B.J.T Ledet, a Baton Rouge educator, has delivered another enthralling new adult story of family, church, and scandal from the small city and congregations of Blanks, Louisiana. Using romance, family scandals, and murder, The Christians triology questions who is and is not a Christian and how the interactions between family and friends impact the spiritual growth of young adults.


The Christians Book One follows the life and love of Mary Jean Woods, a young, Christian woman in 1960 South Louisiana as she maneuvers through self-discovery, unrighteousness, and betrayal in hopes to find a true spiritual identity.

The Christians deals with the distinctive differences and interactions between the characters who consider themselves Christians and those who don’t. Meet ministers who are in the business of religion instead of uplifting the people and teaching them to love. Meet the ‘show and tell’ flock alongside the church Mothers who have tunnel vision and live in the past.

Through this first release, B.J.T Ledet weaves a story that answers “What exemplifies a Christian?”  using characters who boldly feel right–even all-knowing– in their beliefs when they are flawed and some are fallen. Wait til you read how these scandals evolve into The Secret Lives of Men.
