxx, LL Cool J, Toni Braxton and a New Edition reunion with Bobby Brown.

First-time feature director Kat Coiro gives an oft-tread story a snappy new spin in the hip and enjoyable comedy "Life Happens.

With the child's me-first, surf star dad (Rhys Coiro, Kat's husband) decidedly absent, Kim must navigate the demands of single motherhood, her thankless job assisting a hellish canine patron (Kristen Johnston)

The relationship drama "Not Easily Broken" comes from a novel by Pentecostal preacher T.D. Jakes, a novel that takes its title from an Old Testament passage about putting God at the center of marriage. The movie may be preaching to the choir -- and every inch of it feels like a sermon -- but it's a pretty decent homily, heartfelt and strongly delivered by a committed cast headlined by Morris Chestnut and Taraji P. Henson.
